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.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Most students are in fairly good shape and attractive enough. The 60-40 ratio is definitely tough on us girls! I think the best way to meet someone compatible is through a class or campus organization because you know you share an interest with them and can hit off over that.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: It's kind of hard to make friends at first. However, there is a guy or a girl there for everyone because the campus is just so diverse.

Carolina offers many opportunities to meet people of the opposite sex for friendship or something more. There are parties, clubs, organizations, sports, and many communal places that students meet up. Guys are in luck at Carolina, as UNC has a high percentage of ladies on campus, and there is an abundance of smart, beautiful, and talented collegiates. UNC also has a great atmosphere to maintain a serious relationship if a student should so choose, with lots of romantic restaurants, picnic spots, and plenty of couples activities. If students want to venture a little further, there are plenty of weekends in store that involve hiking trails, beach fun, and camping.

There are so many different types of people at Carolina that it is relatively easy to find someone that you will click with. It seems that everyone is the cream of the crop here, so it's hard to go wrong. One of the most popular sayings at Carolina is "Carolina girls are the best in the world," and the same goes for the guys. There is a mutual respect shown at UNC, and it leads to a cohesive and collaborative atmosphere that sometimes yields long-term relationships.

Social Scene
It is quite easy to meet people at UNC. It is up to you to interact with all the people that will be placed around you though. Granted, because UNC's gender ratio is tipped disproportionately to the women, it is slightly easier for men to date and interact with women. However, because there are so many schools in the area, ladies have a prime selection to choose from as well.
Hookups or Relationships?
There are many students who are in relationships-either with another UNC student or with a student from another college in the area (NC State, Duke, Wake Forest, etc.). At a school with 28,000 students including the professional schools, there is definitely a chance to meet someone for a relationship, a hookup, or whatever you might be interested in. Good places to meet people are definitely bars, clubs, and frat parties, but sometimes those late-night study sessions can lead to a romance, too.
Dress Code
Carolina features a wardrobe as diverse as the student body. Students wear what they please and aren't judged for that. Fashion is definitely a means of self expression, but it doesn't take on a "hoity-toity" feel. All that being said, Chapel Hill students do clean up quite nice.
