4 College Freshman

Transportation: Charlotte has on campus busing as well as buses that go around the city of Charlotte

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: The greek life here is great. They do a lot to help the community and the director over all the greek life is really nice she makes sure it's no harsh entry if you want to join. The Greeks stay in Greek Village which are nice houses on campus. The Greeks throw nice events for the rest of the students

5 College Freshman

Nightlife: There is always something to do on the weekend, you just have to choose what you want to do

5 College Freshman

Computers: UNCC has a 24 hour computer lab. The library is now open 24/7 so there is a lot of computers to use. Printing is pretty cheap, and the whole campus basically has wifi

Athletics: At UNCC we take great pride in our sports. We support varsity as well as intramural sports. School spirit here is just overall high especially with the addition of the football team

4 College Freshman

Academics: So far I have had a good experience with the academics here at UNCC the professors are nice and willing to help. The workload can be overwhelming but if you balance your time it's fine. Registration is the only thing that gets tricky. There are a lot of classes available but they fill up fast. So you may not get the exact one that you want.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't actually lived off campus but when I visit friends who do it seems like it's very nice and easy to get and they all seem safe

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I've seen some use of it but it's not anything that out of hand and people who choose not to definitely don't get pressured into it

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The Charlotte area is so diverse there are so many different places to eat.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: My financial aid did go okay, one thing I would say is the earlier you do it the better.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: UNCC accepts everyone. I think it's known for the strong diversity that is here. Everyone can be themselves and feel comfortable.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love on campus housing. I'm in a suite style with four bedrooms, so I have my own room and it's just great. I really do love living on campus. It's closer to everything and it gives you that sense of community. I would say all the dorm prices are reasonable because they are so nice. And once you become a sophomore and above you basically pick where you are staying instead of as a freshman it's first come first serve but still kind of like a lottery.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: In my opinion I think that UNCC campus is safe. We have over 50 sworn in officers who patrol 24/7. There is a transportation vehicle that runs at night to make sure if someone doesn't want to walk alone they don't have to. There is also the blue light system emergency poles basically everywhere

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Charlotte is such a big city and it is a lot to always do and places to go here. There are a lot of malls, and the Uptown area is lovely and has a lot to do as well. There's also carowinds theme park is you just want to go to an amusement park. There is so much to do here

5 College Freshman

Facilities: Most of campus is brand new so it gives you that modern urban feel. The campus has so much to do and offer as well. It's overall just a good school to come to. Dining halls are good, and there are places like Bojangles, Subway, Salsaritas, Chickfila, etc right on campus. There's even a movie theater. You don't really have to leave campus a lot if you don't want to. The dorms are all nice and new or newly renovated as well.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Charlotte has very rapidly changing weather if it's not the summer time but getting into fall and the spring months it can be hot some days, cold the next, rainy sometimes etc.

3 College Junior

Parking: Parking on campus is a job in itself. To find a good spot it would be wise to get to campus before the 9:30AM classes begin because that's when the majority of commuter students get to school and the parking gets full. Off-campus parking is available for a really great price, the only problem is walking to the campus which is quite a workout. The parking spots on campus are pretty small and people hitting your cars is a big problem because people can't park. You're not supposed to park outside of the lines, otherwise you're supposed to get a ticket, but I have not seen a ticket on anyone's car when they've parked outside of the lines.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are soooo many dining options off campus. We have everything from Indian Cuisine, Hibachi, Sushi, Mexican, and a lot of southern classics. It's not too expensive to eat off campus at all. The problem is how to get there from campus if you don't have a car. Some places offer discounts but a lot of the places offer specials which are really good.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: UNCC has had a couple of incidents with campus safety but most of them are really minor and usually the fault of the students. For example some students will leave their laptops, or other valuables alone in the library while they go to the bathroom or down to the coffee shop so that's the fault of the students. Don't leave your things unguarded anywhere because there is a chance someone will take it. Otherwise, crime is pretty low. I work late on campus and haven't had any problem walking around on campus. In reference to cars, there aren't too many break ins but people do hit your cars. I've witness someone hitting a parked car and have actually been a victim of it. People can't park within the lines on campus so sometimes you have trouble getting into your car in the first place. Overall, crime is really low on campus and I feel safe in the long run. Campus police walk around a lot now compared to before too so that makes me feel better.

3 College Junior

Transportation: First off, it pays a lot of money to park on campus. I have my own car and I honestly don't feel like I should have to pay what I pay. The availability of parking is horrendous. If you want a good parking spot, your best bet is to get there before the 9:30AM classes begin because that's when the majority of commuters begin their day. On-campus, there are buses that run periodically. Coming from a commuter I see them quite frequently around campus. You're able to walk anywhere around campus but the buses are there for people to use. There are cars to rent and some resident students do have cars so usually people carpool whenever there's somewhere they need to go.

4 College Junior

Drug Safety: I commute to campus so I don't know how bad the it is in the dorms but from my point of view it is honestly not that bad. I hang out with friends who drink but they don't pressure me to drink at all. You do hear about people talking about their plans to drink on the weekends or during breaks but they're of drinking age. Again, I commute so I don't know how it is in dorms.

3 College Junior

Computers: I'll start with the internet. Our internet is available everywhere on campus HOWEVER, the internet is very bad. Depending on which building you're in, you either have it or you don't despite the fact that they made it campus wide. It also depends on how many people are on the internet. If there are a lot of people on the internet at one time, chances are you won't have any access. Exam week is an awful time to be on the wifi. Your best bet would be to hop on a computer in the library if you really want the best internet connection. Printers are available everywhere and you're able to print from anywhere using your phone, laptop, or tablet. You don't need a computer but it's a lot more convenient if you do bring your own. It makes it easier to take notes and do research.

3 College Junior

Weather: Charlotte has really up and down weather during the end of winter. One day it'll be 70F and the next it'll be 50F. Overall it doesn't get too cold (I think the lowest this year was around the lower 20s). When it snows, school is cancelled 99% of the time which is great and you don't make up the days at all. During the summer it's very pretty and gets really warm. It does get super hot every now and then but the scenery makes up for it. Whenever it's hot, everyone is walking around and the campus looks really populated which is how it should be. People are bike-riding, having picnics, exercising, and doing work outdoors. It's really nice to see people outside and all the cold winter months where everyone stays inside.

5 College Junior

Academics: My major is Exercise Science and I personally love my major. You get to really learn your professors here. There's not many of them so you end up having several of them a couple of times during the major. You get to know your classmates as well because we all have the same classes together even though there is a lot of us. The professors really care about our well-being and they're really cool people. The workload isn't that bad, but you have to make sure you know your stuff. You end up certified as an Emergency Medical Responder, CPR/AED, and Bloodborne Pathogens as a class requirement. These certifications will also be needed during senior year of the major since we have to obtain an internship. Overall the major itself is really cool and the building we're in is also getting renovated so future generations will have an awesome facility!!

5 College Junior

Diversity: UNC Charlotte is really a diverse campus. There are people who come to study here from a lot of different countries to study here and it's really cool to interact with these people. There are many different accents and was that you can learn about different cultures as well.
