5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I don't honestly think I could be happier if I were anywhere but where I am. People are motivated and always willing to help another Tar Heel out. Professors generally want to help you out with any questions you may have.

Overall Experience: The University Of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is such a fantastic university. The student bodies here are so diverse. I was quite overwhelmed at first when i visited the school and felt kind of intimidated because i came from such a small high school in a small city. However, the student here are all so nice and so welcoming. Everyone is treated equally and has the same opportunity as one another. One of my favorite experience here is far is that i get to go on a field trip to one of the park near our school for a research project. I love how i get to work outside of the classroom and go on nice adventures like this. Therefore if i could choose again, i would still choose this university.

Overall Experience: So far I have really enjoyed what UNC Chapel Hill has had to offer me. Coming from a small town and having spent two years at a community college, I wasn't exactly sure what to expect when visiting a big school (as well as one of the best in the nation), but the environment and the people there really make it seem like I will throughly enjoy my time there and learn a lot while I'm at it.

Overall Experience: UNC Chapel Hill is very rigorous! All of the work makes me stressed out often. There are not a lot of resources to help with your academics! They expect us to learn everything on our own. Fortunately it is a large school so there are many extracurricular activities to help get your mind off academics, but this is bittersweet because extracurricular activities take time (and often money) that cuts into your studying time. I love my fellow students. I'm not sure I can say the same for the institution. Regardless, UNC has a lot of prestige, a fact that consoles me when I look at my pitiful GPA.

Overall Experience: I wish I had attended a smaller school. However, most people love their experiences at UNC Chapel Hill. Being a transfer student made the experience a little bit different than the traditional 4 year experience.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: It has been incredible. My school is the perfect mixture of challenging courses, diverse student body and amazing opportunities to be a part of. I would choose my school again and again because there is nothing like its campus culture elsewhere. We are a tight community that looks after each other.

Overall Experience: Best balance of hard, driven work and social fun.

Off-Campus Housing: Apartments and houses are almost all a good distance away from campus, making it difficult to get to class without one's own car.

Guys & Girls: Not to make generalizations but pretty much the whole campus is attractive, fun, outgoing, and intelligent. I don't think I've met a stuck up person while here. The only thing I'd say is you do notice the guy to girl ratio which definitely works in the guys favor.

Athletics: As a former athlete, I've got to say that UNC has one of the best run athletic programs in the country. And the campus support for the athletics teams make it even more fun. Going to games and supporting the Tar Heels is an integral part of your experience at Carolina and it brings the community together in a really great way. Also, our teams are almost all nationally ranked, with at least one team in contention for a National title every year. It really one of the most fun parts of your time at UNC.

Off-Campus Housing: I lived off-campus for two years, and it was mostly fine. The realtors definitely are aware of the demand surrounding off-campus housing so the closer you are to campus the more expensive it is. It was definitely worth it though, and you'll find most student living off campus by their junior year. Getting to campus from where I lived was pretty easy as well, as there are buses that run through chapel hill to campus. The only issue I had was with parking- the town of chapel hill for some reason is really strict with parking so it was a hassle. But the quality of the off-campus house I lived in was pretty good for the cost and I'd do it again.

Party Scene: There's something for everyone in Chapel Hill. The fraternities are a huge draw for underage students, but you'll also find a good amount of underage kids at the local bars. The local bars are pretty varied, so whatever kind of experience you're looking for you can usually find. Thursdays and Saturdays are the big nights to go out, and it's usually pretty fun! It's a college town so the weekends thrum with that energy.

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.
