Athletic Training – The UNC school system's budget was cut and needed to eliminate some programs. NCCU's Athletic Training program was not recommended by the committee to be eliminated. However, our new provost recommened that it be eliminated to the chancellor. After months of meetings and listening forums where students of the Athletic Training Education Program (ATEP) made our voices heard and demonstrated why our program should not be eliminated the chancellor decided against the provost's decision. We now have over 100 freshmen interested in our program. It is highly competetive so we only take a select number of applicants. Yes, you have to apply to the program! This is what makes us unique and keeps up competitive with other universities' programs. It is a very difficult program, as it is a medical profession. However, the knowledge and connections you'll attain are worth every ounce of sweat and every second of lost sleep.

I went through a misunderstanding with my financial aid. It was kind of a headache! I was told that everything was covered with my finacial aid, except my books, and I would not have to take out any loans. Well, a week and a half into my first semester the school dropped all my classes because they said that I did not have enough money to attend school. Although I actually had the money.After the phone calls from my father to the finacial aid office, the running around collecting signatures from professors, and standing in line everything was fixed. I suggest entering your finacial aid early and also making appointments reguarly with the financial aid office.

Campus life is what you make of it! If you don't get out there and enjoy the scenery on campus then you won't known what we have to offer. For example we have the art museum on campus, that some students don't know about. There it's quiet and beautiful as the exhibits change ever so often as they feature different artist. We have a pool I haven't been in it only because the time I spend in the Walker complex is usually in the gym or dance studio, but it's rather large and spacious! Great for swimming laps or just swimming with friends. Two floor gym space equipped with everything you need to get a full body work out. There are three libraries on campus the main one being three floors also have a computer lab and there are also other labs in some dorm buildings, and other classroom buildings. Explore campus and know what's out there for yourself.
