I attended UNCC over 20 years ago, andPolitical Science
I attended UNCC over 20 years ago, and when I attended it was a good school.I came from New York and was blown away by the charm and manners of the students and professors.I found the students to be very polite. The quality of the education was good. Generally, it was a positive experience even though I only stayed 1 year-- because of money problems.

Negatives I've seen after my first year here:AverageUndecided
Negatives I've seen after my first year here: too many students go "home" for weekends, so things get a little too quiet sometimes on Saturdays(Can't figure out why they'd want to go home so often! I thought we went "away" to college!) Things would be more lively if everyone stuck around! There are some students with a lot of school spirit, but most are kinda neutral. Also, I think the school is growing too quickly. They should slow admissions down and be more selective. There are really bright students here, but there are too many mediocre ones (not bad students, but... the school has enough to offer that I think they should "raise the bar", making it more competitive school.

I've been really surprised by the quality ofBrightHistory/Histories (art history/etc.)
I've been really surprised by the quality of education here - This wasn't my first choice school 2 years ago, but after talking with some friends that are going to "name schools" in state, I think I'm having a better undergrad experience. I've had hardly any TA's, the prof's are good (especially Dr. Lansen - History - incredible guy!) I haven't felt that I was trying to be "weeded out", like some of my friends in other schools, but you are challenged in a manageable way. A lot of new buildings are going up around campus - Easy campus to walk around (except for some hills) - Wish there was a bit more school spirit, but it seems to be growing. Probably would be more spirit if we had a football team, but our basketball team is good. All in all, I'm glad I'm going here. Looking back, I wish I had applied for the Honors Program - Probably coulda gotten in, and they get the best pick of profs and class times!
