4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Overall housing is pretty good. 2-3 new dorms opened this semester and another is opening next fall. Pricing depends on where you live but you do have the option of on/off campus apartments that vary in pricing.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: UNC Charlotte has many Greek organizations for the students to get involved in, from honorary societies to fraternities and sororities. I have seen them sponsor events around campus but they pretty much stay to themselves. Greek village is really nice but its also really expensive to live in as well.

2 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking sucks! the permits are expensive and the spots fill up quickly. I would buy a commuter pass, even if I was living on campus, because they get all the parking.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The school is located about 20 minutes outside of downtown Charlotte. There are a good number of cheap restaurants around campus for those who are on a budget. There is a bus that comes on campus that takes the students to Walmart and downtown Charlotte so the students without cars do have access to other parts of the city. The campus its self is really beautiful. There are lots of trails and wooded areas for people to explore. Overall I feel pretty safe on campus and there is a lot to do on campus, from the sports, recreational and competitive, as well as clubs that are open to all the students.

3 College Student

Nightlife: Nightlife is okay. You have to be responsible and safe.

3 College Student

Computers: In some buildings the wireless connection sucks. I find it very necessary to have your own personal computer and printer.

3 College Student

Overall Experience: The school is great. If I could do it all over again, I would probably go to a different college, or wait to go to college because of financial reasons.

College Student

Greek Life: I'm not interested in greek life.

3 College Student

Weather: The weather is generally not bad. Sometimes the challenge comes from the academic buildings. When it is hot outside, the building is hot instead of cool, and vice versa.

3 College Student

Diversity: There is a lot of diversity on this campus. Coming from a small town, it is very nice to meet people with views/backgrounds/cultures that are different from mine.

3 College Student

Health & Safety: Overall, I feel somewhat safe walking alone when it gets dark.

3 College Student

Local Atmosphere: Charlotte is a big city, and there is often something going on during the week and on weekends. I could see myself moving here after graduating, if I could find a decent job.

3 College Student

Majors: I'm not that involved in my program. However, I will be in the future.

College Student

Majors: I have not done an internship while in college so I cannot rate.

College Student

Transportation: I have not used the transportation services offered at my school.

4 College Student

Academics: I am an criminal justice major. I have just been accepted into the major, and I feel as though I cannot judge the workload yet.

3 College Student

Academics: I have picked decent professors. There are those that have accents or their teaching methods may be hard to follow. If you're in that situation, don't be afraid to email or meet your professor at their office hours. The registration process can be headache at times. The classes you may need, will fill up quickly; or the professor you want may not be available. Then you are left with horrible class meetings, times, and even a difficult professor. The registration process is first come, first serve. My tip for the registration process is: to not wait too late do sign up for classes and if the class you want is full, keep checking it from time to time for an open slot. The study options on campus are great. If you need help with a class, set up a meeting with a tutor or set up a study group with the people in your class.

3 College Student

Campus Strictness: I think my school is fairly strict. You get caught doing something that goes against the rules, you will be punished.

3 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: I have not lived off-campus. However, through multiple friends that do live off-campus, I would say it is an okay experience. You have a little bit more freedom to do what you want. One of the challenges they constantly faced when living off-campus, would be commuting to school and not being able to find a park.

3 College Student

Scholarships: The actual filling out the aid and receiving your aid is simple and quick. It depends on the individual and their needs. With my situation, my father loss his job, and we filled out a parent reconsideration to receive more aid. In the beginning, my parents and I did not know we could do that. My tip for anyone would be: if you have any questions, do not hesitate to call the Finanical Aid Office or contact them through their website. Throughout the years, I have done both and they have somewhat help clarify the problem and guide me to a solution.

3 College Student

Guys & Girls: You have friendly people and you have non-friendly people.

3 College Student

Campus Housing: The housing process is very simple and somewhat quick. I wish there were more events/attractions for those who live on campus. I would rather live on campus than commute because of the parking.

3 College Senior

Academics: It's a pretty easygoing school. We have a very competitive engineering and architecture program, but other than that the course load is very bearable and the teachers are acceptable.

5 College Senior

Academics: I loved obtaining my psychology degree at UNCC. The students were awesome and overall they have good teaching staff.

Off-Campus Housing: I lived off campus for my entire college career. I had no trouble finding an apartment any year, and I changed after each school year. There is tons of all-inclusive options that are close to campus, and there are options for regular apartments too if you are looking for a place with less college students.
