Heard that they had Great Psychology and Education Major Programs here at UNC Charlotte. But my Aunt and Mom did not like the Health Administration Programs. But some students and proffesors are a little racist by saying the n word. But without that UNC Charlotte is a beautiful modern good school.

The longer I’ve been out of school the more I regret my time at UNC Charlotte.Often people regret going to college because they accumulated a lot of debt and/or picked a major without a clear career path. Neither is the case for me. I had a STEM major and made decent grades (>3.5 GPA) and graduated with no debt.My dissatisfaction is purely with the quality of the university and the education, which is piss poor. As far as I’m concerned they might as well be running a scam. 18 year old kids, who don’t know better and don’t have the context to evaluate the quality of their education, come to university because conventional wisdom tells them that they can acquire skills that will make them valuable and effective in a career. I’m sure the educators at UNCC are well aware of this. However, they have no interest in teaching the students skills, or in clarifying to the students that they won’t be learning anything useful. They are content to allow kids to hold those misconceptions so that they will continue to enroll and fork over large sums of money. This is unethical. It wasn’t until I was ~3/4ths of the way through my degree that I came to understand enough about what I was studying to realize that the so-called “education” I was paying for was worthless. At this point I figured I was better off finishing and getting out, which is what I did.The fact is UNCC hands out grades in exchange for money. If you pay, show up, and turn in anything at all when your assignments are due you will receive the grades. The diploma is just a participation trophy, if not a receipt. It’s no indication of any knowledge, skills, or hard work. If you want to do nothing, learn nothing, and just be handed a degree then this is the school for you.A note to the professors: you need to educate your students. You need to teach them the sort of things they come to school believing they will learn. If you have no plan to do that, you need to communicate that to students early, before enrollment if possible. It’s true that there are some things you have to learn on the job, but in technology fields learning hard skills outside of the industry is laughably easy. If you have a computer you can get started. Teach your students how to do things. Evaluate them on their ability and grade them accordingly. Don’t create curricula based on material that’s worthless outside the classroom. Don’t just hand out grades to anyone who pays you.

I moved here from Tampa, knowing very well I could have gone to USF but the degree requirements for my major(Chemistry) seemed more appealing since it required more classes that would benefit me in the long run. BIG MISTAKE! Although, the math program is amazing since I have learned so much in my math classes and the teachers do a very good job teaching their students with respect and providing tests with realistic expectations. The science program for physics and chemistry need a lot of improvement. Starting with gen chem, I had a terrible semester with an adjunct faculty that did nothing but insult us in class and treat us all as if we were children. she never came to class prepared and taught on a whim. when a student asked a question she either laughed at them for not knowing the answer or became frazzled since she couldn't explain the answer and got angry with us. I passed luckily but my class mate had to take this class 3 times and still only received a C. There are other great professors but they teach lower level courses and they obviously need to freshen up their department. the building is outdated and needs a lot of work. the equipment in lab is always broken and useless so when we are graded on the purity of our product it is hard to pass with an acceptable grade. I love my advisor but my friends have had poor advisors so, again, I think the department just needs more youthful faculty members that can better respect and connect with the students . NOW, the BIGGEST disappointment is the financial office. this schools fees cost more than our tuition! AND my tuition is an estimate looking at my credits accumulated rather than knowing what each credit costs therefore I do not know how my funds are dispersed. for example, I dropped one class and was billed $700 I asked for a statement on the dispersion of my funds they only provided the students fees which were all individually shown yet my credits per class were not. they just showed my tuition all together so I do not know exactly the cost of the class nor do I know how it was paid. this semester I was refunded $39 for my FAFSA but then later billed $1..yes, $1 without an explanation. I had to email the school and they explained that it was a convenience fee,..funny I did not have that the last two semesters I was there. this school needs to reassess their priorities. I will not be getting my masters here since there are hardly any resources for the science majors due to poorly funded labs. you get what you pay for I guess.

I’m sitting in Cameron Hall co-facilitating a class that helps teachers think more about the teaching of writing and what it means to be a writer themselves. The room I’m in is very small...which is perfect for the group that I am with. The class I’m co-facilitating is meant to be intimate (quaint, special) and this room really helps project that. One reason I have not rated the room higher than 3 stars is that the air conditioning is extremely cool...which you would think...on a hot summer day like today would be welcome. This just in...there is such a thing as being too cold.
