3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There have been a few incidents in the past on campus, but none that had any effect on me

5 College Sophomore

Academics: I am very satisfied with my education as an exercise science major so far. My program is built to prepare me for grad school, as I want to become a physician's assistant after grad school. My program requires most of the pre requisites I need for grad school. My professors also are very involved with us, and are willing to help us find internships and connections that will help us in the future in our field.

Campus Housing: Housing at UNCC is amazing. As a freshman I had a single room and shared a suite with 3 other girls. As a sophomore, I had a single room again, and shared my suite with one other girl. The dorms have plenty of space as long as you fill out your housing application early. They are also affordable for the value you are getting

Nightlife: Nightlife at UNCC exists, but you really have to go out and look for it. Down town is mainly for people 21 and up although there are a few clubs that allow 18+. There are parties in campus apartments, which are nice, but that is about it. If you aren't in to house parties and kick backs, then you will be at the same 2-3 clubs every weekend. This is not an issue for me because I am not a big party goer and I normally don't go out much more than once or twice a month.

Academics: I cane to UNCC because they had my major which is Exercise Science. I am a sophomore now and I am finally getting into my major classes, which is exciting. I love my professors, and they provide so many resources such as office hours, or meetings. They seem to really have my best interest at heart. All of my professors at UNCC are very reasonable, and if you put in the effort, you will be successful, or they will do everything they can to make you successful as you move forward in the class.

Parking: THEY WILL GET YOU! Constant parking lot monitoring and hefty fine rates ensure that campus parking is on a need-to-park basis. $410 was the most recent commuter/resident parking services tag fee for cars to park on campus. Cluttered parking lots, crowded rows, and tolled parking decks are a nightmare to some. Even worse is the meter maids that intentionally seek out ticketing regarding even the smallest of miscues involving a parking space.

Off-Campus Housing: I won't be moving off campus until Fall 2013, but all of my friends have been off-campus since Fall 2012. All in all, there are certain housing assignments with which to avoid and those that come highly recommended. Most of the better ones are all-inclusive and even within appropriate walking distance of class. There is even one that isn't within walking distance, but is along one of the routes of the free campus shuttles that go through the campus. All-in-all, off-campus housing is pretty legitimate.

Diversity: Call me racist, though i am not, but in regards to trying to teach me particular engineering techniques and practices, i will most certainly choose to learn from a native English speaker. Also, when trying to ride the campus-provided shuttle across campus, bring a mask or deodorizer because even if the weather is cold outside, there will always be an undeniable stench from some students. The lack of hygiene is appalling.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: Depending on which type of transportation you plan to take, make sure to plan accordingly. When taking a car, be sure to not get caught in the long traffic lines at the poorly-executed traffic lights between key hours of "on-campus rush hour" traffic. When taking the bus, always expect some sort of delay, regardless if you're on time to the bus stop or ten minutes early. The early morning timings, however, are spot on.

5 College Freshman

Majors: I've meet so many new friends within the program. Everyone is nice and the professors are very open and friendly. You need to work hard, but it's worth it.

Athletics: Getting a football team Fall 2013! It will bring up the school spirit. Athletics here aren't the best but, they aren't the worst either. Just as fun as any other school. GO NINERS!

4 College Freshman

Weather: The weather is crazy! It cab be nice spring weather one day and freezing cold the next. It was 63 one day and then it snowed the following day.

5 College Sophomore

Weather: North Carolina is very bipolar. Do bring an umbrella.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Charlotte is home to the Bobcats and Panthers where the city of Charlotte is about 20 minutes away from the University. There are a majority of attractions here that you can go to such as the Mint Museum, Discovery Place, Franklis Park, Carowinds, and many more. You would love it here!

Drug Safety: I hear people talk about parties and drug use but as far as seeing usage take place is very slim.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Its a fairly easy process if you qualify for it. All you have to do is file a FAFSA form. but depending on your parents income you may not qualify. but you can file for a subsidized loan that is very helpful

College Freshman

Campus Housing: i currently do not live on campus so i am not a good candidate for this question.. sorry

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: I have not really experienced anything thats strict...

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: It was a long process! I had to redo my financial aid about three times because my figures were off

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Everyone here pretty much do not like getting dressed. Everyone wears either sweat pants, basketball shorts, yoga pants, leggings, and hoodies.
