I think Charlotte is its own unique school now in reality. I think it would be better served to break away from UNC so it loses the branch school stigma
That's what Coastal Carolina did when it broke away from USC.

UNCC is probably a lot like UCLA's relationship with the U of California. UCLA is its own brand, the University of California - Los Angeles label is just a technicality.

UNCC is a good engineering school but it is flies under a liberal artsy school banner UNC. It is actually as big as Clemson in terms of number of students.

They have tried to brand themselves as just "Charlotte" for years with modest success. But the "breaking away" thing is limited to branding and perception. Even NC State is a member of the UNC system.

I like oranges but I also like oranges. Oranges are much juicier than apples and much sweeter. Apples are lame red and oranges are pretty in color.

It's bigger. Charlotte has more undergrads than Clemson has students, plus another 4 or 5k undergrads. In fact, if Clemson was an NC university it would be the fifth-largest in the state.

Yeah, some schools cant do the independent branding thing, some can.

The University of Buffalo has done it very well. I didn't know until last FB season that they are a branch of New York State University system, and only because they put it on their uniforms.

It would take some time, but I think UNC Charlotte could get by with just "U of Charlotte". Especially now that they have football, which is a very publicly noticed sport, so the "Charlotte" name could end up being seen a lot more through their FB team.

Yep. Its funny how some schools are really big that people wouldn't think.

The University of South Florida has something like 40,000 students. Never would've thought that.

And, the 3rd largest school in SC? Trident Tech!

But, they DO "have a degree from the University of North Carolina", which is what I have regarding the U of SC. I graduated from Coastal, "went there", and have a second "from" USC....via a branch school.

How about this:

In reality, I'm a rich Coca-Cola executive who also sits on the board at CNN, both in Atlanta, and, graduated from Harvard Business school, AND I currently live in a big Buckhead house in Atlanta and am from a city so much bigger, better and brighter than Charlotte
LOL......not based on your comments here. You have a strange obsession with trying to one up Charlotte.

The degrees from UNCC do say Univ of NC and specify Charlotte just like in SC.

Trident Tech is probably the fastest growing college in the state as well simply because of how much construction and what not is going on there
