Suitcase school?

<p>My name is Alexis and I have applied to UNCW for the regular decision. The tuition is awesome especially since I'm on a budget. My only worry is that UNCW would be a "suitcase school." Since I live in Connecticut I wouldn't be able to go home on weekends and it would be terrible if the campus was barren. Anyone know if the school is like this or not?</p>

<p>I'm trying to figure out the same thing, because am from California and I don't want to go to a school where it's deserted on the weekends.</p>

<p>This is my daughter's first choice and she too will be coming from out of state. After speaking with friends that already attend the school from out of state, they love the school and have never mentioned this being an issue. There are a lot of activities that are posted on their website and I know my daughter is excited to be involved in the school since she can't (and does not) want to come home on the weekends.</p>

<p>I go to school here, and I can tell you that this is not an issue. I know of people who go home occasionally at the weekend, but it's not very often. There is a heavy out of state population, so there are always people around.</p>
