Academics: UNC is very very challenging, but manageable once you get the hang of college and find your niche. It's a bit too big for its own good, so you must fight for personal attention. Many freshman and sophomore level classes are huge, and a good half of your professors will never have a clue who you are.

Guys & Girls: Being in a sorority, most of my interactions with males on campus have been with those in a fraternity. Though there are exceptions, most of the guys on campus are not interested in pursuing a dating relationship. Most of my friends have boyfriends, but they almost all go to different colleges.

Athletics: Football games and basketball games will make you bleed Carolina blue, and it's a great feeling to grab your fellow Tarheels and sing "Hark the Sound" after a win. Also, the correct spelling is "Dook."

Campus Quality: SRC gym is much nicer than Ram's head, though it is farther away. Wilson library is pretty on campus tours, but it's one of those things you'll probably never use ever. Davis is outdated and depressing, though it is large and efficient for the size of the student body.

Off-Campus Dining: Chapel Hill, Carrboro and Durham have a huge selection of restaurants. There are many late night options for after bars/parties, as well as many upscale restaurants for fancier dinners out. Top of the Hill and Spanky's are popular with tourists and freshmen.

Scholarships: Scholarships are mostly need based, though there are merit ones available. The average student is not very likely to qualify for these however, as UNC is incredibly competitive.

Greek Life: Greek life is bigger at UNC than at most other UNC system schools or those in the ACC, but it doesn't completely dominate campus. There is somewhat of a divide between Greeks and non-Greeks, but there isn't really a stigma of dating or associating with those who aren't Greek if you are, and vice-versa.

Local Area: In the heart of downtown. Very small city. Parking is absolutely horrible. Small town with lots of local restaurants and shops but not too far from bigger cities durham and raleigh

Scholarships: Once the package is delivered, the amount is fair. Takes several calls to the financial aid office to get things rolling. Lots of random forms with very similar information to Fasfa.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Classes are difficult, assignments and tests are graded harshly. Yet some people find it easy to make As and Bs while going out and partying. Overall I feel like no one else is in my no money/academically struggling/not constantly wanting to party boat.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Awesome choices and places to participate and great varsity teams to enjoy as well!

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.
