Never heard of this. How does this work? For years UNCW had been

falling behind many other UNC system schools in growth. I always wondered why UNCW didn't grow far more than it has. It only has one real national level program...marine biology. A great program. But most other programs are modest in comparison to those same programs at ECU: nursing, business, dental, medicine, education, engineering, music/arts/entertainment, etc. And their athletics simply never kept pace with even the CAA. I grew up near Wilmington and always viewed it as mostly a commuter school. While it is much more than that now, it certainly supports a robust commuter population, unlike ECU.
