    The students at Carolina are very diverse, so trying to give a brief summary of common traits they have is a bit difficult, but I will try to describe them. However, on the one hand, many of them are hard working, intellectual, and have a can-do attitude. On the other, many of them are very stressed out, and to be frank, kind of arrogant.

What’s it like to go to UNC?
1 Answer
  • When you step onto UNC-Chapel Hill’s immaculately landscaped campus, you can sense it’s a place rich in history. Majestic oak trees and centuries-old buildings remind you that this institution opened its doors in 1795 as the nation’s first public university. But don’t think for a minute that the educational offerings are out-of-date. Admission is highly selective (an acceptance rate of 26.7 percent), and Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine consistently ranks the school among the best public colleges in the United States for high-quality academics at an affordable price. Furthermore, UNC-Chapel Hill (along with North Carolina State University and Duke University) is part of “The Triangle”—one of the major centers of education, research, and technology in the South.

  • University Career Services is devoted to helping students and alumni find rewarding careers. The process can start as early as one’s first or second year by taking a pass/fail course called Career Exploration offered by the School of Education and taught by career counselors. Upperclassmen may seek assistance finding internships and study abroad opportunities that may help with future employment. Students and alumni also have access to Careerolina—an online tool featuring job postings, details about on-campus recruiting, dates and locations of career fairs, and contact information for various employers. Staff members skilled in job-search strategies are available to offer guidance, conduct mock interviews, and to help craft resumes, cover letters, and even social media profiles. University Career Services maintains a blog that profiles different career options and offers advice about common concerns job seekers share.
