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.

This school is over-hyped as the "Biggest bang

Jul 11 2014Unknown
This school is over-hyped as the "Biggest bang for your buck" when (at best) it is a mediocre school. Sure, a beautiful campus, but the curriculum for engineering students s*cks. I double majored in engineering and English, and I found that BOTH departments stink.

I'm an out-of state student. There is NOTHING to do on campus on weekends or after class. You will need an automobile to escape the boredom of campus life. If you walk to the store, you risk the possibility of being mugged and/or shot. Rapes in the women's dormitories are common. Assaults and robberies on-campus are common. Automobile break-ins on campus are so common that the campus police no longer report them. If you want a report of campus crimes, you can't go online to get this info. You must request it from campus police. How stupid is that?This school is relatively cheap. Remember: you get what you pay for. Pass on this dung pile. I will be outta here in September.

I'm an in-state student from Wilmington

Aug 01 2014Other
I'm an in-state student from Wilmington. There is no reason for any in-state student to attend UNCC unless you have to have new buildings and a pretty campus or if you're a computer science major or an engineering major. I lived on campus, and I can say that campus life at UNCC sux. There is very little to do. It's a suitcase commuter college. Worse, the campus is in a high crime area. You really need an automobile in order to go anywhere because there's not much to do near campus.

Girls get raped in the UNCC dormitories. Off-campus choices aren't much better. You might find yourself sharing an apartment with somebody you really don't want to be around.

The students? Not inspiring. UNCC is a second choice for a lot of students, and I think it's probably a third or fourth choice for most of the teachers.

I'm going to UNC Wilmington in the Fall of 2014 and I'll live on campus where there's actual campus life and NO CRIME. The beach is nearby, and there's lots more to do there.
