3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There is a low cost and dining options are very diverse in what you can eat

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: UNCC is in the process of having a football team. There seems to be a lot more school spirit because of that.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are not a lot of places to eat off-campus that will give you a student discount. Since UNC Charlotte is a commuter school, there are not a lot of restaurants in the area anyway.

3 Recent Alumnus

Majors: The psychology department at UNC Charlotte is engaging and supportive. Each month they have a department wide open networking event keeping which is very successful. I was extremly satisfied with the education provided from their diverse group of professors.

4 College Senior

Diversity: There is a lot of diversity in the university from what I can tell. There are some Muslim women who have to cover themselves in traditional garments, some boys openly cross-dress as women, and there is always a mix of students in each classroom. However, it's common to see wide diversity in the first couple of years of college, up to the end of the sophomore year and the 2000 level classes. Once junior and senior years get going, I've noticed much less diversity in the classroom because there are fewer minorities finishing their degrees. For example, my senior seminar had 15 white students and 2 black students. But regardless of who or what people are, there is a wide range of acceptance and friendliness from peers that make UNC Charlotte a great place to go to school.

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: When a professor writes a syllabus, they really stick to all the rules of conduct, especially when it comes to late work, absences, etc. I had one professor give a classmate a zero on a weekly assignment because she had to write between 100-200 words, and only wrote 99. Ridiculous. Yet they always lecture too long so that the assigned work is never on track with the calendar. It's frustrating to have to rush through the last couple of weeks of class and prepare for finals when they don't spend enough time on the material. If you want to do well, you just have to show up.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I've been in four majors since I started here (I know that's a lot!) and the professors and advisors have all been really helpful. I started as a business major and now I'm in criminal justice and my minor is gerontology. There are a ton of resources to help students that are graduating and help look for jobs and tweak resumes. There are many pamphlets and books that can help you find a job good for you and that fits your major. There is a career center and there are career aptitude tests for those who are unsure about their majors.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: There are plenty of computer labs here, and there is almost always one free. The library has a ton of computers and printers so it's easy to find one and to print things. I've never had a problem finding a printer on campus. There is WiFi in almost every building so you can bring your own computer as well and then you don't have to worry about weather the labs are crowded, but it's not necessary to have a laptop since you can rent one in the library or in the Student Union.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I'm happy with the education I've received here so far. My professors have all been very knowledgeable about their subjects and very passionate about them. Their passion definitely helps me to be more interested in the subjects and to learn more. It's easy to get to know your professors here especially in the smaller classes and I've enjoyed almost every single professor I've had. It's nice to be able to know them on a personal level and it helps with the future if you need letters of recommendation or a job recommendation.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: The weather in Charlotte is typically beautiful. It rains a bit, but never for too long and the sun shines most days. It doesn't snow here much, so there's no need to worry about getting snowed in or the ice being a problem. The campus is beautiful in the springtime so it's nice to walk around. People are always laying in the grass and around campus when the weather is nice.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The freshman dorms aren't the greatest, but they offer plenty of opportunities to meet people and to make some amazing new friends. The upperclassmen dorms are definitely better and they offer suite and apartment style so there is more space than in the freshman dorms. They're all relatively close to campus so walking to class isn't a problem and you have time to get there.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I came to University of North Carolina at Charlotte for the Business honors program, which is a great program. I wound up not staying in it, but I know many people that have succeeded in it and found great jobs with it. My professors have all been great for the most part and are extremely helpful and readily available whenever you need to talk to them. The campus is amazing and beautiful during the springtime.

4 College Junior

Majors: I am very happy with the Communications and Public Health programs. The university does a good job with its advising for classes as well as employing very helpful staff.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: The diversity is great on campus. There are very many different religions and cultures. Some are to their selves some what. The Black Student Union is a group only for African American students and they are like a clique. I feel like everyone has their own clique here.

2 College Freshman

Nightlife: I'm not a clubber at all. The house parties always get shut down

1 College Freshman

Parking: The prices of parking permits are ridiculous!!!! UNCC is by far the strictest school when it comes to parking. They will give you a ticket for anything even if you have a permit. The prices are like $425 for the entire year, outrageous just to park and there aren't even many places to park close to the residence halls.

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: I never really see or hear about any of the Greeks engaging in anything helpful throughout the community, I hear about their parties though!

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I am excited about being in the counseling program because of the values that the program promotes. I enjoy the flexibility of being a part-time or full-time student. I also highly benefit from the certificates that the counseling program offers, such as a certificate in play therapy and/or substance abuse. Many counseling programs do not provide these opportunities; I believe these aspects make the counseling program at UNCC stand out.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I am very happy with my program. My professors are highly trained, reliable, and experts in their field. My degree fits well with my career goals of being a counselor. I am confident that I will find a job in my field upon graduation due to the skills I have and will acquire and the excellent reputation of my program.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: The most important criteria for admission is being a well-rounded student who is open to multicultural groups. Our programs highly value students who care about their community.

The application process was not difficult as long as you apply on time.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: An internship for my program is not paid and requires the student to work 20 hours per week. I plan to have one next year and don't have any concerns finding one. I have 1 year and a half of experience working as a graduate assistant.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Charlotte is a great city with something for any interest. There are tons of local attractions, from museums and restaurants to bigger attractions like the National Whitewater Center and Carowinds. There are a few other universities in the city, and the young population is definitely embraced by the city. The only drawback is that the best things to do in Charlotte require a little driving, since they are not in the immediate vicinity of UNCC.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Police and faculty are seen often around campus, and are accessible if needed. There are blue lights that contact police if you feel threatened or are in need of assistance. The dorms are college ID accessed, so, in other words, your college ID only lets you into the dorm building if you live there, and also the dorm rooms are key or pass-card accessible. Living security is high, because they make sure people are not playing any drinking games, and the residents in the dorms are safe and protected. Plus, there's always a night officer in the dorms that walks around the building to make sure everyone is safe. The faculty in charge of security takes safety very seriously. I have never felt unsafe on campus, coming from someone who lives on campus, and the only places on campus I've heard about that can be unsafe are the outskirts of the university by the parking lots and garages. Other than that, I would say UNCC is relatively a safe campus.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There's a lot of restaurants, but they're very expensive so I tend to stick to the Southern chains like Cookout and Salsarita's since I can't get them back home in New York.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There's a lot of activity, but it's well hidden that most people don't get caught.
