5 College Sophomore

Facilities: The facilities at our school are absolutely fabulous! It is very modern and the thing about most colleges and universities is that many buildings are either old, new, or both. Our school is very uniform and consistent, which makes the campus look nice and neat.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There is a good mixture of people at UNCC. There is a large presence of fraternities and sororities. It is hard to make friend who you can hang out with outside of school because there are many commuters.

Transportation: Parking is way too high. Parkings is about half a grand and most of the time I cannot even find a decent spot. I use to go to UNCG and we had campus busses that took us around campus and I liked that, but UNCC only offers services similar to that at night.

2 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: One thing I do not like about UNCC safety is that in a lot of the elevators, especially in parking garages, you cannot see what floor you are on (the floor display is broken). Overall, crime on campus is not bad. I have not had any issues or ever felt unsafe.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: I enjoy the overall atmosphere of my school. It is a town full of options for things to do. There is nearby malls and shopping areas, plenty of places for dining options, and there is stadiums downtown. There is also a great nightlife for most college students, the clubs seem to be a popular attraction. There are also art museums all around.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There is always fast-food options available all around but not all of them are as healthy or as expensive as normal restaurants. Most clothing stores are the ones who give student discounts, not the dining places. The places I am most familiar with would be McDonalds, Ishi a sushi place, but cook-out would be my recommendation. It is the most affordable and more healthy than others.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: There are more minority students then non-minority students that attend this university. Also I have seen many international students on campus, a few of which I've seen act in a play of campus.

1 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I didn't get hardly any financial aid. Even after accepting everything they offered even the high interest rated bad ones I normally stay away from I still fell short of meeting the total for each semester. I had to take out my own student loan from a private bank. I wasn't offered any grants unlike a different school I went to. Also, the process was confusing, I could hardly ever get anyone on the phone to talk to and the people I did were rude.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: UNCC seems to be very strict. The advisors are rude and hard to talk to. The police are never outside of their cars so it's hard if you need help. Also, they are very strict with deadlines, curriculum and structure. Many of my teachers said they wish they could teach things a different more interesting way but they can't because they have to follow the guidelines.

1 College Sophomore

Majors: There seems to be a huge lack of communication for pre nursing majors. The program needs some serious revamping. ok for right out of HS, but not a good fit for adult students.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: At UNCC there are a huge number of students that are international. They are very friendly and eager to learn about America! There are people from Japan, France, and even Saudi Arabia. It's nice to see and learn about other students and their countries as well!

5 College Freshman

Diversity: There are people of many different races and religions. You see many different people on campus.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The food is decent. Yeah you get tired of the norms but they often times switch up the menu. Crown Commons is the best place to go so far until they build the new dining hall next year. Oh and the cooks are cute!!! <- something to look forward to every meal lol

4 College Freshman

Computers: Computers are EVERYWHERE! Telling your professor the "I couldn't get to a computer" excuse will not work! There are no excuses as to why you wouldn't have access to a computer, library is open 24/7. But printers on the other hand, aren't so reliable.

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: There's always something to do on the weekend. People throw parties even during exam week lol.

3 College Freshman

Parking: Parking is okay but getting to your spot can be crazy with soo many students walking EVERYWHERE! If you live in the freshmen dorms and drive to school, your parking spot is FAR but they're building new ones closer! :)

2 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Not a lot of guy options, sadly. Most of the good looking ones are concided and not worth your time.

4 College Freshman

Campus Dining: There are good places to eat on campus and there are plenty of good options.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: there are a lot of restaurants around campus and easy access to a freeway for the ones that are a bit farther away.

3 College Freshman

Computers: Sometimes they're just out of the way, and often the library just has zero computers available.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: There are a lot of guys, but none that I like much

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Most everyone I know is involved in the athletics or wants to be involved.

3 Recent Alumnus

Majors: I was admitted to UNC-Charlotte fall of 2004 and they had a set schedule of the classes, and the order to take them in. I was under the impression that was it and I would be done in 4 years. Well I struggled in my general biology class, and I really struggled in my inorganic chemistry classes and those were the 4 classes, labs included, to even be admitted into the biology program. You will not be able to speak to an biology advisor if you are not in the program. if you are a pre-biology student, you will have to speak to a science advisor and once admitted, you will be assigned to a biology advisor.

3 Recent Alumnus

Majors: I was in the biology program and it was intense. Especially Human Physiology, Microbiology, Immunology, all the upper level courses were intense and a lot of information to process in one semester. The lower level biology courses along with the chemistries, are broad, but they expect you to learn alot because you need those classes to actually be admitted into the biology program and you must have a C or better.

Majors: As a Biology major and having two part-time jobs through out college, it was extremely stressful. I wasn't blessed to have money growing out of trees. The only thing I would change is, if I didnt have to work as much, I would of been more focused on my courses and not trying to do everything all at once. They give you a set schedule for you to complete in 4 years, but I would just take what you can, and not to rush. You can't finish college in four years, unless you are financially stable and you have the means to be all in. I'm not saying it can not be accomplished, just you will have to be strict. I would choose this school and major all over again. Word of advice, they never tell you what will happen if you didn't get accepted into a speciality program i.e. medical school, dental school, medical technology. They give you the impression, if you take these classes, and maintain above a "C" average, then you get in. They do not stress to you that there are other people competing to get accepted and that the school is very limited in how many can be accepted. Just be prepared to be opened to other programs in other locations.
