Very vibrant university in the research triangle, smart students and pretty good faculty in my opinion. Good weather too. Not many places in the world can offer a more convenient environment for work/study. Highly recommended.

so much to see at UNC Chapel Hill. Lovely campus, very vibrant. Love the arboretum, the well, the bell tower, the quad, and the architecture. Go see a football game, visit the hall of fame, go to the Akland Museum on Franklin street, stop at the many cool shops on Franklin.

I have lived in Chapel Hill for almost a year now, and I am not a student. Yet I have walked all over that campus many times already.

It was a warm day, but there was a nice breeze. The trellis was the largest I have walked through and it was cool. It was like a vacation, a retreat, a pleasant oasis. The campus was was beautiful. We even took advantage of the on campus shuttle.

We loved this place! UNC was such a nice place, and all of the restaurants on Franklen Street were so good. I hope my daughter goes here.

The campus is very pretty with a lot of history. Very relaxing to drive or walk around. Much shade and I can only imagine how pretty it is in the fall when the colors start to change.

After seeing more than 6 schools in 3 days, nothing topped our experience at UNC. What a fun and beautiful campus. Great tour guides.

We took some time to stroll through the UNC campus. I actually found out one of the dorm halls was named after an ancestor of mine, a general in the military, so it was worth the trip just to see the plaque.

A nice campus in the middle of a cute college town with lots of restaurants and bars to offer. Strolling the campus is pleasant and relaxing, esp on a weekend when it is not swarming with students.

This is a beautiful campus to walk around. We were very lucky to be there in the first week of spring and all the trees and cherry blossoms gave it a very special look.
