University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Top Questions

What kind of person should attend this school?

Rachel

In order to succeed at Chapel Hill, one has to be intrinsically motivated to get work done on time and be prepared to study for exams. In high school, I never really had to study for tests, but in Chapel Hill it is a necessity. Although working hard is a huge part of being at this university, any student who comes here should also be prepared to drink from the Old Well on the first day of classes and celebrate basketball wins against Duke, our arch-nemesis, and become a member of a community because this university is a family.

To attend UNC Chapel Hill, a prospective student must be comfortable with attending a large college. The class sizes are rather big, so the student must be comfortable in a large class setting. Also, the prospective student should be open to meeting new people. There are a lot of students that attend UNC Chapel Hill, so a prospective student should be open to meeting other students around them. By meeting other people, you can form study groups and become a successful student.

Anintelligent person with open mind is the perfect candidate for the University of North Carolina. There are people from all walks of life that attend the University and somebody with a closed mind would not be as willing to accept these type of people; other than those who are like them.

Danielle

Samantha

The kind of person that should attend this school is one that has a multitude of facets and is very responsible. The school is amazing and it provides students with an opportunity to do almost anything you want to do. That being said though, there is always so many things to do that it can be easy to lose sight of the real reason you attend the school: academics. So, whoever attends this school should be responsible and able to embrace many situations.

Chloe

The lack of proper heating/cooling systems in the larger dorms, which coincidently is where underclassmen tend to live, is very frustrating. Some of the rooms have window units, but only roughly half, the others don?t have any sort of cooling system. The heating system consists of steam radiators. These are situated directly under the windows, so when there is a breeze outside, which thanks to improper sealing tends to blow in around the window, no heat ends up permeating the room. To make matters worse, the walls are concrete, which holds no heat.

A person who attends this school should be open-minded and tolerant because there is a lot of diversity here. They should be confident in themselves and their morals because their morals will definitely be tested here. They should be ready to embrace the responsibility of living on their own and know the difference between what's right and wrong for themselves. The social scene here is extremely Greek and alcohol-based, so they should have control and should probably steer away from becoming a part of that scene every weekend. They should be up to try new things.
