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!

4 College Freshman

Weather: Sometimes, there will be a bad day (i.e. rain, jumpy weather, etc.), but on the other days, you can see the sky sporting a very, very Carolina Blue. It just shines down on us as Carolina students. The weather here is very moderate; not too cold, not too hot. When nice weather comes out, everyone is outside and hanging in the Quad or the Pit.

4 College Freshman

Administration: I believe that the strictness is not too bad. Coming from a Catholic high school, UNC's strictness is not too far from the strictness of my high school. It's a little more lenient, but not too lenient where chaos is happening. It is the perfect balance of strict and leniency.

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: This school has all the facilities that make it so great. You have gyms, libraries, many resources, etc. The campus is fantastically beautiful. It also gives off a "homey" feeling, like you belong here. Everything here sets this school apart from any other school. It is the Carolina Way to make UNC the place to be.

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: UNC's student life is incredible. You can go meet a person and be friends with them your entire life. The Pit is where everyone meets up. The dining services are great to meet people. The gyms are very user friendly. The libraries are perfect for studying. I have not heard once that someone hated it here at UNC. It just goes to show how much of a Tar Heel family that we are. We bleed Carolina Blue here, and there is no joke in that. It is everything that I've ever wanted in a college.

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Restaurants are available at the residents fingers. Delivery or pickup is right around the corner when you are at Carolina. Great restaurants on Franklin St. which is the most popular attraction when you come to Carolina. All the restaurants are worth a bite to eat.

5 College Senior

Local Area: Amazing campus. Great environment that is warm and welcoming. The students here are fabulous and are always helping each other. Making friends is not hard at all, and lets not forget about our awesome football and basketball team. The games are filled with fun, excitement, and competiveness. It is the best school on the planet.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I am a junior here at Carolina and as a Biology major I am surrounded by professors, teaching assistants and fellow students who are each and everyone of them their own unique scientist. With different interests and reasons behind their passion for science. The classrooms and lab envirnments are well organized and modern along with a curriculum that is constantly being reviewed and updated. These criteria are absolutely needed for flourishing scientific programs, of which Carolina has many.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Carolina has very high acedemic standards and I am proud to be a part of such an excellent school. It is easy to see the dedication of our students. Our overall thirst for knowledge and acedemic success it visable even if you spend just a day on campus. In the classrooms, the library and even spread over the grounds, when the weather permits, you will find carolina students studying, discussing a broud range of subjects with genuine interest and truely enjoying their education.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Carolina has a well-known reputation in the state for having very attractive females and I agree with this for the most part. I think we also have an attractive male component to our student body. In general, I think that carolina is composed of bright, well dressed and predominantly good natured students from all over the country and all over the would. I believe that the beauty of our students is matched only by the beauty of our campus and the diversity of culture and hertitage makes it that much more amazing to be a part of.

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Incredible. Literally everything about the campus facilities is great. There's a lot of room, both inside and out.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: This place is very safe. I've never run into any problems with anything, although if you go off campus to Franklin Street, you will likely encounter some strange, creepy people.

4 College Freshman

Weather: I'm from the beach, so I'm used to the sun and warm temperature. It does get cold and dreary at times, but it's nothing you can't handle for sure. Besides, the cold weather is sort of refreshing.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Some people say the rooms are too small, but if you pick the right residence halls, you'll have plenty of room.

South campus is MUCH more social, and there's always stuff happening. South campus dorms are a further walk to class, but it's barely noticeable. Ram's gym and dining hall are really close too, as are Kenan Stadium and the Dean Dome.

Stick to Hardin/Craige North for dorms. They're the two newest, have the biggest rooms on South campus, have internal hallways, and you have to share your bathroom with only one other room instead of 3. Koury/Horton are older versions of basically the same set up. But it's easier to be social in internal hallways.

Athletics: All of the varsity teams are competitive. Intramural is good fun as well. The gyms and other facilities on campus are great too.

You wont find a better rivalry than the Duke/UNC basketball rivalry anywhere.

3 College Freshman

Majors: The system is above average, but I still feel as though I'm not challenged much. Professors are good, but not excellent.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: Chapel Hill is gorgeous and there is always plenty to do.

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.
