Spend some time walking around campus, it is unique and pretty. Trees and trails are around campus that are very pretty and fun to explore also. We went during the summer, so campus was a little dead, but it was definitely worth the visit!

UNC is old school charm with cutting edge academics. The athletics are internationally recognized as some of the best. Chapel Hill is the perfect college town.

Visited the campus because of my son's graduation. Took pictures all around the famous landmarks - the old well, clock tower, quad and of course the basketball stadium. Had a nice tour and watched video at planetarium. Walked all along Franklin Street with lots of interesting and iconic local restaurants and of course the chain restaurants as well.

Visiting my nephew, who works on the UNC campus, was very pleasant, despite the coming hurricane which blew through two days later, downing a gorgeous old tree near the stately library. The campus, located in a trendy, downtown area, is full of beautiful older buildings, surrounded by magnificent trees which can best be described as having southern ivy-league charm. A... More

It's always a joy to walk the grounds of Chapel Hill. The trees are magnificent, the squirrels are delightful, and the students are very inspiring.

I attended the 2-year second-bachelor's degree program, and I finished when I was 42. As of this day in November 2016, I have been an RN... More
