Local Area: The uptown Charlotte area is definitely geared towards high-earning business professionals, since it is a banking center. Other than that the burbs offer a great semi-urban atmosphere while still remaining affordable.

Off-Campus Housing: There are at least 5 new apartment complexes being built within 5 blocks of the college. They are super modern with amazing amenities.

Health & Safety: I feel extremely safe on campus. There are many wooded areas within campus, and they are all very well lit. There are blue emergency kiosks all throughout campus and always within view. There are SafeRide shuttles that run until 2am throughout the week.

Campus Housing: The university recently completed three suite- and apartment-style dorms on campus. They are currently building an exclusively apartments dorm. Several dorms are being shut-down for renovations. The South Village (High-Rise hall style) is receiving a brand-new dining hall. New suite/apartment dorms are planned for the South Village. All housing options are suite (bedrooms with a shared living room and bathroom) or apartment style, excluding the highrises (which will soon be converted to suite style.)

Athletics: The field-space is great on-campus. However, the gym is too small for the increasing number of students attending and staying on campus. At sporting events, school spirit is amazing. Even during the week, students sport their Niner gear.

Drug Safety: There are only select groups of students involved with drugs. Most drug and alcohol abuse occurs off campus. The on-campus use is at an extreme minimum, but it does happen. The university is great on following protocol and enforcing consequences for offenses.

Academics: The College of Engineering at UNC Charlotte is extremely rigorous and innovative. The program is migrating into a new complex on the West side of campus. With new buildings come new technologies, innovations, and opportunities. Engineering is held in high regard at UNCC. The faculty are well-qualified and helpful. The university works directly with Duke Energy, SIEMENS, and Areva, among many other engineering corporations and companies. The Campus Research Institute (CRI), where the new engineering buildings are located, operates to apply student innovations and projects to industry needs described by professional enterprises. Both the city of Charlotte and UNC Charlotte are exponentially expanding in state, national, and global reputation.

Technology: There are tons of computer clusters throughout the library, but there are also single PC's and Mac's scattered for independent studies. Some colleges provide "major-exclusive" computer labs such as engineering and sciences. There is WiFi in every academic and activity building, and you can almost always access the network between buildings while walking. I'm not sure about print quota because engineers have their own labs and print quota's.

Local Area: The city of Charlotte is beautiful. There is so much a person can do. I have not been able to really explore the many attractions in the city though.

Athletics: I feel that the athletic department is likely to grow because in the past year we now have a football team. A lot of school spirit was shown during this time and tickets were always sold out.

Transportation: The campus shuttle provides great transportation around the campus. Because the campus is so large a lot of walking is required so the campus shuttle really comes in handy.

Transportation: Safe Ride seems to be the one I hear about the most. Safe Ride seems to be very convenient for residents. I always see them around so I'm sure the pick-up times are reasonable. If students don't feel safe walking to their dorm or car, they can take Safe Ride.

Weather: The weather for the past several months has been crazy. One day it's hot, then the next day it's freezing. I do not enjoy my fifteen minute walks to class when it's cold. I do not mind my walks at all when it's warm out.

Majors: From what I recall, Statistics, General Psychology, and a Natural Science class was required to declare Psychology as your major. I did find it challenging because I had to have my Associate in Arts in order to get into the program. I wasn't allowed to register for classes and such until a few days before classes started. You must earn a C or better in the required classes in order to declare Psychology as your major. I would try my best to earn at least a B in those classes so you can have a higher chance of getting into the program. I had a 3.7 GPA then. You will definitely have a higher chance of getting in with a higher GPA.

Majors: I enjoy my program very much. My professors are so educated and knowledgable. It inspires me. They have a passion for their expertise and it makes the classes even more interesting. I do get a lot of homework. It's mostly readings from the textbooks and chapter books. The readings have to be done in order to do well in the class for quizzes are assigned regularly.
