    UNC is a great place to study while being surrounded by interesting, intelligent people and a variety of clubs and activities. Every day I wake up knowing that I'll go to bed knowing something new. Classes are tough, but you're really pushed out of your comfort zone not only academically, but also socially. This school has shaped me to become a more social person, and I'm so proud of that. Go Heels! ...Continue reading

    The university is one of the top public universities in the country for a reason. Solid athletics, academics, entertainment, housing, the works.

    UNC is really the place to be. It truly is an amazing school. The environment is great and there is something for every interest.

    This school just is not fun. Some of the classes here are interesting and challenges you intellectually. However, if you plan to major in Communication Studies, it is best to not pursue it here.

    It requires a lot of effort to make the campus work for you to the best of your ability. The student culture and school pride is incredible. The social scene is fun but very Greek-exclusive. The food is pretty good depending on the day. The student body is extremely supportive of each other, and the faculty are reputable and geniuses at their crafts. Its always a #GDTBATH! Academics and professors are top notch and the campus is beautiful. ...Continue reading

From furry campus squirrels to world-renowned professors, this is the place to be, and for a relatively low price! ...Continue reading

    Everything I hoped it would be and more. It's well respected, has a lot of course offerings, and fantastic professors. Do not get a meal plan. Living on campus is fun and convenient, but some of the dorms are old and need renovations. The school does very well with sustainability, and has a great STEM program. Non-STEM students feel a little left out. ...Continue reading

    UNC is a dream school for liberal arts and sciences! There are so many opportunities on campus from clubs to research. However, it can be hard to make friends. You definitely have to make the effort to get involved. The dining halls were not good to me and overpriced. I always just went to the Bottom of Lenoir. Get involved, work hard, form friendships, party hard, Carolina is one of the best decisions I've ever made. ...Continue reading
