3 College Freshman

Academics: Some very good teachers, but at a school like UNC, it should be all!

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There is a high usage of drugs and alcohol on campus. However, there is not a lot of peer pressure to try it.

4 College Freshman

Majors: Basically any bachelor degree there isn't a process you just take the classes. But for some schools like the business school you apply your sophomore year and standards are really tough. You need to have like a 3.6 gpa. GPA and extra curricular activities are the most important factor for admissions. Tips for admission would include just work hard in your classes, and if you apply to the business school or another school like it dress well for your interview.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: If you want to party in Chapel Hill, you can always find a place. The most popular nights are Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. Any other night will be pretty dead. Frat parties are popular mostly among freshmen, and everyone else goes to bars.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: The academics at UNC are unparalleled. The professors are great, all passionate about the classes they teach. Class sizes vary, but professors always have office hours you can attend. The coolest thing about UNC is the specific nature of the classes--they're not general and boring. School may be tough, but it's worth it.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Dining hall food isn't so bad. There are two dining halls on campus, and both have a variety of options. There's always a salad bar and a vegetarian line, and the dessert line is the best! Unfortunately, the unhealthy food is exponentially better than the healthy food, but it is easy to eat a variety of foods that can keep you running. Weekend brunch at Rams is the best meal of the week!

5 College Sophomore

Majors: The process for getting into most majors is pretty easy--I just declared my double major in Comm and History, and that was that. I found it pretty easy to find classes for these majors, mostly because they're pretty open and laissez-faire as long as you get the requirements.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I currently don't have a meal plan but I had one last year. I enjoyed the two main dining halls on campus, Lenoir and Ram's Head. They had plenty of options, including vegetarian and vegan fair. I really liked eating at the other dining options on campus, like Subway, Wendy's, Chick-fil-A, and Alpine Bagels.

4 College Sophomore

Technology: UNC has a ton of computer resources. I frequent two libraries, the Undergraduate Library and Davis Library. Both libraries have extensive computer banks. During exams, it may be hard to find an open computer, but usually there are more than enough available. Most, if not all, students have a laptop, so students often choose to use WiFi.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: On campus transportation and that into the immediate Chapel Hill community is great! UNC has a free bus service with dozens of routes that runs from 7 to 7. If where you're going isn't serviced by a UNC bus, you can pay $2 for a Triangle Transit bus to take you more into Raleigh or Durham. There is a late night bus called the P2P that runs a loop around campus until 3 am. Also the airport is 20 minutes away so getting home is easy as well!

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: The drug scene at UNC isn't huge. Because I am familiar with the Greek System, I've heard of a few people doing hard drugs. Mainly, students here choose drinking over anything else.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Most of the time our weather is great, but sometimes it's not so great. We get a lot of rain in the fall which means you need a rain jacket. The rain is a pain, however, because a lot of times you walk a long way to class. It is also a pain to walk to class when it's really hot because you get to class gross and sweaty. Most of the time it feels good walking to class because it's nice and cool outside.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am personally in a sorority and I love it. The only bad thing is the way non-Greeks view Greek Life. They can be condescending and they think it is frivolous.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: I think that the meal plans are expensive, especially when I normally just eat a salad whenever I go to the dining hall. Also, the food isn't of the best quality and there's not much diversity in what is served on a day to day basis.

3 College Freshman

Weather: The sky is one of my favorite things to look at. It does rain a lot though.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: There are mainly three types of boys but you can find one you like from those. The girls are pretty and smart, duh.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: I feel as everyone is accepted at UNC. Diversity is actually welcome and students look up to the students who have stories to tell!

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The housing process is very simple. The dorms are nice for their age. My only complaint is the condition of the bathrooms in the suite style dorms.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: I guess it's good. I can walk to most places and get the bus for the malls/shopping areas. Sports/recreation is great and cultural activities are open to all students and the community.

4 College Freshman

Technology: Computer labs are OK. Everyone typically has a computer and then need to go somewhere to print if they don't have their own printer.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Varsity sports at UNC are HUGE having won multiple NCAA championships through the years.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Great food, - it's buffet like style, with variety of foods daily.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: There are tons of bus routes to go all over the Chapel Hill/Carborro area. There is another bus system called Triangle Transit that takes you all over the triangle. From 7pm to 3am there's the p2p that takes you from the dorms to Franklin if you don't want to walk late at night. They also have vans to pick you up if you need one.

4 College Freshman

Weather: It always seems like the Carolina Blue sky is nice and bright above the campus. We're far enough down south that the weather is warm, but not so far south that you don't get all the seasons. The fall is especially pretty with all the reds and yellows from all the trees. Of course there are rainy days, but it's not too much. When it's really cold it sucks to walk all over campus, but for some people the 40's aren't too bad.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are tons of options on Franklin Street. There are lots of sit down places as well as bars. There are also places open really late when your out on the weekends. Some are as late as 3am and Time-Out is open 24 hours. Bskis is a really good place to get wraps and Banditios is really cheap and awesome Mexican food. There are a lot of options and once you get on Franklin and you can keep walking toward Carborro. The options seem endless!

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.
