5 College Senior

Facilities: UNC is a beautiful campus. When I walk to class I can't help but to smile because of its beauty.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: It's just frustrating because I really need the money but there's nothing advisors can do.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: Everything is pretty close in proximity, you just have to know people.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Franklin street is the main and convenient place to go for off campus dining.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: UNC has a beautiful campus and with a combination of modern and traditional.

5 College Freshman

Transportation: Bus transportation is very convenient and accessible.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The majority are nice people trying to find their place at the university.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: There are so many different types of people in UNC.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: It is college so people do what they want and will get their hands on what they want. People just accept it.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: You have to use the bus system if you want to go anywhere outside of campus.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The police are there quickly when you need them, but they aren't around when you don't. They aren't visible very much.

2 College Freshman

Parking: I do not personally know the costs because I am not able to have a car, but many people have to walk several miles to their car.

1 College Freshman

Scholarships: I received not one penny of financial aid, and they completely messed with my financial aid so they didn't have to pay me anything.

3 College Freshman

Computers: I really do not like the amount we have to pay for printing and having teachers ask us to bring in multiple readings and assignments printed out.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The campus is relatively kept pretty dark, so it is discouraging walking anytime at night by yourself.

5 College Freshman

Academics: The academics are known to be pretty prestigious and difficult, and thus far I would agree.

3 College Freshman

Academics: It is pretty difficult because of the "weed out classes".

4 Recent Alumnus

Academics: As a humanities major, I've enjoyed my academic experience. I've had a LOT of work for sure, but it's been manageable. The departments in general are decently sized and so are the classes so it's easier to get to know your professors than some of the larger science classes.

Weather: Pros: absolutely BEAUTIFUL in the fall and spring

Cons: extremely hot at very beginning/end of school year, extremely temperamental year round

The weather can be 75 one day and 50 the next. So you're going to have to check the weather every day before class. Other than the extreme temperatures in august/may, the rest of the year is pretty awesome. It occasionally snows in the winter and it rains every once in a while in the fall and spring. I would definitely invest in a pair of rainboots.

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.
