The campus connects to the community through recently constructed greenways, shared studio space in the River Arts District, and numerous events and activities including summertime Concerts on the Quad as well as cultural events and special academic programs. UNC Asheville fields 16 NCAA Division I teams, competing in the Big South Conference, and in 2016 the university earned national attention as both the men’s and women’s basketball teams ended their regular seasons with conference championships and advanced to the NCAA tournament.UNC Asheville student in class
