University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Top Questions

Why did you decide to go to this school?

Brian

It was the best school academically in my state for business which I wanted to major in. It also has a beautiful campus and a social scene that can't be beat.

I was born and raised in North Carolina as a Tar Heel, but that wasn't the only reason I came to UNC-Chapel Hill. UNC is a prestigious university known for both its academics and its sports. I am an avid sports fan, but I also wanted to get a good education. UNC is the best of both worlds. Not only is it the perfect place for someone who loves sports and wants a good education but the campus is gorgeous. North Carolina weather is the best of everything. We get nice and hot summers to enjoy, then we move into the beautiful fall weather that is temperate and brings out all of the drastic colors of the leaves, we move into a chilly winter that only gives us short bouts of snow, and then we bring all of the pastels and bright pinks of the flowers with spring, which causes the students to litter the quad in an attempt to soak in as much of the beautiful weather as they can. I first visited UNC during the spring season, and I knew there was no other place I would be happy going to college.

Brian

I came to UNC because of the journalism program's reputation, and I found that it lived up to the praise. Other reasons for choosing UNC included the quality sports programs, scenic campus, welcoming community and great weather. I did have concerns that I wouldn't fit in, as nearly 90 percent of UNC students are from North Carolina. Thankfully, I didn't have any trouble fitting in and other than the very rare student who wasn't a fan of "Yankees," being from New York wasn't an issue at all. Finally, comparing the facilities and opportunities at UNC with private schools made the school look like quite a bargain due to the reasonable tuition.
