Professors Are Awesome! The professors at UNC are incredible. They are all so willing to help so that you can do the best possible. I have had several professors who commit to weekly help sessions, in addition to their office hours and class time. The professors here are very accessible. The academics are also superb. You learn so much in such a short period of time. Professors are experts in their fields and love sharing their knowledge with you. Ask and you shall receive!

Chapel Hill Police Dept. Is All Over the Place – We're drinking and partying, but the cops bust parties like it's their job. Weed is everywhere, and you can find coke, but it's not as prevalent. There isn't too much of anything else. The Alcohol Law Enforcement (ALE) try to bust parties AND underage students in bars. We only have one club, and it tends to fill up with tons of drunk freshmen and sophomores who can't get into the bars.

Depends on What You Want – If you want to be close to bars and pay a reasonable (read: relatively expensive) price, the off-campus housing is not very nice. If you're willing to pay top-dollar and live in Warehouse, it's a lot nicer. As you venture further from campus, the apartment gets nicer and cheaper. Houses can vary, but if you're close to campus, it gets expensive.

Small Town – Chapel Hill is definitely a college town. It is small, very liberal, with one main street: Franklin. The campus and town are very beautiful and offer things to do. The community loves the university, students, and sports. We're ten minutes away from Duke, half an hour from NC State, forty-five minutes from Elon, and an hour and a half from Wake Forest.

Good Mix of People – Good mix of genders, races, ethnicities, orientations, etc. Everyone can find their niche and everyone can interact with many types of people.

The facilities are good, but living off campus makes them inconvenient for me.

Health & Safety:
I Feel Safe Most of the Time – I might not feel safe walking alone at night in some places on/around campus. But these times are few and far between.

Atmosphere on Campus Is Great – When walking around campus during the normal class hours, the whole school seems to walk by one area at least once a day. You can sit in one spot all day and see almost every student enrolled here. I love seeing my fellow students enjoying our beautiful campus every day.

Basketball Team Support – I love how our students support our basketball team even when they aren't having a great season. The school does a great job of keeping the students involved and informed of athletic events.

Freshmen Dorms Need to Be Updated – I was lucky my freshmen year and was put in the best possible dorm for freshmen. The typical dorms for freshmen are rundown and out of date and far away from the most important part of campus, school buildings.

Not Too Bad – They have rules and if you blatantly disregard them the punishments can be pretty tough, but as long as you aren't out of control they don't go looking to punish you

Crab Shoot – I personally enjoyed both dorms I lived in, but I also enjoyed living in an apartment for my last 2 years. The dorms that have just been renovated or are on North Campus tend to be nicer, but the South Campus dorms are great for meeting people if you are an underclassmen.

Tons of Options – There are tons of options but it all depends on how far you want to walk to get to them...
Recent Alumnus 2010-03-19T02:24:59Z
Lots of Options – There is a lot of variety- lots of varieties of ethnic foods as well as a lot of cheap stuff with nice restaurants to spike in once in a while

Very Diverse – Carolina is an excellent school and presents many opportunities for students. It is a great place for people who know what they want to do for the rest of their lives but also for those who are still undecided.

Bus Is the Best – the buses are the easiest ways i think i mean there on time usually and they come back pretty often so i really like taking the bus and campus is so big that it makes traveling to farther away classes very easy
Recent Alumnus 2010-03-19T01:36:32Z
Buses are convenient and free but sometimes unreliable. The buses that go to Raleigh are notoriously unreliable.

While labs and printing are easily accessible, there isn't wireless internet in dorms. We have to plug into our internet and the cord gets in the way.

Athletic Teams Are Exciting to Watch – compared to other schools, our athletics program is exceptional. We have many talented teams that do well which increases school spirit

All centers on campus are clean and pleasing to the eye. The libraries have ample space to study or lounge, the gyms are slightly small but have a good amount of equipment. The student union is slightly bare but clean and comfortable.

Not That Great – there is not much need for a car on campus, and since I don't have one I am not very aware of any problems with the parking situation, but I hear it is expensive and very hard to find parking

A Myriad of Opportunities – I think that there is a lot of diversity here as far as race goes, relative to most parts of North Carolina. There are fewer people from different countries and out-of-staters are coming to UNC less as tuition increases. There is a multitude of opportunities on campus for people of differing political or spiritual beliefs.

A Fair Amount to Do Here – Chapel Hill is a relatively small town with little activity during the weekends. Most students are in-state and thus go home fairly often. Decent shopping is accessible with a car or bus. Locals treat students with respect and kindness.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
