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.

I loved UNC! I could not say enough good things about the architecture and the wondrous trees uptown Franklin St. The restaurants and people were all very nice. I will certainly visit again if for nothing other than to sit in one of the many parks.

This reminds me of what a college campus should be. Massive beautiful brick buildings surrounding all of the quads. The grounds are kept in beautiful shape. By the bookstore there is a area where every student will pass at least once in 24 hour.

Another gorgeous college town. Beautiful sprawling campus. Great to walk around in on a nice spring day. All that spring green actually hurts your eyes. Cute downtown. Only downside - parking very hard to find.

Visited UNC this past weekend. The campus was great and loved seeing the older buildings as well as the new. The old well and bell tower really helped with the history as well as tradition. Wife is a alumni understand now why she loved going there.

Visited the campus of UNC to show our daughter a larger university - and also to appease my husband who is a huge Carolina fan! This campus is gorgeous and considering it's size, it is not overwhelming but a very nice, walkable campus. Campus tour was very nice and glad we took the time to do it. The guides were... More
