5 College Senior

Academics: The oppurtunities at UNCC are amazing. There is just so many programs available for students. I'm currently interning this summer. There are so many programs but you have to look. You can not expect these opportunties to fall into your lap. You must be a dedicated student, work hard at mataining grades and attending classes. Basically be responsible. As far as the work load, your counselor will not give you more than you can handle. Your counselor is a member of the the department you are majoring and they know the workload of all the courses. The facilities have excellent materials. Professors are willing to be there if you need them for the most part. I give this an A+++.

Parking: The parking is super expensive. I myself will be purchasing a yearly pass and it costs 600 dollars! The campus is so large and there are only a couple parking decks. I don't mind the walk though. Sometimes its hard to find an empty space but that rarely ever happens. I'm more concerned with trying to find a way to cut costs. After all, I am a struggling college student.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: I feel that the college is overall safe. There are always teachers or authority walking around. The only thing that concerns me is there are these walkways and paths were there are no emerency lights. I'm afraid that one day I might get mugged or something else. I usually do not feel unsafe for the most part. There is a ton of campus security and I'm sure that nothing bad would ever happen to me. I generally concerned for something that might happen not just myself but other people. I hate to see anyone in danger.

Drug Safety: Drugs and alcohol are not a noticeable part of campus life. People do drink and smoke and all but there isn"t any pressure

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Sororities and Fraternities at UNCC are very active on campus. They take part in a lot of activities and organize stuff too. Most of them are highly respected

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Charlotte is definitely a place to be if you want to get into fun nightlife and meeting new people in the area. Charlotte is a melting pot and is culturally diverse. It is a place for the young, wild and free.

4 College Junior

Academics: Their academics are a bit challenging so I would recommend tutoring if possible. By any means necessary, get the help you need to keep your grades looking good and your GPA strong.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: The financial aid I received was sufficient for the first couple of month's rent but when I lived on-campus it did not cover any expenses.

1 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking on UNCC is ridiculous, trying to find a parking space is insane. You have to pay alot for a parking pass just to be told that their are limited parking, or you have to walk a good distance.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms at UNCC are pretty nice. I would recommend to anyone.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The greek housing and sorority makes the fun of UNCC.

5 College Sophomore

Transportation: Public transportation is really good at this university. The bus times run all of the time, and if you need assistance it will be there in a fast and a hurry.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Being from the Noth I like the weather here. It never really gets cold enough for a coat--lots of hoody weather especially for the rain

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: there are multiple places to eat on campus a s well as the dining halls. It really depends on your class schedule how often you will be going to the hall

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: I for one have acquaintances from all backgrounds and you can see from walking around the campus that they are a lot of all kinds here on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: So far the Computer program is challenging. I have a way to go but it is very interesting

3 College Sophomore

Academics: Some of the professors are hard for me to understand but they are very approachable.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Everyone seems pretty normal around here. Typical girls and guys but sometimes you might find the ones who may be extremely attractive and belong in modeling catalogs or you may find some who belong in Anime comic books. You really just have to really look around. For the most part I would say we have the most diverse campus around North Carolina. The country boys, the city slickers, the Northerners, and of course tons of people from outside the United States. I truly believe anyone can find their perfect group of friends. That is one of the reasons I love this school, because you're not going to find everyone exactly alike.

Greek Life: Greek life is irrelevant to me. Simply because I don't want to spend loads of money on something I don't see you getting much out of. Greeks have parties and sometimes they are all anyone talks about, if it's a good Greek party. Sometimes though they are very snobby and will not let anyone in unless you are Greek. They see themselves as better than anyone else on campus and will try to only associate with one another. There are Greek housing available and they have their own Greek village, so they yet again get to separate themselves from everyone that are not involved in what they believe in.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: I use my laptop most of the time when I go to school for homework and such, but if you go to the library and try to use their wireless internet sometimes it doesn't exactly want to work out for you, especially during finals and mid-terms. You will lose connection, guaranteed, every 20 minutes. When it comes to having to take a test online, you should definitely use a school's computer, especially if you have a professor that only allows you to take it one, even if you have technical issues. If your test fails while you're taking it on your own personal computer they will most likely tell you they can't do anything, but if it is the University's computer then they will blame it on the school and probably allow you to take it again. This is all what I have experienced. All I know is you definitely want your own computer, because it makes your college experience so much easier.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: There is so much to do around here! There is a transportation bus that takes you downtown to all the coolest clubs. There are a good amount of parties, you just have to know people. Sometimes there will be no parties at all going on, but if you are over 21, bars and clubs are one of the most popular activities to do at night such as Bad dogs or Phoenix. Depending on the apartments complex you are going to party at though, you should be wary. If you are trying to go to a party at U-terrace, there will be some people you might want to watch out for, but apartments like Uwalk, or The Edge seem to have pretty decent parties.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Financial aid is confusing overall during the process of applying and accepting.

4 College Junior

Campus Dining: There are quite a few great places around campus for dining, although only a handful of them are open past 6pm.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: I have good experience with most of my professors here. They are willing to help if you show them you're working hard. The registration process is frustrating, but not only at this school. You have to be very patient in order to get into the class you like. Form study groups would help a lot to prepare for exams.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I love our chemistry department. You'll find many great opportunities once you get in and work your butt off.
