4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: A mix of chain and local restaurants. Things get pricier the farther down Franklin street you go.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Good for local activities, but if you want a place with unlimited opportunities Chapel Hill is not the place.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: While I know of people who have participated in drugs, it's not a huge part of their lives. People generally use them to have a good time, but it is by no means a huge scene on campus. Underage drinking is easy to find if you look for it, but if that's not your scene then there's no pressure to join.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Frat parties are good for the first two years. Bars and house parties are good for last two years.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: Good if you're generally liberal leaning.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: The farther away you get from campus, the worse off the transportation is.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: South campus is the worst, but most other housing is conveniently located and quality the farther north you go.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are usually plenty of options, but they tend to be pricey.

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: While I did not receive any financial aid, there are sometimes good opportunities for students in unfortunate financial situations.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greeks and non-Greeks don't mingle much, other than freshman girls going to frat parties. Most frats have a reputation as sleazy jerks and the sorority girls are interchangeable.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Not a very strict campus

5 College Sophomore

Academics: It is NOT easy. You have to come prepared to work hard, but it gets better once you get your feet under you.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There's a wide variety of places, each one better than the last. If you're willing to venture into Carrboro or Durham, options expand even more.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: All the students supports the athletic teams and the games are a big part of the college experience

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Our atheltic teams are some of the best in the nation.

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.
