As a senior at UNC, I can’t help but reflect on all of the wonderful things this university has to offer. Read on to find out my opinion of the top 10 things every UNC student should do before graduating.
Experience UNC arts. Whether you are an artist yourself or just an admirer, UNC is home to a vibrant arts community. Performing arts, visual arts, literary arts – you name it, UNC has an organization (or several!) for it. See a Playmaker’s performance. Visit the Ackland Art Museum. Attend a lecture from a visiting author. You won’t be disappointed!
Attend a variety of UNC athletic events. Many students live for UNC Basketball, but why stop there? UNC has amazing soccer teams, a field hockey team, a baseball team; the list goes on. Make it a goal to attend at least one game of each sport!
Join a club or student organization. One of the best things about UNC is the diverse array of interests and hobbies. Chances are if you are interested in something, there are at least 10 other people here who are too. Join a club – or start your own! Continue reading Before you climb the bell tower→
As a senior at one of the best universities in the country, I can think of a million different reasons why I chose and stayed at UNC. But at the heart of all those reasons, it is the people – students, faculty and staff – who make UNC great.
When I began applying for colleges during my senior year of high school, I started by looking at all of the practical factors that go into choosing a school. I wanted to know which university had the best journalism program. I calculated the expenses of each school, because I wanted to get the best value for the best education.
Location was a major factor as well. Being a Tar Heel born and bred, I wanted to go to a school in my beautiful home state. On paper, UNC fulfilled all of those things.
You’ve lived in a traditional residence hall, but now it’s time for a change. So you should move off campus, right? Not necessarily. Read on to find out the top ten reasons you should live in an on-campus apartment.
Less anxiety about money. If you’re like me, you’ve heard horror stories from your friends living off campus about how they divide expenses up among their roommates. The great thing about living in an on-campus apartment is that charges are billed in the same way that residence hall charges are. When you’re not constantly worried about conflicts with others over money, you have more time to focus on what really matters!
Dedicated staff on call 24/7. You live in an off-campus house and you accidentally lock yourself out one night while your roommate is out of town for the weekend. What do you do? In the on-campus apartments, there is a resident advisor, a community director and a facilities representative on call at all times. Any problems you have can be taken care of right away, day or night! Continue reading The Village Life→
