3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Coming from a small town in Fayetteville, NC to a city like Charlotte I did expect things to change. I am used to the southern hospitality where everyone is polite and did things fairly. Here I guess the intermingle of different cultures and different hometowns led to different perspectives on how to treat other people. Some people are nice, some want what they want and don't care what you think, and some are just average.

Weather: The weather doesn't really have any impact on university changes. As far as effects campus living, it can be awful or nice. If it is a nice day, then the half mile walk to class through the woods can be pretty. If it is freezing or raining, that is very bad as dorms are located so far away from any classes on campus and go through the woods. Residents can't park anywhere on campus until after 6 pm so we are forced to walk if we live on campus.

Local Atmosphere: There are many things to do it Charlotte as shopping, NFL games, MBA games, and more. Nightlife in the city is like any other city I presume as I have personally not experienced it yet. There are a lot of people, everything is crowded, and parking on campus and around the city is awful.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I may be slightly biased because i'm in the newest addition to housing on campus, Hunt Hall, but I totally love my suite. It's the perfect size for me, and my roommates are awesome people. It's definitely a social environment, but there are more than enough ways to get personal space if needed.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: There is tons to do on campus. There are like, over 300 different clubs and organisations that you can join, and people definitely reach out to the students to help them get involved with their school.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: Personally, I love how the campus is all pretty close together. Besides some of the newer engineering buildings, there isn't a single class you can't walk to in 15 minutes, which is the break between class times. I absolutely love my school. The campus is constantly being taken care of, and is very pleasing to look at.

4 College Freshman

Computers: The library definitely has a ton of computers to use if needed by students. The computers by the printers are usually pretty crowded but if you take the time to go to a computer area that isn't right when you walk in the library there are plenty of options. I do have my own computer though and that has served me very well in my classes.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The school dining itself is pretty average, although with the new dining hall that's under construction the dining should definitely improve. The chain restaurants on campus are very good, although a few of them close pretty early in the afternoon which sucks.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: I've been in a really serious long term relationship with my boyfriend since before I started school at uncc, but from what I've noticed, the guys here are very attractive. Even if you're not looking for guys to date, I'd say that most of the guys i've met on campus have been really nice and respectful people.

College Freshman

Nightlife: I'm honestly really not into the bar and club and party scene, so i'm not really sure what it's all like. UNCC is definitely not a party school though.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: UNCC is about 15-20 minutes away from Charlotte proper, and along with the tons of dining options that are in the immediate areas around the campus, there are countless options once you go towards the city. UNCC is also about 10-15 minutes from Concord Mills which also has an incredible variety of places to dine.

3 College Freshman

Parking: Permits are for sure on the expensive side of the scale, but there are tons of options for parking on campus and there is a bus system set up that is free and takes students from various parking lots to different academic buildings, resident halls, and sports/recreational areas. Commuters would want a car, but once on campus you can walk pretty much anywhere and when the walk is a bit far, there's guaranteed to be a bus that will take you where you need to go.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are literally tons of options for off campus housing. There are certainly options that cost more than others, but there are definitely places that offer housing for really reasonable prices. Honestly, there are places for every price range available.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I found it is cheeper to live off campus and the prices offered are very reasonable. They come fully furnished and close proximity to campus so it feels worth it to invest in off campus housing.

Overall Experience: I would not choose a different school If given the opportunity. I love UNCC because of all the fun activities that allow you to get involved and the friendly staff. Teachers and lunch ladies for example are wonderful and friendly everyday. The constant activities and sports make me feel involved and a part of my school. At the beginning of the semester they have a week of welcome which made me feel welcome and helped my transition feel more at ease.

Computers: There are only two places to print, and the machine constantly breaks.

Athletics: Everyone gets involved and shows team spirit for the football and track Team.

Scholarships: I am starting school at Uncc next semester, anda it is a everyday struggle finding enough financial aid to cover all my school expenses.

2 College Sophomore

Parking: There isn't much of a need for a car on campus unless you want an off-campus job. There definitely needs to be more parking lots for the amount of housing facilities we have. Ticketing fines are very expensive and they are very struck on giving parking tickets.
