As noted earlier, I've not had the opportunity to visit UNC Asheville. Obviously my research about this school is based through the internet. However from what I've gathered, the school greatly fits my needs. Being that it is a part of the UNC system and that I can receive an education in biology, I feel confident about my attendance there. On a more personal note ...I was born and raised in the N.C. mountains (ashe county) and the Asheville region appears to be an opportunity for me to experience life in a larger city while still feeling close to my roots.
