Apartments Etc. In Charlotte there are a lot of great apartment complexes to choose from. These are more expensive and are directly in the city. They are modern and trendy, like The Circle for example. These include a parking garage as well. There are also apartments right in walking distance of the campus that have excellent perks like workout centers and pools.

Loving the Charlotte Food – Being right by the city of Charlotte is a great convenience when it comes to going out off campus. There are plenty of clubs, bars, and restaurants of all different costs. There are a few student discounts, but when you find them, they are a good save. Amelies is a more sophisticated french bakery while Mattie's Diner is a great stop for burgers.

It costs almost 400 dollars for a parking permit at school. If there were plenty of parking then the price is alright but at certain times of the day there are so many people on campus that it is hard to fnd somewhere to park. It gets very frusterating. If you live on campus then a car is not neccesary.

Health & Safety:
Our Safety – We do have a few crimes that go on in the apartments by the school. Everytime something happend the school sends out an email to let the students know what happened and how to try and prevent it from happening to you. We have many police officers around campus all day so I know that I personally feel safe.

It's Always Sunny in NC – Coming from the frigid Midwest (Detroit, Michiga), the weather here in Charlotte NC is sunny and warm during the non-summer months and sunny and HOT during the summer months.

Spirited Athletic Group – Even though UNC - Charlotte doesn't have the biggest sports program, the students still get behind the sports and consistently support their teams and events.

Over Campus Appeal – The campus at UNC - Charlotte is a beautiful campus. From the facilties, to the faculty, to the grounds keeping. The school takes enourmous pride in providing the students with the best possible learning enviornment.

Health & Safety:
Health and Safety – The olny reason I did not give UNCC an A+ is because parkinglots are not well lit especially the ones around the dorms, ohter than that UNCC is reasonably good.

The off-campus housing is a little old, but the prices aren't bad. And depending on where you go, you are within walking or biking distance of the school. But I haven't lived in an off-campus aparment yet, so I'm not exactly sure of the landlords or parking. But safety is okay, I get kinda scared at night because things do happen to people sometimes...

There is a huge variety of individuals around campus and most people are very acceptant and even willing to answer questions that someone has reguarding their background or ethnicity.

Variety Is Good – There is a very good variety of off dining choices around the university. There is a wide range of anything you want from fast food to fine dining all within a mile or two.

Computer labs are usually pretty available and the wireless internet is dependable. Speed is also good.

Good Experience – My school as a whole is pretty unschool spirited, pretty bland, pretty ordinary. Pretty interested in going to class and going home and that's it. However, I am an art student where we have a really tight knit community. I have met a lot of genuine people who work hard and who will be lifelong friends.

Total Commuter School – Everyone drives to UNCC. If you live close enough to campus, you might walk or ride your bike. The price and availability of parking is not appealing, so many students park at apt complexes they don't live in and walk to school. There is a free shuttle system that I rode once that only goes through campus and not off campus, but the most efficient way to get between classes is just to walk.

Greeks and Non-Greeks Are Segregated – I am not in a Greek organization, but I feel that there is a pretty strong division between Greeks and non-greeks. I don't have a single friend in a frat or sorority, and I have a lot of friends. They also tend to keep to themselves. They really like to gossip. There is brand new greek housing on campus, but I have never been there. I know that there are no parties allowed there. There are some off-campus greek houses. I went to one party, and it was dirty and not fun.

After Dark – After Dark the campus kind of dies down. Alot of people dont like staying on campus, they rather go out into the city or to the mall. There is not much to do around campus unless you wanted to go to someones dorm and drink. The school however does have awesome transportation. If you are drunk you are able to call the school cab so that they can take you home, and it is only $15.

GET a ROOM! I dont live on campus but a lot of my friends do. They tell me it is really nice to live on campus but a bit too expensive. I would love to live on campus, therefore Im applying for the scholarships. The University is fairly new and so are the dorms. They are always in the process of building more because the student population is growing.

Delicious but Not Original – The dining places around campus carry delcious foods. However, It is the same food that I see while Im driving. UNCC has Wendy's and Chick Fil'A whcih are the two most popular ones. They created their own version of Subways and named it 'Healthy Subs'. They do have a cafe named 'Prospectors" which is tasty but not as popular as Wendy's.

Beautiful Place – Charlotte is a beautiful location with lots to do uptown from the Blumenthal, to beautiful parks like Freedom,to lots of local night life with classy lounges like Crave Dessert bar. I would highly recommend UNC Charlotte because it is minutes away from uptown life and endless options of entertainment.

School Spirit – UNCC does not have a football team like most major universities so the school spirit is lacking. Basketball and academics are a huge deal to the students since they don't have a huge football team. The school is close to tons of restaurants, bars, shopping and parks for students who need something to do other than homework. It's also a quick drive to uptown where the activities for college students never end. It has everything from old restored churches, to museums, to theaters, and everything in between.

Looking for a parking spot on campus is easy mostly because of the many parking decks. Most of the students live on or around campus and do not opt to drive to school meaning that the students who drive to school can always find a parking spot. Parking is around $300 a semester if you buy the parking permit. That will save you loads of money if you don't want to pay the $8.00 per day. Be careful parking in the student lots without a parking permit...tickets are handed out quickly for that.

Be Smart About It – I know a lot of friends that have been caught drinking in their dorm rooms. But be smart about it. Don't be too loud, have someone sober there to answer the door. If you get a drinking ticket, you have to go to AA classes and they take it off your record. It's easier to get away with it in the apartments and suites than in just the rooms.

Guys & Girls:
Pretty Decent – For the most part, everyone is pleasantly average looking. There are of course the weird looking kids and the gorgeous kids, but in general, people know how to present themselves attractively. Some wear heals and dresses, some are always in work out clothes.

Looking Forward to Being Accepted – I don't really know much about my program because I am currently pre-nursing and not yet in the program it self. But it is very competitive. About 200 people will apply to the program and only about 50 get it. Chemistry is kind of the weed out class for freshman. And it is nice that they have a schedule made out for us.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
