UNC challenges you to take advantage of all the opportunities available, both inside and outside of the classroom. It has such a collaborative and motivating community of faculty, staff, and students.

The sense of inclusivity and belonging at Carolina makes it what it is. The amount of opportunities make it so that there is a place for everyone. The academics are rigorous, but it is comforting to know that everyone there is as motivated and hard-working as you. Students are the best of the best without being elitist; the student body is diverse, approachable, and determined.
