I graduated in 1972 from UNC-CH. Dean Smith was our basketball coach. Chapel Hill was a lot smaller. UNC owned the water company, the power company, and the telephone company. A lot has changed, but I still love Chapel Hill.

What a beautiful and historic campus. Walk the length of the quad, visit the Bell Tower, and don’t miss the Ackland Art Museum.

I couldn’t have asked for more perfect weather to take a guided walking tour of The Arboretum with my friend Terry. Brought back fond memories of my time at Howell Hall when the J School was there. Spring is my favorite season in Chapel Hill...More

Very pretty and well groomed campus. Franklin street has many cool places to eat and hang out. I was pleasantly surprised.

You’ll enjoy walking around the quaint campus of UNC when school is not in session (breaks, weekends) so you can find parking. Spring is a beautiful time to go.

Beautiful campus and great school! It is a very large campus but has a small town feel. The quads are large and very green and the buildings are old and majestic.

Wonderful school and beautiful campus! My daughter attends there and has enjoyed every minute of her time spent there. We like to visit and just walk around the beautiful campus.

Nice campus. Love how the football stadium is surrounded by trees. Lively and lovely, there appears to always be something going on. Lots of mature trees. Campus is kept very clean.

We were here for a destination wedding and stayed in two hotels right amongst the campus. We had several good walks around. The spring blossoms were out and nice green grass. Everything seemed spotless. Many...many buildings with nice construction. Of course everyone was quite young....More
