Why UNC Asheville?

Finding the right college is all about feeling a connection. As North Carolina’s designated public liberal arts university, that’s UNC Asheville’s specialty—connecting ideas, areas of study, and people. Connecting with you is our top priority, because each of our 3,800 students makes us who we are. With intentionally small classes and a curriculum you can customize, you’ll be at the center of your education so you, along with professors who’ll take the time to support and motivate you, can design the future you want. That’s what the liberal arts means to us.
