5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Having been a part of Carolina athletics, it is an amazing experience. Going to games and celebrating wins has created memories that I will never forget long after I graduate.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I have lived on campus so far with my time at Carolina, but I've heard living off campus can be great too.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Off campus dining, especially Franklin street, is great. There are plenty of options to choose from, and especially when it gets late at night, there are plenty of delivery options for while you're up late studying. Franklin street has a mixture of casual, delicious food to ethnic food choices, to more fancy and special occasion restaurants. It's one of my favorite parts about Carolina.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Personally, I don't go out or attend parties often, so I'm not great at knowing where the hot spots are. Also, not being 21 hinders me from knowing what the best bar options are on campus, and where the best parties are.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: When it comes to serious offenses, campus administration springs into action when needed. However, when it comes to the smaller, more common offenses such as underage drinking and noise violations, it seems as if those are let go a little bit more than they should be.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: My parents really helped me greatly with filling out the necessary forms and all to apply for financial aid. However, once all of the paperwork was filled out, Carolina has really helped make it possible for me to attend my dream university.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Finding food on campus is pretty easy. Although it can get a little repetitive sometimes when being forced to eat a lot of the same thing sometimes, overall it's convenient to have a variety so close. Personally, I haven't had a meal plan since the first semester of my freshman year because it was too expensive for me and I didn't come close to using all of my meals for the semester. I wish there was a meal plan with less meals per semester, or that it was cheaper to just swipe into the dining hall every now and then when I have a craving. My favorite thing to do for food is to just eat in my room, or make the short trip to Franklin street where I am surrounded with a variety of options to choose from.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus is great. I have lived on campus both of my years at Carolina so far and there's a great feeling of camaraderie with the people that live around you. The rooms are of decent size and the furthest you can be from main campus is about a 15 minute walk. Overall I have loved living on campus so far and I will probably continue to do it until I graduate.

College Junior

Campus Food: I do not have a food meal plan with the University.

College Junior

Campus Housing: I currently do not live on campus at the University.

College Freshman

Administration: I did not spend much time on campus besides to go to class so I do not have much experience with the administration or campus safety and strictness.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: On UAA's part, the financial aid process went very smoothly and it was very easy to find the help I needed.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The campus has a couple of coffee shops, a Subway, a Chinese place, and they serve sushi at the coffee shops and Chinese place. The Chinese food is not good but the food at the coffee shops and Subway and the sushi are all great and reasonably priced. There may not be a big enough student population to support more variety in food options but I like the options they have.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I've never lived off campus, but apparently it's cheaper.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: The honor code is usually pretty strictly enforced.

College Sophomore

Party Scene: I don't go to parties, so I have no idea what the scene is.

College Sophomore

Scholarships: I did not apply for financial aid, so I have nothing to say.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The dining halls are of course not spectacular, but they do the job.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Close to classes and good for social life. The rooms are a little small but other than that it's fine!

College Freshman

Majors: Not sure about this yet ahhh

3 College Freshman

Diversity: It's a pretty white school with a strong minority presence. I honestly forget sometimes what the statistics are because it doesn't seem that way, but their is a lack of diversity on campus compared to other schools of this caliber.

Campus Quality: A truly beautiful campus with vibrancy. Some days there are lots and lots of things happening and some days its very quiet and peaceful, it all depends.

Guys & Girls: UNC is pretty diverse in its student body. You will see a lot of the preppy guys, but there's so much more than if you keep your eyes open.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I think overall the academic options are great - but it's not all perfect. So far, all of my professors have been very committed to my learning and have been fair in grading. I'm extremely happy with the ethic they have shown (not so much with my work ethic, but oh well). There are a huge variety of classes to take, and it can be hard to digest at first, but they really do try to help you wade through it all. I'd say most people take a few big classes first year, perhaps 3-5 with a couple hundred students, but it differs for everyone based on their major.

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.
