I absolutely adored the campus and staff. I have many of friends who attend UNCC and I myself have been on multiple tours and seen what this university has to offer. Quite amazing to see how much this school has grown since the time my mother has graduated.

So far my experience at Charlotte has been nothing but great! All of the students, my fellow peers, have been so welcoming and so friendly. The campus is beautiful and offers so much and I am so excited to be a part of Charlotte.

The course itself is an interesting one which makes the school unique. The classes and method of teaching encourage self development and most of the professors are always willing to help.
