Reasons to attend and to not attend UNC – Chapel Hill

To Attend

  • “It’s the essential American college experience, the kind you see in movies almost.”
  • “It has an edge too. there is an arts scene and interesting music venues you can go to.”
  • “Sports are a big part of the school, so if you are in any way athletically inclined it’s a great place to be because there are so many club sports and other opportunities that are awesome and well-funded. Also, cheering for teams here is massive, everybody’s all in for that.”
  • “The academics are unreal. You’re going to have a great education.”
  • “The community at UNC. Everyone is super friendly. It’s great to have Franklin Street to go, meet a bunch of people, and hang out.”

To Not Attend

  • “If you are the kind of person who needs to see more people like you doing what you do to succeed. For instance, if you wanted to see more minority professors or leaders, don’t come to UNC because you won’t see that.” [About 5% of professors are Black and 73% are White.]
  • “School is very hard at UNC. You have to be ready to commit your time to school.”
  • “I’m from the Midwest, but the school can be a lot more Southern than I’m used to. I think anybody from the North is taken back by that. It’s more Southern than I anticipated.” [About 82% of students come from North Carolina. 40% of the in-state students in the Class of 2022 are from rural North Carolina counties.]
  • “It’s big, so it can be very overwhelming and takes a little bit of time to get used to.”
  • “If you’re not willing to put yourself out there and be open to other people.”
