3 College Junior

Diversity: There are very many different groups, races, and creeds on campus. However, there is a predominant atmosphere, even among the differing backgrounds. The students tend to most all be smart, active, topical, and open-minded, as this is known mostly as a liberal school and area. It is a great atmosphere , though.

Campus Quality: The professional schools that work in collaboration with our undergrads often provide majors that students may apply for that will qualify them to work in their selected fields. As a student in the School of Public Health, I feel as though this program provides me with a unique perspective on the field that I never would have gotten anywhere else.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: The student union was recently updated and provides an amazing study place, place to hang out with your friends, or even grab food. Additionally, a plethora of libraries find there home on our campus, so there is always somewhere to study.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The Chemistry department is fantastic. Like any department, there are good teachers and bad teachers, but overall they are great. I receive emails weekly updating me on various opportunities and with information about advising.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Everyone is nice for the most part. There are some clicks but most peope will be friendly to you. A lot of the people are relatively attractive with good fashion and style sense. There are lots of gatherings in which to meet new people and most welcome that sort of thing.

Off-Campus Housing: There are many apartmeny complexes around campus. And they vary in price and style. However, the Chapel Hill area is a rather up-scale area so the average montly rent is over $550 a month with a split lease (you pay for your bed and bath and the shared common area and your roommates pays the same for their bed and bath and the shared common area).

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Chapel Hill is filled with people who put on a fashion show every day, and then there are those who wear sweats and pajamas everyday, and then there are the people in jeans, jeggings, and tshirts. we don't judge you based on what you wear. where what makes you comfortable. wear your favorite color everyday or your favorite pair of jeans. haha there are so many different styles walking around campus everyday it's quite amazing. and then socially we have a great student body. we smile at each other and wave. however be on the lookout for the bikers, they generally have to squeeze through tight places in the crowded pathways and it's inconvenient to have to manuever around them. but they are nice and will say excuse me.

Transportation: on campus we have buses that will take all over campus with varying routes that are easy to learn. the buses are clean, the bus drivers are really nice and will help you figure out what street you need to get to, generally they're unfamiliar with building names. the only problem is that in the morning buses get very crowded around 10 because generally that's when the majority of the student body starts their day.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: I think Carolina has really great facilities and is one of the most beautiful campuses in the country, especially in the Spring. Many of the buildings are being updated constantly to keep up with new technology.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is definitely on campus, but it doesn't dominate it. They through parties and occasionally make campus news but its usual because they have broken a rule or regulation.

5 College Sophomore

Transportation: In the city of Chapel Hill there is a bus system which is completely free and very convenient. It goes at least close to basically everywhere in the city and runs very often.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: One of my favorite things about Chapel Hill is the local restaurant scene. There are lots of different and delicious options for Mediterranean, Indian, Mexican, American, etc. and nearly everywhere is decently priced for broke students.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: The campus is the best and it is nice looking around and knowing you are at one of the most beautiful campus in America

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are good restaurant on Franklin street and new one are opening up like Mellow Mushroom

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The ratio is a struggle, it really is. Unless you want a frat boy who (probably) doesn't want a relationship anyway, the supply of decent straight guys is pretty low. Seems like the guys here are really concerned with fitting in, more so than other places. They are pretty nice to look at though.

Health & Safety: UNC is very safe, but lately crime has been rising, mainly on Franklin though. With the closing of bars in Durham, many people have been flocking to UNC for the great bar scene. Security is tight and Chapel Hill is safe, but during the late late nights it can get a little sketchy. They are working hard to clean it up though so it will hopefully improve

3 College Senior

Drug Safety: Alcohol is fairly visible especially in fraternities, but if you are a guy, don't even try to get in. Greek life holds most of the parties and controls most of the social scene. The students who don't go Greek end up sitting in their dorms for dorm parties or walking distances to "off campus" parties. Many underage students have fake ids to go to bars.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: There is a large variety of of-campus housing, including houses and apartments. New apartments are also being built. Rent can be expensive, but it is also easy to find cheap places. I have never had trouble with my landlord and parking is included for me.

Weather: Personally I don't like it even though I'm from Durham. I really like cold weather. However, the weather is average

Administration: I don't know how to rate this. There are strict policies for things like alcohol and drug use. However, it isn't enforced too strictly unless it's out in the public. I know a lot of people who drink and do drugs in their rooms but are never caught because it really isn't sought out for unless noticed.

Campus Food: I think the food is pretty good and there is a large selection to choose from. There are always healthy options and a few unhealthy options like pizza or hamburgers. But all of us need a hamburger every once in a while. We have days where less meat is used, and foods that come from sustainable farms are used often.

Scholarships: I've received a good amount of financial aid but it's been difficult and a tiresome process. I've had a hard time keeping up with all the forms and the different deadlines. I find i helpful going in and speaking with people who know the ins and and outs of everything.

Campus Housing: Housing is great and there are tons of options to choose from! South campus is where most first-tears live. It's a 15 min walk to campus but the dorms are larger and newer and the exercise is good for you! North campus has the historic dorms which are smaller but closer to class, mostly upperclassmen live here. The RHA (residence hall association) is a group of student leaders that works to make campus life fun and enjoyable and they do a really great job!

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: Because UNC has such different tuition for out of state vs in state students it's almost impossible for in state students to receive scholarships. However UNC does have a very good ROTC program and I know several in state students who've paid for school that way.

Campus Quality: UNC has amazing facilities that allow students to pursue any and all interests they have. They offer a diverse course load and tons of leadership opportunities. First-years are able to get involved in research and I know many who have started their own clubs!

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.
