University Description
According to the school, since its establishment as the nation's first public university in 1789, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill has earned a reputation as one of the best universities in the world. Our unique school spirit has been forged through more than two centuries of academic excellence, public service, and athletic, professional, and personal achievement. Often called a 'public ivy,' Carolina is known best for: One of the strongest and most diverse student bodies in the nation -- a community, composed of students from every state and more than 100 countries, that has produced more Rhodes Scholars over the last 25 years than any other public university; Academic opportunities that will prepare students to change the world -- innovative programs not found anywhere else, such as our respected and inclusive Honors Carolina Program, and opportunities to contribute to ground-breaking research and study abroad in more than 70 countries. Admission is competitive, but we strive to make it fair & humane. We don't use formulas or cutoffs; no one is automatically admitted or denied because of a single number. We read each application one by one. Students travel many different roads to Carolina and we celebrate the variety of interests, backgrounds, and aspirations they bring. At the same time, we seek excellence. We focus first on academics, using a variety of information; courses, grades, test scores, recommendations, essays; to help us assess performance and potential. We also seek excellence in arts, athletics, leadership, service, citizenship, and character. This list isn't exhaustive or prescriptive; when we read your application, we'll be interested in what you've done & what you care about. Those things that make you the unique person you are. Just by applying for admission, students may be considered for a number of special opportunities such as assured admission to business and journalism and for fellowships in research and study abroad; Outstanding merit-based scholarships, such as the Morehead-Cain, Pogue, and Robertson, as well as a need-based aid program that that meets full need and enables qualified low-income students to graduate debt-free through the Carolina Covenant. One beautiful campus -- a classic university setting within the dynamic town of Chapel Hill, where friendly classmates, exciting events, and state-of-the-art resources are only a short walk away.
