Off-Campus Dining: Would like to see more student discounts and delivery. Lots of good options, just nowhere to park.

Campus Housing: Half of the housing is on the North side of campus which is great since classes are so close, but horrible if you ever need to go to south campus. Also okay are the amenities. This is a very old campus with not a lot of new/ updated housing facilities.

Administration: There are some very serious consequences for illegal drug and alcohol use as well as violation of the honor code, but these seem to be the most serious things.

Majors: Getting into the College of Arts and Science is very easy. However, be careful applying from out of state because UNC requires 82% of their students to be local. Show a lot of leadership and extracurriculars in high school. AP scores don't matter as much, but AP classes do.

Diversity: Plenty of backgrounds. Almost everyone here has a story to tell. People are mostly accepting here.

Overall Experience: The professors I have had so far are all very great. They are open to anything you say (except for a few physics professors who are slightly stuck up)

Campus Food: I don't personally like the dining halls too much but there are plenty of variety. The smallest meal plan with some flex dollars works wonders. There are also plenty of free food.

Majors: My major currently is physics but I am thinking of going into Biomedical Engineering. The former is not the best but also not the worst; the latter is very new and basically the only engineering major on campus, but it has been getting a lot of attention. Most pure science classes are pretty tough with a lot of work. Students with science majors have the lowest GPAs, even if they work hard, but there are an amazing array of opportunities for them, whether they be clubs, internships, jobs, etc. The professors are great and helpful, though often you have to go out of your way to talk to a teacher from a lecture class.

Majors: I have not participated in internships but I have a part-time job here at a research laboratory. Finding jobs are not difficult but people tend to get picky about them. There are many opportunities for internships, a decent portion of which is paid.

Local Area: So far it has been nice. It is a big change from where I used to live but is very easy to get used to.

Off-Campus Dining: Franklin Street has plenty of dining options. Durham and Carborro are only a few miles away and there are good restaurants there, too.

Scholarships: One of the main reasons I came to this school. UNC is very embracive of all financial backgrounds.

Off-Campus Housing: I have not lived off campus yet, but it is definitely not hard to find apartments. The prices are usually less expensive than on campus housing.

Campus Housing: The janitors here are very nice but it is hard to enforce cleanliness when my suite mates are mostly slobs. There aren't a lot of opportunities to save energy, especially electricity. The dorms are pretty nice and spacious, depending on the residence building. Ehringhaus, Craige, Hinton James, and Morrison are all pretty great. Mailing is fairly convenient and the study rooms and kitchens on each floor are fine. The laundry rooms get dirty easily, but it's not difficult to wash and dry your clothes. The social atmosphere is quite nice, but don't expect quiet during the day, even in your rooms.

Party Scene: Partying is somewhat big here, but they are all relatively low-key. There are many opportunities for social gatherings.

Athletics: There is a lot of team spirit on campus. Many people I know are on some sort of an athletic team.

Greek Life: There are a few party houses around here but they are actually very far from the freshmen dorms. You have to sometimes go out of your way to party as an undergraduate student.

Local Area: Chapel Hill is quintessential college town. The next town over, Carrboro, is a fun, free-spirited, hipster town. Highly recommend spending time there.

Off-Campus Dining: I come from a small town so I might not be the best to judge, that being said I love all the different places to eat on Franklin and Rosemary street!

Campus Housing: The dorms are very small. In the freshmen dorms there is one shower, one toilet, and two sinks for eight people. The building is very clean though, and the classrooms and libraries are amazing.

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.
