Why UNC Charlotte?

The short answer UNC Charlotte just felt right! The beauty of the campus is warm and welcoming, but the student body, staff, and faculty are like no other. Niner Nation felt like the perfect place to call home for this chapter of life. 

Describe a favorite activity or organization and why you like it.

Not In My City Project would by far be my favorite student org! NIMCP is an organization on campus that is passionate about raising awareness about human trafficking. I have been a part of this team since my sophomore year and have enjoyed the opportunity to advocate for victims of trafficking. NIMCP takes advantage of the unique opportunity of educating and equipping students with information to combat and prevent trafficking.

Describe a favorite class and why you like it. 

If I had to pick just one class, my favorite would be Jesus with Dr. Tabor. Not only is Dr. Tabor a renowned scholar in his field, but with years of experience, he makes learning the material personable, while still challenging students to go deeper. His Jesus course studies the historical evidence for a man named Jesus, while also examining textual evidence for what religion has made of the figure of Jesus.
