Drug Safety: Drinking of all ages runs rampant. I did not notice heavy drug use but that doesn't mean it's not there. Even under the age of 21 I could easily access alcohol if I wanted to.

3 Recent Alumnus

Local Atmosphere: It's a small city that thrives because of the University. If you don't mind being around teenagers or 20 somethings it's a perfect atmosphere. Surrounding areas are known for a "hippie" atmosphere.

Greek Life: I joined a fraternity my Junior year of college. My college experience before joining was great, I had a fun time.

Parking: There are places to park if you know where to look. Cobb deck is one place, University Square is another. Also, Ram's deck down near the Dean Dome. Always be wary of special events on campus and how that affects free parking.

5 College Junior

Facilities: Overall, our facilities are wonderful and convenient.

3 College Senior

Weather: It is pretty cold most of the school year, but not as bad as other parts of the country. It usually transitions quickly from summer to winter here.

5 College Senior

Drug Safety: Lots of people drink responsibly. There is quite a bit of weed.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: There is a ton of police around. I guess that is good, but they give a lot of parking tickets.

2 College Senior

Diversity: You're going to see a lot of white people, maybe raised Christian but definitely not anymore, who are typically democrat voters. VERY few black or hispanic males (hence my low rating). Many Chinese undergraduate and graduate students, increasing but small numbers of Europeans. High numbers of Indian and Asian-american students living on campus.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of chains. Good quality non-chain food down the western end of Franklin. Good wings, fast pizza delivery. Take a short drive to Carborro pr Rosemary for more comfortable places.

3 College Senior

Weather: North Carolina weather can be crazy sometimes, especially in the transitions between seasons. Be prepared for large changes w/in one week wardrobe wise.

College Senior

Nightlife: I'm not really a nightlife kind of person so I have no idea.

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.
