3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I only went to a couple of parties my freshmen year and none of them were on campus. I rarely hear of parties outside of fraternities of sororities.

Athletics: It's fun to go to games and most are free to students. Intramural is a blast, and they have all different kinds of sports from flag football to tennis... basketball, soccer, volleyball... so much fun!

Off-Campus Housing: There are several different apartment complexes on the edge of campus. They're reportedly cheaper than living on campus, too. I prefer to live on campus, because then you don't need a car or to commute at all. All the buildings are close by and you can just go back to your dorm and take a nap between classes instead of waiting around until your next class or driving in and out of traffic. The school hosts some information sessions where representatives from all nearby housing people come to campus and give out free stuff.

Off-Campus Dining: They have a cookout, a chipotle, and a moe's right off campus. They also have a frozen yogurt place nearby.

Administration: I missed 36 classes this semester and made a 4.0. Also, I was taking 19 credit hours at the time. Although, I probably wouldn't recommend missing that much class. Certain classes, like language courses, take attendance and allow a certain amount of absences before penalties. Other classes uses clickers and quizzes as participation and attendance. Some teachers are okay with you being absent as long as you participate when you are there and turn your stuff in on time and with good quality. If you're caught drinking under age, odds are you'll get a drinking ticket. Don't do drugs in your dorm... or on campus. If you do, and you get caught... good luck. Visitation in dorms is super lax. At least our building has 24 hour visitation hours. The honor code is taken very seriously.

Scholarships: It wasn't a problem at all for me. Sent in the documents that were requested and everything else was smooth sailing. I knew exactly how much I was getting and how much I needed to pay.

Campus Food: Personally, I think the food in Crown is fine. There's variety, but I would say the biggest problem is it's not necessarily healthy food. The meal plan is actually pretty expensive as a freshmen. My suggestion is to get a meal plan with 175 swipes and $300 db instead of the Unlimited swipes and $200 db. 175 swipes lets you swipe people in and the unlimited plan does not. I had unlimited my first semester and then switched to 175. I swiped in around 40 people throughout the semester and I still had over 50 at the end. And my DB lasted longer, too of course.

Campus Housing: The cost of attendance is pretty reasonable all things considered. The suite style dorms are pretty nice. I wouldn't like the high rises because an entire floor shares a bathroom, but maybe that's just me. In suites, four people share a bathroom. The building I live in is awesome. Everyone gets along for the most part and we host a lot of social activities. Conveniently located to get to different academic buildings within a 15 minute walk. Housing process is a piece of cake.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing is awesome and The Edge is the best place to live in my opinion.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Party life is ok it could be better though many weekends are dull.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Off campus dining is magnificent and I usually eat off campus often.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: Campus is very easygoing and doesn't feel like a school prison.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Scholarships are okay but I wish that there were more offered,

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: There are many food options on campus and all of it provides tasty meals.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Housing is an experience for students in highrises. Recommend staying in Martin because it's the best place to live.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Very costly, more affordable to live off campus. Not to mention you are forced to purchase a very costly meal plan. I lived in a dorm and social atmosphere and proximity to class was great, definitely the best way to stay connected and make sure your going to class, but it's so unaffordable that the perks don't outweigh the cost.

Administration: Parking policies are very strict at the university. Prices are very high and competitive spots makes finding parking and specific locations very unreasonable. Myself and many other students would like to advocate for parking changes at this university as demonstrated in my social welfare and policy course. Visitation policies in the dorms are very reasonable, my freshmen year the policies affecting overnight stay was very fair. The honor code at this university is taken very seriously which positively benefits the universities credibility.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: I submit and relieved my aid every year on time and the process was not a hassle. I have utilized loans and grands at this university. The offers I receive are reasonable. The grad school program I am applying to next year was ranked #1 most affordable in the nation in 2014.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: Student staff is very nice, although the older staff are often very rude especially in crown. I moved off campus and still spend a lot of time in crown, prospector, and at crown. Food selection and variety is very satisfying. I also enjoy the salad bar options in crown and prospector. A great way to allow healthy dining in the meal plan.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Members of the Greek community enjoy it, but non-Greeks dislike the majority of Greeks because Greeks are a minority on campus but have the largest impact in terms of Student Government, Student-Administration Relationships, and overall representation of and on campus. Greek housing needs much improvement. Greek village only host 1 fraternity, the majority of fraternities choose to live off campus because the rates of living the the village is far to expensive.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: For one of the largest universities in the state, participating in Division 1, in a respected conference, the student support is not nearly what is should be.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Its cheaper than on-campus. Better Quality.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: They make UNCC safe, but seem to cross the line.

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The FA staff is not helpful and sometimes rude.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The meal plan is only good in the food courts.
