For many years I have loved visiting the UNC campus. It is great to return to Franklin Street with so much activity and so many young people walking around. We ate at Spanky's which is worth visiting. Then we strolled through the lovely Quad to settle or food on a lovely evening.

A must see college campus in the US. The oldest public university in the nation and one of the public ivy league schools with tons of history and phenomenal buildings. Also one of the best research institutions in the nation.

Having spent my four undergraduate years at one of America's prettiest, and most traditional college campuses (Dartmouth), I was curious to visit another campus that is touted as being beautiful, and it was. McCorkle Place and Polk Place are the main "quads" and have historic brick buildings around the perimeter. Gorgeous, old trees add much needed shade on a hot... More

We toured UNC today. What a beautiful campus. It is HUGE. They say 15 minutes walking from north to south campus--but it's more like 30 minutes+. They buildings are gorgeous. The oldest university in the United States! Campus tour was very informative. Over 75 minutes long. Great insight for prospective students. Be sure to drink from the popular white well... More

Great atmosphere and setting for a university. Great people and surrounding area. Enough on Franklin St to occupy anyone. Getting to an ACC baasketball game is worth the ticket money

The campus os beautiful and the academics are great. There's a bit too much emphasis on athletics. It can be a bit like allowing the animals running the zoo.

The Univ. of NC campus is beautifully landscaped & manicured. I like how all the buildings are kept in the same traditional Georgian architecture.

UNC is a pretty campus with a nice history. The college town atmosphere is evident and welcoming. I did have a problem with the flags lining the street though. It was July 3rd and there were rainbow flags flying up and down the street versus our AMERICAN flag. Sadly, this was a bit shameful!

I attended Carolina when the only prerequisite for admission was being born in North Carolina, so I will admit to being a bit biased.

If you're a sports fan of either men's basketball or women's soccer, as you walk around the campus all you can think about are the greats that also walked there before you. You can almost see Jordan and Hamm walking along side of you as you visit the venues where they preformed and made history and established their early greatness.
