Slacker

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is not an institution for those who do not like big schools. In general classes, such as General Psychology, there may be more than 400 students in a class. The university is also not a place for students who do not like to walk. Although the bus system is reliable and incredibly helpful, there are some days a student may be running late and walking is the best option. For an average freshman, it will take them 15 minutes to walk from their dorm to the Pit.

Gloria

Unfocused indidividuals and those who do not do well with working alone should not attend UNC-CH. It is easy to get lost in the crowd and it can be a bit overwhelming.

Katie

Someone who is not willing to stand up for themselves. Someone easily discouraged.

Annalisa

Someone who is very conservative or closed minded. UNC-Chapel Hill is a very diverse school, despite being considered a predominately white university. Also someone who isn't up for challenges and expects to "skate" through school. Classes aren't easy and your professors expect nothing but the best from you.

Hayley

Someone who is interested in a smaller school or someone who wants a school in a certain location. It is about 3 hours from mountains and beaches but not too close. It is also not a large city nor an incredibly small town.

Sara

If you hate diversity, you might want to steer clear of Carolina. There are so many different kinds of people here. Everywhere you turn, you can hear a group of students speaking in a foreign language and everywhere you look, you will see someone you've never seen before. It is very interesting, but it might be overwhelming for some.

Anneke

Someone who is not open to new ideas, spending time with people different from themselves, and trying new things.

Jessica

If you are a very closed minded person, you will probably not get along with many of the students. Also, if you prefer all classes to be small, including popular ones like biology and psychology, then I would suggest going elsewhere to get more individual attention. You have to be motivated to succeed at Chapel Hill, so if you can not handle the workload, you should probably go elsewhere as well.

Brittany

Honestly, such a huge variety of people attend UNC that there is not a specific "type" of person that should not attend. The community is vast and involved. People tend to be friendly and open-minded here, so every "stereotype" is accepted. People here are dedicated and motivated, but also have an incredible sense of having fun, so a person who is not willing to work would not fair well here, but a person who is all work and no play would not fair well here either.

Sarah

That is a hard question to answer. UNC is very diverse and if there's anything that someone is interested in, they are bound to find it at UNC or can can start a new organization for that interest very easily. UNC has very high academic expectations, so a person who cannot stay motivated or does not care about their academic success should not attend UNC.

Lisa

An individual that has difficulty balancing their personal life with a heavy workload will have difficulty with the challenges at UNC-Chapel Hill. There are many ways to get involved at UNC- Chapel Hill but it is up to the individual to make the first step. Therefore a shy person may have trouble making friends. Engineering majors are going to find their programs at North Carolina State University. Otherwise UNC-Chapel Hill has everything to offer. It will be up to the individual to make the most of what it offers.

At the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, excellence is expected. One should not attend this school if they prefer to take short-cuts, such as skipping class and getting notes from friends or cheating and partaking in other actions that are against the honor code. One should also not attend this school if they do not take their education seriously. This does not mean that those attending know their exact goals for the future, but we do, however, know that we want to succeed and are quite confident that we will do so.

Marissa

Any person who does not have a desire to learn should not attend the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. UNC is a school to develop students as both strong members of society through volunteering and leadership opportunities as well as academics. If a rising high school students does not have a desire to push him or herself towards greater knowledge and new intellectual experiences, then he or she should not attend the University of North Carolina.

Tamara

If you do not want to be around a lot of people and of different races, this school is not for you. Someone who does not like a busy city and community should not attend this school.

anyone can attend UNC. it is very liberal and open to many unique individuals whether you be defined by gender, race, sexuality, etc. it welcomes all. individuals should come to unc with open-minds and willing to accept other's unique differences. as long as people continue to act as themselves and allow others surronding them to see their true colors then it will allow for those around them to learn more about diversity.
