Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2012
"Although UNC-Chapel Hill is a large school, there are so many ways to make it feel small. Making friends and meeting people through classes, dorms, clubs, and sporting events is very easy. By offering classes in many disciplines, UNC-CH offers a well-rounded degree for the modern, free-thinking student."

"UNC Chapel Hill is a fantastic school. The diversity of the students and curriculum was great. The town is a great place to spend 4 or more years."

"I had a good experience once I got into classes that really lit my fire - for me, it was sociology classes. UNC has an eclectic and diverse student body and a nice sense of community."

"UNC is a great place with a positive atmosphere. Being a student at Carolina has given me so many opportunities to become involved on and off campus. The education I have received at Carolina has also been a great foundation as I move on to graduate school for Occupational Therapy."

Jasmine Harris - 8/5/2014
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2014
"When applying to this school I was attracted by their rating as one of the top programs in the country. I understand this to be because we have really impressive professors with extensive research backgrounds and who are still making amazing discoveries in the field. However, I had high expectations that a high rating would also mean that we'd receive lots of extra attention outside of coursework to help us prepare for the professional field. What I found was that level of instruction was dependent on instructor availability when signing up for classes. Placement services were not the best either because there was very little freedom for student input towards their preferences. Most of all, there wasn't much guidance on selecting concentrations. For all of those reasons I wouldn't recommend this social work program to others. Compared to my undergraduate experience it was definitely failing on several levels. I'm still finding it very hard to find employment even with my new credentials."

"I went to college to learn how to function as an adult, and to expand my knowledge of the world. I did that, to a greater degree than I could have ever hoped. I never intended to use my undergrad degree to find a career, so my experience has served me perfectly. My degree has been most helpful to my career because it exists. The subject of my degree has no impact on my job, but being a college graduate has allowed me keep my job as a government contractor when other, more experienced coworkers without degrees didn't. That said, I would not have had the confidence or ability to get or do my job if I hadn't gotten my degree. The skills I learned help me navigate the real world. I also didn't take as much advantage of the academic and career counseling options in school as I should have. Take advantage of the resources at the school to maximize your likelihood to get a job."
