Description

The University of North Carolina at Asheville is the designated undergraduate liberal arts university in the 16-campus University of North Carolina system. An outstanding learning community, UNC Asheville is committed to providing an excellent liberal arts experience for its 3,500 undergraduate students through challenging academic programs, exemplary teaching, and meaningful and diverse co-curricular activities. The scenic 265-acre mountain campus is located one mile north of downtown Asheville, the cultural, economic and population (75,000) center of the region. Known for outdoor opportunities in the surrounding Blue Ridge Mountains and a cosmopolitan downtown featuring coffee houses, restaurants, theaters, museums, galleries and craft shops, Asheville is rated one of the country's most livable cities. The university's Outdoor Program offers students hiking, backpacking, mountain biking, rock climbing and other outdoor adventures in the nearby Pisgah and Nantahala national forests, Great Smoky Mountains National Park and along the Blue Ridge Parkway. Canoeing, kayaking and whitewater rafting trips on the French Broad and other nearby rivers are among the many outdoor activities UNC Asheville students enjoy.
