There are all kinds of classes and class sizes on campus. There are some truly great and passionate professors and there are some that are not as liked.

UNC Charlotte is a great school that is growing each and every year and is full of opportunity. It may not be the "perfect" university, but there really is no such thing. The quality of education and experience is very much worth the price of tuition, which is very affordable compared to other similar schools.
