Definitely a college education

Jul 29 2014Finance
Definitely a college education is beneficial, but please encourage students to gain work experience while pursing their degree so that their resume will be balanced with education and experience.

All of the negative people on this site

All of the negative people on this site are crazy! This school was amazing and each university experience is what you make it. I enjoyed the social life, the great city, and great programs of study. I have been out of school for a month and landed an amazing job within weeks of graduation. This school is not only beautiful but it is also very reputable as far as academia. I gained countless interviews prior to and after graduation. I give the University of North Carolina at Charlotte an A+. I would for sure come back here and do it all over again! Go Niners!!

Pros

Oct 15 2009Finance
Pros
- Very inexpensive education compared to other public state schools in the NC system.
- University is expanding very quickly (football team coming soon, several new academic buildings, and new research buildings)

- Good education for business majors, nursing majors, and architecture
- Downtown Charlotte is 20 minutes away
- BOA and Wachovia headquartered in Charlotte
- Clean and pretty campus
Cons
- Very, very, very close minded students and faculty in all departments
- Anybody can apply and get in because the university only wants there money
- Too many cliques (worse than high school)
- No social life on campus
- No social life off campus
- No school spirit
- High crime around university area
- Typical commuter/suitcase college

Overall, I would not recommend anyone come to this school unless they have no other choice. Your education here will be valuable but you will miss out on the whole "college experience" because it seems like high school all over again. The students are superficial, very materialistic, and stuck-up, though, it's not surprising because it's a big city college. I should have transferred out to NC State or UNC when I had the chance. I stayed here b/c of financial reasons but going to UNC would have been a much better decision even it resulted in thousands of dollars of debt.
