Stop by the fountain of nolege...er Knowledge and tour the old quad. The oldest public university building in the US is right there.

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

This is a gorgeous campus. The instructors are excellent and the education is America's top value. You truly cannot go wrong with UNC Chapel Hill.

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

After visiting Duke University we were disappointed in the UNC campus. The architecture was not impressive and seemed to be a mixture. The brick square in the middle of the campus was in upheaval and a large area was splashed with paint. The wooded area with the large old oaks were the best part of the campus.

I went back to get my Global MBA at age 55. It was likely the most memorable experience of my life. The professors were awesome and so was the program. The international component was a huge plus. Come on ....we live in a global world now. Learn about it.

Charles Kuralt would be turning over in his grave if he knew of the shenanigans of the past 20 years at UNC. The charm, the friendliness, the "beautiful college town" is sullied by the revelation of outright fraud in many of the courses, mostly to permit athletes to stay in school. An A given by a non-faculty member to a... More

The University of North Carolina was a friendly community nestled in the beautiful city of Chapel Hill. The atmosphere was filled with intelligence and kindness. The local park had the most beautiful rose garden.

The campus abuts... More
