3 College Sophomore

Academics: For the most part, things are pretty good here. As long as you stay on top of things and interact with your professors when you need help or have questions. Classes can be big, but you just have to put in the work. Certain departments are a lot better than others, and you learn that as time goes but there's many different supplements to courses such as tutoring and academic success workshops so if you seek those out when having trouble, things should be pretty good for you here.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: Get Your Money's Worth – I did not have any problems with my financial aid and got the max that I could get; however, it would have been nice to get a little bit more to cover food expenses since I live off-campus.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are many places that offer student discounts which is very helpful!

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Queen City – The campus is great, but I feel stuck to the campus. Charlotte is a big city, but the main attraction seems to be uptown Charlotte which gets pretty old after the third visit.

Weather: North Carolina as every knows is very hot. This year we have had an earthquake and a hurricane. None of which effected school. Hot summers and cold winters. When it snows, it snows. Haven't been through a winter yet, but we will see.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: Student Union – The facilities at UNC Charlotte are awesome. The student union is very easy to get around. It has lots to do like hang out with friends at Wendy's. The book store has lots of clothes for parents when they come and visit.

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: So Much Out There – Charlotte is a very big city. It has the Charlotte Motor Speedway and Concord Mall. It is a very busy city and has lots of people. The school doesn't have a football team as of yet but soon will and that is awesome.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Good School – UNCC is a good school to go to. It's a very big campus, but there is always something to do. The only downside is there is so many students who go here, that there is scarce parking. Also parking passes are sooooooo expensive.

5 College Senior

Diversity: UNCC has a large scale of diversity. There are many different people of different ethnicities and racial backgrounds. UNCC is accepting of all types of people.

4 College Senior

Facilities: Atkins Library at UNC-Charlotte – The library on campus is a great place to study and read. The staff is very helpful. The library is also open 24 hours a day 7 days a week. If you don't like to be in the library too late, there is security around as well as other staff members so you won't feel alone.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: NINER NATION, Baby! I honestly have yet to meet an unpleasant person! Upperclassmen are inclusive of freshman, willing to help, and very friendly. I have met some people already in the first week that I know I will be friends with for the rest of my life. There is alwayss something going on here, and always someone willing to go with you. We have free zumba that is a ton of fun, lots of school spirit, and free stuff ALL THE TIME! (: Charlotte is the best in the world!

5 College Freshman

Campus Dining: Food Is FANTASTIC – Probably the best place to eat on campus is Crown Commons. You use your meal plan to go to a buffet style that just re-introduced Wing Sundays! There is always a variety of cuisines to choose from, and everything that I have tried thus far has been spectacular. There are two other dining halls located farther from my dorm, so I have yet to venture to those. Another great option is the Prospecter, home to Chick-fil-a among other vendors. We also have a Bojangles and Wendy's on campus, as well as Starbucks, our own Bistro49, and Mama Leone's pizza. Also, Freshens Smoothies and Breuger's Bagels. Interesting Fact: at sporting events, you can use your Declining Balance (flex dollars) at the concessions stands!!!

5 College Freshman

Academics: Elementary and Special Education – I don't really know much about the job opportunities yet, but as a Teaching Fellow I have a lot of opportunities to be involved in the community. The College of Education is easy to maneuver, and is beautiful. My workload fluctuates between nothing and then all of a sudden a load is dropped on me. The program itself is very helpful and the staff in the College of Education are all helpful and so nice; they are willing to help you in whatever you need help with. Also, Charlotte has a program where students who wish to get a dual licensure in Elementary and Special Education, as I do, apply for a special program after their freshman year, which is going to be competitive considering the amount of interest!

4 College Senior

Scholarships: Fill out your fafsa if you want aid. This school is public!

4 College Senior

Computers: Pauper Friendly – There's usually a computer available somewhere on campus for students to use. Of course wifi is available for those using laptops. Students have the privilege of borrowing a laptop for 24 hours, which includes Macs.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: Dark and Healthy – Its dark at night. There should be more lights to illuminate the various paths in and around the buildings. The heath center is new and seems efficient. There have been numerous reports of attack or burglary of studies roaming the campus at night, as well as break-ins to off campus student apartments.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I didn't have much difficulty with my major. I knew what I wanted to do and I discussed my career goals with an advisor and they informed me of what major I needed to be in.

4 College Freshman

Academics: School Work – The academics here are phenomenal. There are so many different types of classes for whatever you aspire to do in life.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: There's so much to do in Charlotte. Just taking the bus is a new adventure.

2 College Freshman

Majors: UNCC Specific Program – There is not much to do with the specific program. You do mostly general education your freshman year.

2 College Freshman

Academics: UNCC Major – There is not much to do as a freshman in my major everything is general education classes.

2 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The school is great but once you step off campus it kind of seems boring, not much to do but go downtown.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Good food all around campus not in walking distance some food on campus

3 College Junior

Parking: Parking for students living on campus is no problem. There are a large number of spots available near almost all dorms. For commuters its a different story, you are only going to find parking in the good parking decks if you have class before 10 or after 1; if you have class at 11 forget it, you'll have to park in a less convenient lot. But there are always spots available somewhere, it's just a matter of finding them.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: There is always something fun going on around campus. Basketball, baseball, and soccer games are typically packed with students. The recreation fields always have students hanging out and playing sports. Outside of campus there is plenty of shopping, restaurants, and bars which are always filled with college students. Uptown Charlotte is known for the bars and clubs which is a huge attractions for many students. There are "party buses" that bring students from campus and near by apartment complexes to which ever club is having college night and then bring them home. Queens University, Johnston and Whales, and other small colleges/community colleges are near by. Charlotte Motor Speedway is also a great attraction for many visiting or living in Charlotte.
