5 College Freshman

Academics: Depending on majors, courses could be very tough. However, make the best out of it! As long as you don't stress yourself out and want to feel negative, you can see so many more positive aspects, especially if you have nice relationships, too. If you major in biomedical engineering and minoring in physics, naturally there will be a heavy workload, but I genuinely enjoy the subject, partially because the people here are great, as well. There are so many opportunities there, and the professors are happy to take on underclassmen. Just make sure you reach out to them, though. Don't expect the opportunity to just come to you.

Academics: Over all, the workload is definitely tough. For first-years it is because we don't know how to budget our time well; for second years, a lot want to study abroad or that is when we get serious about extra curricular, so everything is a little more time consuming; junior classes are just super tough; seniors have senioritis, so it goes back to budgeting time again. Professors are all pretty cool here, depending on the class. I'm primarily taking science and math courses and I've liked most of them so far. Class registration pretty much sucks, but they do get better as you become upperclassmen since they have more priority. There are A LOT of free tutoring around here, so unless you really want one on one, there is no reason to spend money at all. However, that does change as the classes get harder and become more specialized; then you're best off with study groups. The libraries get packed pretty quick, but Davis has eight or more floors, so you can likely find a spot.

Health & Safety: Neighboring crime off-campus has made on-campus life rather unnerving, too. But on-campus it is pretty nice, though sometimes uptight.

Guys & Girls: Lots of people around here. Many complain about the ratio, but it hasn't been a big enough issue. Depending on your major, dating may or may not even be possible/important.

Overall Experience: It's hard to get know anyone personally because there are so many things going on. You meet someone, and then they become a face. Make sure you make some meaningful connections! Get to know your professors, too. However, there are so many things happening. Take advantage of that during first year.

Off-Campus Housing: Buildings are a little old for the high rent prices.

4 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: Awesome variety close to campus

4 Recent Alumnus

Administration: They are pretty strict when it comes to enforcing rules on campus.

3 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: I wish there was more financial aid made available to graduate students.

4 Recent Alumnus

Party Scene: Not too crazy but enough to go have a good time.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Food: Decent variety and very accessible/convenient.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: Recent updates help make campus seem more homely.

College Sophomore

Party Scene: I don't go to parties, so I have no opinion on the party scene.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I usually eat at Ram's Head Dining Hall, which has decent food but can get really crowded. The restaurants in Lenoir are good, but can be a little expensive.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I like the dorm room itself, but the bathroom is less than stellar, with only one shower for eight girls who all seem to want to shower at the same time.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: I really like the party scene here. The bars and clubs play really great music, but if you don't want to spend money, the Frat parties are also pretty fun.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The rating is only this high because of Franklin Street and the Bottom of Lenoir. I really do not appreciate the lack of variety at Lenoir and Rams.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I really like the residence hall I will live in next year. A lot of my friends will be living thee and I just like the whole atmosphere of the building.

College Freshman

Party Scene: Never went to a party. Not my scene

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Two dining halls. Plenty of variety although there are some off days where the food just isn't good. Also pricey depending on which plan you have. Unlimited is best plan if you eat a lot and is very convenient. Overall, its hard to say you can't eat anything any day. There is usually something good.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: South campus is definitely the place to be for underclassmen. Residents are friendly and outgoing.

3 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: This is a problem, but decreasing drinking may decrease the issue

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.
