School: University of North Carolina inGreensboro (UNCG)   

History: Founded in 1891, UNCG soon became an accredited Women’s College. Originally at 10 acres, 15 faculty members and 198 students, UNCG has grown to 2,010 acres, 2,500 faculty members and 18,600 students.

Classes: With a student/faculty ratio of 17:1, student education is every professor’s top priority. UNCG has a brilliant business program, a high-paced nursing program, and many other majors tailored to fit your personal interests.

Location: UNCG is conveniently located near downtownGreensboro. Campus life and activities differ greatly from the events occurring downtown, so you will never run out of exciting new things to do.

Cost: For roughly $12,000 per year, an education from UNCG repays your expenses in many more ways than one.
