Freshman year, be ready for big classes! It will inevitably feel huge compared to your high school. My freshman classes all had 70-300 people in them, which made me feel really distant from my professors. However, once you get past the basic courses and you get more involved in your department, that problem goes away completely.
A lot of social life is around greek life.
Due to the fact my school is a liberal arts school, I sometimes feel that my conservative views are a little supressed here. Especially during this years election, because I was a McCain supporter, I felt the need to keep my opnion to myself as the minority group on campus. I only knew of a small group of McCain supporters on campus and felt overwhelmed and somewhat intimidated by the sheer number of Obama fans.
The worst thing about Chapel Hill is the lack of outdoor activities nearby. The beach and the mountains are 3-4 hours away in opposite directions. If you're an avid hiker, surfer, or just a beach bum you have to be willing to drive to get to your destination.
There is so much to do and get involved in, I don't have enough hours in the day to do it all.
That's an easy one! The high cost of out of state tuition and the lack of MERIT scholarships.
I feel like social life revolves around alcohol and there isn't much else to do.
UNC-Chapel Hill has very few bad attributes in my opinion. However, I do think students can get lost in the enormity of the school and not get the academic advising attention they need. Some kids have to stick around for another semester just to get one more required class.
