University of North Carolina Wilmington

University of North Carolina WilmingtonCommunity oriented. A student body of 12,000 students, bachelor’s degree-seeking UNCW Seahawks can choose among 52 majors.  When not hitting the books, join other UNCW community oriented students, all 4,700 of them who volunteered over 51,000 hours of service!  Save some room for the 200+ student groups and events!

Indianapolis University Purdue University IndianapolisThere’s more than corn in Indiana! At IUPUI you’ve got over 10,000 class choices – and more than 200 programs awarded from either Purdue University or Indiana University.  IUPUI’s 29,000 students can choose from unique degrees, like motorsports engineering, while enjoying downtown Indianapolis – and the Indy 500.

State University of New York PlattsburghGreat day in the morning. Be close to the outdoors – and just an hour away from vacation hot-spots like Montreal, Canada and Lake Placid, Vermont!  SUNY Plattsburg majors range from Expeditionary Studies (think rock and ice climbing to sea kayaking) to Foreign Languages and Literature or Military Studies.

Mississippi State UniversityMore cowbell! The state’s largest university, MSU bulldogs enjoy a 14:1 student to faculty ratio – which means you have a chance to really get to know your professors.  Just don’t be late to class, there’s no excuse — not with the 400+ clocks in The Cullis & Gladys Wade Clock Museum in the Welcome Center lobby!

Texas State UniversityEverything’s bigger in Texas. At least, that’s true for the large TSU student body: over 30,000 students call the 457 acre San Marcos campus “home.” There aren’t only a lot of students – there are also a lot of undergraduate degrees to choose from: 101 of them, in fact! Great news for those undecided major types!

Arizona State UniversityAffordable? You bet – ASU offers almost half a billion dollars in financial aid each year! What began on a twenty acre cow pasture turned teacher’s college now spans the Phoenix, Arizona area with four college campuses.  Arizona State University holds more than 52,000 students!

Oregon State University –   Clean energy using treadmills? OSU students are all about “going green” – check out the Powered by Orange video series.  We’re talking renewable energy, local food, and innovation.  The 400 acre Oregon State University is one of only two universities in the country to hold land, sea, space, and sun grant titles (which means lots of research funding dollars flow in).

University of Central FloridaEveryday is a vacation! Okay, maybe not but with 1,400 acres making up UCF’s main campus in sunny Orlando, Florida, it might feel like it is.  Check out the 225 degree programs and more than 350 student clubs and organizations — the $4.4 million of academic scholarships for new students is just a fun little bonus.
