"I was overwhelmed at first by the size, however I quickly fell in love with the campus/atmosphere and meeting someone new each day. Learning from professors and my classmates was a one of a kind experience."

"I have mixed feelings about UNC - Chapel Hill. I had to transfer there for financial reasons, and because of that, I did not have the full Chapel Hill experience. So I felt like I missed out on a lot. This, along with the large size of the school, made me feel lonely during my time there. Also, I felt like they could do more for transfer students, since many transfer students I knew felt the same way. Regarding course load, it felt too large to handle at times, especially in my senior year, but if you find someone to help you out such as people in academic counseling, it becomes more doable. Regarding students, I felt that many people there were toxic individuals, yet that's more or less normal considering the large school size. Also, I felt that many of the students are stressed out due to the course load which could explain why many have toxic attitudes. Regarding professors and instructors, I will admit that some of them were condescending and probably crazy. Yet most of them knew how to communicate their material effectively, and some of them were very friendly and helpful."

"I loved the academic atmosphere. There are constant activities, and the campus is gorgeous. I only wish that there wasn't such a strong culture around the sports."

"When I started school, a college degree was completely relevant and likely to help me become employed at a higher level. This is no longer true. Seriously consider your investment in ANY college, be reasonably sure you have a career path which requires a college education, and consider delaying or attending a community college before attending university."

"College was one of the most important phases of my life in determining who I wanted to be. I took classes that challenged both my academic side and the world views I had shaped so far. I loved every minute of it."

"Chapel Hill is a fantastic university environment with a wide variety of academic resources, diverse staff and student body and a beautiful campus. Like any large school, it can be easy to get lost among the opportunities and activities provided. But with a little self-motivation and a proactive attitude you can make a lifelong network of friends, mentors and colleagues and learn from some of the brightest people you'll ever meet."
