“Lovely grounds”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2013

Definitely worthwhile walking around the grounds of the University. It's so well kept, clean and lively with all "the youth" walking around. Coker arboretum is especially fantastic, well thought out and has a "magical" feel to it.

“UNC basketball”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2013

There is nothing like watching a Duke, UNC Basketball game. The University of North Carolina has a basketball tradition second to none.

“First public university in America”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2013

Beautiful campus and has great history to boot. The athletic, academic and cultural history are all displayed in the archives in Wilson library and can be seen in the architecture of Old East and the Old Well. Perfect to go through the arboretum on a spring day, see a show in the planetarium, and eat on Franklin street. Perfect atmosphere.

“Visit UNC”

My daughter and I visited the campus and it was beautiful! The tour is worth it because of all the history they give you. We also attended a basketball game and the blue and white was on everyone! What an experience.
