Student & Graduate Reviews

3.7 out of 5 stars
David Shin - 5/8/2019
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2011
"UNC-Chapel Hill was a college that I got accepted into and attended because all of my North Carolinian high school friends did as well. What I had failed to notice while attending was the beauty of it all. The campus is by far the prettiest I have seen, and I have been to many other campuses since my time there. The student body is large, you may need to try not to get lost in it initially, but once you join a club or find yourself a class to really appreciate, your time there will fly. The prestige itself of being an alumni is very high, which was unknown to me until I graduated. I would highly recommend everyone to go here."

Lizzie Cotton - 4/21/2019
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015
"While incredibly difficult on my mind, body, and spirit, the accelerated nursing degree at the University of North Carolina was one of the best experiences I have had as an adult learner. For a majority of the program, I was respected, listened to, and appreciated. I learned so much about myself and my own capabilities, and was supported by my peers and especially a few select professors that I hold dear to my heart. Challenging, but worth it."

C Hops - 2/26/2019
Degree: Environmental Science
Graduation Year: 2018
"Great school, you are always able to ask for help. Introductory science classes can be large, but once you start specializing in whatever your degree is, you will be so happy! Advising can be really helpful if you go in with specific questions. One thing UNC can do better is with career assistance - be prepared to do your own research before going in for help with preparing for interviews."

Anonymous - 2/18/2019
Degree: Exercise Science
Graduation Year: 2018
"UNC-CH provided me with many academic and extra-curricular pursuits to better determine my career interests. As an exercise and sport science degree I feel that it would be more beneficial to have a concentration. The general track is not nearly as hands-on as fitness professional where you are able to actively apply in a real world setting what you are learning in lecture in a classroom. I felt that much of the knowledge that I gained about the human body and musculature in conjunction with movement science would have been enhanced with an internship or lab requirement."

Jeffrey butscher - 1/7/2019
Degree: Mathematics
Graduation Year: 1979
"I was an honor graduate in high school with an almost 4.0 GPA. There were a variety of schools I could have applied to, but I chose The Univesity of North Carolina because of its rich history and academic standing. Not only is it a fantastic and highly ranked academic institution, but it combines academia with a rich social and sports environment. This gives the undergraduate student a well-rounded education. They also have prestigious graduate programs, should you decide to move on with a masters or doctorate program. In my case, I received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Mathematics. With that degree, I was offered multiple jobs prior to graduating. I ultimately accepted an offer from Coopers & Lybrand, now Price Waterhouse Coopers, as an actuarial mathematician."

Jenna Sawafta - 1/4/2019
Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2016
"The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill was an excellent place to obtain an undergraduate degree. Not only was I able to take classes taught by some of the world's leading experts in various fields like economics, linguistics, biology, and religious studies, I was also able to interact with diverse and ambitious peers. Any given day at UNC you will be meet driven, unique, passionate young people who help to create a culture where students are supporting one another rather than tearing each other down. Furthermore, I felt immense support by most of the faculty I interacted with throughout my four years at UNC. Almost all of my professors encouraged students to come to office hours, and when I did I felt that I got supportive and effective feedback that allowed me to become a better engage with the material at hand. Furthermore, the financial aid office and academic advisors were always helpful whenever I sought advice on helping to pay for school and exploring various majors. I would highly recommend UNC to any student pursuing a career in anything from humanities to STEM or a combination of both, such as myself. I truly feel UNC is a wonderful place for students to flourish, be challenged academically and socially, and be exposed to many different disciplines that can help inform their future career paths."

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2015
"I enjoyed my time at UNC Chapel Hill. The biology track is a rigorous program but if you are willing to put in the work will pay off in the long run. The community you form at UNC is long lasting and you have the opportunity to meet students from all over the country and the world."

Dana Vandervelde - 9/18/2018
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017
"The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill has an excellent culture and academic focus. The school provides many resources for students to do well, from the Wellness center, peer tutoring, student organizations, and faculty mentorship. I always felt supported while pursuing my degree! As a low income student, the Carolina Covenant program helped me to graduate debt free through work study, grants, and scholarships. Without this program, I would have been in major debt with no familial financial support."

Ikerighi David - 7/31/2018
Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2012
"Chapel Hill is an amazing school. At Chapel Hill I had excellent professors who taught me how to ask questions and find answers for myself. The university is one of the best public schools in the nation and it is top notch all across the board, including the sciences and humanities. Tuition is also relatively affordable when compared to similarly ranked schools, while the school offers full financial aid through Carolina Covenant for impoverished students."

Zay Sevier - 8/28/2017
Degree: Music
Graduation Year: 1974
"This is about Bryant and Stratton College. I have a Bachelor's degree, a Master's degree, and a Ph.D. I have taught at all levels of education. I was Assistant Professor at The Ohio State University for a number of years, and I now own a successful business. But Bryant and Stratton College continues to send these emails to me, touting "earn your degree online, financial aid may be available," in spite of the message I sent to them asking them to desist. I said, among other things, " It seems that you don't care what the academic world thinks of Bryant & Stratton College. I told you, if you continue to send these emails, trying to enroll me in your little school, I will spread the news that Bryant & Stratton College is run by a bunch of nincompoops," and " I'm asking, please don't continue to send your ads to me or to other Ph.Ds. It just makes you look foolish.""
