The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is nothing but spectacular! It's a home away from home. It's an absolutely stunning campus-the quads are beautiful in the fall and spring! Their athletic facilities are second to none. They have so many hidden gems-the arboretum , play makers theater, forest theater! The most beautiful campus and town. The people are... More

I studied there from 2006-2010 and could not havee asked for a more ideal experience. The university´s reputation speaks for itself with academically rigorous curricula and professors who are leaders in their fields. I did read with a heavy heart about the recent athlete scandals, but it was not that way for the rest of us. On top of the... More

A great University, to attend and to visit on special occasions such as football and basketball games. My ancestor was in the first class to graduate, 1798, so we have a long tradition.

Recently visited the UNC Chapel Hill campus. First impression was "wow" what a beautiful serene campus. Everywhere we walked everything we saw made us feel like it would be a great learning environment. Everyone we met was friendly and helpful. Football stadium was very nice. Everything seemed so close by yet the campus in very large. Looking forward to our... More

There are many beautiful campuses across America. I've been privileged to be on many (even work on one), but nothing is quite like UNC. If you want to really feel like you've experienced the "poster place" for higher public education, don't miss a trip to Chapel Hill and several hours strolling the Carolina campus.

Always wanted to see the first public university in the US with all the academic and athletic accolades. The campus is large with lots of grassy areas. The buildings appear worn and the student union is no big deal. You could hardly call Chapel Hill a college town but there must be much to do on campus since the students... More

Visited this campus for an admission interview. This school has a great heritage and strong unity amongst students. Needless to say the campus is awesome and is one of the best campuses I have visited.
