4 College Junior

Health & Safety: The campus police are always out and the P2P shuttle is great for "after party" delivery to the dorms. However, that being said, if you are "out passed a particular time" the P2P is not available and getting a campus officer to walk you to the dorm isn't always available. You have to plan accordingly. Being a female, I'm not always comfortable to "walk from North Campus to South Campus" alone.

Greek Life: I've seen and heard stories about the frats and sororities on campus. I have not and do not plan to pledge a sorority and therefore can not provide any input

Weather: Summers are hot and humid. Winters are cold and there is the possibility of snow.

Administration: School policies did not affect my social life. As long as you do not break the law or cheat (copy test/essay material) school policies will not affect you very much.

Health & Safety: I had no concerns walking on campus late at night and frequently did so. Students were quickly made aware of any issues on campus that were crime related.

Campus Housing: I lived in Granville Towers which is close to campus but not technically an "on campus dorm". Average walk time to classes was <15 minutes. Amenities were amazing including the Agora, which is a dining hall exclusively for Granville residents. I also took advantage of the pool and gym as opposed to walking to the campus versions.

Transportation: I used buses to travel around campus for classes. Bus schedules were easy to access and I had no problem navigating where I needed to go. I had a car for other transportation needs as parking around campus after 5 was not a big hassle. Cost to use buses is zero.

Off-Campus Housing: There are many apartments close to campus to choose from. Many are also connected to the bus line that runs through campus so accessibility is not an issue.

Scholarships: I did not have to apply for financial aid or scholarships for my undergraduate degree.

3 Recent Alumnus

Drug Safety: Drinking of all ages runs rampant. I did not notice heavy drug use but that doesn't mean it's not there. Even under the age of 21 I could easily access alcohol if I wanted to.

Local Area: It's a small city that thrives because of the University. If you don't mind being around teenagers or 20 somethings it's a perfect atmosphere. Surrounding areas are known for a "hippie" atmosphere.

Greek Life: I joined a fraternity my Junior year of college. My college experience before joining was great, I had a fun time.

Parking: There are places to park if you know where to look. Cobb deck is one place, University Square is another. Also, Ram's deck down near the Dean Dome. Always be wary of special events on campus and how that affects free parking.

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.
