      A Nice Place to Study!
      It's a really nice place to study. The weather was good, the housing was good and fewer students from Asia than I expected. I also wanted to find a school that was somewhat urban and somewhat rural. It was a perfect place for me. It is difficult however to get around without a car. It takes about 30 min to go to supermarket by bus. You can have meals on campus, but there aren't many restaurants or stores around campus. However, it's a really good place to study. The people and the weather are perfect. I was living on-campus, and I prefer living on-campus. It's much cheaper to live off-campus, but it's easier to experience campus life on-campus.

      영어권 환경.
      아마 큰도시의 학교들은 한국인이나 한인타운때문에 생활에도 학교에서도 한국어를 많이사용할겁니다. 이곳 UNCC은 한국인이 거의없습니다. 그리고 시골이라 한인도 많이 없습니다. 영어를 배우는 환경이기엔 정말 좋은 곳인것 같습니다. 레벨도 1~7까지 처음에 시험을 치룬후에 자기에 맞는 클래스도 들어가게 됩니다. 교수진과 사무직에서 도움을 주시는분들도 정말 가족처럼 친절하게 잘 대해줍니다. 교육내용도 따분하지않고 대외적활동도 하며 방과후에는 미국친구들을 많이 사귈수있도록 홀을빌려 커피타임도 갖습니다. 한국인 대부분은 소극적이고 미국인들은 굉장히 적극적이라 먼저 다가와 친해질수도 있습니다.

      UNCC 에서 느낀점
      제가 공부를 UNCC에서 한 것은 2006년 1월부터 여름학기까지 였습니다. 낯설은 이국에 와서 공부를 한다는 것이 쉽지 않았는데 가르치는 선생님과 스텝들이 친철하게 대하여 주었습니다. 각 파트 선생님들은 나름대로 파트별로 체계적으로 가르쳐 주셨고 많은 도움을 누릴 수 있었습니다. 그리고 학교 시설도 이용할 수 있어서 너무 좋았습니다. 특히 행정을 맡으신 분이 너무 친절하게 대하여 주셔서
      많은 도움이 되었습니다.

      학교수업, 기숙사, 방과후 활동, 주변환경 등 전반적인 만족도는 매우 높습니다. 수업 레벨이 여러단계로 구성되어 있어 비슷한 수준의 classmate와 공부할 수 있으며 선생님들의 경험또한 풍부하셔서 부족한 부분을 잘아십니다. 학교 기숙사를 이용할 경우 미국친구들을 만날 기회가 많이 있어 클럽활동 등을 통해 자연스레 많은 native들을 사귈 수 있습니다. 학교 환경은 캠퍼스가 아름답고 안전하다고 생각합니다.
