Queens University of Charlotte Reviews
Being in the biggest city in North Carolina while attending a small private school, I was able to grow as a young adult both mentally and academically. My advisors and professors helped make sure I could pursue a dual degree and partake in study abroad. My classes were challenging but rewarding. I was free from the High School spirit of competition with my peers, and instead was able to organize and lead study groups. Being at a primarily white institution, I was often one of the few minority students in my classes. However, the school made efforts to support diversity and encouraged students to partake in organizations such as the Latin American Student Association. I was also able to become Vice President of the Biology Honor Society (Tri-Beta) and organize events for my peers such as the traditional haunted house, speakers on campus, and networking events. As I look forward to starting graduate school, I know my Queens family and education have prepared me for the future.
My school was a great fit for my personality and my interests and I enjoyed college thoroughly. However, in retrospect, I would have gone to a more inexpensive college if I had the chance again, just because of how expensive my school was compared to the job outlook in my field.
I would choose the same degree because college is supposed to be for furthering your mind and your expertise. I learned to read at 3 years old and literature and writing were always my true loves.
Go to college because you want to be the best at what you love, but understand that what you love may not pay the bills.
