RE: My Neighbor Has a UNCW Sticker on His or Her Car
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?

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.

Evan, I think that logic is flawed a bit. Yes, one of the "big" schools is in Miami and even larger schools in larger cities like L.A. but how many people can easily find Columbus, College Station, Chapel Hill, etc?

Conversely, a large number of people could point to Philadelphia on a map and not even know Drexel exist. Almost anyone can find NY on a map and be clueless about Hofstra.

My point is that not all big time programs are in big time cities/locations, and vice versa.

There is something to "being the only show in town". When i first moved to Wilmington i didn't know a thing about UNCW. But being a huge sports fan my whole life, once i attended a hoops game it was all over from there. In Wilmington you get the coverage, in Boston, Philly, NY, you aren't even second fiddle you are about twelfth!

Like that too with CofC in Charleston. Less so than with UNCW, but after I went to my first game in the new arena in the 2009-10 season, I was hooked. There's a minor league hockey team here, but pretty much from January-March, this is a CofC town (Citadel and Charleston Southern have a smaller following and most people didn't follow the Gamecocks until last year).

Get 5,000 people in the arena on a cool winter night, and it is the place to be in town.
