University of North Carolina
A review of University of North Carolina
I loved the location and how well rounded the college was in all programs. I felt the college was the perfect size for me and was a really great price, unlike many other institutions. The price for this university compared to others from my area in Virginia and others in North Carolina, this one was the best.
I do not mind it and I like structure and the way in which my professor's set up their classes. The course curriculum is a great guide to the semester and what to expect from a certain class. I enjoy the curriculum for my major and feel it has helped me develop skills that will be beneficial in the workforce.
SAT, ACT were both taken in high school and I took both of them twice to get better scores in my senior year before I sent off my applications. I increased my scores on both after retaking them but it wasn't what I wanted.
Exams in the history department are open-ended writing questions which include explanation and evidence as well as analysis of the information read. There is a lot that goes into exams because they are writing intensive which is important in the major and a major part of the curriculum.
The faculty at my college are great and have degrees from great colleges while being really invested in their jobs. All my professors have done research in their discipline and are very well-versed in the topics they teach.
This is really vague but I am assuming it is for how the school charges me tuition and fees. There is a transportation charge on top of the other charges because there is a campus-wide bus that takes students to and from different parts of the campus is huge. The parking pass fee is separate from the transportation fee.
I live off-campus but not in off-campus housing. I live close to the school but not in any student housing. The cost of a dorm was not in my budget but the accommodations for students are nice and vary in price.
There is the hire-a-niner portal which alumni and current students can use to apply for jobs which are a cool way to seek employment. There are many paid internships that could turn into job offers and those opportunities are very wide and they offer many internships throughout the semesters.
No, all the internships are from third parties that have to be applied to, then interviewed to receive it. There are many internships but with such a large university I feel they go so quickly but there are internships for specific majors which is nice to have.
There are many events going on at my university from cultural events presented by the school to step shows presented by the sororities and fraternities. There are many events from educational to fun events for students in the student union that give out t-shirts and food.
I use financial aid provided by the federal Pell grant and then a grant was given to me by the school which is based on need. I had one outside scholarship that I have applied and no other scholarships or grants to pay for school which is mostly paid for thanks to UNC Charlotte.
Monthly Expense : $500 - $1500
