"I had an incredibly positive experience at University of North Carolina. I was able to establish great connections, socially, academically and professionally. My relationships with my professors helped to steer me down a career path I did not know even existed and helped me to find my passion in urban design. The resources that UNC has to offer are incredibly helpful and the campus culture is something that I have not been able to"

"The education that I received at UNC-CH has significantly impacted my professional skills. I was part of a training grant that emphasized working with children with disabilities under the age of five. I learned how to respect the families and their culture, involve the families in the development of their child through functional and natural activities as well as how to practically teach speech skills. I use the concepts I learned daily as I am a practicing speech therapist. I have worked in various settings in my 25+ years experience including home based therapy, preschool based and school based therapy. The education that I gained at UNC-CH prepared me for each setting. I highly recommended the graduate school at UNC-CH."

"The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is a strong school with a large diversity of individuals. Personally, I felt overwhelmed with the size of the school, and I often felt overlooked or as if I was just another number there. However, if you can actively engage in clubs, events, opportunities with professors, etc. then you should excel here. I will say that classes here can be extremely difficult and daunting, but if you can focus and work hard, the pay off will be worth it. The reputation of this school means something to many employers, and there seems to be a respect for those that got through the school. You can also make a lot of connections which will greatly help in job searching after school."

"The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill provided me with the opportunity to be a well-rounded and well-informed student and professional. Because it is a large university, UNC gives each student with the access to the resources one would need to excel in a professional environment. The number of networking events, mentors, research opportunities, scholarships to study abroad, and academic resources are unbelievable. You also get access to an unbelievable student experience. With hundreds of clubs and organizations and an overload of on-campus events, there is never a shortage of ways to get involved. The university also strives to help students connect with the surrounding and extended community. If you are looking to get involved in a specific career or just simply want to me at an alumnus in an area, the career services will connect you easily with a simplicity of a click."

"From the moment I arrived on UNC Chapel Hill's campus, I knew I was home. I absolutely loved everything about my experience at Carolina. To begin, the campus is gorgeous! I have never seen a prettier college campus. The grass is perfectly green and during the spring, the flowers throughout the campus are stunning. The Quad is the place to be during lunch time and many days, it felt as if the entire student body was gathered in the quad just to hang out and socialize with one another as we filtered in and out of the dining hall and library. I developed my closest friendships at Carolina. I was a Sociology and African American Studies double major. I loved both programs and the wide range of classes I was able to take. For the first time in my education, I had the opportunity to choose classes that focused on specific topics that I was genuinely yearning to learn about. My professors were amazing educators. Truly! I am pretty sure I went to office hours for nearly every professor I had and my eagerness to learn and understand was always met with equal enthusiasm from my professors. I graduated knowing that I had attained a breadth of knowledge that would directly impact my career. And so far, that has continued to be the case throughout my career.If you're choosing between Duke and Carolina... Don't be silly! It's ALWAYS a great day to be a Tar Heel!! I was admitted to both Duke and Carolina. The summer before school started, I had the opportunity to spend a weekend on Duke's campus with many other incoming Duke freshman. That weekend solidified for me that Carolina was where I wanted to be. This is not meant to be a slight to Duke (because thats just not the Carolina way haha), but rather my attempt to highlight the unmatched warmth of Carolinas campus. When I visited UNCs campus, it was that kind, open-armed warmth that let me know Carolina was the place for me. When all of the students lock arms to shout-sing our alma mater Hark the Sound, there is a certain magic about it that echoes the legacy of the university. If you have the opportunity to attend UNC Chapel Hill and experience the magic do it."

"Despite UNC having had its fair share of scandals over the years, I enjoyed my time spent in attendance. As a psychology major with a minor in social and economic justice, my coursework mainly focused on matters of mental health, activism, and social reform. For me, it was the perfect choice. My program allowed me to explore a breadth of current topics while conducting research regarding my personal interests. I would recommend UNC to anyone considering spending their next four years at the nations first public university."

"There is not enough words to describe my experience at UNC-CH. I have absolutely no complaints. The academics are top in the nation but what I really enjoyed was the people and networks I met and established. the great aspect about attending UNC-CH is the people you are exposed to. I made a lot of connections at school there that I do not know if I would be where I am today without that experience. For example, as a sports-minded student I was able to meet Coach Roy Williams, the athletic director, and many great athletes. I was also able to intern under an Associate Athletic Director, the Track team's Director of Operations, and one of the Assistant track coaches. These opportunities would have never been available to me without UNC-CH."

"I am happy that I chose to attend the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. It was a great undergraduate experience. Great academics, great sports, great weather (compared to where I am from). If I could do it all over again, I would not change a thing."

"UNC is a great school with great sport spirit. The campus is extremely beautiful and safe. However, most of the financial aid from the school is state based . Many of the scholarships if you are not eligible for FAFSA then you are generally not eligible for anything else, even if you are on the top 5% of your class."

"On the whole, I can only say good things! Truly loved my time here. So many special memories. I would love to do it again! Try to stay focused, and figure out what you really love early-on because the four years you get to spend at UNC will fly right by!"
