We walked through and drive through quite a bit if the campus. It's is a nice campus. Spread out and more if a city campus than a large quad type of campus. Beautiful athletic facilities. Not quite Ivy League though.

For complete transparency, I have travelled to UNC multiple times for collegiate competition AGAINST Uncle. However, it is a beautiful, friendly, accessible campus. It is beautifully kept and it is near food, entertainment, bookstores, unique shops...and the climate...wow!

It was a great opportunity to return to Chapel Hill and visit with college friends. We returned to places that were there during college days and experienced new venues, also. Still wonderful, after all those years!

I love my graduate school campus. Seriously, I have to walk through it constantly, and I STILL insist that any out-of-towners come for a walking tour to see the gorgeous school buildings and greenspaces. It's easily walkable, and you can hop over to Franklin Street...More

What a buzz when on campus. Great school to visit but holy cow to get a t shirt at a decent price can't be done. Gift Shops are a rip off!

A beautiful college campus steep in traditions, known for its academic quality. Old buildings have been modernized, but keep their old-style charm.
