First I am SO sorry that I am posting this thread, but I've done extensive searches in the NC, Charlotte, and SC forums trying to find the thread that started within the past week or so about Charlotte-area universities and colleges. It was the troll post from someone stating "Why is Charlotte popular when there are no schools?"

Someone in that thread posted a NICE LONG LIST of all colleges/universities in the surrounding Charlotte Metro area, and I was hoping to get that list.

Can't find the thread ANYWHERE - and trust me - I've looked!

HELP!! Did it get deleted or something?
