What Students Are Saying

3.88 Average Rating
It is a great school that has something for everyone. The teachers make a point to be available as often as possible and to learn the students names in their classes (even if they are large classes). The campus is beautiful and makes you feel at home.
Katherine from Winston-Salem, NC
UNC Charlotte has a great atmosphere for students who want to achieve great academic progress in their field of study. I loved the campus as soon as I arrived and met plenty of new friends. The professors are also fun to be around they teach you the right information and always are prepared when you have any questions that you want to ask. All in all UNC Charlotte is a really great institution to attend.
