Our campus is very diverse, however, sometimes self-segregation occurs as students gravitate those who they are more comfortable around. UNC is constantly pushing diversity and the drive works. There are various programs and trainings about diversity. These events facilitate conversations that people rarely have about diversity regarding economic background, political beliefs, religion, ethicity/race, and sexual orientation. The center of our campus is called the Pit and it's a free speech zone. Everybody may not agree with everyone else, but the students at UNC respect diversity of opinion. One example of an impactful program that I've had the opportunity to participate in is called Carolina United. Carolina United is a 1-week program that pushes the 60+ students it accepts to lean into discomfort regarding all of the various means of diversity. It focuses on diversity and leadership. Carolina United was extremely powerful and was enlightening. Afterwards, I better understood peers that might not share my same beliefs or come from different backgrounds, and challenged myself to always keep an open mind. All of the scholars from the program proceeded to implement events on campus that emphasized the awareness of diversity. Diversity is the Carolina Way.

Includes North and South Campus but We're One Community – I have thoroughly enjoyed living in the resident halls, which is why I have not and am not planning to living off campus during my college career. This is my third year residing on campus and I have been beyond satisfied with UNC's living conditions. We feature two types of resident halls: suite style and hall style. Suite style halls are units containing four rooms, typically two students per room, and one bathroom. Suite style resident halls are found on South Campus. Hall style residencies include one large bathroom that is shared by many students in that hall. Hall style is typically found on North Campus. The difference between North and South Campus is that South Campus is further away from the academic buildings while North Campus is right next to them in proximity. I have enjoyed staying in both. Within both campuses there are more renovated resident halls and less renovated halls, but I would recommend staying on South campus as a first-year. South campus is a lot more social where everybody is meeting everybody; it is a very lively. North campus consists of more upperclassmen that are more established in the university, and it's a little quieter. Even though South campus is further from the academic buildings, there are various buses that are constantly running, so living further is still convenient. The costs are the same with all the resident halls, it only differentiates if the student wants a single instead of a double. I would recommend looking at our housing website for more information at housing.unc.edu

The weather really doesn't affect my campus experience too much because the weather isn't too extreme in North Carolina.

Parking at my school can be considered such a hassle especially for sporting events because the lack thereof.
College Senior 2011-12-13T03:14:56Z
The facilities on my school's campus are very orderly and are kept up nicely. There are so many resources and programs occurring on a day-to-day basis that there really isn't much to complain about. The gyms are of very high quality. The student union could stand some more eatery places but, it is very spacious and good for study breaks.

No Pressure to Drink – I am surprised at the number of people I've met who don't drink or party. However, there is a large portion of students who do. If you aren't comfortable with it though, no one will judge you.

Basketball Is Great – Of course, Carolina is known for its basketball. I love the school spirit that comes along with a winning team. However, it would be nice if our football team was a bit better.

Health & Safety:
I hate to say it, but I have felt unsafe at UNC before. The campus police are constantly busy all over campus, but I still feel unsafe walking in the dark.

MASSIVE Workload – I was excited when I realized I was accepted into UNC Chapel Hill, because I knew that it as a great accomplishment. Shortly after I experienced the workload, I regretted my decision to stay here. The professors are very arrogant and just give way too much work.

Admissions was great I came in as a transfer but was upset that they did not accept all my credits. Therefore I had to start as a second semester freshman. I didn't like that at all but i am bout to graduate with 2 degrees in less than 5yrs.

The schools policy is great. i assume that's why there is so little problems with drugs. Alcohol is used by students but watched very closely by campus police. there is not a liquor store in town but the restaurants sell it as long as you have your I.D..

Off Capmus Dining – The town of Pembroke has the 2 best seafood houses around there are many fast food places. But the best of all are the small town cafe/restaurants they all serve southern home cooked meals. that you will not find no where else.

Frat Court – There's always something to do at Carolina. Nobody is pressured to drink, but Frat Court is a big party scene for underclassmen. Alcohol is always available, but there are definitely other options too.

Addicting Cookies! I'm not too picky so I really don't mind food in the dining halls. Omelets at breakfast are always delicious and the cookies are addicting!

Health & Safety:
So Many Trees! I've never felt unsafe on campus during the day. However, there are so many trees around campus that I get a little tense walking home late at night. But there are so many blue lights on campus and you can always call SafeWalk, which will send someone to walk you home.

Attractive Academic Programs – My school's co-op program has provided me with work experience that is much more impressive than any other college grads I know.you can chooses whatever you like

We have Sugarland (it appeared on the Food Network). We're the oldest public institution in the country. We have a really good Public Health, Journalism, Business etc. school...

It depends where you live. I definitely suggest living in a LLC-living learning community. There are small dorms and big dorms, apartment style, suite style and hall style dorms as well as all female dorms. There are a lot of groups on campus that work to make your living experience great such as RHA, community government, RA's etc. I hear that South campus si more social than North campus, but I think it really depends on where you live and who you're around. Suite style dorms are spacious. Living learning communities help you get to know your hallmates and create a sense of community and involvement on the campus. Hojo/Hinton James is considered the worst place to live (on South campus...or it may be a campus wide thing), but most of the people there really bond. Big dorms have nice kitchens and other facilities and resources (like Morrison). South Campus is mostly freshman and really social. North campus is close to all the academic buildings and Franklin street. Granville Towers is expensive, has it's own dining hall, study rooms, pool and bascially looks like a hotel and is close to Frat Court and Franklin street (well it's off of Franklin Street). Housing depends on what type of experience you're looking for.

UNC Chapel Hill has a lot of diffrent libraries. There's plenty of places to exercise (multiple gyms, recreation centers like the SRC-student recreation center). Most students on campus are really conciencious about their health and exercising. UNC does a good job of promoting good health, but I think it's mostly student's own mentality about being healthy. Plenty of buildings on campus and resources available, you just need to know where to go and who to ask or how to search on the school's website.

I'm in the Assured Admissions program for Business and it has been an amazing experience and I have learned so much in such a short amount of time. I barely have any concerns because the program coordinators are showing us the ropes, teaching us how to write resumes, how to do interviews, and how to network. The program is phenomenal.

I was really lucky to get enough scholarship to cover most of my expenses. Along with some outside scholarships, I am attending college free! Carolina offers a great number of scholarship ones that you are considered for just through the regular application so you don't need a separate app!
College Junior 2011-10-14T16:21:53Z
I rarely need to walk from North to South campus because of the wonderful transportation system. They've really created it with the students in mind. NextBus is very accurate and one shouldn't need to wait for more than 10 min for the bus.
College Junior 2011-10-14T16:20:16Z
Internship Opportunity – There are lots of internship opportunities and the school sends out lots of emails about them especially to juniors and seniors. However, everyone has access to networking nights where recruiters come and can take resumes and talk to students who are interested in an internship.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
