Beautiful campus. Check out the old well and find the gargoyles. Easy to get in the stadium. See the bell tower on the way in! Had a great time and looking forward to coming back.

I love taking walks throughout the campus of UNC-CH. It has excellent scenic views and tree filled, sidewalks everywhere you walk. A gorgeous place.

We stopped in Chapel Hill on our way to Hilton Head to get a college visit in. The campus is very large and beautiful. The Dean Smith arena and the baseball field are beautiful

For all you hear about UNC Chapel Hill or "Carolina" as the locals call it, the town is smaller and appears friendly enough. Some beautiful old and newer homes around the campus. Great green spaces and loads of trees and side walks all around. Great...More
