When there's time to party, Charlotte's bar/club scene is fabulous! Lots of bars and clubs playing new music.

For the most part, the buildings on campus are average and there are some that are very nice

Basic Functions – The computers that are on campus, use old programing mostly, like Windows XP

People always say parking is aweful, but there are spots you just have to park a little farther out. Its not as bad as everyone makes it out to be.

There Are Many Greeks on Campus – There are many Greeks at UNC Charlotte, but they do not seem to cause any problems. People get involved in greek life to meet new people and go to parties.

Guys & Girls:
Everyone Looks Nice – There is a variety of people that attend Charlotte. Every type of person should find someone to hang out with. People do not feel the need to dress nice when they go to class.

Health & Safety:
Safe Campus but Still Need to Be Alert – UNCC is a pretty safe place but you still have to pay attention and be alert. Crime happens everywhere and UNCC is no expection, however using caution when out late is a must!

Place around campus like Chick-fil-a or Bojangles are good, but close at night. Dinner in the dinning halls are not well liked. The food is never very hot and there is not a variety of options to choose from.

Student Union Has TONS to Offer – The Student Union is a great addition to our campus. They have a little bit of everything there including a professional hair salon, movies, games, and tons of different things to eat. Its a great enviroment!

Lots of Place but Somewhat Pricey – There are tons of places to choose from but the prices are not that cheap. They do stay around the same price and they are nice.

GO NINERS! School spirit is lacking, which I believe will change with the new football team.

The Queen City – There are some places with student discounts, however they do not advertise it, you have to ask about it. There are a variety of the types of food, and with UNC Charlotte being so close to downtown Charlotte, there is always something new to "check out".

Dining on Campus – I do not eat on campus a lot because I live off campus. However, when I do have to grab lunch, most of the eating facilities are enjoyable. There are some that, because they aren't used as much anymore, are not desireable places to go. However, my overall experiace with dining on campus has been positive.

UNCC Computing Fun – There are numerous areas on campus that hold computers for use including Mac PC and linux. The first few days of class the computers are extremely slow and as well during finals. They offer numerous and up to date programs to help students learn. The engineering students have their own computer room that only they can use. The library holds a printing office that is capable of all printing needs and the the computers around campus charge $0.08 a page. Every classroom has wireless capabilities and connection is almost accessible on campus. The parks and sports areas are the exceptions.

Very Pleasant – You will experience all 4 seasons at Charlotte, but there are very few cold and rainy days. It is hot at the beginning of the school year, but not unbearable. Likewise, it gets cold in the winter, but it's not bad. Expect snow once or twice.

Football in 2013! Charlotte has excelent soccer, baseball, and track and field teams; understandably, these aren't the big time sports. The basketball team has had a lot of success in the past but has gone through a recent slump. The basketball facilities, however, are near superb, and seeing a game in Halton when it's packed is honestly as good, if not better than any game I've ever seen at an ACC school. I suggest all students to sit in section F104 to have a true game experience, the students there - Niner Nation Gold - are hilarious at taunting the other team, coming up with chants, and overall having a good time. The school does seriously lack from not having a football team, but that will be resolved in 2013!

Guys & Girls:
Girls Are Ok – Lots of decent looking women, few hotties, few pigs or wildabeasts.

Campus housing is a varied experience. The suites are very nice, I recommend living there if you can. The on campus apartments are very convenient. The high rises aren't very pretty, they are old, the elevators often break down, but they are kept clean and there is good student interaction.

Health & Safety:
A moderate amount of crime took place during my school years (2005-2010). Most of the crime was robbery. It was safe enough to walk around campus at night. I even ran around campus at night. Just be sure to lock your car and don't leave your textbooks lying around.

There are few places to park on campus, and this affects me greatly as I am a commuter student. I have to arrive to class an hour early to assure that I get a spot remotely close to my class, and it still takes a 15 minute walk. All of the parking options are on the very edge of campus, where as the classes are towards the middle. Granted the campus is beautiful to walk through, but I didn't pay $365 to still have a 15 minute walk to class.

In very few academic buildings does UNCC offer Wi-Fi to it's students. All of my classes now require internet access and yet I do not have access to their online resources during class. Few buildings on campus offer Wi-Fi where I find it peaceful to study. Even the dining buildings lack Wi-Fi, and considering I am a commuter student and I eat lunch on campus, it would be nice to be able to do my online homework while I'm eating in between classes.

I'm a transfer student who transferred after my freshman year. I went to a smaller school in the mountains of North Carolina and it just was not for me. I can say that I love the school I go to now and that I'm proud to be a 49er. It's a very nice and clean campus with a lot of construction going on regularly to make the school even nicer. Their working on a football team I'll never see as a student, but it'll be a nice touch for homecoming. As a guy, the demographics are perfect for me and in general people take school a lot more seriously than the average institution. The atmosphere has been great for me educationally and I'll definitely be proud to hang my UNCC degree on my wall any day.

About Average but the Police Can Be a Nuissance – I never lived on campus at UNCC, but it seems like any other school. There are the usual rules against underage drinking, but their is more of a focus put on responsibility, which is probably more useful and more important. The local police can be really annoying and probably aggravate problems more than they solve them. Don't me wrong, there are a few who do their jobs well and do not take themselves too seriously, but there are a few who do.

Very Much a College Area Prices Are High – Charlotte is a very diverse area. The University of North Carolina at Charlotte is located near to the Art district (North Davidson) and isn't too far from the other great parts of Charlotte. The highways make it pretty easy to get anywhere in Charlotte with ease (except traffic). The local establishments are pretty friendly with their college patrons and cater pretty well to their needs.

Child Development – Here at UNCC, the education program is great!!!! The professors and advisors are very hands-on with the students and they pay close attention to all the students to help them. The education program has a learning community where all the students that want to be teachers meet once a week and discuss topics that have to do with teaching. The professors bring in the advisors, directors and chairpersons of the education department and have them all talk to us. Also the alumni program is great, where students can come back and get help finding careers after graduating.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
