A very Happy Valentine's Day to everyone reading our blog! I hope that this day, commercial though it may be, has brought you the happiness, chocolate, and joy that you deserve. How is UNC Asheville celebrating this special day? There have been various activities in the past few days, but probably the biggest event, or should I say series of events, is "Lovefest," hosted by the Student Government Association. Lovefest lasts through Thursday; every day, students can attend a number of events related to the topic of love. Some highlights include "Friend Speed Dating" on Wednesday and "The Marriage Booth" on Thursday; there is something for everyone thanks to SGA! Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!
Imagine yourself in a vibrant community where learning is active, multifaceted and above all, personal. At UNC Asheville, classes are small, so you won’t be a nameless face in a crowded lecture hall. Instead, you’ll be digging into issues that matter, guided by professors who take the time to support and motivate you. Our hands-on approach gives you a new way of thinking through an integrated core curriculum — and opportunities that are normally available only in grad school. Here, you’ll engage with ideas, put them in action and use them to launch your own future.
Your UNC Asheville experience, both in the classroom and out, will prepare you for a wide range of possibilities. Our graduates say that thanks to their UNC Asheville education, they were ready when new doors opened that they hadn’t expected. And in today’s marketplace, that’s a definite advantage.
