What Students Are Saying

4.03 Average Rating
The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill's campus, to me, is a great metaphor for the university as a whole; first off, it's full of color and zest, with all the beautiful trees everywhere. In addition, many of its buildings have very strange architecture, which relates to UNC's uniqueness as a whole. But finally, all the students you pass are enthusiastic, happy and content, which exemplifies all of the university's attributes.

There's no denying that UNC has amazing academic programs. Just make sure that they are best for what you are interested in. Also, the idea that you can make a big school feel small definitely applies here. You get that great sense of community while having the perks of not only a larger campus but the opportunity to constantly meet new people.
