I am probably biased as a NC native and the mother of a child attending UNC, but this campus is hard to beat. It's gorgeous, with beautiful architecture, lovely shaded areas to help escape the heat and such a welcoming community.

UNC has a charm factor that one doesn't find at every university. It's worth taking time to walk about, sit by a fountain, and just take in the beautiful grounds. While it might not come up to the beauty of UVA, it is a great...More

Really good campus with lots of options. Has a big school feel with a less dramatic affect. Many options on campus for dining and close to stores. Clean campus

When school's not in session, probably the easiest place to park for a campus walk is on Country Club Road near the Admissions Office. From there you can easily stroll to the Forest Theater, Wilson and Davis Libraries, The Student Stores, the main academic campus...More

This is such a beautiful campus, and with so much history. As big as this university is, the campus has a hometown feel with a laid-back elegance any North Carolinian can be proud of. Be sure to see the Morehead Planetarium, it is marvelous. And...More

Beautiful! The day was rather hot but the campus tour was very informative. Great opportunity to learn about the programs. They show you a lock dorm and the Student ambassador was very informative

We stopped through here on a road trip and had a great few hours there. The people we encountered (summer so not many students) were very friendly. The campus is beautiful and the college town feel was great. We thoroughly enjoyed the basketball museum over...More

Awesome place to walk around. The campus is filled with historical landmarks and is just beautiful. Close to downtown so it's easy to shop, eat and see the campus. Gotta get a picture by the Old Well!
