We were just of an alumnus from UNC was gracious enough to take us to lunch at the alumni dining room in a private building. The recommendations with the Salads and hamburger to die for. Most important was the elegance of the setting and service. Don't miss the opportunity to attend if you are invited.

UNC Chapel Hill has quite simply the most beautiful campus, with glorious buildings, beautiful trees and seating areas - simply stunning. Parking is not always easy but with lovely restaurants, great people and fantastic surroundings - the effort is surely worth it! A special place.

UNC has one of the most beautiful campuses I've ever seen. Perfect for an evening stroll or even a nice photo shoot! Many places to sit and enjoy the scenes or read a book.

Having Franklin Street adjacent to the campus was key. The staff throughout the campus from the Student Stores to the cafes & coffee shops was always helpful and courteous. Sporting... More

A very informative trip for freshmen. The experience was great except, with only one glitch. We will be back.

We walked the campus - beautiful big trees and lush gardens everywhere. The buildings are old and ornate. The streets around the campus are really just places to eat...no shopping to be had. It was a nice time.
