Campus Resources

It is easy to receive help on campus; you just have to ask.

Resources, resources, resources

If I tried to tell you about all of the Housing and other on-campus resources in this one blog post, I’d be typing for a very long time. Hopefully that says to you that there are lots of resources here at UNC! Tons, really. Looking for help in any way, shape or form? There is an on-campus resource for that.

For the sake of time and reading on your part, I’m going to compile a list (that is in no way totally complete because I probably won’t even get to the 600+ student organizations that can be amazingly helpful). If you are interested in knowing more about any of these, click the links.

        Also, if you tend to be forgetful and don’t remember where this list is, talk to your RA. Believe it or not, part of your RA’s training involves becoming a resource in and of themselves. They aren’t experts on every aspect of the Chem. Department, but talk to a third-year RA and they can just about tell you anything you need to know about UNC. No joke.
