How to Make Commuting Easier – The weather at UNC Charlotte is fairly decent. Although there are times throughout the year where there is frequent heavy rainfall, UNC Charlotte makes it easier to commute through campus. There are several accessible sheltered shuttle stops locate strategically on campus that arrive every 15-20 minutes.

I am yet to see a full library without any available computers. As far as wifi, every building on campus sends signal. So if you have a personal computer thats great but not completely needed.

On the Way up – Charlotte is a growing school and sports are following the trend. Basketball and soccer are currently our main sports but footballs on its way and is going to be huge! Go 49ers!

Can Be Great – I have enjoyed to process. The professors I have had were great, knowledgeable and wanted the students to enjoy learning. It is up to the student to know there strengths and weaknesses and to take classes accordingly. Facilities (ie computer labs) range from fair to good so having your own computer and software can be critical. Internships are advertised within the department and well known companies as well as government agencies 'shop' for interns and employees.

Can Be Quite Aggressive – Academic is fairly cut and dried. The student has a period of time to contest a grade and then that is it. Plagiarism is any form is a huge deal...especially in the computer science department. It can get you tossed out of school. The grading policy is an outline within which the professors do have some latitude.
Socially...the campus police are relatively fair BUT they have no tolerance for driving drunk OR driving poorly on campus. Follow the rules and you will be fine.

The Great Ones Make up for the Indifferent – It pays to talk to other students about the professors! There are some great ones here. They love their subject, stay current and most importantly can teach. Then there are those (more than you would believe) whose reason for being there is to publish NOT teach. Try for the good ones, avoid the indifferent and you will get a solid education!

Poor Class Schedule for Juniors and Senior, Poor Math Department – There is an issue with the way classes are offered. Required classes for junior and senior levels are in short supply and often at difficult times. In addition capstone classes are often offered only once a year, creating turmoil for those trying to graduate.
The math department overall is strong on 'publishing' and extremely weak on teaching. It seems the bulk of professors were hired for their publishing with little to no regard to whether they want to teach!
There have been problems with degrees being listed in the catalog without supporting classes.

Not a Fan – Permits are reasonable I suppose for how much it cost per half hour ($1). Don't really need a car, everything is on campus from banks, restaurants, theatre, salon etc. There are so many people the availability and convenience of parking spaces is horrible. Not close to class either.

Very Satisfied – I love my program! Faculty and staff really prepare you! I would do it all over again! I would like to own and operate a chain of hotel resorts and my marketing degree will ensure that I successfully market my business!

Not as Easy as Others – Because we are randked in the top 10 business programs many people are looking to get into the program. In order to make sure only those who will work hard get in there are many requirements. GPA critical!!

There are a variety of different food places you can eat on campus. It does get old going to either dining hall.

Out With the Old, IN With the New. I feel like the UNCC campus has two campuses within one. There are the old buildings (Rowe, Storrs, Friday, etc) and then you have the newly built facilities in the mid 2000 (such as CoEd, CHHS). I think the old buildings do need major updates, I feel pretty bad for the art majors because they definitely need more spaces!

On Campus and Off Campus Options. On campus, the trolleys run from 7 am until midnight and there are 3 routes that provide pretty good service. Off campus, the city buses will take you where you need to go, but a car would be better. One day, the light rail will run from campus to downtown, where all the bars, concerts, sports, etc happens. Downtown is where all the nightlife is.

Civil Engineering – The faculty is fantastic and we have some of the brightest minds in the industry, however the curriculum could be seriously improved and advanced. Legislation has sort of tied the school's hands on this one, but other engineering colleges make better use of the available curriculum and what is needed in the workforce. I wish there was more emphasis on computer applications as well, in addition to the theory we are taught.

Never Enough – To park in one of the closer lots, be on campus before 9:30am or after 2pm. Otherwise, you'll likely have to park in one of the satellite lots which are on the edge of campus and which means you have to walk a mile or more to get to class. Parking gets really tight between 9:30am and 11am and it's almost impossible to find a good spot. Unfortunately, most classes begin at ~9:30am or 11am. It's extra frustrating when Parking Permits are so expensive!

Forcast: Mild and Sunny! In Charlotte we get 216 days of sun or partly sunny. That's 62% of the year! If we get rain, it's generally drizzly or light, occasionally torrential (think downpour). The winters usually don't go below 40 degrees on any given day, although it usually floats somewhere around the 50s. It can get very cold (think 30s) but doesn't last long. Snow is a treat because we hardly ever get it and it doesn't last for more than a few days. Usually the school is prudent about avoiding hazardous driving conditions. Summers are HOT and kinda muggy. It gets bad in July and August when temps are in the 90s+. Fall and Spring are the best because of the breeze and the mildest temps (unless you have allergies).

Nothing Like Charlotte – On the campus of UNC-Charlotte, we have over 350 organizations. With this, there is always something to do and something to be a part of as well. These organizations make students feel welcomed and at home.

The Best There Is – UNC-Charlotte has the most amazing campus that there is. Not only do you have a lot to do on campus, but you have a lot to do off campus as well. Having uptown Charlotte only 3 exits up down from the school and having Concord Mills only 3 exits up, puts you in the middle of a great time. There is no such thing as being bored in Charlotte. The campus life is wonderful. There are over 350 organizations and clubs on campus to help you feel welcomed and overjoyed.

Process Could Have Been Clearer – I did however, receive financial aid. My amount wasn't too much to my liking. I'm not sure if my parents and I filled out some parts on the application wrong, however, it did help to talk with my advisor at school and the financial aid office in order to understand the process in filling out financial aid.

Easy a for Business Program – The process of getting into the Business program at UNCC was simply like putting butter in my mashed potatoes, EASY. There was no application process that I had to do. During my sophomore year, I had to take pre-requisites and obtain a grade C or higher in them within two attemps. After completing those, I am now in the program. Easy as 1 plus 1.

UNCC offers many scholarships that you can apply for directly from the school website. They offer many with different majors and concentrations. The office of financial aid is very helpful and extends out their hand to give you the information you need on any scholarship. On the other hand, they don't offer much financial aid based on parent's income. I wish they looked at how many others are in college that the parents are paying for and the job positions they have.

Uptown Charlotte – Clubs are amazing downtown/uptown, but watch out for the creeps. I must say there are many creepy people that will stare you down. I always ignore them and have a blast. There are clubs on every street uptown along with bars. So if your down for dancing all night, its really the best place to go. Also, I've never had to pay except for once at the clubs because most of them will allow females to get in for free if your there by a certain time. There is Coyote Joes which offers line dancing and more country themed if your not into the clubs and bars. It's pretty fun and I've enjoyed myself at any place I have attended uptown.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
