The process for me was easier than expected. Being a part-time studies student I did not have to worry about transfering transcripts and proving my capability with testing. I had not problems getting enrolled in the classes that I needed vs. having to wait. The process was simple and did not take long at all to get set up in their system.

Being a working adult learner I find that while they are considered a major university, they are also very accomodating to those of us who are re-entering school for further education needs.

UNC basketball is practically a religion in itself. People on and around campus are Tarheel fanatics and it's always fun to witness the enthusiasm among crowds.

UNC is very religiously, sexually, and politically diverse but not everyone is accepting
College Sophomore 2013-05-20T15:17:48Z
There is a wide variety for whatever someone wants

I'm not quite sure about the housing off campus, but they look cool

You are given $40 worth of printing at the beginning of the semester (each page costs 10 cents) and a huge amount of minutes on any computer in the library you want. Both of those are great but what I think is most helpful is the fact that there are so many technological resources available on campus. If anything happens to your computer, ANYTHING AT ALL, they'll have a solution for you.

I received the only amount of financial aid I probably would be eligible for so I am grateful for that. It is difficult though because sometimes according to a family's profile they are labelled as not needing money so work-study jobs are not open to those students. Some of my friends are there for full financial aid though so they really appreciate it.

I was placed in a great dorm so I was very lucky. The general atmosphere is very social but respectful at the same time. If you want to play a ping pong tournament with your friends or just do homework in a lounge both of those are possible. The Residential Advisors are upperclassmen students so they are awesome for advise or help regarding anything and they're always looking to have a good, safe time.

Carolina can be an incredibly beautiful place when the weather decides to behave. The key word though is behave. You never know what you're going to get. One day it was 70 degrees and amazing to be outside, the next day it was 50 and rainy.

Franklin Street has a huge range of great food. Everything you can imagine from food chains like Chipotle to local shops such as the Yogurt Pump. It's a great place to just go out for and enjoy company and great food.

I do not have a lot of experience with the "drug" scene at UNC, but from what I have seen, policies are pretty well enforced. Obviously there is a presence of alcohol, and there will always be peer pressure to a certain degree, but I do not believe that it is out of control on campus.

Franklin Street and Chapel Hill have great options for off-campus dining. There is a good variety of chain restaurants along with unique spots distinct to Chapel Hill. The pricing is pretty good across the board. There are the more upscale places that really are not too outrageous price wise, and then there are the more casual dining restaurants that are convenient and relatively cheap.

Parking on campus is pretty limited, and the permits are very expensive.

Computers are pretty good at UNC, however can get filled up during midterms/final times. While almost everyone gets a computer through the school, those without computers definitely can get access to a computer at a lab.

There are many off campus housing options (apartments, houses, duplexes). But to get a high quality housing option, people need to start early in the search process. While quality is overall good for student housing, it is what you pay for.

Sports in general at UNC are very important. Almost all athletics are supported.

Guys & Girls:
Melting Pot of dress and personality types at Chapel Hill. There is a 60/40 split girls to guys...seriously there are more beautiful girls and hunky guys. However, all individuals are very intelligent. There is something for everyone, and most people are very active, there will always be someone out running on a nice day. Very easy to meet people at school and community events.

North Carolina is the only state of which you can experience all four seasons in one month. Generally the winters are mild though.

It was easy to apply for admission to the program but it is very competitive.
College Sophomore 2013-04-18T14:10:37Z
The food at the dining halls is pretty good. There is a variety and a great salad bar and lot of fruit. The late evening dining is better than during the day. It would be great if it was like that during the day instead of eating so late which is not healthy

Parking is not always guaranteed, and is expensive.

Off-campus dining is super convenient with franklin street being on the edge of campus, but there is not much variety. You have to go further down towards carrboro to find different options.

Parking available almost all places off campus. Nicer apartments more expensive but you can find cheap apartments which is great for a college-student budget.

We are called the "University of National Championship". We are nationally known so school spirit is a major part of the university. You will always find a large amount of students showing school spirit daily. The athletes have a ton of support. Students are always pubbing for their friends' team events.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
