What Students Are Saying

3.99 Average Rating
perfect campus size; small enough to feel like you know tons of people but big enough to grant you crazy awesome experiences. through unc, i was able to compete nationally in business competitions, do real-life marketing projects for big companies like wells fargo, and meet major business and political leaders nationally.
Lee from Loveland, CO
UNC is a wonderful campus that is... User friendly. The staff and professors are amazing, and will go the extra mile, or few extra hours to help students out personally. The academics are wonderful, and the people you'll be attending classes with are really nice, and helpful.
