3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: UPTOWN IS A 15 MINUTE DRIVE...WATCH OUT 4 BOOZE IT OR LOSE IT!

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Sports Are by the Hundreds – We have a lot of sports that are offered and a lot of intramural sports that can be played and team spirit and fan support is always encouraged.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Food+College Kids = Love – When it comes to Charlotte everywhere you look there are places to eat. If you go right down the road or to the big city there is always a place to go that is in your budget.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The campus is very diverse. We have people from all over the world and from very different backgrounds. It makes it easy to learn about new cultures everyday. Not many country guys or country girls, which is a hard thing for me to deal with because those people make me feel at home and enjoy what I do.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Personally, I do not live off campus so I cannot give an accurate grade of how that lifestyle is however there are several nice and new apartments to chose from that are on campus or less than five minutes away.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I have enjoyed my time thus far at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. I can commend the university on its consistent growth and improvement with its buildings and programs here on campus. UNC Charlotte changing in it's technology programs too which makes it easier for students to make necessary adjustments to their meal plans,living situations, and specific class needs and resources. I would just like to see more changes in the academic area where classes did not fill up as quickly for heavily populated majors such as psychology and education.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Light on Students; Parking Relentless – Parking doesn't take any mercy (but just avoid parking in the wrong places). Bar that, campus is pretty light on things. Several warnings offered; they want you to have fun here. They just don't want you to get hurt. We have a SWAT team, but I haven't seen them. Don't break the rules that matter, and you'll be fine.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Great, During the Week – Living on-campus is wonderful. Lynch treats freshman handsomely, so get into a learning community. Single dorms, a nice large common area... friends from UNC and State are quite jealous. We've got new residence halls popping up every year or so for the next five years. The only downside is that it can get quiet in dorms like Spruce and Lynch. The high-rises (the bottom of the barrel dorms) are the most social. Witherspoon, however, with honors, internationals, and one floor up-for-grabs is the best of both worlds. It's a commuter school, so don't expect a ton of activity on the weekends, but when we get football (2013), that'll change drastically.

2 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There is an average drug scene at Charlotte. In order to avoid it you have to stay away from certain groups of people.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Constantly Helping Students – The professors and advisors at UNCC are so helpful. I am a student of the Belk School of Business and I have nothing but positive things to say about the career center advisors and the the student advisors. It is easy to schedule appointments with them even around registration day and they are constantly suggesting ways to help me.

2 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There are many drug dealers around campus but not anything that you wouldn't see at some other college, right?

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Plenty of Asians – As a computer science major, you can imagine that Chinese and Japanese students will arise. As a matter of fact, my Computer Science teacher was Asian.

Campus Dining: Resident Dining Hall – The resident dining hall here is awful. They wouldn't be so bad if they tried, but they cook in such large quantities that the forget why they're even cooking. Not an "F" because they do have occasional good food. The grill is excellent.

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Great Social Life and Several Opportunities – Great friends + reasonable social life = Great Charlotte

3 Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: Girls Are Mostly Southern – Blond and black girls make up to 80% of girls on campus

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Pretty Safe – The campus feels very safe, especially considering that there are many blue light alarms everywhere. The campus police sends out emails anytime anything happens on campus, so you feel that you are always aware.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: There are many options for transportation at the school.

1 College Freshman

Parking: There are never any spots and traffic is always a pain. I find walking places ten times easier.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: From One Non- Greek to Another – I went to a frat house one night. I didn't have much fun at all. Not many of the guys were cute and they were all boring. Their house may have been nicer than my little dorm room but the guys weren't worth the trouble.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Boys = Lame – Mostly you get pretty lame guys at Charlotte, if your into the frat guy or jocks or rednecks then this is the place for you. If you want a boy whose unique and different than good luck finding now here.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Lonely on the Weekends – I have a great time during the week, which is weird since usually I love the weekends...but most people go home for the weekends and if you don't have a car, there isn't much to do. It's really quiet.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Some of Everyone – There are a ton of different guys and girls: hipsters, preps, athletes, burnouts, country kids...pretty much everyone. Most people do casual dating and hookups.

4 College Freshman

Campus Dining: Depends on Where You Live – The Residence Dining Hall near the high rises isn't all that great, you kind of just get used to it since most of the time you won't feel like walking 10 mins to Crown Commons, where the great food is at. The other restaurants are pretty good: Wendy's, Chick-fil-a...but some have really weird hours, like Bojangles closes at 3pm so you can't have dinner there...

4 College Senior

Diversity: Various Races and Religions – Lots of races are present at UNCC - Caucasian, African-American, Hispanic, Japanese, Indian, Hindu, etc. There are also numerous events that relate to the heritage of the students. All students are welcomed and accepted at UNCC.

Overall Experience: UNC Charlotte is a great school. The education is definitely top notch. There is alot of work, but it pays off. I love this school, but I have been in Charlotte all of my life. That is why I'm transferring. I am really going to miss the school though.
