Move-in, for general students, begins in just over a month. Some will have already moved in and started by the beginning of August, too. There’s a lot to look forward to: moving into a residence hall, seeing your friends again, meeting new people, Franklin street, the old well, football games, even classes (maybe not classes). Carolina offers breathtaking views, unforgettable experiences, and one of the best communities in the country. What are you most excited about?

With the next edition of our residence hall series, it’s time to visit the most populous of the first-year residence halls: Hinton James. There’s something for everyone here, and with ten stories, it truly is a diverse place.

While there is ample information about the residence halls on the official housing website, it doesn’t provide context and personality to the place you’ll be calling home next year! This series of posts will give a closer look, from a former resident’s perspective – there’s much more than meets the eye in every residence hall.
The first residence hall is Craige – where I lived my first year.
