  • The suite style living is better than highrises because the highrises are constantly loud and have problems almost every night. The suite style also allows you to make closer friends…

    Lot of dining options. The campus is located in a nice area with fast food and dining options. Also grocery shopping.

    UNCC offers cafeteria food typical of many college campuses--not the best. However, the wide variety of restaurants on and around campus (as well as in Charlotte itself) allows students to eat well regardless of their budget. Many students choose to cook for themselves on a regular basis, especially if they live off campus.

    There are three different dining halls and tons of fast foot choices such as Wendy's, Subway, Einstein Bagel Bros, Bojangles, Chick-fil-a, Salsaritas etc. Finding food is definitely not a problem here.

    I ate well at UNCC. There are 5 or 6 dining areas on campus I believe, all of which serve quality food. Besides the official dining halls, there are a wide variety of third party restaurants on campus like Wendy's, Chick-fil-a, Salsarita's, Subway, and Bojangles. There is a wide variety of cultural food options also, like Japanese or Middle Eastern. You won't go hungry on campus. There are also plenty of options for the all important coffee to help us grind through the day.

    UNCC has several restaurants to eat from including everyones favorite fast food chains. The only drawback is that healthy options are limited but not impossible to find. Crown Commons uses meal swipes and is an all you can eat buffet for those who are really hungry.

    Crown (the main cafe) can be really good some days, and slacking on others. It has a good variety of food though, including home-cooked meals and international meals. There is a restaurant-style eatery called Bistro 49 that has steak and fancy foods. UNCC also has commercialized restaurants such as Chic-fil-a, Wendy's and Salsaritas, which are pretty good. They just built a new dining hall in South Village, and its supposed to have a Denny's-styled restaurant open 24/7. I heard that's supposed to be good!

    I usually go home and eat but the food on campus is pretty good also. I definitely eat there if I'm not at home :)

    Though I am not personally affiliated with the Greek system, I know many people who feel fulfilled by their brotherly/sisterly connections at UNCC. Fraternities and sororities offer students the opportunity to connect with their peers, as do many of the other extracurricular organizations on campus.

    I am not part of Greek Life, but from all the tables and signs set up, there are plenty of options for joining one of these communities.

    There are also a lot of options to choose from if you decide to go greek. Most Greeks are friendly and help out when they can. People are dedicated to their greeks and you can easily tell.

    I have begun to explore the sororities on campus and they seem like a really good option. I am continuing to look into this.
