We walked the campus - beautiful big trees and lush gardens everywhere. The buildings are old and ornate. The streets around the campus are really just places to eat...no shopping to be had. It was a nice time.

Beautiful campus. People were helpful and courteous. It would be a lot of fun to attend a sporting event on campus.

I have been to UNC- Chapel Hill, many times and never get tired of going there. It is my opinion that this is the most beatuiful venue for college football,in the United States bar none. The stadium sits among rolling hills,covered with pine trees. The walk to the stadium on cool autumn night is what college football should be ,... More

It is a great place to go and walk around. Not to mention, the campus has a ton of historical sites and museums, along with unique art. A nice place to spend an afternoon!

UNC-CH is a pleasantly walkable university that connects directly with the downtown. The historic area of campus is tree shaded and has nice places to rest. Carolina Crossroads is located in the Carolina Inn and is a delicious place to eat. There is a warm bar right across the hall from the restaurant. The Inn has recently undergone renovation and...

The trees are extraordinary, and some of the buildings go back to the 18th century and are beautiful. It's fun to see graduates in their caps and gowns taking photos at the Old Well.

This is a beautiful campus with history, in a small college town you could spend an awful lot of time in. Loved Chapel Hill, and all the beautiful buildings on the UNC-Chapel Hill campus.

I'm a guidance counselor and have been to a lot of colleges, UNC is unlike any I have visited. The sense of community is so apparent you immediately want to be a part of it. When you hear that everyone bleeds blue in Chapel Hill it truly is the case. On campus and in every corner of Chapel Hill it's... More

Students on campus seem genuinely happy to be there. The campus is storybook beautiful and the campus just seems alive. Franklin Street is a fun place to grab a bite and the expansive lawns throughout the campus are picture perfect. The new construction blended into the original campus is masterful.
