An exceptional university starts with an incredible city. That's why Charlotte (also known as "The Queen City") is a natural extension of the Queens campus, filled with invaluable experiences and real-life learning opportunities.
Our corner of Charlotte is Myers Park - a beautiful, historic neighborhood known for its stately homes and safe, friendly community. Our city is the second largest financial center in the United States. CNNMoney.com ranked Charlotte eighth among its "Best Places to Live and Launch." And Self Magazine named it one of "Five Cities with Big Outdoor Appeal," citing Charlotte's public art walking tour, recreation areas and natural resources.
One of the many great things about studying in Charlotte is that there are so many wonderful things to do right in and near the city. Weekend road trips bring you to sandy beaches, breath-taking hikes and lively, fun cities. Check out the Charlotte Observer's Carolina Travel Guide.
