Party Scene: I'm not much of a "partyer" but of the ones I've went to have been walking distance and I've ended up enjoying myself. Also, they've all been off-campus and my friends have offered to take me to and fro.

Drug Safety: It was very apparent who was getting drunk and high in my dorm during my freshman year, but that year was the only one in that drinking (and getting high) was a problem. Most people that were being belligerent were punished for it.

Guys & Girls: The guys and girls here are mostly accepting and cool; I have yet to meet someone who is ignorant or mean to others.

Weather: Once again, as an athlete I had to get up earlier than most students for workouts but the weather/temperature was generally warm or slightly below warm (which is perfect for runners!)

Technology: As an athlete, I have access to a private computer lab at UNCC but I initially did not use my laptop or the lab very often. There are a variety of places to access computers and there is wireless network availability in most places throughout the campus.

Health & Safety: Overall I feel really safe on campus. I have no fears walking around at night by myself or fear that my personal belongings will be stolen from my dorm. The campus police are there if you need them and their number is available at all times for students to use.

Transportation: On campus the transportation is great but when it comes to getting to the greyhound/megabus station or the Amtrak it is really inconvenient. Even though students have access to public transportation, you still need a car to get a round in Charlotte,

Campus Quality: UNC Charlotte offers a variety of academic and job opportunities for their students. They also offer unique programs such as ROTC and study abroad. The atmosphere is great! There is a lot to do and a lot to get involved with on campus. The academic buildings are really nice, with new technology in the classrooms that make learning interesting, and there are new dorms that are being contracted to accommodate the growing population. Overall, I really enjoy the school and all it has to offer and I am looking forward to spending the next 2.5 years there!!

Campus Quality: There are a ton of things to do that the students can get involved with. The athletic department and its faculties are really great and the students have the opportunity to play recreational sports or competitive sports. The library is really nice and it is a great space to hangout out in between classes. UNC Charlotte crates a lot of spaces for student to hang out in that are really nice and relaxing.

Overall Experience: Overall I really like UNC Charlotte. It is really diverse, there is a lot to do on and off campus, it offers a wide variety of majors/minors and I found a lot of opportunities here that every college does not offer.

Technology: Its okay but I would recommend bringing your own computer and printer because the labs are not open to everyone and printing is not free. The library is not open 24 hours on the weekend and during registration week it is hard to find a free computer in the library.

Off-Campus Housing: I do not live off campus but I have friends that do and I would definitely consider doing it because its cheaper than on campus living and the living conditions are better than the housing on campus.

Administration: Its pretty easy going around here. You can get away with just about anything. As long as you are not breaking the law you are pretty much free to do just about anything you want.

Guys & Girls: The people here are pretty relaxed. We have a large international population so I am constantly coming in contact with people of different nationalities. UNC Charlotte is also a graduate school so I also come in contact with people of all ages.

Weather: The weather is okay. Living in Charlotte, North Carolina, we experience a little bit of all the seasons. The weather does not affect my campus experience because I was raised in the area so I am used to this weather.

Academics: I haven't started working in my major yet because I am still working on my general education classes. I specifically came to UNC Charlotte for their communications program so I am really excited to start working on my major next year.

Academics: Since I am only working on my general education classes, my classes aren't too difficult, my professors are great and my workload varies depending on what assignments I get that week.

Campus Housing: Overall housing is pretty good. 2-3 new dorms opened this semester and another is opening next fall. Pricing depends on where you live but you do have the option of on/off campus apartments that vary in pricing.

Greek Life: UNC Charlotte has many Greek organizations for the students to get involved in, from honorary societies to fraternities and sororities. I have seen them sponsor events around campus but they pretty much stay to themselves. Greek village is really nice but its also really expensive to live in as well.

Parking: Parking sucks! the permits are expensive and the spots fill up quickly. I would buy a commuter pass, even if I was living on campus, because they get all the parking.

Local Area: The school is located about 20 minutes outside of downtown Charlotte. There are a good number of cheap restaurants around campus for those who are on a budget. There is a bus that comes on campus that takes the students to Walmart and downtown Charlotte so the students without cars do have access to other parts of the city. The campus its self is really beautiful. There are lots of trails and wooded areas for people to explore. Overall I feel pretty safe on campus and there is a lot to do on campus, from the sports, recreational and competitive, as well as clubs that are open to all the students.
