5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I've had some amazing professors and some not so amazing professors. But overall, professors are of the highest caliber and make strides in their fields. They are passionate and fast-paced.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Though I have yet to take advantage of career services, the door has always been very open. There is a huge network of help in finding a job or internship, including those specific to departments and more general career services. A degree from Carolina is very valuable.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: As a man, I personally have not had many experiences feeling unsafe on campus. Crime is moderate; there will occasionally be reports of burglary or robbery on or near campus. The emergency poles set up around campus make me feel safer. The UNC Alert system could be more timely in notifying students of possible threats.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Living on campus is best for the social atmosphere and the convenience of being so close to class. It usually works out that living off campus is cheaper, so the housing department is constantly changing and offering new things to keep students on campus, especially for juniors/seniors. I enjoyed my time in residence halls immensely for the ease of making friends, the sense of community, and the convenience. RAs and community directors care deeply about residents and offer a lot of activities and programs.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: With Greek life on college campuses often found in the news for misconduct, it is nice to see that Carolina Greek life rises above that. There is still a sense of intolerance among some fraternities that does not align with the larger atmosphere of Carolina, but since Greek life has a smaller effect on our campus than at other schools it is not that noticeable.

4 College Junior

Athletics: School spirit is unlike any other. Our basketball team is of course the biggest sport attraction and really unites students under a commonality. There are many different levels from IM, Rec, Club, and Varsity sports for students of all skill levels to be a part of something.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The sense of inclusivity and belonging at Carolina makes it what it is. The amount of opportunities make it so that there is a place for everyone. The academics are rigorous, but it is comforting to know that everyone there is as motivated and hard-working as you. Students are the best of the best without being elitist; the student body is diverse, approachable, and determined.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Course are difficult, but there's always help around!

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Alert Carolina is very slow to notify us of on and off-campus issues.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Most of the professors I have had I enjoyed.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The value of a degree from UNC is one of the best.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I do not know much about sexual assault on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Some of the housing at UNC is a hike from classes.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I do not know much about Greek Life.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: All around great sports teams!

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: UNC has been my dream school since I was little.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I've never felt unsafe on campus. An e-mail is sent out to the entire student body whenever a crime or dangerous situation is reported on campus (and you can opt in to text messages as well), and this rarely happens, which is impressive for an open campus.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The only dorm that I can really talk about is Ehringhaus, where I lived last year. It certainly wasn't terrible, but the building was mildly dilapidated. It was old and and not very well-maintained. The worst part was the elevators. They were incredibly slow (my personal record for waiting for an elevator to arrive was about eight minutes) and it seemed like one of the two was out of order about half the time. Not good when you live on the sixth floor. They also cram all of the first-year dorms on south campus, half a mile from the nearest building where classes are held, for no apparent reason (there's enough room between the first-year dorms and classes for AT LEAST three more buildings), which seems pretty unreasonable.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I generally don't really care about sports, so I don't know an awful lot about the athletic programs, but that in and of itself is a good thing - it shows that those who want to avoid sports can easily do so. From what I can tell, though, people who do like sports are satisfied with the options available to engage them, while those who don't are able to get along without interference into their lives from the goings-on in the sports world. The only exception during the past year was when the men's basketball team qualified for the national championship, leading a few buildings, including the student union, to close early. I had also seen the pictures of hundreds if not thousands of students congregating in celebration from the time that the team won the national championship in 2005, so I was scared of what might happen if they won again, but fortunately (at least for the sake of law and order) they lost and none of my fears came to fruition.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Non-intro classes are pretty small and allow for discussion. Get ready for the work, professors expect high levels of commitment to subject matter

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: There are a lot of prospects, but kind of a black box in terms of competition and who eventually gets hired.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: It's safe for me. Stuff happens, but police and people are pretty accessible.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: It's great to live with your friends and be around them 24/7. Campus housing is best for freshmen to find friends, but the atmosphere gets suffocating as time progresses.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: It's a social group like any other. You join if you like the people, and find gdi friends otherwise

4 College Senior

Athletics: The school loves its athletics, maybe a little too much.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
