I started school in 71 when Galloway open and the land it sits on is the only area that would support a high rise building.that is what everyone was told.

You needed at least one campus building that tall back then in order to feed the dinosaurs out of the window.

Thanks...seems odd that that specific piece of land is all that will support a high rise. Belk and G-H are 50 yards away in either direction. I'm not doubting what you were told, just seems odd. As Nation alluded to, the industrial revolution probably changed the capabilities on campus since you were in school.

I wonder if any of that is complicated due to parking constraints. Larger buildings require more and more parking accommodations which requires even more land usage. I know UNCW has tons of land but still...

They have a parking deck on campus now and could build higher decks if land would support it

Been so long since I've been there and actually cruised around the campus. Where's the parking deck?

I find it funny when people assume that giant schools are the best decision. Not that EvanJ was necessarily doing that, but by mentioning Florida schools, a lot of which are large, that would tend to be the case. For grad school/doctorate? Sure. But not always for undergrad. I like that I got taught by professors, not TA's, and wasn't treated like a number. I was able to get to know a lot of my professors in my time there.

I don't understand the glamour of mega-giant schools for an undergrad experience, except for 6 football Saturday's every Fall. That's about all they have on the Dub.
I was claiming that giant schools are the most popular decision. I wasn't trying to say what schools were the best decision. Not to insult small cities, but can't a lot more people find Miami on a map than find Wilmington?

I graduated last May and from my experience, while UNCW has gotten larger it has very much kept a "smaller" feel in terms of classes. I was never taught by a TA and most of my higher level business classes were just over 30 people
At Hofstra I never had more than 40 students in my classes other than Geology 1C, which had 59. The Business core classes are larger, such as a section of Accounting 101 with 75 students, but there I don't know of many classes with big capacities. I don't think Hofstra has TAs. To go along with that, Hofstra is more expensive. They say tuition is $43,960 and room and board is $16,790, for a total of over three times what bricksnivy estimated for out-of-state UNCW students.
