Lumbee Hall,



"Deciding where to go to College can be a very stressful process. But when I first learned about UNC Pembroke, they took the time to help me and handed me tons of important information, fast! As my freshman year progressed, I made many new friends, learned so much and realized UNCP really had become my second home. UNC Pembroke offers students so many wonderful opportunities to take advantage of. The small classes that UNC Pembroke offers lets students connect with their professors easily and they know you as your own name, not as number in a class. UNC Pembroke truly turns young individuals into today’s bright leaders. Throughout my four years here and now as an alumni, I have experienced the UNC Pembroke personal touch and I welcome you to do the same!"
