5 College Freshman

Facilities: Student Union Building – The Student Union building on campus is so awesome! It has a variety of stores inside such as Starbucks, Barnes & Noble, a movie theater, their own personal salon, and the Apple Store. It's a great hangout spot for students and a lot of the amenities are free which is always a plus!

Academics: I was happy to know that you automatically are enrolled for UNCC's College of Education. My previous school had you take all of your general education classes and then apply for their school of education. You then had to wait to see if you are accepted and sometimes you were not! UNCC is very smart about automatically enrolling.

Overall Experience: It's Okay – I love the campus and being apart of UNCC but with a new football team coming soon, prices are going up. In order for the school to pay for the budget of a football team, prices across the board have been raised. It's ridiculous to me because we will not have a team until the year after I graduate so I'm paying for something that means nothing to me.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Girls Everywhere – Even though there are plenty of guys that attend Charlotte it seems like even more girls do. Girls of all different backgrounds and lifestyles can be found on campus, but not many give us guys the time of day.

3 College Junior

Diversity: Great Mix of Races – At the school there are many different races of people present. With such a variety, more multicultural classes and events are held at campus so more students are exposed to different things.

4 College Senior

Scholarships: First of all make sure that you file FAFSA because if you don't then that is one big miss. The whole financial aid process is somewhat of a hit and miss concept you just have to keep trying to get scholarship and aid from the offices. There are no real tips onto get more aid accept for waiting until you are an independent student and you don't need you parent finances. The last bit of information is good luck for you on getting aid.

4 College Senior

Computers: Computer Labs Are Sweet. Being in the engineering program the computer usage on campus is vastly different than other majors. Engineering as the top of the line computer next the computer science and specific computer labs. Also, printing is done on a quota based for engineering students.

3 College Senior

Academics: Engineering Is No Joke Its Hard Work. Being in the engineering program at Charlotte is challenging like any other school. The workload is typical of engineering student very little time for play and focus on the task at hand. The location of the school in one of North Carolina biggest city allows for numerous opportunities at internships and further jobs opportunities.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: Partying in Charlotte – If you want to go out and have a good time as long as you are of age or go to a club or bar that has college night you are fine. There are buses that go around the campus that take you to Charlotte. So the fact that the city of Charlotte is only a bus ride away the campus seems to be responsible for there actions and does not tolerate a lot.

3 College Junior

Academics: Each teacher has there own way of teaching but I have noticed that the professors that have a back ground in education do a better job of getting the material across than the ones that don't. The classes are great there are plenty of them with the registration process being simple. The workload for each class depends on the class,teacher, and the student. There are a lot of ways to get help if you need it too. The most popular areas for studying would be the library, student union, and when its warm outside the grass or benches and tables that are outside.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greeks Vs. Non Greeks – The Greeks at UNCC are just like the non-Greeks. I am not a Greek but I have a couple of friends that are, they are very nice yes they throw parties but they aren't crazy. The Greeks do not run the school but they do do a lot around the campus. The housing for Greeks you can live in Greek village or you can stay in another dorm on campus its up to the person.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Students at UNCC – There is a variety of boys and girls at UNCC. You can find all kinds of people from everywhere and some are from other areas here in North Carolina. Most students dress casually with some in professional attire. The campus is pretty active with students and you can get along with most people here.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I am a student at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and I am proud to say that I can call myself a 49er. I am a Computer Science major and that I find the Computer Science program here is fantastic. The professors here are very professional and I can always find a way to seek further help all the time if I need to ask them for their help. The campus is very beautiful and spacious and I enjoy walking through campus everyday.

Academics: Registration Process – i thought it was fairly easy to find the classes i needed and register for them.

4 College Junior

Drug Safety: Half and Half – Most of the students on my campus either smoke or drink. Some people are heavy drinkers and some are heavy smokers. It depends on who you hang with; the smokers tend to hang together. A lot of people are pressured into smoking. Most people that smoke said they never did before they got to college. It's pretty easy to find alcohol and there is an ABC store right across the street. The freshman dorms are dry and if you get caught they will write you up. I know a lot of students that received drinking tickets freshman year, although it did not stop them.

2 College Junior

Health & Safety: Not the Safest Place – There has been a recent increase in crime around my campus. There have been a number of break-ins. A girl was recently robbed at gun point in front of the building that I use to live in. These crimes occur at night as well as during the day. I see police paroling from time to time but I still worry about my safety on campus. I never walk anywhere alone. However, our campus does offer Safe Ride to escort you around campus up until 2 am, after that you can receive a police escort.

4 College Junior

Academics: So Far So Good – I just joined my major, Political Science, but so far I am pleased. My school offers plenty of classes for my major, including summer and online classes. Although my school does not have a pre law program it does have a pre law society. This club is extremely helpful. I receive emails about jobs and internships. They also have professionals including lawyers as well as employers come in and talk to us. They also offer LSAT assistance classes. I know a few seniors in my major and they seem to be pretty confident that they will be able to find a job after graduating.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: Their is a long list of scholarships available for many different majors as well as for general discipline. Only problem is that most are offered in the Spring semester and very few in the Fall when many students start.

4 College Junior

Computers: A Good Mix – There are a nice mix of computers on Campus. They are regulated very nicely and are easy to get to/use. Network wise, it is a great system and runs very well, even wireless.

4 College Junior

Academics: Vibrant and Fantastic – I am transferring to UNCC for their computer Engineering program. The campus is fantastic with so much available to do. Their staff and professors are really easy and exciting to work with. I would recommend this to my friends and family for the diversity in programs, awesome atmosphere, and great professors.

Academics: Public Health School – I recently declared my major but the Public Health classes I have taken thus far have been good, and really helped make me confident in my decision to become a Public Health major. I like that they require that you declare a minor, which gives my schedule more variety. I am excited about what I am learning as I become more exposed to what the Public Health field is like.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Off Campus Life – Dining near school plenty of companies allow you to use your I.D for discouts you have shopping area's, movies,

Facilities: Inside Scoop – The thing about UNCC is that people there are very friendly. I felt really welcomed when I started there last fall. The professors are great and really patient. The workers in the financial aid building are really helpful. I love it at UNC-Charlotte.
