Chapel Hill offers the visitor a good view of its campus by foot, which today seems rare as so many campus grounds are spred out and scattered. The buildings were a walk back into a different time with greenery in abundance and walkways in every direction,neatly kept. A view of some monuments is possible on East Franklin Street from a...

Visit the main library - fantastic exhibit of Raleigh period furniture! It's a huge campus and worth booking onto a free tour. We were lucky to have our own tour-guide, a friend, studying there.

Not only is the campus beautiful, but almost every professor I've ever been acquainted with or involved in working with have been outstanding in their fields. It is a great educational university and when it comes to tuition only one of the few that is so economical. We're looking forward to having our granddaughter attend the University of North Carolina... More

Love it! We are very bias, but we love everything about Chapel Hill! If you want a superb place to stay, try the Carolina Inn. There is no place better and you don't need a connection to the University, except graduation week.

Yes, I am an alumnus and biased but it's true - it's hard work in a great setting amongst people who want to teach you and help you to succeed. Visit - walk around - talk to students and faculty. Have a coffee and sit and watch the world go by. Then apply and cross your fingers. Higher education is... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to UNC. The campus is absolutely beautiful and well maintained. Looks more like a state park than a school. I had no idea it was so old, dating back to the 1700's. Love that most of the buildings are made of red brick. Best part of my visit was Dean E. Smith Center and the... More
