Carolina has a real sense of community that I feel like can't be seen anywhere else. Everyone is there to learn from one another and help each other out in their college careers.

Pretty Nice Experience – I love Carolina and there is honestly no other place i'd rather be. Hard work is rewarded and there are plenty of places to release stress.

Not Too Strict – We are allowed to organize on campus, put up displays, etc. There are many underage drinking parties where no one has ever gotten caught. Although if you do something in the public eye, you do get severely punished.

UNC prides itself on its scenery and beauty, therefore parking is incredibly hard to find and costs a fortune on top of that. Parking is in the 400 dollar range per semester. You don't necessarily need a car on campus, but in reality, upperclassmen are going to want to have a car and at UNC parking is a nightmare.

UNC is all about diversity. They drilled that into my head upon arrival at orientation. As one of the most liberal schools in the nation, UNC teaches acceptance of all ideas, religions, races, sexual orientations, genders, etc. Although it is predominately white, the school does make diversity and acceptance priority.

Franklin Street! Franklin street is where the off campus restaurants are. There are so many options from Asian food to pizza or chicken and burgers. Any craving can be filled, that is if the price is right. Franklin Street can be a little pricey, but it is student friendly for the most part with its deals and late night deliveries.

Weather is hardly ever a problem at UNC. Even if it snows, the most the students ever experience is a two-hour delay. Other days, the weather is nice, though it tends to frequently change between warm and cold.

Housing Fair – Every year the Student Union sponsors a housing fair so that students can find information about popular off-campus apartment complexes without the inconvenience of visiting every single complex (plus free stuff!). However, this fair takes place near the end of the spring semester, so most students have to search for apartments without information from the fair. So it is best to go during your freshman year if you want to live off campus by junior year.

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill gives you the best possible curriculum for your money's worth, but most professors there ensure that by assigning you sleep-depriving homework assignments. Most students do learn the material through this method, however, not as well as they could have on a good night's sleep.

Campus Security for Alchol. This subject is reviewed in the brochure that is sent to prospective students. All doors are locked 24/7 and students must use the key fob for entrance. The campus is policed 24/7 and there are emergency phones for people to call for help.

Greek life is a minor event at UNCG. Perhaps that is due to the very diverse group of students. It is not advertised in the brochure that I recieved.

Great Place to Be – You can find something to do any night of the week. Tons of clubs with tons of things, tons of presentations, free movies, guest speakers, the list goes on, there's something fun for everyone.

Great Sports – Every sport has competitive athletes. I haven't been to any sporting event in which we just got trashed on.

Lots of Available Housing – I don't really know that much about it, since I am a freshman, but I know there are plenty of off-campus housing options, with bus transportation available to campus.

University Buses Are the Way to Go! Having a car is a hassle, don't do it. Buses run regularly and will take you close to anywhere you want to go. You get used to walking too, which isn't a bad thing.

There is a niche for everyone at Carolina, but I would say that the college is dominated by white students. There is a fairly large gay-lesbian community, which adds for diversity. For the most part though, there's a lot of preppy guys and girls that are typically associated with Greek life.

Locally Owned Restaurants With Variety – There are lots of small, affordable restaurants. Many places offer sandwiches, wraps, or pitas that are easy to eat on the go. Several more expensive options are available for a nice night out, giving a good variety of restaurant to choose from.

I dont have a problem with weather. I wish the a/c and heat systems would catch up a bit quicker with the weather changes.

The student parking is incredibly limited and gives students very few choices. The park and ride options are not helpful if you need to get to a job off campus after classes. It leaves you calculating travel time and takes away from time available to work which in this economy is not okay.

Upperclassman Dorms – The options for upperclassmen dorms are much better than for sophomores and juniors. I decided to live off campus sophomore and junior year because I would not get a good slot in the housing process. Also parking for students needs to be more convenient. For example I work off campus and need my car to be close so I can get to work on time and so I end up parking in Rams Head deck and have to pay just so I can get to work on time

The Pit Is the Place to Be – At UNC Chapel Hill, the Pit--or the center of student life in the middle of campus--is definitely the place to be at UNC. On warm March afternoons, clubs, groups, performances, and pit preachers gather round to give everyone a little taste of what college life is all about.

Chapel Hill Is Quaint and Comfortable, and There Are a Lot of Opportunities to Get Out and Do Things. Although Chapel Hill may be too small for some, there are plenty of opportunities to get out here. There are clubs and a variety of affordable restaurants to eat at. If you get bored of Chapel Hill, you can take a bus for $4 round trip to Raleigh or Durham.

Religious Studies Major – I'm a religious studies major. Although I have only taken two classes that contribute to this major so far, I have liked both of them. They have required me to think analytically and write concisely. Both of my professors had multiple books published and are accomplished people in their field.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
