Growing up on the outskirts of Charlotte in Indian Trail, NC, Esteban Mendieta knew that he wanted to stay closer to home. This, along with the summer experiences provided by the Levine Scholars Program, led the mechanical engineering and business management double major to choose UNC Charlotte. Esteban loves how many international students are a part of UNC Charlotte and the fact that he is a part of a growing university and city.
Esteban is staking his claim as a 49er through his involvement with campus organizations such as Charlotte Dance Marathon, Cru, and the Flamenco Guitar Club. He volunteers as a guitarist, bassist, and English teacher and also spent a semester studying abroad in Sevilla, Spain.
