3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The off-campus housing is available yet is costly.

Party Scene: Most parties occur in local frat houses. The parties are amazing if you choose the right houses.

Off-Campus Dining: The food around Franklin Street and in Carrboro is amazing. I just wish that some of the places were a little cheaper (especially when ordering from tarheel takeout) for students that are earning their own money.

Administration: The campus provides ample opportunity for academics and extracurricular activities while still maintaining a relatively alcohol/drug free environment.

Scholarships: Financial aid is surprisingly difficult to receive, especially regarding need based scholarships. My parents earn an income that is a little higher than the maximum for receiving aid, yet they do not earn enough money to pay for three family members earning bachelor degrees.

Campus Food: The flex dollars are very useful in purchasing food! In the dining halls, I wish there were more vegetarian options.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are better than many other college dormitories. Each student has the option of choosing the housing that best suites his/her interests (i.e. suite or hall style). The RAs in the dorm work to facilitate social interaction among the community which is great.

Campus Food: The food is mediocre and varies on a daily basis, some days it is good, others it is really poor.

Off-Campus Dining: A lot of variety, but not many student discounts, which makes me not want to go frequently to the places that don't.

Party Scene: I'm not into frat parties where you basically only go to get drunk and see if sex will be available; so I prefer student house parties where you actually have a party, you know, where you actually dance?

Administration: It's not overly strict, but neither overly lenient.

Scholarships: Too much paper work to be sent, but I guess that's understandable.

Campus Housing: Lived in Koury my first year; wasn't bad. I'm living in Kenan Community next year, which I have heard has the nicest dorms. Too north of campus, though.

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.

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.

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.

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.
