college tour 01| UNC at Chapel Hill

by - February 13, 2017

In honor of my own school's college tour I decided to go ahead and blog about the schools that I visited this past summer. I do apologize in advance for the slightly random content, but this is what I wanted to show on my blog. :)

I visited 5ish colleges this past summer and found something enjoyable in each and every one of them. My family decided to take a road trip from Alabama to D.C. and decided to stop at various colleges for my own viewing pleasure. Hope you enjoy the insight I learned from visiting each of these colleges and the "insiders advice" I give from meeting with college advisers on their campuses. Without further ado let's get started.

Our first stop was in North Carolina, and I'm sure you can guess the two places we stopped at --Duke and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Both campuses were amazing in the history and educational experiences they offer.

University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

This campus is nothing short of beautiful. We just so happened to arrive just in time for summer graduations and were met with a whole lot of student traffic, but it was still great.

Since we arrived on a weekend (and a graduation weekend at that) we decided to take a self guided tour. Not only did I get to pretend I was a student, but I also got to see a bunch of the cute spots on campus (while of course taking more than my fair share of pictures haha).

This campus has so much history like being the first state university to open its doors because of a constitutional charter or having a plaque that actually recognizes the students who challenged a speaker ban in 1966. (The students wanted to hear from a slightly radical civil liberties activist.)

It also had a large library on campus which  was very gorgeous whiI'm not going to lie warmed me even more to the campus.

The whole campus contained so much history literally in each-and-every nook/cranny. Definitely recommend a visit especially if you're a history buff.

The whole campus was pretty quaint and quiet even with the graduation, and was adorned with well landscaped areas. If I was grading campuses on beauty alone this one would get a definite A!  :)
