It is my pleasure to welcome you to The University of North Carolina at Pembroke!  I am excited that you have decided to join our family and I hope you will take advantage of the many opportunities and resources available to our campus.

The Division of Student Affairs puts students first every day.  We are committed to providing you with quality programs, activities, and services that will enhance and enrich your academic experience.  Intellectual, social, cultural, physical, and emotional development opportunities are at every corner of your journey at UNC Pembroke.  We provide experiences for our students that align with the mission and strategic plan of the university; we support and facilitate student success.

While it is important that your first priority be your academic studies, we encourage you to get involved in some of our many activities, which include student government, clubs and organizations, student publications, intramural sports, community service – just to name a few.  Our diverse co-curricular activities and programs provide personal and leadership development opportunities for each student.

Join us in building school spirit by supporting #BraveNation in athletic events on campus throughout the year.  Take advantage of the Jones Athletic Center which houses basketball courts, an aquatics center, racquetball courts, and a well-equipped fitness center.  Visit the University Center to meet friends for billiards, gaming, or bowling.  Stroll campus to take in the natural surroundings.  Most of all, start your journey at UNC Pembroke knowing that Student Affairs is here to make your experience one that will stimulate learning and build memories to last a lifetime.

Our doors are always open to you.   We’re glad you’re here.
