10: Western Carolina Overall WC seems like a great college that i would enjoy a lot. I like the fact that its school color is purple; purple is my favorite color. I don't like that it's a little school and out in the middle of nowhere.
11: UNC Greensboro Overall UNCG seems like a great college also. I like it better than Western Carolina. I like the fact that it's a big school. I don't like that it is mainly white people. I wish it was more even as far as race wise.
