    The people here are super nice and super fun. There's always things to do and plenty of things to sign up for. There are several a cappella groups and dance teams who take on inexperienced people who just want to have fun. Not to mention cultural groups and religious groups. Most people already know each other, so if you're out of state or come from a small place and don't know anyone, the social events and groups help you meet tons of people and you make friends fast (as long as you can get out of your comfort zone, that is).

    While the suburban setting is not for everyone, Carolina's gorgeous campus offers a quite college environment free of outside distractions. Keep in mind though, the famous Franklin Street is less than a mile walk or bus shuttle from any point on campus. The bus system caters to the needs of students by having routes to local shopping malls, grocery stores, movie theaters, and other destinations in the surrounding cities of Raleigh and Durham since first years are not allowed cars on campus. Living in a community as diverse as Carolina, there is always something for you to get involved in like Athletic clubs or charity events on campus. Its hard not to get involved in leaving your Heel Print in some way in your years at Carolina!

    I love it here. Everyone is nice. Complete strangers that you pass say hi to you as you pass and if you need help trying to locate a certain building, ask anyone and they will tell you.

    Chapel Hill is Heaven on Earth. 'Nuff said. Seriously though, it is fantastic. The campus is gorgeous, the people are wonderful, and the environment is all-around dream-like. I couldn't ask for a better college and I am so glad I chose this college over every other one. It was the best decision I ever made. There are always things going on around campus. In fact, this entire weekend is Potter Palooza in celebration of the last Harry Potter movie coming out on DVD so there is a huge party in the Student Union every night, starting Thursday. There is something here for everyone and thousands of different ways to get involved. The best part is this: if you CAN'T find something that interests you (which seems almost impossible) then you can create your own club, group, organization, or whatever you want!

    You would have to stay in your dorm all day to be bored here; there's no way to avoid the tons of activities going on all the time! It's easy to find a group, club, or activity that fits your interests. (I recommend playing Humans vs. Zombies!) The campus is absolutely gorgeous. I loved living in the Upper Quad on the older part of campus, and being so close to the Arboretum and Franklin Street was a definite plus. Though I adored my time at UNC, I didn't finish my undergrad degree there because I personally need a smaller, more connected academic environment to do my best. Though UNC is fantastic, it's not for everyone.
