2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Financial aid is difficult to apply for and even more difficult to get.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Athletics at UNCC are great. Some sports such as football are still growing but the school definitely supports them. The facilities are great from what I've heard.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The Greek life at UNCC is very involved with the school. There is always something happening which is good and bad. It's exciting to see things happening on campus and in the community but it can get crazy with all of these different sororities and fraternities hosting all of these different events.

2 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking passes for on-campus parking are ridiculously expensive and on top of that, spots fill up very quickly. I resort to off campus parking to avoid the fuss. Off-campus parking is rough as well but I'd rather deal with that than trying to park on school property.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I am currently living with my parents at the moment, however the people that do live off campus are generally satisfied.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Everyone is so friendly and there are many different types of attractions to satisfy the desires of a diverse group of students. The city is close to the university which contains a vibrant night life if you catch it at the right time. The mountains are not far either, offering miles of trail, waterfalls, and scenic views.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: The international program is terrific. It is strongly suggested and it help diversify the environment, creating many different viewpoints and ideas that generate a better understanding of the different global cultures.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Financial aid is somewhat rough, as I imagine it is with every other school as well. There are a limited amount of scholarships that are available and they are SO restrictive. They did work with my parents and I to get the help that I needed but it was a little frustrating.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Nightlife at UNCC is dependent on who you know, or who you don't for that matter. Unless it is a fraternity or sorority party, most things will be happening off campus, so it is best to try and meet as many people as possible. With that being said, there are clubs for those under 21, but I would not recommend house parties. Most house parties get shut down rather quickly if they are close to UNCC, and if you are underage and get caught, more than likely you will get a ticket. Most people I know that plan on drinking and still want to go clubbing, ride a party bus that picks them up at a certain time and location, and brings them back. It is a lot safer than driving under the influence and risking someone's life; so for transportation that is a huge plus.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Drug usage on campus is strictly enforced by campus pd and ra's. I do not feel like anyone is peer pressured into doing any kind of drugs/alcohol that they do not want to do just to fit in.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: I have never had problems with the computers on campus whenever I have had to use them. The network always seems to be up and it is usually fast. The wi-fi around campus is aggravating at times though, because you can lose connection from your phone within seconds. Printing on campus stinks because you have to pay per page, so it is best to buy your own printer.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Although at times it seems not, UNCC is pretty diverse. It is not hard to join different groups/organizations on campus to find this type of diversity either. Alot of the organizations on campus are uniquely diverse.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Athletics is becoming even more popular than before with the addition of the new football team. This addition has created a new wave of school spirit unlike any other. Also, there are plenty of resources provided for those who want to stay physically fit. Our student activity center provides a gym, a variety of different basketball courts, a track, and even classes throughout the week ranging from zumba to super abs.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life at UNCC could be better, but the numbers are increasing. Statistically, there are only a small number of students who "go greek" when compared to the entire student body. There are constant efforts to plan new events to get students interested in greek life and to help out in the community. Personally, I do not feel Greeks are held up to a higher standard than non-Greeks, but that everyone is on the same playing field.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I absolutely love the major program I am in. As a criminal justice major, the professors and the classes I have taken so far are great and if I could do it over again I definitely would. As of right now, I do not have any concerns about finding a job in my field.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: The only thing that I did not like about having to get into the Criminal Justice program was that I had to write an essay just to get in. I understand that they want to make sure that the students are at the same level as everyone else before the jump straight into the program, but it was a little pointless to me. However, with this being the first year that it has been implemented, I would love to see how well it goes. Apart from the essay, the only other requirements were that you had to have sixty or more hours and that you maintain a 2.0 GPA; which is nothing too out of the ordinary. If there was one tip I could give, it would be to pay attention in the Intro classes because most of the important things will be taught during that time.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: How the weather affects our area is comparable to almost every other area. Although we never have ridiculously bad weather, whenever it rains, nobody wants to go out and "live it up." So with that being said, it's the same as anywhere else.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The local atmosphere around UNCC is great. There are tons of things to do, even if you do stay on campus. Not only is Concord Mills close to the school, but lots of other places that would provide anyone with a great time.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There is a restaurant with in every 100 yards of Charlotte, possible even less. Every chain restaurant you could want and even a few unique places to the Charlotte area. There is Japanese, Italian, Mexican, American-grille, Chinese, and so much more! I'm never out of options when it comes to grabbing some non-campus food. There are places surrounding campus, most even deliver. And nothing is outrageously expensive, the business owners know their main customer; college kids. It's really nice to be able to leave campus and get a nice inexpensive meal from one of my favorite places.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: UNCC is a laid back university to go. If you don't cheat, do drugs, or throw parties in your dorm every other day, then you are set to staying out of trouble. Academic integrity is set very high here. Students are kicked out almost always if cheating or honor code violations are suspected. Drugs are a big no no here. And they should be- waste of time and money. They make remind students that the priority is to learn and get a great education. Just follow the rules and everything will be smooth.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: The school computers are sad. Library, computer labs, etc. All slightly outdated but I get it, it would be an ungodly amount of money to supply new computers every year. However there are Mac labs- which are very nice. I currently have a class in one of those Mac labs. And the computers supplied for on campus jobs and special departments are nice as well. I work at Niner Media and have my own Mac desktop. It's way nicer than my personal computer.

Having a laptop is essential in college. The library won't always be the most ideal place to check moodle and type a paper. Ex. crowding, noise, slowness of computer systems, inconvenience. If an upcoming freshmen were to tell me that they were coming to school without their own computer, I would pray for them.

The net works around campus are fair, could be better. Almost everywhere on campus doe receive wireless access. Dorm room wifi is surprisingly reliable too.

Printing on campus will cost every time. Anywhere from .10-.30 a page. There are quite a few printers in the library, maybe 20+?

Overall average for computer/printer access and use.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: UNCC is in Charlotte for crying out loud! If there isn't anything going on at campus or around the block, then the hundreds of clubs in Uptown Charlotte are very promising to those who like to drink and dance their weekend nights away. Always something going on for those who are looking.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: UNCC could do a better job of providing financial aid, grants, and scholarships to students. I looked up scholarships today for my specific field of study and there were only 6 offered. Of those 6 I qualified for 1. Very disappointing. Just because I'm not a minority or the top of my class, doesn't mean I am lacking in financial worries over school. I worked hard to get here, and even harder to stay. I don't want the financial debts to stress my family or myself. I am more than willing to apply for more scholarship but it would be nice if there were more to choose from. Financial aid is a headache. I've received a little help from them but it's almost pointless if FASFA isn't submitted by priority deadline.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I personally have yet to live off campus, but I do know there are so many options. There are apartment complexes everywhere. All surrounding a five mile radius of campus. Some are even in very easy walking distance to campus (higher priced though). Most are very nicely decorated, built, and spacious, but all of them charge an arm and a leg. It's unfortunate to be making a capital off of needy college students who need shelter and a relaxing place to stay. The options are endless. And it's easy to get a lease underway. The off-campus housing is literally plastered in ads all over campus and social medias. If it was a little cheaper I think many more students would choose to leave on campus housing. Especially since it's easier to get what you want on the outside then with UNCC housing.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: UNCC has plenty of diversity. There are many, many different ethnicities and students of different background all blended into campus. Our exchange program is impressive. And the school loves to accept a mix of people. It is not predominantly "white" or "black" or female/male campus, it's a genuine even ratio of all of the above and more.
