Why did YOU JOIN Student49er club?
"As a proud 49er, I joined Student 49er Club to support Charlotte 49er Athletics. Being a part of this organization allowed me to meet friends with the same enthusiasm I had for all Charlotte sports. I cherish many memories and wonderful experiences with great people at all the different sporting events throughout my 4 years at UNC Charlotte."

"I got involved with Student 49er Club because I saw it as the best opportunity to get involved with athletics at Charlotte. You know, since I'm not exactly an athletic stud. I also felt that I would be able to be around other people who enjoyed sports, and I was right. Some of my best friends were met through athletics and Student 49er Club. I remember going on road trips to Richmond and ECU for basketball games, and having a great time there. It has truly been one of the biggest parts of my time at Charlotte."

"I joined S49erC for many reasons but the reason I joined it the most was for the life-long friendships I knew I would develop in the organization that combined my love of sports and cheering into one. I have always loved sports and have for my entire life; playing, coaching, observing and now working in the sports world. Student 49er Club for me has afforded me, not only an amazing 4 years of college with amazing friends, but also the opportunity to really strengthen my love and want to continue a life in the sports world."

"The reason why I got involved with Student 49er Club is simple....Pride for My University. From the moment I stepped on Charlotte's campus back in 2007 I fell in love with all aspects of UNC Charlotte. Some of my greatest memories from being a student there has to do with Charlotte Athletics. From rushing the court my sophomore year when the mens basketball team beat #16 Xavier, to the Women's Basketball Team winning the A-10 championship in 2009, to a underestimated men's basketball team beating #7 Tennessee 49-48, and spending a weekend off and on with the Charlotte Men's Soccer team in Hover, Alabama as they competed for the 2011 College Cup. There are many more, but all these memories I hold dear to my heart, and they all were possible because I decided to take my pride for my university a little further and join Student 49er Club. It was a great 5 years Niners! Go Niners!"

"Hello everyone. My name is Juan Fuentes. I graduated from UNC Charlotte and I am now part of the 49er Club. The 49er Club is the alumni version of S49erC. I got to meet hundreds (literally, hundreds) of people from all over campus in the Student 49er Club. It is a great way for you to make close friendships with NCAA athletes and it is also a way to enjoy your time at Charlotte. I was able to witness many exciting athletic events including the College Cup Final in Hoover, Alabama. I know that the school spirit we have is contagious and I cannot imagine anyone who does not love to be a part of this amazing organization!"

"I got involved with Student 49er Club because I had a passion for sports even before I got to Charlotte. Student 49er Club has given me awesome opportunities within the athletic department, and I met most of my friends through Student 49er Club. The road trips sponsored by S49erC for basketball games have been an absolute blast. Attending the College Cup is one of my best memories from college. We used to campout before every basketball game and that was always a blast. I've gotten to meet most of our athletes, and it's really a special environment at Charlotte, because you really get to see how much the athletes appreciate the students. Joining Student 49er Club has definitely been one of the best decisions of my college experience!"
Ryan Benson, Class of 2014
"I joined Student 49er Club as a freshmen because I wanted to be a part of a group that loved UNC Charlotte and Charlotte 49ers athletics as much as I did. I had some of the most unforgettable college experiences in my time as a member. I will never forget all the bus field trips to rival schools, proudly wearing my S49erC shirt and of course, sitting in section 104 at Halton Arena and cheering until my voice was gone. GO NINERS!"
Alex Stefanescu, Class of 2011
"I have always loved attending sporting events to support Charlotte's various teams. At every game, I always noticed the same wild group of loud, obnoxious college kids with an obvious fire in their hearts for their school. I heard the chants, saw the Green&White, and felt the excitement & passion. That's when I knew I HAD to be a part of it. #S49erC #Winning"

"I got involved in Student 49er Club because it is a great way to give back to the Athletic program to help individuals in the future, by providing them with scholarships and money to improve our athletic teams. By becoming invovled in Student 49er Club I have been able to meet so many new friends at UNC Charlotte. Some of my good friends now are people that I met while going to athletic events and certain celebrations through Niner Nation Gold. It is an awesome experience seeing lots of sporting events meeting new people and knowing that I am helping the future UNC Charlotte athletic teams. Student 49er Club is the best thing that I have become involved with at UNC Charlotte."
Michael Putnam, Class of 2014
"I joined Student 49er Club because I am a huge sports fan and I needed a way to meet new people. As a freshman, it was very intimidating coming into a new place not knowing anyone. I made some great friends that will last a lifetime!"
