University of North Carolina Charlotte is definitely a site to see, built back in 1946 the university has definitely come along way. With 28,000 students enrolled at the University it is definitely on the come up. As we toured the facility we learned a lot about UNCC as a whole, and I must say it was a very interesting tour seeing how the athletics is a part of C-USA. UNCC has number of outdoor and indoor recreation facilities. The Belk Gym was very and spacious building here was the home of their Kinesiology building in here they also have had a work out center, a cycling center, a group fitness center, and many more recreational activities. They have about 2900 students who come to the Belk Gym and actually take advantage of the facility. On top of that these students have to pay student fees of about $1.00 to use the facility. UNCC is always looking for innovative ways to continue to update the facility. In fact, in UNCC plans on opening up their newest recreational center by 2019. The newest rec facility will include an indoor outdoor pool, along with outside volleyball, and basketball court. The new rec facility will definitely be loved by their students; in fact, it is even a great promotional tactic for the University itself. We were also able to tour other facilities, such as their arena and the football facility, as well, as track and field, and the softball, and soccer field. The brand new football facility was probably one of my favorite parts of the tour, because the facility is still fairly new. UNCC team came to the university about 4 years ago, and it is something that the students demanded. Since the football team has come to UNCC the amount of student fees to increase, but since tuition is roughly about 4 to 6,000 dollars a semester it is not too bad. UNCC is definitely on the up rise, with a lot of opportunities to grow in sports. The experience was nice at UNCC and there was definitely a lot to learn.
