What is your overall opinion of this school?

UNC empowers you to create the university experience you want.  With nearly 20,000 undergraduate students, the unique student organizations make it easy to find friends and valuable support systems. There are more than 50 intramural sports, from ultimate frisbee to wheelchair basketball, and 900 student organizations that span every imaginable interest. Make sure to attend UNC’s Fall Fest, where you can learn about the different student organizations, eat free food, get free shirts, and see free performances. I joined an intramural volleyball team and the latin dance team, Que Ríco, after learning about them at Fall Fest! In addition to the extracurriculars, UNC students live for big sports events.  UNC students excel inside and outside of the classroom. The university boasts high quality academics and world-renowned professors. In fact, I’ve attended classes where students from other universities visit for the day just so they can meet a specific professor. As a Global Studies and Public Policy double major, some of my professors brokered peace agreements in East Africa and Latin America. Regardless of which one of the 84 majors you choose, UNC offers countless resources to supplement your knowledge. During my time at UNC, I was fortunate to receive five different scholarships to research and intern abroad, which truly shaped my academic and professional trajectory.  If you worry about being away from home, the Resident Advisors plan numerous weekly and monthly events to make sure you are comfortable. There are also specific Living-Learning Communities for people who have similar interests/lifestyles. I lived in La Casa sophomore year and loved it. Additionally, there are various dining halls all over campus with plentiful food options.  While UNC is a wonderful, unique university, some aspects may concern prospective students. With a large student body comes large classes, but professors schedule regular office hours to provide additional support. Additionally, UNC is a very politically active university which lends itself to polarizing debates. Some students embrace this and become more civically engaged, however the tension can be burdensome. I found comfort in the Center for Social Justice, where I was actively engaged for four years, the mental health resources, and the vigils that brought our community together whenever there was a tragedy.  As an out-of-state student who didn’t have much familiarity with UNC,  the student reviews cemented my choice to attend UNC. The reviews consistently noted students’ passion for academics, sports, politics, the interesting quirks of the university, and most important to me, for changing the world. Now, as an alumnus, I’m happy to corroborate these reviews and confirm that a UNC experience is whatever you make it!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Attending Chapel Hill has opened my world to endless possibilities and experiences. When first visiting the campus, I knew it would be the college I would attend, as the excitement and innovation in the atmosphere was tangible. However, upon attending the school, all of this and more completely exceeded my expectations. There are endless amounts of people with unique backgrounds and stories, the professors have a desire for their students to succeed and learn, and there is a drive for knowledge and success in the atmosphere that is invigorating and encouraging.

An amazing institution. It is SUPER challenging but the amazing classes and professors make it feel much easier. I picked the perfect school for myself. Don't expect to not have to work hard though - it is tough! The culture here is amazing. If you LOVE basketball, choose UNC!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a nice enough school. For other POC you will definitely end up a in a close knit group of alike people. Subtle and overt racism on campus, which comes with the title of a PWI. Also they make the classes harder than they need to be. Also with seeing how they dealt with the pandemic, don't expect much in sympathy from professors. Overall it's a nice experience though.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UNC Chapel Hill is a great school to attend and it is very easy to find your people here. The extra-curriculars are excellent with a variety to choose from and the student fan-base is phenomenal. Classes are hard here, especially in the STEM department, however, with the right studying techniques, it can be done.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Even though I wished my professors were more approachable and that I should have taken the time to visit them at office hours, I would rate Carolina 5/5 every time. I fell in love with the campus and how liberal and open minded my classmates were. Not to mention how talented everyone was, not only in academics, but also in sports, arts, or dance. The experiences I have had, both good and bad, are what have shaped me into the person I am today and so Carolina will always hold a special place in my heart.
