3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Its okay -- the surrounding area is very strip mall ish

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: I love living in my city. Living on the biggest city in North Carolina is amazing. I love it. There is always something to do. There are museums, restaurants, sports, and walking around the city itself is nice.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Charlotte is a big city so shopping and night life is easy to assess. The school is beautiful but probably isn't the safest for anyone can drive through it.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: I love the big city atmophere, but most the time I wish we had a more "collegetown" feel. I think it helps build community, traditions and long-lasting friendships.
