UNCC is literally home for me. People can say all they want about it being a "commuter" school, but there are thousands of students that live on campus. Not only that, but the professors (at least in my department) are fantastic. Absolutely amazing. They're intelligent, passionate, and actually want you to succeed. Greek life is growing as well, and being apart of UNCC's greek life has been a very rewarding experience for me. UNCC continues to grow bigger and better every year. Although our sport teams aren't the best, they're new and getting better. Although UNCC doesn't have a whole lot of tradition, WE are the students that get to start the traditions that will be marked as legends on this campus. Speaking of the campus, it's beautifully built. Some of the buildings can be frustrating when you can't find your class, but the campus is definitely up to par on it's looks. All the brick MATCHES!
Review Your College
Charlotte professors are wonderful, but each has their own way of teaching. From my experience so far all of my teacher are approachable and friendly. Some classes are very interactive, and others are chill. Some teacher will tell you exactly what to write down or even give you the notes, while others just straight lecture . For general ed classes ( lbst, maths,basic mandatory classes) have large classrooms. But the more you get into your major classes/pre-requisites, your classes get significantly smaller . They honestly have classes on almost anything you could imagine, and some you would never think of!
UNCC has a nice campus; clean with fun facilities (theater, pool, sports), interesting classes, student activities and clubs. Reasonable tuition, and if you look and plan, you can get the classes you need with good professors and reasonable class sizes (25-40).

UNCC parking is expensive and limited, freshman dorms are old, meal plans are bad, advising is frustrating (especially for transfers and those with undeclared major), and course/major requirements are annoying. But, it's rare for public universities to not have these problems.

Charlotte is a big city with things to do (indoor skydive and bars, night clubs and malls further out), but it isn't a very safe city. Housing is expensive, and on campus housing is three times as expensive.
