Originally opened as a night school in Charlotte Central High School, the University of North Carolina at Charlotte has grown to become a 4-year public research institution and campus of the UNC system. UNC Charlotte is home to seven colleges conferring undergraduate degrees. To provide a break from the classroom, the UNC Charlotte campus hosts 10 acres of outdoor gardens as well as a tropical plant courtyard. Additionally, the university houses the Motorsports and Automotive Research Center, which offers assistance to local race car teams.
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.

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.
