4 College Freshman

Technology: Most people are granted their own lenovo computers with the option of paying a little extra for a macbook. Wifi can be found throughout campus and repair services are easily accessible

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: I think carolinas atsomphere is wonderful, but crouded. There are a lot of undergraduates and I think carolina handles its large student body very well. I think a student who has just arrived at UNC has to work to make the atmosphere smaller by making social connections and finding a niche that makes carolina "their" school. That work will be worth it.

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: People say that the Greek life runs UNC but that is not all true. They have parties like every other college does. Most people see Greek students as snobs and unlikable. I personally don't see a big deal with them.

3 Recent Alumnus

Technology: computers are mostly PCs on campus. there are plenty of computer labs and printing labs. The network is fast, so you can use your laptop anywhere on campus.

5 Recent Alumnus

Campus Quality: student life on Carolina's campusf is so fun and beautiful. The architecture is old, southern, and charming. The athetics are really great! There a whole bunch of libraries, stores, green space, walkabiity is great. It is my favorite college campus.

5 Recent Alumnus

Campus Quality: There are great opportunities to be a part of the campus experience- sporting events, clubs, and academics. It is a community that is like no other, and once you are a Carolina student, it is a lifetime connection to the school, other students, and alumni.

Administration: They are not strict about drinking in public, especially on football game days. The fraternities usually have parties and bands outside.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Varsity sports at UNC is huge, especially basketball, obviously. We have wonderful training and workout facilities. IM sports are pretty huge, too, because anyone can play. We have some pretty diverse ones.The gyms are pretty close to dorms. UNC athletics is superior.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Athletics at UNC are great. You always hear how each team works hard to achieve a win or a national championship. There is great school spirit as well. Even when a team is not doing so well, the fans stay true to there team. Students always wear their Carolina blue to sporting events or just to class, which shows how much they really love their school. Although the sports teams are all recognized in a respectable and noticeable manner, I do believe the dance team should be recognized as an athletic team as well because they work just as hard as any other team. They get hurt and do not have personal trainers and they also compete but the school does not sponsor them in any way. They sponsor the cheerleaders but they do not no even compete. They stay later after exams in the fall to practice for competitions and the school still will not provide them with a dance studio or reasonable practice area. I feel the school should recognize the dance team more because they too are a great aspect to basketball and football games and the fans also enjoy and respect what they do.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Nightlife is for all students on campus. There are all kinds of parties that students can go to whether it is on franklin street or a house party. The only thing that brings this grade down to B is the transportation systems. Most of the time the buses stay crowded with drunk people trying to get back to main campus, and the bus should be bigger.

4 College Senior

Technology: Wifi is omnipresent around campus, and while I would like to see more Mac computers in the Health Sciences Library, there are plenty to go around on those days I choose not to bring my laptop.

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There are many options for off-campus dining. Allen and Sons BBQ was my first Carolina BBQ experience and I give it 2 thumbs up! There are several options on Franklin Street, and Carrboro's Weaver Street Market and bi-weekly farmers market are personal favorites to purchase groceries.

5 College Senior

Diversity: I am in the school of Public Health, and everyone is incredibly accepting and open of the fact that people have different sexual orientations. There are lots of classes offered (Human Sexuality is the first that comes to mind) and the LGBTQ student group is active in making the entire Gillings School of Global Public Health a safe space.

4 College Senior

Scholarships: I filled out a financial status form through my department and they provided me with available funding. Simple as that! Furthermore, the financial aid office is EXTREMELY helpful in answering questions and helping students make sense of such a complicated process.

4 College Senior

Weather: The humidity in August is terrible, but otherwise its great!

5 College Freshman

Diversity: This college has brought me into contact with so many people from different places all over the world. I don't know exactly how these people feel, if they are accepted or not, but I have never seen anyone being put down because of their ethnic/racial diversity, economic background, political beliefs, religion, and/or sexual orientation.

5 College Freshman

Local Area: There is no place better to go to watch an awesome sports team and be united with thousands of people who love Carolina just as much! Chapel Hill has many different places to eat for anyone. There's Chinese, Japanese, Mexican, Pizza, anything you want, all on one street.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: There's definitely a good mix of people here. I feel all races are represented on this campus and no one should feel excluded or uncomfortable because of their race and not fitting in.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: So I'm from NY, and coming down here, I was told I'd experience some Southern hospitality...and that was !00% right. The guys here are (for the most part) very courteous and polite and always hold the door for you. Both the girls and guys are athletic and into looking good. People take pride in their appearances. The accent isn't hard to get used to but if you're not from here it'll take a little while to get used to.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: There are definitely a lot of things to do around campus, but sometimes I wish the town was a little bit larger. Franklin Street is great for food and shopping, but after a while it gets old. However, we do have the benefit of two large schools being so close (NC State and Duke) and events involving either of those schools makes the atmosphere here much more exciting.

3 College Sophomore

Technology: PC/Macs are all up-to-date in labs/libraries. Wireless connection speed is decent. You don't necessarily need a personal computer but it certainly is more convenient.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Varsity sports are huge here, especially basketball. There are great facilities, and even the club sports are very competitive. Plus, there are tons of intramurals (that include EVERYTHING, not kidding, we even have a quidditch team) that anyone can partake in. The student section, Carolina Fever, also rewards students for going to sporting events, so those tend to be crazy and SO much fun.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I've only been to a couple of frats, and they have been fun. you HAVE to know somebody to get in though if you are a guy, hence the lower grade.

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.
