About BEST is a federal TRIO Student Support Services program and has been on the campus of UNC Charlotte since 1988. We provide assistance to 164 UNC Charlotte students to make secondary education dreams a reality.
Description Building Educational Strengths and Talents (BEST) at UNC Charlotte supports you as you strive for excellence, to maintain focus, and in your creation of a well-rounded collegiate experience. While there are multiple ways to become a member of BEST, most of our Achievers (students participating in BEST) are striving to attain the distinction of becoming among the first in their family to earn a baccalaureate degree.

Enrichment Activities

Learning also occurs outside of the classroom. We believe that the arts are important and we celebrate diverse cultures. We expose our Achievers to different cultural and artistic activities. The larger program, BEST, regularly enjoys a variety of activities. These have included:

• Experiential – Artistic
Pottery painting
Pottery making
Movie making
• Experiential - Out-of-doors
Horseback riding
Whitewater rafting
Ice skating

Not all events are off-campus. In many respects, BEST cultural events happen most anytime a group of Achievers get together. Achievers attend a number of on campus events based on similar interest and/or the opportunity to support one another. Past activities have included roundtable discussions with noted authors, change agents, and movie directors, s
