Academics: There are a lot of opportunities for Psychology majors at UNC. Although I was a freshman last year, there are many classes, programs and opportunites for psychology upperclassmen.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: The curriculum, professors, and workload are challenging in a extremely good way.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: UNC is diverse in many aspects including political affiliation and religious background.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I've generally loved my small, discussion-based classes, and gotten much less out of large lecture-style classes. Lectures always have corresponding recitations with around 25 people and a TA, but they are more of a waste of time than they are helpful usually. Some professors are extremely arrogant, while others are fun and approachable and are the reason you want to come to class.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: You certainly work for your degree here, but the value of it makes it all worth it. UNC is nationally respected and being a Tarheel means having access to an accomplished and loyal alumni network for life.

2 College Senior

Academics: The School of Education at UNC is slightly more ideology based than pedagogy based, for better or for worse. My classes have been very focused on making my classroom inclusive, interacting with families of different frameworks and cultures, or incorporating different cultures into my curriculum. I feel than I have had significantly less instruction on HOW to actually teach.

3 College Senior

Academics: UNC is very very challenging, but manageable once you get the hang of college and find your niche. It's a bit too big for its own good, so you must fight for personal attention. Many freshman and sophomore level classes are huge, and a good half of your professors will never have a clue who you are.

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Being in a sorority, most of my interactions with males on campus have been with those in a fraternity. Though there are exceptions, most of the guys on campus are not interested in pursuing a dating relationship. Most of my friends have boyfriends, but they almost all go to different colleges.

5 College Senior

Athletics: Football games and basketball games will make you bleed Carolina blue, and it's a great feeling to grab your fellow Tarheels and sing "Hark the Sound" after a win. Also, the correct spelling is "Dook."

3 College Senior

Facilities: SRC gym is much nicer than Ram's head, though it is farther away. Wilson library is pretty on campus tours, but it's one of those things you'll probably never use ever. Davis is outdated and depressing, though it is large and efficient for the size of the student body.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Chapel Hill, Carrboro and Durham have a huge selection of restaurants. There are many late night options for after bars/parties, as well as many upscale restaurants for fancier dinners out. Top of the Hill and Spanky's are popular with tourists and freshmen.

College Senior

Campus Dining: I lived in Granville Towers freshman year, and have had a meal plan with my sorority ever since then, so I've never had an on-campus dining plan.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: Scholarships are mostly need based, though there are merit ones available. The average student is not very likely to qualify for these however, as UNC is incredibly competitive.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek life is bigger at UNC than at most other UNC system schools or those in the ACC, but it doesn't completely dominate campus. There is somewhat of a divide between Greeks and non-Greeks, but there isn't really a stigma of dating or associating with those who aren't Greek if you are, and vice-versa.

4 College Junior

Academics: The Journalism school at Carolina is one of the best in the country, and it really makes me feel at home when I am in the classroom.

UNC is known for its great academics, abundant research facilities, and storied athletic programs. Students who are priviliged enough to attend Carolina are happy with their choice even though it may not always have been their dream. UNC has been in the top five public schools in the country for the past eight years, and it is considered a "public ivy," so it's no secret that the quality of education at Carolina is far above average. Students at Carolina are continually pushing borders, experiencing new things, and becoming individuals.

At the end of their collegiate careers, many boast of having had the best four years of their lives in Chapel Hill, and that is evidenced by the overwhelming alumni support. UNC will prepare you for what is to come after the beautiful undergraduate years under the perfect Carolina blue sky. But most importantly at Chapel Hill, it is important to cherish every moment because four years fly by, and the college experience is soon over. One of the best things about Carolina is the immense school pride with which the stuent body lives as Tar Heels. Sure, college will be difficult. There will be failed exams and broken hearts, but there will also be experiences that you will never forget—weekend trips with your friends, late night yo-po runs, foam parties at Pulse, Holi Moli, and many others. When you attend Carolina, you will receive a quality education and a great college experience.
