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.

I do not know much about the off housing situation. A lot of the houses are old and in need of renovation. One house I know of has a free standing toilet at the top of the stairs. It's hard to find a houses if you don't know someone. Everyone can always use more parking.

Above Other Schools – lots of school spirit, carolina fever, atheltic facilities are sufficient, athletic teams perform very well overall!

Not Worth the Money – The people in the dining hall try to hard. They put pepper in the mac-and-cheese, onions in the beans, and add too many extras that don't taste good. The only truly good things are the omelets, french fries, and salads (and sometimes the pizza). The food outside the dining hall is actually good which is why I will not be getting a meal plan next year.

Greek life at UNC is fun. Frats throw parties on a regular basis and if you are a girl you have no issues getting in. If you're a boy that is not in the frat you must be on the list.

I love the nightlife UNC offers. There are numerous places for those under 21 to enjoy. There are a few clubs that are 18 and over. And if you do not want to go to the clubs there are always frat parties and house parties for the students to enjoy.

Frats have good parties but if you under 21 your limited only to them, no bars unless your willing to risk a fake.

Health & Safety:
Security on Campus – I've never felt concerned for my safety here at UNC. I feel as if our students are protected well. I personally have never had any interaction with any of the law enforcement.

Printing Labs – Always have my work, never jammed or busy. Basically good!

A Balance of Fun and Study – The school has many opportunities to get involved in diverse projects that suit every interest and goal. UNC is near a great social scene that includes a variety of local restarants, bars/music clubs, and shopping. The academics are challlenging and students have the opportunity to choose a very specific path of study, as well as a very diverse and integrated one.

Many Buses to Many Places – Buses are fairly reliable and on time and there are plenty of them. Routes are plentiful and try to accomodate most off-campus living options and major destination. The cost for local buses is covered in tuition and fairly reasonable. Also, more sustainable buses are being used, which is a great option to protect the environment and modernize the system

The computer labs are always packed before classes, at lunch time, and remain relatively busy at night. WIFI is reliable and fast. The priniting system is unpredictable and printers often jam and have other frustrating problems.

Ups and Down – This year the Greek System has gotten a bad rap, but there are always going to be those few bad eggs that ruin it for everyone! Many sororities (more than fraternities) are respectable and abide (mostly) by the guidelines set forth. They aren't all the typical "sorority girl" and "frat guy"

A Bit Expensive – There are a lot of restaurants near campus, but the ones I've seen don't offer many student discounts or specials past the beginning of the fall semester, and few are particularly inexpensive. Franklin Street has a lot of dine-in locations, but few places on or near the street will get you a meal for $5 or less. There are some favorites, namely lunch at Sutton's grill.

Coming from a Catholic school, UNC is much more diverse than what I was used to. There are many ethnicities and people from all different economic backgrounds and sexual orientations.

English Major- Freshman Experience – Since I'm just ending my freshman year, I haven't experienced too much of the program so far. However, what I have seen is a diverse English curriculum offered, and have already received many mass-emails to English majors about internship/job opportunities, workshops, and writing contests. It seems as though there is a lot of opportunity within the English department, both academically and in assistance with job placement.

Guys & Girls:
Guys and Girls – The guy to girl ratio is absurd... 60 to 40. So, there aren't that many guys... and with regards to relationships, it seems like most of them are interested in hooking up rather than have something long term.

Living on campus is definitely a plus. Unfortunately, it is very costly and if you get south campus, it is a rather long walk to where classes are. However, I would much rather have campus housing than live at home.
If you like to party and go out at night, you'll definitely love Chapel Hill. There's always something going on and there are plenty of options.

Rams Head Dining Hall – I don't go there often, so I'm not as tired of the food as people that go there everyday...
I like their vegetarian options. They usually have very good combinations.
Their breakfast is pretty good too. Although its always pretty much the same, its actually one of my favorite meals at the dining hall.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
