UNC Chapel Hill has so much to offer, it really does cater to a wide array of students. A top notch education attracts the best and the brightest of course, but there is so much more to college life that can make or break the experience. Chapel Hill boasts a strong college sports culture so someone with interest in watching (or playing!) sports will find UNC Chapel Hill to be a great match. However, there are other aspects of the social and recreational scene in Chapel Hill that go beyond that of college sports. There is a constant stream of live shows at the Cat's Cradle in Carrboro, tons of local eateries and bars, and relatively close access to the beach and the mountains. So, if you enjoy watching the game with friends at a bar, hiking in the mountains and sleeping in tents, or laying on the beach with good book and an umbrella drink, then you might be a good fit at UNC Chapel Hill.
