3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in one of the highrises, which is the cheapest option. You have to time your showers right or you will get a cold one! There is always something going on here.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Very clean campus. Numerous authority figures are always present.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are plenty of off campus complexes that are available. I have not lived off campus yet, but I plan on doing so in the future.

4 College Freshman

Weather: It is hot outside when the suns out, but when its not it feels pretty good. It rains quite often.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Its a great place to be an a place full of opportunity being right in the middle of the city.

5 College Freshman

Nightlife: There is events going on everywhere around campus, and that's not even including the bars, clubs, and parties off campus. Its the best in North Carolina I'm sure.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: Life here is so convenient. There are so many spots on campus to relax and study, or even hangout with your friends. Also, the student activity center and student union have a ton of fun things fro you to do and great ways to keep you active. Classroom settings are for the most part great and provide a good learning experience. Also, there are a ton of organizations to join and so many helpful people!

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I'm sure there is peer pressure, alcohol, drugs, and all that other stuff at UNCC, it's college. However, it's not that present and people are cool if you choose not to do what they're doing. Also, policy enforcement is very strict here, which makes the campus better.

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: Everything at UNCC is free! All athletic events, tutoring, writing help,social events, movies! It's pretty awesome!

5 College Sophomore

Majors: As an electrical engineering major, I am very satisfied with the environment provided at UNC Charlotte. The professors are great; from knowledge base to teaching style. Unlike other big colleges, at UNC Charlotte, you get the excellent education of a big university while also receiving the attention and concern from professors not seen anywhere else.

5 College Freshman

Majors: I love the history department at UNCC. The advisers are extremely helpful and are more than willing to meet with you multiple times per semester to answer any questions you have and provide guidance. The classes are extremely interesting and the professors do a great job of teaching. If I could do it all over again, I would declare history as my major at UNCC without a second thought. I feel very welcomed and cared for in the history program at my university.

3 College Freshman

Majors: There is no special application process for the history program at UNCC. Upon declaring history as your major, you are expected to have a basic knowledge of essay writing and research skills. You should be able to read textbooks efficiently and you must have good study skills.

3 College Freshman

Majors: The history program at UNCC is a great program to be a part of. All the teachers are extremely helpful and will do almost anything to ensure that their history majors have the best experience possible while at UNCC. The teachers are very well versed in their areas of study and know how to make learning a fun activity.

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Charlotte is a great city. There is shopping, restaurants, grocery store and everything you need basically across the street from campus. You don't have to go far to have a change of scenery and Charlotte has alot to offer! There is always something happening in town if you need to get off campus for a change of scenery. It is not one of those schools that is isolated.

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: There are alot of interesting things to do. Charlotte Panthers football, Carowinds, Charlotte Motor Speedway, and several large malls

4 College Freshman

Academics: I am in the Lee College of Engineering, and their program from what I have seen is top notch. The professors are all very knowledgeable, and keep the classes interesting and fun.

2 College Freshman

Transportation: Plenty of parking for commuters or if you have your own car on campus, but the campus bus system needs to be improved.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There is a great variety of food choices within 5 miles of campus, especially if you head over to the Boardwalk area.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The party scene here at UNCC is a good level, because you can have fun while not being distracted too much from your school work.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: One of the reasons I fell in love with University of North Carolina at Charlotte was due to the wide rang of diversity. I am glad to attend a school with diversity. It not only prepares you for the real world but gives you the opportunity to learn about new things. You have people in your class ranging from white to Asian, Christianity to Muslim.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is that one of the best choices i have made at school. Greeks are so active in the community and around campus from supporting blood drives to raising awareness for there philanthropy. It’s not frowned upon if you are or aren’t in Greek life. Yes we do have parties but it’s nothing like in the movies. Greek life at UNC Charlotte is more of helping the community.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: At UNCC, it appears that much attention is paid to showcasing the differences and diversity of its student (and faculty) population, and that's a good thing. There appears to be clubs, organizations and/or interest groups that cater to so many categories, to the point there should be only a relative few students that cannot find a group they can relate to on campus. There are certain groups that I find to have little spirit for tolerance of the differences in others, but I have not experienced any overt problems with it.

Local Atmosphere: To attend school at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte is to attend a beautiful campus on a section of the city that you sometimes have to be reminded that it's an urban environment. The University City area is a bustling, thriving area with ample shopping, restaurants and nightlife, though the campus has plenty of activities itself. There are neighboring schools in and around UNCC, including Queens University, Johnson C. Smith, Belmont Abbey, Pfeiffer, and Livingstone, among others, and we all seem to get along pretty well, though our school is much bigger than the others. Uptown Charlotte (the downtown area in most other cities) is diverse, vibrant and exciting, especially on the weekends, and major musical acts and other performances (theater, comedians, etc) come through the city often. The arts community is the best such scene in the state, and people from elsewhere flock to the city to partake in the scene. Meanwhile, back on campus, the state-of-the-art study and educational facilities make it easy to focus on studies when necessary, allowing us to save the distractions for our free time.

Drug Safety: The drug scene at UNC Charlotte is not a big problem, and most you see people doing is smoking. It really depends on who you are hanging out with on campus, and who you know, but other than that, it's mainly smoking. Peer pressure doesn't seem, and parties with drugs and alcohol aren't to frequent, and if they are, are very low key. The drinking and smoking are the biggest problems, but there are policies that keep smoking in designated areas, and prevent any alcohol in dormitories, and on most campus grounds. Drug safety is very important to UNC Charlotte's policies, and they are very strict about it.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life at UNC Charlotte is very prominent in most students' college lives - the greek sororities and fraternities do a lot of community service for their philanthropy, and always try to get the students on campus involved and to feel like they are a part of the Greek life while not being officially a greek member. They are energetic, and good people, and most of the sororities and fraternities on campus do not have bad reputations. They bring the campus alive, and are very important to UNC Charlotte's community.
