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.

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

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

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.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I wouldn't have chosen to go to another school. That being said, I wish the school was more forgiving with changes of major/academic interest

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am very excited to take the classes that I sign up for because they are interesting and intriguing.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I think that I have a better chance of getting a job or internship because of the level of prestige that UNC has.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I always feel safe on campus and I know that the campus police and Chapel Hill police work very hard to make me and other students feel that way.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I chose to live in Granville Towers, but most freshman live on south campus and love the social atmosphere and freshman environment.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I haven't really seen an issue with health & safety. That being said, as a white male, I am not the most likely person to be a victim of sexual assault. That being said, sexual assault awareness and prevention is heavily emphasized at UNC.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I haven't really had an issue with campus housing, although I know some people are not huge fans of it.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I'm not really into Greek Life, but there are plenty of opportunities for those that are.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Sports are a huge part of school, especially basketball and football. People who were not previously sports fans love to take part in sports at UNC.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I'm really enjoying the school so far. There are a lot of great people that go here, and all of them are eager, confident, and ready to succeed.

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.
