4 College Junior

Majors: Lee College Mechanical Engineering Curriculum – To gain entry into the Lee College of Engineering, a student has to pass the general education classes of the university, in addition to specially designated sections of chemistry, math, and physics classes to determine competency. I initially tested into pre-Calculus but was able to pass the pre-requisite courses Chem I, Physics I and II and pass Calc level I and II which are required.

Majors: Lee College Mechanical Engineering Curriculum – I have attended Charlotte for two years now, and have had no issues with the competency of the professors in the Lee College or their teaching methods and passion towards educating. My only faults in the first two years would be the lack of availability of certain classes in the program due to a shortage of teachers, and that an increase in supplemental instruction sessions for later level courses would be invaluable. I would like to envision a career for myself in the engineering field where I am able to see my work make an impact in the real world. I have given some thought to working in Aerospace, possibly commercializing travel around orbit, working for a company interested in pioneering new frontiers. I believe that my natural aptitudes for design and creative idea generating would be useful in such a career, as well as other options including power generation and sustainable energy. My only concerns regarding finding a job in the field post graduation are firstly, graduating and having the diploma as credentials, and then landing an interview with the company that is the best fit for me. As an engineer, I would be prepared to solve most of the other problems as they present themselves.

Campus Strictness: Remember the Golden Rule – The campus is a secure campus and as long as you are respectful of campus policies you should be fine. The only thing I would suggest is that you use the computer labs responsibly and not do anything that would be a distraction to your peers.

Greek Life: At UNCC greek life is a mjor part to some. As for me....I have some friends that are in Sororities but I prefer to stay away from most of them. One big issue is the factor of how girls are veiwed if they talk to other girls that are outside of there sorority. I once dated a guy that was in KAppa Alpha so being with him meant that I would meet many greek students....all the sororites wanted me to rush...but I always declined the offer. Once we broke up the girls stopped speaking to me but all of his fraternity brothers still constantly associate with me. I have many of my best guy friends who are in fraternities.

Guys & Girls: Every Different Flavor – You will find once you step in the campus that there is an above average ratio of girls and guys at UNC Charlotte. Th vast diversity that walks the campus grounds allows everyone to find something that they like. Being located in a large city also a wide screen of fashion, so you will never have a problem with not having something to wear. This is my second year and I have noticed that there were several good looks that came with the new freshman class. Also with having an amazing uptown scene anyone who attends UNCC will not have a problem with meeting new people.

Academics: Always Willing to Help – The universities has endless resources to help you succeed in your academics and your life after college. Not only does the resources apply to first time college students like incoming freshmen, but they also have them for transition students, post bachelor students, and first generation college students. The university dedicates whole departments to the success of their students such as the University Center for Academic Excellence. This department offers free workshops on popular and much needed topics like time management, and personal organization. The department also offers free tutoring varying by type, such as one-on-one, group tutoring, or supplemental instruction. The professors also make sure to understand their students and they are willing to work with them during office hours to give them a better understanding if needed. Overall, the university has done and continues to do a great job in offering the right resources for their students to succeed.

Diversity: The diversity on the campus is vast. Although, there are quite a few of whites, I would say half the student body is. Majority of the teachers I had in my general education courses were diverse as well. Between the students and the teachers, UNC-Charlotte is a diverse atmosphere. The religion aspect, probably not as much. There is one Christian speaker who raids our campus, giving speeches and I have not seen many other religious groups. As for economic backgrounds, there is a diverse amount. From students struggling with loans and financial aid, to ones who do not have worry about a thing.

Off-Campus Dining: Same Ol', Same Ol' – The dining options are typical places to eat. There is a lot of fast foods places and your typical chain restaurants, if you wanted a sit down dinner. Sprinkled about are unique places that offer ethnic cuisine, but these are more abundant in Down Town Charlotte, which is a drive.

2 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Needs More Diversity – Diversity in the sense that everything dresses the same.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Much to Do – There is a lot to do in Charlotte. It's all about means of getting there where you find error. UNCC is so self-sufficient which can be good but also be a negative.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Where Should I Live? UNC-Charlotte provides several options for students who are seeking to find housing off-campus at a reasonable price. They are located anywhere from 5 to 10 mins from the campus. UNC-Charlotte provides shuttle service for there students who choose to live off campus.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: So Many Options – Living in Charlotte is an amazing experience. Its beauty tends to capture many of it visitors. Along with its amazing scenery, there is a great amount of activities to choose from. From shopping to dining out, Charlotte is the best place you could choose to live. The are a vast number of restaurants and bars to choose from and their food is amazing. The nightlife is also cool. Whether you're a college student or a married couple looking for a fun night of dancing, Charlotte is the place to be.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: How to Make Commuting Easier – The weather at UNC Charlotte is fairly decent. Although there are times throughout the year where there is frequent heavy rainfall, UNC Charlotte makes it easier to commute through campus. There are several accessible sheltered shuttle stops locate strategically on campus that arrive every 15-20 minutes.

5 College Junior

Computers: I am yet to see a full library without any available computers. As far as wifi, every building on campus sends signal. So if you have a personal computer thats great but not completely needed.

3 College Junior

Athletics: On the Way up – Charlotte is a growing school and sports are following the trend. Basketball and soccer are currently our main sports but footballs on its way and is going to be huge! Go 49ers!

Majors: Can Be Great – I have enjoyed to process. The professors I have had were great, knowledgeable and wanted the students to enjoy learning. It is up to the student to know there strengths and weaknesses and to take classes accordingly. Facilities (ie computer labs) range from fair to good so having your own computer and software can be critical. Internships are advertised within the department and well known companies as well as government agencies 'shop' for interns and employees.

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: Can Be Quite Aggressive – Academic is fairly cut and dried. The student has a period of time to contest a grade and then that is it. Plagiarism is any form is a huge deal...especially in the computer science department. It can get you tossed out of school. The grading policy is an outline within which the professors do have some latitude.
Socially...the campus police are relatively fair BUT they have no tolerance for driving drunk OR driving poorly on campus. Follow the rules and you will be fine.

3 College Senior

Academics: The Great Ones Make up for the Indifferent – It pays to talk to other students about the professors! There are some great ones here. They love their subject, stay current and most importantly can teach. Then there are those (more than you would believe) whose reason for being there is to publish NOT teach. Try for the good ones, avoid the indifferent and you will get a solid education!

3 College Senior

Academics: Poor Class Schedule for Juniors and Senior, Poor Math Department – There is an issue with the way classes are offered. Required classes for junior and senior levels are in short supply and often at difficult times. In addition capstone classes are often offered only once a year, creating turmoil for those trying to graduate.
The math department overall is strong on 'publishing' and extremely weak on teaching. It seems the bulk of professors were hired for their publishing with little to no regard to whether they want to teach!
There have been problems with degrees being listed in the catalog without supporting classes.

5 College Senior

Academics: The mission of the Department of Marketing at UNC Charlotte is to provide an intellectually challenging educational program that will develop marketing and other business students as ethical and competent managers and leaders; to conduct and publish research that will contribute significantly to knowledge and understanding of marketing; and to reach out to the community and region through continuing education, applied research, service, and consulting activities.
The focus of the department’s educational program is experiential learning and teaching excellence in a caring environment.
The Belk College has moved to a centralized advising system for all undergraduate students. Advisors are assigned to students by last name.
There are many internship available and they send out emails to make sure you are aware.

1 College Senior

Parking: Not a Fan – Permits are reasonable I suppose for how much it cost per half hour ($1). Don't really need a car, everything is on campus from banks, restaurants, theatre, salon etc. There are so many people the availability and convenience of parking spaces is horrible. Not close to class either.

5 College Senior

Majors: Very Satisfied – I love my program! Faculty and staff really prepare you! I would do it all over again! I would like to own and operate a chain of hotel resorts and my marketing degree will ensure that I successfully market my business!

3 College Senior

Majors: Not as Easy as Others – Because we are randked in the top 10 business programs many people are looking to get into the program. In order to make sure only those who will work hard get in there are many requirements. GPA critical!!

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: There are a variety of different food places you can eat on campus. It does get old going to either dining hall.

3 College Junior

Facilities: Out With the Old, IN With the New. I feel like the UNCC campus has two campuses within one. There are the old buildings (Rowe, Storrs, Friday, etc) and then you have the newly built facilities in the mid 2000 (such as CoEd, CHHS). I think the old buildings do need major updates, I feel pretty bad for the art majors because they definitely need more spaces!
