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!
It's a great school for the price you pay. The tuition itself is great! But they get you by adding in a lot of extra random fees. If you can afford it I suggest living off campus. But you get a lot of really good benefits for going here. Tutoring is great, there is always an event going on, so many clubs to join, and activities to do. They do a great job with diversity and equal treatment. All for a small tuition price. What makes it expensive is living on campus and getting a meal plan, and parking. Also, there is a huge issue with parking, but what school doesn't? Just get there early or park at one of the huge parking decks and walk a little further. I am glad I transferred here, I feel like my money is being used for me and not the actual school unlike my old school Wingate University.
