4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I believe that attending Chapel Hill will allow me to be apart of a very large alumni network that will help me all throughout my life, even after graduation. The staff that works with job and internship assistance is very eager to see Tar heels succeed, and works hard to meet our requests.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: UNC strives to provide a feeling of security and safety in all aspects. Special precautions are taken around campus, and there are also various resources that are available to all students. I feel extremely safe on campus, and very confident in the campus safety individuals.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in Granville Towers and I absolutely love it! The dorms are very nice, their amenities are high quality and very appreciated, and there are always activities going on! Although Granville is more expensive than many other on-campus housing options, it's convent and well worth the extra cost! The managers are also super nice and very easy to work with... the communication is great!

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: The Greek life at UNC is present, but not overwhelming! It adds to the social atmosphere of the school by providing things to do, but does not dominate it, as there are MANY other clubs and organizations! Greeks and Non-Greeks seem to get along just fine- we all recognize that we're all apart of the UNC family! There seems to be a lot of options for Greek Housing.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Chapel Hill is not only well-known for many different athletic teams, but the school spirit is one like no other!

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: UNC Chapel Hill has everything... academics, diversity, campus life, and SO many opportunities for enrichment, no matter what your interests are!

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Depends on where you stay. North campus is better in my opinion.

5 College Junior

Athletics: THE BEST BASKETBALL TEAM EVER!!!!!

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Very Safe to walk at night.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The courses at UNC are great. They can be very challenging, but I think for the most part I've learned a lot. I have had some AMAZING professors in my short time. I only have one professor that I just strongly disliked, but for the most part my professors are always able to help out. Most of the time I don't even go to them about the curriculum; I go to get advice about doing research and applying to summer research programs, and just to get to know the professors. Classes can be large, but you can still be a part of the class. The professor I got to know the best my first semester actually taught my 450 person bio class. Like even with the class sizes, you can still get to know the professors just by going to office hours.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I am doing summer research at Vanderbilt after my first year at UNC. I am one of only a few freshman out of about 90 people in this program. That is amazing. I didn't think this would ever happen. The job/internship prospects are great!

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel extremely safe on campus. I think maybe we could have some more blue boxes, but other than that I feel safe. I also know there are a lot of services to help out if something does happen.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I was very fortunate to live in Horton, which along with Koury makes up the community with the best freshman housing. My room was HUGE and the living situation was very nice. I also lived with the other Chancellor's Science Scholars, so I knew everyone on my hall which was very nice. I have friends who lived in some of the smaller dorms, and although not as nice, they were perfectly happy. I know that some of the sophomore dorms are really small so that's going to be an adjustment, but overall there is enough space. The social atmosphere is nice and the resident hall association (RHA) does lots of events with free food and other stuff.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: Rush Franklin is a great party! Almost all student on campus goes to Franklin when there is a UNC victory. Halloween party on Franklin is great too!

4 College Junior

Party Scene: I don' go to that many parties.

4 College Junior

Academics: Professors are really nice and helpful. There are some easy classes but there are some with heavy workload, but one can learn a great deal from them.

5 College Junior

Diversity: UNC is very acceptance toward minority. It is a really diversed campus.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: We have an ENORMOUS amount of school spirit at UNC. Basketball is definitely the biggest thing at UNC, and not going to lie, it is hard to get to go to the games. BUT getting to go even twice in a season is worthwhile! And rushing Franklin after a huge win is so much fun. Basketball is what we're known for, but it isn't everything. Our football games are also super fun, and we had an amazing lacrosse season, winning two national championships in two days. All sports at Carolina are great.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: I don' know much about drug usage on campus. I noticed that few students may used marijuana.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I could not imagine myself anywhere else. UNC is amazing. The people are great and there are opportunities for everyone. My professors are super helpful and they want me to succeed. It is easy to approach them if I need help with the curriculum or with a non-related issue to their courses. UNC basketball and football is super hype; rushing Franklin after we beat Dook was an unforgettable experience. It's always a GDTBATH

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I LOVE Carolina! I'm a Tar Heel born I'm a Tar Heel bred and when I die I'm a Tar Heel dead.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Most students studied at UNC can find pretty good jobs.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: It is a safe place to study.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I like my suitemates. It is fun to live on campus. It is easy to go to class and find place to eat.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I don't participate in Greek life.

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.
