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.

Every time I return, I am amazed at the growth of the University. I graduated in 1962 and some things like the front quad are the same. The Bell Tower is the same, but Kenan Stadium has grown. I think the biggest changes are in the med school area. It is a toss up whether nostalgia or pride in progress... More

Did a tour - very worthwhile. School is beautiful with many open courtyards and historic buildings. The fountain at the center is a popular photo spot and the student store sells all the logo gear you could want. The people at the school are very friendly and follow many wonderful traditions dating back to when this first US public university... More

Good campus. I love how their sports facilities (especially football and baseball) are right on campus and you could pass both if you weren't looking for them. The school seems well laid out and though it's big, it wasn't overwhelming. Definitely recommend.

Lovely trees, lovely building, just a great experience to walk around this very lovely university. You can feel the vibes from all the young people walking around the clean campus. Some great architecture. Young people from many diverse countries - makes it exciting to walk around.

My wife attended a conference at UNC so my son and I tagged along. We had a great time on campus and on Franklin Street, If you are going to be at UNC or in Chapel Hill I can recommend the Carolina Inn which is on campus. WE enjoyed the UNC Basketball Museum on campus with FREE admission. Franklin Street... More

Beautiful campus; vegetation beautiful, buildings interesting, meetings at Carolina Inn and School of Social Work held in comfortable setting. Only thing I disliked was tha Hotel Vans were very hard for my disabled wife to get into.

UNC Chapel Hill is a great university to visit. It is a beautiful campus and is surrounded by a fun and interesting college town. Also if you have any interest in libraries, visit the Davis Library which is open to visitors. If you're truly serious about your libraries, sign up ahead of time to see some rare books at the...

It is very nice campus, which worth visiting. Sunday is a good day to visit since parking should not be a problem. Drive around first, then walk.
