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.

Journalism/Public Relations Major, Class of 2012

U What truly sets it apart is its sense of community, which stays with you for life. Even though I graduated three years ago, I still watch every basketball game, check the Daily Tar Heel every once in a while, and say a friendly "Go Heels!" to anyone I see wearing a UNC t-shirt. Once a Tar Heel, always a Tar Heel.

Phil
RTVMP major, Class of 1986

U UNC is often described as the ‘Harvard of the South,’ which is true in many ways, but to me, the variety of education available at UNC is what sets it apart. In addition to being an RTVMP (radio, television, and motion picture) major, I sincerely enjoyed the liberal arts education I received; I feel it made me a well-rounded person prepared for ‘the real world.’ I gained exposure to a variety of cultures and ideologies, and this has shaped my world view. Many non-alumni probably know UNC mostly due to the success of its athletic teams, but Carolina is much more than that. UNC provides an incredible learning environment and serves as on-the-job training for life.

What’s it like to go to UNC?
U 1 Answer
U Answer by: Universities.com

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 But don’t think for a minute that the educational offerings are out-of-date.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. The majority of your classmates will be state residents, as state law mandates that at least 82 percent of each freshmen class be from North Carolina, Everyone, however, should feel right at home. Chapel Hill is known as an awesome college town, with its restaurants and shops focused on the college audience. Students and locals alike enjoy coming together to support Tar Heel men’s basketball—a perennial NCAA powerhouse where greats such as Michael Jordan and Vince Carter got their starts.
