I enjoyed my time at UNC Charlotte. The faculty in the History department are knowledgeable, friendly, and go out of their way to assist students. The campus culture is decent, but school spirit is still growing. The campus is safe and it is easy to access uptown Charlotte and a number of local points of interest from campus.

Sharing personal experience of a year at UNCC.

Amazing campus with good off campus living options. Departments encourage interdisciplinary studies. Good on campus jobs but due to number of students high competition. Some courses are not as relevant as their names but it depends on personal choices. Different departments have different rules and regulations which makes things a bit difficult sometimes.
