| I don't know what others are saying, but here's my experience with this school. Yeah the school is pretty much out there to get your money. For example they raise the tuition and parking permits just to build a new deck and a football team(totally uncalled for). The parking permits are purchase to allow students to park any day the university is open, however during special events you are not allowed to park in some areas, resulting lack of space, yet you still pay full price for permit. The good side of this school is that the library is pretty good. Also as you move up to your major courses the professor tends to be very knowledgeable, but that means that the grade are harder to earn, but they will be understanding and will try to help you if you have difficulties. |

| UNCC is absolutely awful. Their Science department is literally the worst I have ever seen. I've seen people's tests at USC, Chapel Hill, and other RESPECTED universities, and none of their tests are as ridiculous as UNCC's. Their Chemistry and Biology departments are absolutely infuriating. The way they teach, the way they grade, and even the way they speak. These professors are clowns. The truth is, at UNCC, you're going to have to bust your @$$ to get A's and B's like me, but for what? At nearly ANY other University around this area, you don't have to try half as hard, you get better grades, and you get a degree from an actually respectable university. It's stupid and unfair. I was forced to go to UNCC and I will do my absolute best to transfer. DO NOT come to UNCC if you are looking to go to Medical/Dental/Veterinary school. They are absolutely terrible when it comes to science. I've had good grades all my life. At UNCC, the teachers pretend like they want to help you, but in reality, they do not care at all. You are just another student passing through. The Biology teachers all ask outlandish questions on their tests, and just about everyone will make a D or a C on their tests. They act like they are doing this to help you, but how does that help anyone? They kill your GPA, which makes you look awful especially since UNCC is considered #197 in rankings on U.S college rankings. (After UNCC everything has a "rank not published" so it's safe to say UNCC is near last here.)|
Sciences here at UNCC ARE NOT GOOD. If you are not coming here for Science classes, then this place will be a little bit better for you (Just a little)
On the social side of things...This place is a commuter school, plain and simple. There is no sense of identity to be found in the UNCC "community". People dread coming here, and it's obvious. They come here, then they try their best to get out and go home. I've visited many other Colleges, and not a single one of them felt anything like UNCC. People over here are confrontational, rude, and obviously want to be left alone. I have enough friends here, but don't expect to bump into anyone nice here after the first week...oh and if you do? They are probably commuters anyway. Everyone goes home over the weekend, because really there isn't anything to do here. The frats here are a joke. It's absolutely hilarious watching these kids walk around campus. Literally anyone can join, which isn't exactly a bad thing, but somehow they managed to make it a bad thing.. You have literally every type of failure joining these frats, and these kids do nothing but ruin everyone else's day. Sorority girls are....odd. There's literally only one sorority that has some normal people in it. The rest are full of rednecks who just love the confederate flag. UNCC has too many hypocrites and Bible loving kids walking around this place. This would be easy to ignore, if basically everything else didn't suck.
Nothing to do on campus..at all. Want to go to a party? Go to a club instead. Parties here are hilariously bad. The gym here is extremely small, and far away from literally every single residence hall on campus.My advice? Find another university. This was my last choice, and I was forced to go here for a reason (a bad one at that).

| I had an awesome experience at UNC Charlotte. I lived on campus all four years and enjoyed every minute of it. Comparing the faculty at UNC Charlotte with those at my graduate school (Appalachian State), UNC Charlotte professors were generally more demanding academically, professional and tended to be more accomplished from a research/publication perspective which is likely indicative of the research focus of the university. I always felt safe while on campus and never encountered an issues. Some parts of Charlotte can be sketchy but compared to peer cities Charlotte tends to rank pretty well. The campus continues to grow significantly with new dorms, a brand new student union, classrooms not to mention a new football program. This school draws students from all over the US/world making the student population diverse which is a positive. The city itself has access to professional sports, lots of restaurants, shopping, movie theaters, bars, international airport. I would highly recommend at least checking this campus out, especially if you live in NC. Compared to other schools UNC-Charlotte was extremely affordable. Tuition is the second lowest plus housing in Charlotte was much cheaper and generally nicer than the other schools I considered. |
