Attending UNC Charlotte was one of the best decisions of my life! I was raised in Charlotte but decided to stay because of the amazing professional opportunities available. Businesses recruit directly from UNCC giving students a great advantage. Oh, not to mention the campus is BEAUTIFUL! Professors are also extremely knowledgeable and serve as great mentors.

I have truly enjoyed my time at UNCC. The campus and facilities are top notch and the University is constantly expanding with the addition of new buildings/facilities. The faculty and staff have been extremely helpful in making sure I am on track and taking the right classes to meet my degree requirements. With Division 1 Baseball, Football, Basketball, and Soccer, as well as a plethora of intramural sports and special interest clubs, there is always something to do on campus. I highly recommend that you consider the University of North Carolina at Charlotte!
I am currently a sophomore here at UNCC with a Communications-PR major and a minor in French. I can say I absolutely love it here at UNCC. This is coming from someone who has no bias towards the school, as I am here by choice. I enjoy the fast-paced environment that Charlotte in general provides, and being a student at UNCC allows me to keep up. As all things, there are flaws, but I can say in consideration that I've stayed at other institutions and had Charlotte as my last choice, UNCC make the most sense for anyone wanting to get out of a small town mentality looking to get a good education from a well rounded, VERY diverse institution! Best choice I've made, probably ever!
