4 College Junior

Computers: Certain majors have access to nicer computer labs with more privileges. Computer Science students get unlimited printing in CS labs. Engineering students have the newest labs with a print quota. Labs that are open to all are also pretty nice, but printing costs a couple cents per page. 90% of the buildings have free wi-fi access. The network is very reliable, and the speeds are decent. The network speeds in some of the specialized labs are godly fast 100Mbps or more!

Parking: On campus parking is great, but it's very expensive. ($400) Also, during football season, there are certain lots reserved for tailgating party events. If you forget to move your car, it will be towed and you will have to pay $75 as a result. This can be very inconvenient. Off-campus parking is nearly non-existent. Some of the nearby apartment complexes have guest parking, where they do not tow non-resident vehicles, but the walk is not worth the hassle if you live on campus.

Campus Housing: The majority of the dorms on campus are really nice! Many of the horrendously old ones have been torn down and replaced. There are still a few that are waiting to be replaced, but they are still healthy clean living spaces. Every dorm has weekly events to encourage people to meet their neighbors, while learning to live as healthy, smart adults.

Drug Safety: Alcohol and drugs on campus are there, but not horribly noticeable. Most people keep it hidden pretty well and I don't do these things on campus, so I don't see it often. Most people who are old enough to drink legally, do it off campus. Those who aren't, go off campus with those who are.
Marijuana can be smelled in dorms occasionally, especially in freshman dorms, where students are testing boundaries. In upperclassmen dorms, people who smoke have either learned to take it somewhere else, or live off campus.
ADD medication is sometimes passed around to help with studying. This becomes more noticeable near exam time. I have a few friends who have tried it, but I personally don't touch the stuff. My mother is a mental health nurse, and she has told me that the majority of her patients can trace their mental illness to drug use, so I don't touch any of it.

Transportation: I have only carpooled or driven home, so I cannot say much about the other modes of transportation.

Academics: Being a Compute Science student at UNC Charlotte is great! The professors are very helpful. The early classes are easy, but the later ones can be very rough. If you find yourself struggling, there are free tutors available. Also students are encouraged to study in groups. Many businesses recruit directly from students in the Computer Science department for paid internships and full time positions. Some of these businesses include Bank of America, Vanguard, National Security Agency, Premier, IBM, and Microsoft. There are also merit-based scholarships awarded each year.

Academics: There are plenty of majors, minors, and fields of study to choose from. There are interesting elective courses, such as rock climbing, scuba diving, and the history of imagination also offered.

Local Atmosphere: There is always something to do, no matter what you like. If you are bored, it is your own fault! For people who love sports, all on campus sports games are free to students. There is also the NFL Panthers in Uptown Charlotte, and NASCAR for people who enjoy that. There are always concerts at the NC music factory and surrounding venues. The night life is amazing! There are so many bars and clubs to choose from, each with its own atmosphere and weekly events. There are beautiful parks everywhere, whether you want to throw around a ball/frisbee with friends, or take a romantic walk. There are 3 huge malls nearby, each with different atmosphere and shopping experience. Public transportation exists, but it isn't the best. The art district has nice art galleries and cafe's, and the famous Amelie's french bakery (open 24-7). Because this is a big city, there are also many opportunities for internships! Some of them even pay very well. Charlotte is a wonderful place to be!

Off-Campus Housing: Of campus housing is readily available, and there are plenty of options within walking distance, or that have free shuttles to campus. However, you must visit each of these places individually to inquire about availability and rent rates. I have many friends who live off campus, and there is a range in quality depending on how much you can afford.

Weather: Not bad except when we have down pours of rain.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I have no problem with the security this year. Last year I was way to far from my car and had to wait to long for shuttle. My parents would follow me back at nite to give me a ride to dorm after I parked.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It's convenient living on campus, I have more study time instead of travel time to and from home.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: Have to wait to long for pick up. Last year I took me 45 min, sometimes to get picked up and takened to my car.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: I use my own laptop. Haven't used schools computers yet.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There are a lot of mean snobby girls on campus. Many are Greek and think that they are better than everyone else. Same for Greek guys as well. Other girls on campus are very unfriendly, only a few are nice and outgoing.

Athletics: The varsity sports at my school are very good and do well every season. Although, student participation and support is very low considering many students live off campus and go home on weekends and rarely go to games.

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.
