3 College Sophomore

Academics: I am a nursing major and it is extremely time consuming. There are no scholarships available and internships and job opportunities are not made known.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: Professors are very poor and very hard to understand. Many are foreign and have thick accents. There are also not many majors to choose from.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek students believe that they are better than everyone else. I have friends who are Greek and they try to stay and make friends with only other Greek students. Their parties are also very private and unfriendly.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: Transportation on campus is free. Transportation to off campus locations is risky and possibly not safe in the city my school is in.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: There are not many parties at my school. Most of the parties are Greek parties and not many people are invited or let in. There is some nightlife uptown but it gets very old after a while.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: My school is about average, not too strict but not too lenient. Students are punished when it is deserved.

1 College Sophomore

Weather: When it rains the whole campus floods.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There are numerous officers driving around campus. Though, I have seen less and less of them as the year has progressed.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: There is a lot of segregation on campus and a lot of diversity. Many minorities stay to there own groups.

2 College Sophomore

Facilities: My school is growing at a very fast rate. All facilities and athletic facilities are too small to support the growing school population.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: There is nothing extremely unique at my school. We have the average school gym, facilities, and clubs. We just recently got a new football team, hopefully that will bring more traditions and distinction to our school.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: Many computer labs are only available to certain students within distinct majors. Computers in the library are extremely slow and it is always difficult to find an open computer.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My experience gas been great. The only large problem with my school and most likely others as well is that many professors today are researchers. This means they are not actual teachers. They are hired by the university to do research and only teach on the side in order to raise money to fund their research. This makes it very difficult to learn from inexperienced individuals. My school also just had its first ever football season. This brought the students together on a whole different level and was a great experience.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There is a lot more freedom living off campus, but driving to school in the morning is a pain. Especially because there is not much parking on campus, and parking passes are extremely overpriced.

2 College Senior

Parking: There is not enough parking for everyone that needs a space at the main parking decks, so they have had to build extra ones that are far away from academic buildings to try and get everyone. Permits are atrociously expensive, and so I don't even park on campus anymore. I have a place I go and park for free that is within walking distance of most my classes.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: I enjoyed living on campus because it was convenient and also because I was able to meet people I would not have been able to if I had lived at home. The dorms I lived in were very nice as well and had everything I needed. The cost was rather expensive, but I thought it worthwhile to live at school. I did not like, however, the limited options of eating healthily at school; there are just not a whole lot of good quality eating options unless one makes all his own food.

3 College Senior

Transportation: I never use the shuttle they have on campus because I prefer to walk and arrive places on my own time, and the shuttle times are not reliable enough to warrant using them. I have used our Safe Ride system, however, and this one has consistently performed well when I have needed to be home late at night when it is raining or something of the like.

3 College Senior

Athletics: UNC Charlotte's basketball team continues to improve with Coach Major at the helm, and the arrival this year of football created a whole new atmosphere at the school. I believe it will take some time though for people to really become excited for varsity sports, but it will come, especially when our teams consistently perform at a high level, which they have not for some time.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: A lot of people get away with a lot of stuff, it depends on what bothers you and if you report it or not.

2 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking here is good only when you know when to (after football games, weekends, etc.), during the school week and big events it's bad.

5 College Sophomore

Scholarships: As an athlete, I do not remember specifically all of the financial aid process but it has been extremely helpful to me in my (almost) 2 years here at UNCC.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I haven't used the health and safety facility very often, but when I had to get my insurance waiver the wait took a long time (it's probably because there are so many students here) but they could change the system so that it's more convenient.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The school is very diverse and has a lot of options in terms of majors and academics. The on-campus and off-campus options for living and eating are good and I love the diversity here (my high school wasn't very diverse at all).

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are many places off-campus that aren't too far (most people would consider you a "walker" if you went to these places) but there are great options not too far from campus.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: I'm not much of a "partyer" but of the ones I've went to have been walking distance and I've ended up enjoying myself. Also, they've all been off-campus and my friends have offered to take me to and fro.
