Local Area: Chapel Hill is a beautiful town with a ton of things to do and many different historical sights, many of which are over 200 years old. The town also has many great restaurants, CD stores, bookstores and parks, as well as many other things for a person to spend their time doing.

Academics: The biology major here is pretty strenuous, you have to take a lot of very detailed science courses that can at sometimes be pretty demanding and not very related to what you plan on pursuing after college. The biology program here is pretty top-notch though ranking as one of the better ones in the nation going into medical school or various graduate schools.

Parking: Patrking Is Ok – Although you have to pay for it, parking on campus seems abundant. After 6 it is easy to find a spot on campus. But unless you commute to campus you really don't need a car.

Diversity: Like Attracts Like – There seems to be a lot of diversity at UNC, but the ethnic groups all seem to stick together and there's not a lot of intermingling. Which is kinda sad. I wish I had more Indian friends.

Diversity: One of the things I like about UNC is that we are very accepting of people, and there's a place for everyone.

Academics: Tons of Opportunity – There's always something to do at UNC, and something to learn. There's so many opportunities, it just depends on whether or not you have the initiative to take advantage of them. There are brilliant people here as well who will challenge you to make you a better student. Don't get me wrong, there are derps here as well like at any school, but it's what you make of it. Classes are hard, but not ridiculous and don't have to be the center of your life.

Campus Housing: Dorms vary in their quality, from great choices like Morrison to not so great options such as Craige or Hinton James. The dorms have gotten better as they added more air conditioning, making the worst dorms more liveable. For me, I have always been fortunate with getting good dorms, so I cannot complain.

Off-Campus Dining: Any food you could want is right on Franklin St., which is walkable from the dorms. The food is priced well, which is convenient for college students. Being a college town, the food isn't incredible, but it is good enough and quick, which is good for a busy student.

Academics: Registration Process – Registration can be quick and easy, unless you are trying to get into a popular class. If that is the case, registration can be very stressful and a lot of the time the system is glitchy, making the process even more painful.

Campus Quality: Chapel Thrill – Chapel Hill is a great little college town which I think sets it apart from other schools. Also, the academic prowess that is associated with this school makes the atmosphere contagious for learning. One downfall is the greek life, because I think there is a difference between sororities especially in the south than the ones up north and in the Midwest.

Overall Experience: It's Been Great – As an out of state student, knowing no one coming in, this experience has been great. Initially it was a little overwhelming but now I am very comfortable at my school and have met great friends with whom I have had a lot of fun.

Off-Campus Housing: Still Live on Campus – Not many people move off campus until later in the college career, I've come to realize. I am a freshman who lives on campus and I will live on campus again next year. I don't have much insight into the off campus lifestyle.

Technology: Everyone Has a Laptop – It's required by UNC that each student has a laptop. Wifi is pretty much everywhere (sometimes hard to get it in your dorm room), and there are printers in all the dorms and libraries.

Parking: Parking is vary limited, especially for visitors on weekdays. It is a struggle even to find parking on Franklin Street. The permits are decently expensive, and I saw cops walking away putting tickets on cars on Stadium drive.

Campus Housing: Great Atmosphere – The campus may be large and the walk from south campus up to class is a little daunting sometimes, but otherwise its great! The cafeterias are better compared to other larger universities, and the atmosphere is inspiring for learning and friendliness. The meal plans might not be worth it because I don't eat $10 worth of food when I swipe into the dining hall, but the other option on the flex system are great. Also, There is almost always something fun to do on the weekends.

Campus Housing: Some Awesome Dorms – There are really nice dorms for both freshmen and upperclassmen. A lot of them are new and renovated both in north and south campus. The campus is beautiful and the housing process is pretty easy.

Campus Quality: Gyms and Green Areas – They are really good, there are two gyms and 3 pools. There are also plenty of green areas for people to sit and relax. Also a lot of libraries and places to study in peace. Everything is very clean

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.
