1 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: I like making designs with the radio buttons :D

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The city is not a long drive away and there is a lot to do there. There is a big mall not too far away either. There isn't much to do immediately around the campus. You have to be willing to drive places.

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Charlotte is such a big city and it is a lot to always do and places to go here. There are a lot of malls, and the Uptown area is lovely and has a lot to do as well. There's also carowinds theme park is you just want to go to an amusement park. There is so much to do here

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: There's always something going on in the city of Charlotte but it's hard to get around anywhere if you don't have a car. Without one you either have to catch a ride on a bus, or with a friend because downtown is a ways away.

5 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: I love Charlotte. You have the parks and greenways to take advantage of, the suburban areas with their malls and shopping strips. Then you have downtown with bars and clubs. South Charlotte has an art district which reminds me a bit of Brooklyn, NY. It's a great place to visit if you're into art/beer/food.
