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.

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.

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.

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.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: UNC Charlotte has a very relaxed atmosphere. Its about a 15 minute drive to down town Charlotte so there is always something to do.

Off-Campus Dining: Within 10-15 minutes of campus anyone is able to find something suited to their tastes. Buffets and chain restaurants, local eateries and specialty shops, outdoor dining with plenty of nearby activity are all around university area. Best thing is $20 should cover about anything for a person. If that is out of your budget, $5 gets you cookout which is better than the chain fast foods

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Plenty of bars, clubs, places to eat, shop, pretty much do whatever you want. All are within a 15 minute drive, mostly being within 5 minutes of campus.

4 College Freshman

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel pretty safe, I have never seen any problems on campus.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Right now we are in winter so it is cold. Normally it is above average from home. One of my Engineering classes is a 30 minute, so in the winter that is pretty far. I never know when the shuttle is coming, or which one is going to get me to my classes.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: If you look around near the campus area you'll find decent places for a fair price.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: There is going to be crime or anything like that anywhere you go but UNCC makes sure to inform their students of any incidents and report promptly when a problem arises. I feel safe on campus and students themselves need to take the precautions that the university suggests and that will ensure a higher safety.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I have visited all of the places I mentioned and many more and most offer student discounts and the service is always good. The cost is reasonable and the atmosphere is great for any age of people.

College Junior

Campus Housing: I can not speak from personal experience because I have not lived on campus but I have stayed with friends in the dorms and they were very nice and if I ever was able to afford on campus living I would definitely enjoy it. The best living is in my opinion in greek village and the houses are well taken care of and I enjoy staying in the them when possible.

4 College Freshman

Weather: The weather is very bearable at UNCC. It is never really too colder too hot and it doesn't rain a lot.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: There are only a few restaurants on campus and some of them aren't open on weekends. The dining halls are okay but they could be a lot better.

3 College Freshman

Academics: The professors that I have had a UNCC have been great but the classes are easy so far.

4 College Freshman

Computers: The Engineering and CCI computers are pretty sophisticated, with enough software to accomplish any school-related tasks.

The library and general student network computers including those in the lecture podiums have recently been upgraded.

Wifi has also been improved. I only access it using my phone, but since a few months ago Wifi is a lot more accessible without the random dropped connections that used to plague it in the past.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Plenty of clubs uptown and parties everywhere. Great night life!
