North Carolina: Charlotte, University of
College review by Lisa Bleich
Large somewhat select state university depending on the major. The school itself is pretty and located right in Charlotte. One-third of the students live on campus, one-third commute, and one-third live within 2 miles of the campus. It’s strongest and most select programs are architecture, nursing and business. Students must be admitted into architecture as a freshman. Business students can declare their major later and nursing education students must apply to upper level courses. 200 nursing students with 50 slots open per semester. Only accept 64 students into their architecture program out of 400 applications. Must interview and show a creative portfolio. North Carolina State is a more select university for architecture. Diverse student body.
