3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There aren't very many places, but the options available are good. (chipotle, cookout, ect.)

3 College Freshman

Academics: Some of the classes are hard. Many special study options are available, but they don't really help.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I don't live off campus. I think living on campus is very convenient.

1 College Freshman

Computers: My wifi in my dorm is ALWAYS turning off. I contacted campus tech support and they told me that there is nothing they can do. It does it for everyone.

2 College Freshman

Parking: I can never find a parking space by my dorm. I always have to walk a long distance.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: The gym is so small. If you don't get there early a lot of the equipment will not be available.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The campus is not very strict, unless it comes to parking.

3 College Freshman

Weather: The weather is usually unpredictable. Some days its hot, while other days it is raining and cold. When it is hot, walking to class is not the move.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: The police walk around the dorm halls to make sure that you aren't loud and disturbing people on the weekends. If you are too loud and you have alcohol, they will most likely write you up.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I know some greeks, they aren't really a lot on campus.

2 College Freshman

Transportation: The buses on campus do not run on Friday, Saturday or Sunday. There is also a 2 dollar bus fee for the busses that go off campus.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: They are many options for off-campus housing, especially since the school is expanding and many new developments have been increasing. Most of the affordable apartments are you get what you paid for. The newer apartments are pretty expensive though. Most of the closer apartments are made especially for room-mates (pay for your room only). If you want something different you have to venture out a little more. There are many town homes, and homes to choose from as well.

4 College Junior

Diversity: I see a lot of acceptance. There are plenty of students from different backgrounds that work together in groups and work pretty well together. There are many religious groups as well, and I never see anyone making the people part of the groups uncomfortable.

College Junior

Athletics: I don't usually attend sporting events etc.

3 College Junior

Computers: There are some buildings on campus which will not let you get on the Wi-fi. The library is the best place to go for that. They have printers in the library and in all computer labs but you need to make sure you have money on your ID card to use them.

5 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: I love Charlotte. You have the parks and greenways to take advantage of, the suburban areas with their malls and shopping strips. Then you have downtown with bars and clubs. South Charlotte has an art district which reminds me a bit of Brooklyn, NY. It's a great place to visit if you're into art/beer/food.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I don'y participate in Greek Life, but I've met some people who are and they say they love being in their Greek community.

4 College Junior

Transportation: If you are trying to get from one side to the opposite of campus, you have the campus shuttle at no cost to you. They even have an app to let you know when your bus is going to be showing up. I take public transportation and at a cost of only two dollars, it isn't too bad. Taxis are always expensive but they are usually parked all around campus so you never have to wait to long for one.

4 College Junior

Nightlife: If you know the right people, you can get invited to a decent party. The campus is a 20 minute drive to the city where you will find plenty of bars and clubs.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Freshmen year I stayed in the oldest buildings on campus. They were very small, value was pretty low, had to wake up early to get hot water, and not much of a community. The newer buildings are nice, and make you feel more at home.

3 College Junior

Academics: Most of the workload is independent study- where the professors just go through the chapters but you have to make sure you read and go through the material yourself. Emails are sent out informing you of any opportunities coming to the university in your major which is very helpful.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: When I lived on campus, it was fairly strict, if you made too much noise you would be checked up on. I have never encountered a problem with anyone. Some professors has attendance policies in place, and are extremely strict about. There are some professors that do pop up quizzes to ensure attendance, and some professors that feel like it is up to you whether you want to come to class- and if you fail you put that upon yourself.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: If you're trying to find something within a 2 mile radius, you have a good variety. There is the fast food drive up windows, and places where you can sit down and eat. You can definitely find something to eat, unless you're vegan/vegetarian. I'm pretty satisfied with what charlotte offers. You just need to venture out and go look. The school gives out coupon books with surrounding restaurants and businesses which is nice to have.

3 College Junior

Majors: Depending on what professors you end up with, you could get a great professor that will inspire you or a professor that made you wish you took a different pathway.

4 College Junior

Majors: Getting accepted to UNCC was easy, with a 3.9 GPA from high school. Now it is getting a bit more difficult to get admitted. The advisors do a great job trying to help you with picking your major, and making sure that is what you want to do.
