4 College Senior

Campus Quality: Campus life is great! There are so many activities offered on campus, and most are free! We have a movie theater and a hair salon on campus, and they both have wonderful staff! Our campus is also very diverse. We have a high transfer-in rate, as well as a high rate of international students, so we are able to meet people from various age, gender, orientation, and ethical backgrounds.

Parking: The prices are really expensive for parking passes, and it doesn't even guarentee you a parking space! I like the free parking on weekends, but I am hardly ever on campus then. Having a car on campus is not a necessity, however, it does make getting to class easier, because the shuttles are hardly on time.

Health & Safety: I never really feel unsafe here, but you do have to be observant since you're in a big city.

Scholarships: There are scholarships available, but they are for a very specific type of student (not the upper middle class white female).

Party Scene: The frats throw parties, but they do get busted. There are a lot of bars close by that people go to, mainly freshmen though.

Athletics: Football is growing..soccer is pretty popular, as is baseball. But sports are definitely not as big a deal here as they are at other large state schools.

Campus Housing: I love living on campus because it's great to be around fellow students. The high rises are nasty (hey cockroaches) but you can't beat how easy it is to meet people.

Campus Food: RDH is not very good, Crown is worth the walk. Crown is decent..you'll quickly learn what will tear your stomach apart and what won't.

Weather: Charlotte has pretty mild weather, but of course there are some cold winter days and some HOT summer days. If you're from the south, it's no big deal, but if you're from the north, the heat may be a bit of a shock.

Transportation: There are buses that run constantly and have multiple pick up/drop off locations. SafeRide is also an option at night.

Parking: There is plenty of parking if people are willing to walk! There is ALWAYS a spot in the South Deck Parking Garage. Obviously if you try to park close to academic buildings, you'll have issues. There are usually plenty of spots available behind Fretwell though.

Guys & Girls: I feel like there way more attractive girls than there are guys here. There are definitely more guys here, and quite a variety (the frat type, country type, city guy).

Off-Campus Housing: I love living at Uwalk right across the street from campus. I can walk and save on a parking pass and the place is really nice and affordable

Campus Quality: All of the facilities on campus are great. They are doing so much building and so much renovation that the campus almost looks new!

Overall Experience: I would choose Charlotte again in a heartbeat. I love the campus, the people are so nice, professors are great, and it feels like home. There are so many opportunities on campus, you just have to take advantage of them. Don't wait to start getting involved as as junior or senior. I'm a freshman and I already have so many connections it's amazing. I know so many people that would write me recommendation letters and I know all of my professors one on one. It is a great experience, something that you should miss out on!

Campus Food: The dining Halls aren't terrible. Crown gets pretty boring after a few weeks. But the other restaurants on campus are great. Mama Leones takes meal swipes. I would say that prospector is the best with Chick fil a and Salsaritas.

Guys & Girls: Of course there is every type of guy on campus. One thing I noticed when I came to the school was that most every person, guys especially, holds the door if you are behind them. People say hi to you and everyone is very friendly. There are a lot of organizations on campus to help you to find like minded people.

Parking: I don't drive, but I go many places with my friends. For the most part, we can find a spot right next to our building. If it is very late at night or in the middle of the day, we usually have to park a little bit farther away, but it's still not a far walk.

Greek Life: Rush week is so different than the reality. I know both guys and girls who joined a fraternity and sorority and now hate it! But I also know people who love it. It really depends on your personality. I was going to rush my freshman year and join a sorority, but I'm so glad I decided to wait a year. I know now after learning each sorority's reputation and meeting some of the people that I don't have time, and it is not something that I would enjoy. It's very expensive too! Maybe not as expensive as some schools, but dues are between $500 and $1000. That doesn't include all of the clothes sororities make you buy. If you refuse to buy, you get fined. You bank account will easily reach $0. I'm not Greek but I have a lot of friends who are. These are facts that I have been told. Take the decision to rush and join Greek life seriously. Remember that rush week is nothing like the real thing (for sororities at least). Once you get initiated, there's no getting out it.

Off-Campus Housing: I live on campus, but I know some people who live off campus, and they like it. Living on campus is so much more convenient though!

Athletics: Intramural sports are pretty popular. Varsity sports are becoming more popular as the University grows. Football was added in 2013. I think as that becomes more established, sports will become more popular. Basketball games are very fun. There is a large group of students who go to all of the games. The student section is a lot of fun.
