Off-Campus Housing: There's off campus housing in walking distance- people should be ecstatic about that.

Scholarships: I wasn't awarded any financial aid as I entered Grad school so I have to pay out of pocket for everything. I was told that I have taken too much out at this point and haven't paid enough back, even though I've been making payments to my college loans for about four years now (the money is all going to paying interest off, however). The whole institution is ridiculous- we are told we need these degrees to get a good job, but we can't afford to pay for schooling because we can't find a good job. It's a vicious cycle and more financial aid scholarships and grants should be offered no matter what race, age, living situation, parent income is- none of that effects me, but I'm being penalized for it.

Academics: The courses are extremely relevant to the field I'm entering, but I just started the program so I can't answer this question fully just yet.

Academics: The campus seems extremely diverse in study areas and curriculum. I haven't met many professors yet but I have tried to contact them via email to discuss their courses and they all responded, which I thought was very helpful.

Party Scene: I love our nightlife. Everything seems to be within a 15 minute drive and there's something for everyone. If you like the clubs, you can go uptown to the epicenter or music factory. If you like the artsy spots, you can visit Noda or Plaza Midwood. You can find a small hole in the wall bar just about anywhere if you're looking to just play some pool and hangout without all the noise, and you can even go to Studio Movie Grill and watch a movie WHILE drinking- it's a pretty amazing area.

Diversity: I haven't had any trouble with intolerance, and have been able to make a group of very diverse friends without trouble. Diverse groups are common, but it it also common to see people in what I call "clone groups" where everyone in said group looks and dresses the same way.

Guys & Girls: First of all, it is completely unfair that only the girls are rated in this survey. What if I like guys and want to rate them?
Secondly, people like different things. People are people. People will find people to date anywhere and everywhere. A survey can't tell anyone if they will be able to find someone at one school over another. Ridiculous.

Off-Campus Dining: There are plenty of places near campus to choose from, and if you choose to venture into the city. there are literally hundreds of restaurants to choose from.
Many of the places near campus open late. Some even deliver to the dorms (pizza, subs, Chinese food).

Technology: Certain majors have access to nicer computer labs with more privileges. Computer Science students get unlimited printing in CS labs. Engineering students have the newest labs with a print quota. Labs that are open to all are also pretty nice, but printing costs a couple cents per page. 90% of the buildings have free wi-fi access. The network is very reliable, and the speeds are decent. The network speeds in some of the specialized labs are godly fast 100Mbps or more!

Parking: On campus parking is great, but it's very expensive. ($400) Also, during football season, there are certain lots reserved for tailgating party events. If you forget to move your car, it will be towed and you will have to pay $75 as a result. This can be very inconvenient. Off-campus parking is nearly non-existent. Some of the nearby apartment complexes have guest parking, where they do not tow non-resident vehicles, but the walk is not worth the hassle if you live on campus.

Campus Housing: The majority of the dorms on campus are really nice! Many of the horrendously old ones have been torn down and replaced. There are still a few that are waiting to be replaced, but they are still healthy clean living spaces. Every dorm has weekly events to encourage people to meet their neighbors, while learning to live as healthy, smart adults.

Drug Safety: Alcohol and drugs on campus are there, but not horribly noticeable. Most people keep it hidden pretty well and I don't do these things on campus, so I don't see it often. Most people who are old enough to drink legally, do it off campus. Those who aren't, go off campus with those who are.
Marijuana can be smelled in dorms occasionally, especially in freshman dorms, where students are testing boundaries. In upperclassmen dorms, people who smoke have either learned to take it somewhere else, or live off campus.
ADD medication is sometimes passed around to help with studying. This becomes more noticeable near exam time. I have a few friends who have tried it, but I personally don't touch the stuff. My mother is a mental health nurse, and she has told me that the majority of her patients can trace their mental illness to drug use, so I don't touch any of it.

Transportation: I have only carpooled or driven home, so I cannot say much about the other modes of transportation.

Academics: Being a Compute Science student at UNC Charlotte is great! The professors are very helpful. The early classes are easy, but the later ones can be very rough. If you find yourself struggling, there are free tutors available. Also students are encouraged to study in groups. Many businesses recruit directly from students in the Computer Science department for paid internships and full time positions. Some of these businesses include Bank of America, Vanguard, National Security Agency, Premier, IBM, and Microsoft. There are also merit-based scholarships awarded each year.
