Guys & Girls:
The female to male ratio is 60:40. On average, the girls are attractive and there is a great party scene.
College Sophomore 2013-09-25T16:46:04Z
There is a great greek scene and the university is very academically strong.
College Sophomore 2013-09-25T16:45:17Z
Student life on campus is great. There are excellent facilities.

There are three major libraries that all provide computer access. There are also various computer labs in some classroom buildings. The network on campus is strong and each student receives 40 dollars of free printing per year.

NC weather is notoriously up and down. The summer is really hot and HUMID. The winter doesn't get ridiculously cold, but it often fluctuates between mild and cold.

South Campus dorms are OK, but not close to classes. North campus is better, but it is very difficult for freshmen to live there. Shuttles run around campus which helps out a lot. Amenities vary by dorm, but everyone has access to a bathroom, kitchen, lounge, laundry room and printer (although they may not exist in every dorm or floor). Cost is $5600/year for a double, which is pretty pricy, but living close to classes is worth it. Freshman dorms tend to be more social, although the community director and RA's will occasionally host social events.

If you want to live near campus you are certainly going to be paying for it. The farther off campus you go the better the pricing, but the quality drops as does access to transportation.

Chapel Hill is a college town, and unless you have transportation you're basically stuck on campus and Franklin St, which is the heart of the town. Lots of bars and food on Franklin, but if you're looking for cheap food or shopping you have to go out of town.

There really isn't any on-school parking. Generally people park in commuter lots and take the buses onto campus.
College Freshman 2013-08-11T23:13:25Z
Chapel Hill is a great, cozy town that is easily navigated. There are loads of different restaurants and various places to hang out.
College Freshman 2013-08-09T16:00:35Z
tuition, room and board, macbook pro, health insurance, transportation costs, and textbooks were all covered by the financial aid i received. i was given no loans, $10,358 in grant money per semester and a $1,350/semester work study program.
College Sophomore 2013-08-09T12:18:11Z
I haven't received any financial aid. I am struggling to pay for my education and UNC doesn't offer any type of help.
College Sophomore 2013-08-09T12:17:33Z
Transportation is great, and free for UNC students, but is sometimes inconvenient. At night, the P2P runs every 30 or so minutes, and it is very hard to actually find a bus that isn't full.

Really great psychology program here. Amazing researchers, amazing professors. Broad spectrum of opportunities.
College Senior 2013-08-03T01:17:22Z
On campus dorms are alright. They are fairly old and aren't very big. Not bad, though. Certainly nice to be able to walk everywhere.
College Junior 2013-08-02T14:03:02Z
The weather is great! It is mild here most of the months and cold only a couple of months. You can wear shorts almost until mid November and pull them out again in February.
College Junior 2013-08-02T14:01:35Z
Athletics is huge at Chapel Hill. We love our basketball and we have excellence in other areas as well! In addition our sports facilities are top-notch.
College Junior 2013-08-02T13:57:42Z
I have lived in a different dorm each year ( I am a junior). As a freshman, I lived in a high rise (Hinton James). The location wasn't good. It was a far distance from classes, but it was a great experience for meeting other students! Last year I lived mid-campus across from the football stadium in Carmichael Dorm. It was very convenient to classes, the gym and dining but the dorm itself was not as fun as HJ. I tried to get a single room for the upcoming year, but was unable to get one in the dorm on North Campus, so it is hard to get a single if you are looking to do that.
College Junior 2013-08-02T13:52:57Z
You have to practice common sense here. Obviously, you need to be discreet about underage drinking because it is a serious offense and it can get you into alot of trouble. There's alot of it here, but you can find a way around it. Going to classes is a must.
College Junior 2013-08-02T13:49:20Z
The dining halls on campus at Chapel Hill aren't that bad. It can get boring by mid-semester, however. There are a lot of other options available, though, that are close by.
College Sophomore 2013-07-30T04:58:49Z
Athletics at Chapel Hill are amazing, period. There's so many national champions for varying sports and students are so into athletics at Carolina. Tons of school spirit!
College Sophomore 2013-07-30T04:52:40Z
Public transportation is pretty great. The university, as well as the town of Chapel Hill, have buses running a lot and because they want to encourage people not to drive, it's free. UNC also has Safe Ride, Safe Walks, and P2P (Point-to-point) which takes you from one location on campus to another.
College Sophomore 2013-07-30T04:46:08Z
Chapel Hill is a college town and basically everywhere you look, there's Carolina blue. The students are really nice (from what I've seen) and overall, on-campus the feel is pretty upbeat and lively. A lot of people are willing to help you out if you need it and the jokes about the rivalry with d00k are plentiful :) Also, a lot of other colleges, like Duke and State, are located pretty nearby. Franklin Street is the main street in Chapel Hill and is full of shops, restaurants, etc. and like I said before, practically everyone in the area is a Tar Heel fan or alumni!

I never felt that the school policies interrupted my experience.

Most of the time, the weather is pretty good. In the fall-early spring (Oct-March), there can be a lot of rain and slush. Umbrellas are essential. Wellies aren't essential, but most women have at least one pair. Snow is pretty hit or miss depending on the year. Classes were delayed a grand total of one time in my 3.5 years at UNC- never cancelled. Teachers will sometimes cancel their own class, but don't expect it. There are also occasional tornado risks and there can be a lot of thunderstorms in late summer and in spring. Near daily thunderstorms at times are pretty par for the course in NC. In fall and spring (and winter depending on the year) you get a lot of frigid mornings and warm/hot afternoons, so layers are a good idea, especially if you live off-campus. The paths on campus are stone/brick and can get pretty slick when it is raining. Also, you probably won't get through even one semester without ending up in an ankle-deep puddle on your way to class. Having said all that- most days are pretty mild, if occasionally rather wet, and in summer/fall/spring, you can often find people hanging out in the quads.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
