5 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Amazing campus. Great environment that is warm and welcoming. The students here are fabulous and are always helping each other. Making friends is not hard at all, and lets not forget about our awesome football and basketball team. The games are filled with fun, excitement, and competiveness. It is the best school on the planet.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I am a junior here at Carolina and as a Biology major I am surrounded by professors, teaching assistants and fellow students who are each and everyone of them their own unique scientist. With different interests and reasons behind their passion for science. The classrooms and lab envirnments are well organized and modern along with a curriculum that is constantly being reviewed and updated. These criteria are absolutely needed for flourishing scientific programs, of which Carolina has many.

Academics: Carolina has very high acedemic standards and I am proud to be a part of such an excellent school. It is easy to see the dedication of our students. Our overall thirst for knowledge and acedemic success it visable even if you spend just a day on campus. In the classrooms, the library and even spread over the grounds, when the weather permits, you will find carolina students studying, discussing a broud range of subjects with genuine interest and truely enjoying their education.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Carolina has a well-known reputation in the state for having very attractive females and I agree with this for the most part. I think we also have an attractive male component to our student body. In general, I think that carolina is composed of bright, well dressed and predominantly good natured students from all over the country and all over the would. I believe that the beauty of our students is matched only by the beauty of our campus and the diversity of culture and hertitage makes it that much more amazing to be a part of.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: Incredible. Literally everything about the campus facilities is great. There's a lot of room, both inside and out.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: This place is very safe. I've never run into any problems with anything, although if you go off campus to Franklin Street, you will likely encounter some strange, creepy people.

4 College Freshman

Weather: I'm from the beach, so I'm used to the sun and warm temperature. It does get cold and dreary at times, but it's nothing you can't handle for sure. Besides, the cold weather is sort of refreshing.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Some people say the rooms are too small, but if you pick the right residence halls, you'll have plenty of room.

South campus is MUCH more social, and there's always stuff happening. South campus dorms are a further walk to class, but it's barely noticeable. Ram's gym and dining hall are really close too, as are Kenan Stadium and the Dean Dome.

Stick to Hardin/Craige North for dorms. They're the two newest, have the biggest rooms on South campus, have internal hallways, and you have to share your bathroom with only one other room instead of 3. Koury/Horton are older versions of basically the same set up. But it's easier to be social in internal hallways.

Athletics: All of the varsity teams are competitive. Intramural is good fun as well. The gyms and other facilities on campus are great too.

You wont find a better rivalry than the Duke/UNC basketball rivalry anywhere.

3 College Freshman

Majors: The system is above average, but I still feel as though I'm not challenged much. Professors are good, but not excellent.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Chapel Hill is gorgeous and there is always plenty to do.

Computers: I have never had a problem with computer usage on campus. I can always find a computer to use in the library and wifi always works well.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Varsity sports at UNC are fantastic! We have a very deep and talented program with all of our teams. Nothing is better than going to a Tar Heel sporting event. The facilities are all very nice, and athletes are treated well. Club sports are also very popular among students, as well as intramural sports. Everyone is able to play a sport on campus because there are so many options and levels of play!

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms are small unless you get into the Kenan community which is reserved for upperclassman.

1 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking on campus is only available after 5 on weekdays and they usually fill up right at five. You can purchase a spot but they are quite expensive.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Usually the weather is cool and sunny but lately it has been rainy and gloomy.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: This college is really not all that strict on clothing or behavior. They do however crack down on underage drinking and honor code violations which is good and appropriate.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Strict, everyone is encouraged to abide by the law.

Off-Campus Dining: TONS of options on Franklin Street and, if you are willing to venture to Carrboro, there are pleenty more unique options.

3 Recent Alumnus

Parking: Parking can be a bit difficult at times. If you are willing to pay hourly for the ramps you will be in good shape. Permits are available and probably the best choice.

5 College Freshman

Transportation: Public transportation is really good and its free. Buses run all the time. You just have to make sure you get on the right one to where you want to go and the right one to take you back to your dorm.It's easy!

5 Recent Alumnus

Weather: When you're a freshman living in the (possibly) un-airconditioned high-rise dorms on south campus, you may hate NC weather, but it's beautiful to see the seasons change on campus because of all the trees. UNC is what people picture in their minds when they picture the perfect "college", with a big grassy quad and tree-lined pathways. Winter isn't too fierce, with maybe 2-3 snow days.

4 Recent Alumnus

Nightlife: There are tons of parties Thursday - Saturday night on and around campus, plus the club scene on Franklin Street has a few 18+ options. Concerts are another good option with lots of great shows at Cat's Cradle nearby in Carrboro. Public transportation around Chapel Hill is great - Carrboro is a little further but not bad at all.

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.
