4 College Junior

Health & Safety: The safety and health of it's students is a huge concern of UNCC. We have a huge building just for things such as medical needs and sexual assault patients. They have anything and everything a student should need.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: This is another subject where I do not know much about. I commute from my house. However, when visiting dorms I have noticed they are very small. However, I am a tall individual and I also enjoy my space. So I am partially biased.

4 College Junior

Nightlife: Charlotte in well known for its nightlife. I do not personally participate as I am under-aged and am far too busy studying and doing school work. However, I hear people talk about the nightlife constantly around campus.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: There are a pretty even number of guys and girls on campus. Most people are pretty friendly but also mind their own business for the most part. There are groups and places to meet new people all the time, however.

3 College Junior

Majors: I don't believe the requirements to get into a major are too high. However, I transferred in with a degree and the way things transferred made my application to the major a little strange. It's been irritating working around it but nothing unmanageable.

4 College Junior

Majors: A lot of students drop out of the Biology program because it is rigorous. Without a doubt one of the hardest majors at the university. However, when you succeed in the major and triumph against the high drop/fail rates then you truly feel like an accomplished graduate.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Especially in regards to basketball, intramurals are a big thing at UNCC. We just recently got a football team and that was a big deal this passed year.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: The food is pretty good. However, I just wish some of the things were more reasonably priced. Also, a lot of the food offered that isn't in the schools dining hall (which does have a small salad bar) does not offer much healthy food.

4 College Junior

Facilities: There are always students out and about around campus. We are right in downtown Charlotte and there are things to do not only in the city but all over campus as well.

3 College Junior

Academics: The physics department is lacking tremendously. The drop fail rate is horrendous and taking the class itself feels like a waste of time because the teachers just don't care. If someone didn't understand something (which usually was the entire class) it was shrugged off and class resumed. Class even had questions through out the class to check understanding and even when everyone missed them, questions were not entirely explained. However, for my major (Biology) There are a massive number of classes to take and many opportunities for internships and research study classes.

3 College Junior

Academics: It depends on the classes you take, the physics professors act like they don't care if you're alive or dead. However, the chemistry teachers are amazing and the math teachers were extremely helpful. It would be nice if my adviser was a little more helpful but I am used to obtaining information on my own research.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I don't know much about our school's greek life. Most of it is what kind of parties they're throwing or how cool they're new crews are. However, I have some good friends who are in some very upstanding fraternities and they are very smart men who also love to benefit the community.

4 College Junior

Diversity: There are always different kinds of students on campus. Ethnically, economically, religiously, and sexually oriented. People of different types, places, and backgrounds all over campus. That is one of UNCC best Qualities.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: The worst thing about the strictness is the parking. We pay an incredible $450 a year just for a chance at parking. There is never a guaranteed spot. You just have to show up an hour before class and hope someone is leaving so you can get a spot.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The Greek atmosphere is very apparent on campus. I have seen that many Greek students are opinionated and think that they are better that non-Greeks but there are also those who get along with everyone. Greek housing has a designated section on the outskirts of campus. They are all white buildings with pillars.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: I like the fact that they are building the new South Village Dining Hall. I would say that eating on campus is not that great. I ended up wasting much of my meal swipes because the food just looked so bad, especially in RDH. I hated walking half way across campus just to get some decent food at Crown. The hours were horrible. RDH closed around 9, I think. People get hungry while studying late at night especially around midterms and finals. It would be nice to have a 24 hour on campus dining hall.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: The girls on campus are nice. Most of the guys look like tools honestly.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I would say that living on campus is a great experience. It is a great way to meet friends especially if you are out of state. That's where I met many of my friends, in the dorm. Living in a dorm can be bad at times but ultimately I'm glad I did it. You really get to know the people you live so closely with. Everyone is friendly and willing to talk to you.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love my school. I love the location and the size of the college. It is a large school but not too large. I love that it is in a big city. I have really enjoyed my professors and I really learn a lot from them. I loved taking my online level two Russian the first half of the summer. I would say what makes my school unique is the fact that it is so new. It is continuously growing and I like that.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletics are great! This past year was our first year having a football team and that really got the campus as well as alumni excited. I always went to the basketball games. I went to a few soccer games. Most people are up for going to any type of game on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: I love living in my city. Living on the biggest city in North Carolina is amazing. I love it. There is always something to do. There are museums, restaurants, sports, and walking around the city itself is nice.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: It wasn't a hassle. I attended meetings at school with my parents and worked step by step.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: For the most part, campus strictness is fine. Parking services needs to be evaluated though. Parking services is borderline harassment with tickets/violations to students who already pay a good amount for tuition and for a parking pass.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: The campus is very diverse and everyone seems to get along with everyone. I like the atmosphere on campus because it's very accepting of everyone.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I love being an international studies major. I love studying Russian as well. It really suits me well because I really enjoy learning foreign languages.
