The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is a school not only recognizable for its athletic teams but also for its outstanding academics. I have found such an inclusive, welcoming community at Carolina that is both diverse and supportive. There are countless opportunities at Carolina, and the staff, students, and overall community will always support you in your endeavors. I have never been to a school with such a vibrant community and have never witnessed a student body with so much school pride. Go Tar Heels!
Review University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
UNC Chapel Hill is your classic university. Beautiful campus, difficult classes, and always something to do. You can easily find new opportunities and experiences on this campus, but you have to make yourself because or else you can just stay in the same routines with the same group of friends. Check out celebrations like Holi. Go to an a capella concert. Rush Franklin Street every chance you get. Just go to Franklin Street every chance you get! I think that this university could allow anyone to grow, no matter who they are or what their needs are. Just like anything else in life, you get out of it what you put into it.
UNC Chapel Hill - the name rings familiarity across the nation. A part of one of the biggest college basketball rivals, a leader in NC healthcare, and known for the specificity of "Carolina blue," UNC is a treasure. Nostalgia hits me every time I return: the campus is beautiful, the students are all on their way to achieving greatness, and the professors genuinely care about what goes on in their the students' minds. Diversity is not that high - as probably 60% of the students want to become doctors and nurses. The racial diversity is representative of the statistics in America. The culture diversity, however, is rather high and incorporating of all activities that I can think of. Overall, a fantastic institution!
