4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I generally feel very safe on campus, but I like to use the buddy system or get a ride somewhere if it's dark out just to be safe.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's so easy to get involved on campus and make friends!

Overall Experience: Professors were world-class and highly passionate about their subjects. There were a large variety of courses offered, and, while some were in high demand and difficult to enroll in, it generally paid off when we were able to take said courses.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I personally did not choose a job or internship immediately out of college, but I can attest to the graduate degree prospects coming out of an undergraduate education from UNC. The education I received has given me excellent post-graduate opportunities which I have used to fulfill my desire to attend medical school.

Health & Safety: Campus DPS is extremely accessible, and they make campus very safe. I very rarely felt unsafe walking alone at night, and when I did feel unsafe, it was near Franklin Street, where there is a very abundant homeless and panhandler population.

Campus Housing: For the first two years of undergrad, living on campus was a fantastic experience, and I would recommend it to anyone. Freshman dorms are a necessary evil for introduction to college life; the adjustment to eight women sharing a single shower was an interesting one, but today (two years post-grad) I am still friends and talk regularly with at least four of my suite mates. The freshman dorms are a trek from the class buildings, but the bus system on campus is fantastic and it's easy to get from one end of campus to the other. Sophomore dorms are much more centrally located and usually hall-style, so they offer more privacy in the living spaces. After the first two years, though, the majority of students move off campus into houses and apartments, and it is a much more affordable option than the dorms.

Greek Life: Involvement in Greek life was not a priority for me, and my friend group overlapped minimally with people in the Greek community. This was not intentional; rather, the campus was large enough and the student body diverse enough that I found other organizations and clubs that suited my interests more closely, and I made friends with many different people within those organizations. While it was neither encouraged nor frowned upon to become involved in Greek life at UNC, those who did join became somewhat segregated from the rest of the campus based on their housing sites. Non-Greek underclassmen primarily lived in the south half of campus, while the Greek students usually chose to move into their sorority/fraternity houses on the far north end; when the campus is over a mile long, this physical separation does make an impact.

Overall Experience: My time at UNC was fantastic. The student body was incredibly diverse and welcoming of students from all different backgrounds, so it was easy for everyone to find their niche on campus. The science disciplines, two of which I majored in, were extremely competitive, and the professors accordingly graded harshly. While I think this has made me a better learner in the long run, it did make adjustment to college and learning how to succeed in my coursework a particularly large challenge for me. I ultimately would choose my school again if I could do it over, because the memories (from attending UNC-Duke games, to rushing Franklin Street, to enjoying a mid-week Pint Night with friends at He's Not Here) and the friends I made there were lasting and substantive.

Athletics: The entire student body is highly involved in athletic events at UNC. We have several varsity teams which consistently rank near the top of the NCAA polls in their respective sports, and school spirit is always strong in support of them. The athletic facilities are very well kept, and are constantly being improved upon.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Security and health services are very good on campus. The campus health services is always helpful, and one generally feels safe on campus.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The range of classes offered is very wide, there are varying class styles and sizes, some courses are more academically rigorous than others, but that's understandable.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Job prospects are very high coming from UNC Chapel Hill, particularly if you are looking into business or medicine. If you're planning on working in the Research Triangle, there are many opportunities available from Chapel Hill

Campus Housing: I live in the Hinton James residence hall, and while the community and the leaders are great, as well as the social atmosphere in general, I don't really enjoy the long walk to classes that comes with living in HoJo.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Team performance at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is outstanding, and athletic events are some of the most popular events on campus. The athletic facilities are very nice, and good use is made of them. There is also a lot of school spirit and fan support on campus.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The student leaders, professors, and TAs are all very willing to help out, and there's a variety of clubs and opportunities offered. However I personally feel as though I'm not really involved in very many of these things, which I would like to do in the future to improve my overall experience.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Other that better lighting around campus, I feel rather safe around Carolina.

Overall Experience: General classes, such as 100 level, are taught by teachers who tend to wean out the kids. The higher the level, the better the teacher usually is.

Campus Housing: When it comes to south campus and freshman dorms, it is all about the luck of the draw. Students who are lucky enough to get into nice dorms tend to not complain. Overall, the social life is great.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is a rather secluded aspect of campus which is very picky about who they invite into their circles.

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.
