UNC Charlotte Among 'Best for Vets'
UNC Charlotte is one of the 125 four-year institutions to make the Military Times "Best for Vets: Colleges 2016" rankings.
An annual survey in its six year, the Military Times rankings provide the most comprehensive school-by-school assessment of veteran and military student services and rates of academic achievement.
David Vacchi, associate director for veteran student services, said being ranked by Military Times is "an important first-time achievement for UNC Charlotte as we are finally being recognized for the great work the University is doing for veterans every day. There are areas in which we can improve as a campus and the Veterans Services Office will be working diligently to make the campus even more welcoming for veterans."

Dance Marathon Continues Tradition of Support
For the third consecutive year, UNC Charlotte students danced the night away to raise funds for the Levine Children’s Hospital.
The 12-hour Charlotte Dance Marathon, held Nov. 7 - 8, generated $49,049.73 in donations for the hospital. A student-led initiative, Charlotte Dance Marathon is a legacy project of the Levine Scholars Program. It was created in 2013 under the name 49er Dance Mine. The event featured a variety of activities, dancing and other entertainment. The marathon is the finale to a sustained fundraising effort involving a number of student organizations.
Organizers noted this third annual event was an effort to continue a tradition of community engagement in which University students raise funds for and generate awareness of the Levine Children’s Hospital.
