you must take one of each
Try searching using ConnectCarolina. There are hundreds of classes that fulfill the HS requirements, and some of them are really cool. I have no specific recommendations (I like history, so I don’t know how helpful I’d be), but just know that there are many options to choose from.
I would suggest filling it out ASAP and perhaps contacting the people in charge of that.
I would suggest going to Davis or Wilson-you should be able to access the computers there.
If you go the front desk, they should be able to help you. it is a public library so there is public access.
Great question, actually. Tons of people eat in the dining halls alone. It’s definitely not a big deal. No one is going to judge people for eating alone, because everyone has a different schedule and different times that they can eat. Actually, I eat in the dining halls by myself almost all the time, because I use that time to just relax and do my homework. Definitely don’t worry about that. Eating alone in college is perfectly fine, and very common!
Each semester varies a little bit, but for the Fall 2013 semester, classes run from August 20-December 4, which is about 16 weeks. If you have a Block or Weekly plan, you can definitely make it last as long as you budget your meals wisely. This past year, I had the Weekly 14 plan, so I ate about 2 meals in the dining halls per day, and that worked really well for me. I would say that you definitely don’t need to worry about running out of meals as long as you plan it out a little bit! Also, you can change your meal plan after the fall semester with no penalty, so if you don’t like your meal plan for the fall semester, you can change it.
Actually, if you place over GERM 203, you don’t have to take any foreign language in college, unless you want to! You only need 3 levels of a foreign language for the General Education Requirements, which would be 101, 102, and 203. So, you don’t have to take GERM 301 unless you want to! However, if you’re an incoming freshman, I would recommend waiting at least a semester before taking GERM 301, since it’s a 300 level class and will be pretty advanced. But in the end, only you can decide what’s right for you. But the bottom line is that you don’t have to take any foreign language at UNC unless you want to!
I think the correspondence sections only apply if you’re taking an online or part-time class, so that doesn’t apply to full-time students. I’ve never had to do anything involving a correspondence section.
Franklin Street is a great place to look for jobs, as there are plenty of restaurants and little stores there, and usually, at least a few places are looking to hire people at any given time. So Franklin Street is a great option. The housing department is a great option, as well. I’m working for them this summer and next year, as well. They have lots of jobs just for students. Campus Rec is also a big employer for students. Just try checking all of those places and I’m sure you’ll find something!
I never took the bus to and from the airport, but if you use: http://www.triangletransit.org/ you should be able to figure it out! I used it quite a few times to go from place to place!
I’m not 100% sure. I’m actually not sure if there is a “class president” so much. i know there is a senior advisor or president and student body president, but I’m not very involved in that. I would suggest looking at this website: http://execbranch.web.unc.edu/class-of-2016/getting-involved/ for more information or emailing some of the people listed on the page
None of us have lived there, so I’m not sure. If anybody knows the answer to this, feel free to comment.
I looked at the housing website, and it doesn’t look like Ram Village 2 comes with microwaves; however, the housing department does supply a stove, oven, and refrigerator. Here’s the link so you can check it out: http://housing.unc.edu/residence-halls/ram-village-2
I’ve heard good things about both programs. You’re learning a new language, so either way it is going to be a little bit difficult. It just matters which one you’re more interested in.
It depends on your major and what’s required. If you’re majoring in biology or chemistry, take chem 101 or biol 101.
If you’re majoring in something non-science related, I would suggest astronomy if you’re good at math or take geology.
Yes, absolutely. That is by far the best deal.
They will not become available for a few months.
Pros- recently renovated, smaller than Hojo, closer than Hojo, mostly first years
Cons- still on South Campus, bathrooms are a little old
Still a great dorm, though!
Yes, it’s very simple. I also missed the June 15th deadline because I was a procrastinator too (still am). Just get it in as soon as you can!
Great point! Thank you!
Honestly, just simple spiral notebooks should suffice. College is not like high school; you don’t need dividers or binders unless you want them, and professors (for the most part) will not care what you use.
It depends on whether or not you’ll have a meal plan or how much fast food you’ll eat. If you have a meal plan, I’d say around 50-100 dollars. If not, probably significantly more. You can always reload it if you run low!
I started using a tote bag for a little bit, but I liked a backpack so much better. I think a majority of people use backpacks, some may use others but that’s just what i’ve noticed. To me, a backpack just held more and was so much more convenient. But, different things work for everybody so just try each out and see what you like better!
It’ll be updated as we get closer or you’ll be assigned one when class starts.
I’m not really sure. I’m not entirely sure anyone can actually answer this because no one knows what it was about them that interested UNC. However, being well-rounded will set you apart from others. Don’t just be great at school, be great at community service, at extracurriculars, at writing, etc. Show UNC why they should accept you by making the most of your time in high school by doing meaningful things that matter to you and better you as a person and as an applicant.
As far as I know, yes. But most classes that a first-year will take will have a CTOPS flag, so no worries.
One thing I’ll tell you is that SAT scores don’t matter much here. UNC is not a score school. I did fairly well on my SAT, but I don’t think that was the main factor of my acceptance. I’ve met people here who scored 1700s on their SATs and those who have scored in the 2300s. There is a wide range, so don’t focus too much on the number. UNC cares more about well-rounded students than about a simple number, I promise. However, do your very best to get a great score!
I believe the Morehead-Cain is a full-ride one and there may be a few others.
You’re only required to complete through level 3, so it means less FL for you. Congrats!
No, but you had to have taken it before. For example, if you take Chem 101 first semester but can’t get into a lab, you can take the lab second semester (though this is not advisable), but not vice versa.
There are many. When you go to orientation they’ll give you a spiral notebook that outlines the whole deal! It’s essentially some histories, maths, sciences, foreign languages, etc. Google “UNC academic worksheets” to find out more.
I’ve heard Portuguese is easy, but I strongly advise you to take something that you’re interested in. I’m taking Italian and have ended up loving it, despite the fact that I’m not one for foreign languages. UNC has many to offer, so pick wisely!
i didn’t bring mine and I was fine. It’s your choice-if you already have stuff in your shopping cart, you should be fine.
at least 12 each semester, 18 max unless you get special permission.
Things I would recommend:
- Basics: fridge, microwave, tv, keurig, etc.
- Talk to your roommate/suitemates and find out how they want to do the shower situation. I had a plastic caddy that i put everything in. Some people at granville just leave all their stuff in the shower-your choice.
- A bin to put the stuff underneath your sink in.
- Some kind of laundry basket.
- I have a rod with a curtain to hang over my closet. My closet can get a little bit messy so it’s nice to cover up with. Plus, it’s a nice decorating touch :P
- If you plan on having a tv, I would recommend getting a carpet of some sort unless you are going to put it on the side of the room with the desks. The cable outlet is on the wall closest to the door and the closest electric outlet is on the wall with the desks. I put my tv next to the bathroom door. If I didn’t have a carpet, there would be cords everywhere. The carpet covers them up. It’s also nice to have something comfy to walk on, or if friends come over they can sit on the carpet instead of the hard floor. (sorry if that was confusing..hard to describe:P)
- For any girls, I would recommend getting an extension cord with a few outlets (and surge protector) for next to the sink. My roommate and I had one and it’s nice to leave our straighteners and blow dryer plugged in. Saves time in the morning:P
- GET SOME KIND OF PLUG IN AIR FRESHENER. Because of the way the ventilation is, you’re able to smell everything from rooms above, below, next to you. And sometimes it can stink..alot. We got a wall flower from Bath and Body Works and they work really well.
- Get a lamp for you desk. The light is over the bed, so at night the desk can get dark.
- Some kind of organization for underneath the bed. I have 3 big rubbermaid containers to put my towels, sweatshirts, cardigans, etc in. And then I have two small rubbermaids to put my shoes in. One of my friends has storage containers with drawers that are really nice. It helps keep things a little bit more organized!
- I bought plastic crates from walmart to put on the shelves in the closet. I put my food and bowls and stuff in them. Again, helps to keep stuff organized.
- XL bed stuff-i would suggest getting an extra layer or foam pad for the beds.
- I would bring a swiffer or broom of some sort. The floors can get a tad bit nasty:P
- This isn’t a dorm item-but one thing I would recommend getting is a wristlet. I put my granville card, room keys, student one card, credit card, money, etc. Carrying a wallet around can get a little bulky. It’s easy and convenient to carry a wristlet, especially to just grab and walk down to the agora with. It’s nice to have something in one place without having to carry around a big wallet. ((( something like —-> http://www.verabradley.com/product/Category/Wallets-and-Wristlets/All-in-One-Wristlet/154832/defaultColorVariantId/176676/c/638/sc/890/p/154832.uts?fromSearch=1 )))
I loved them! They have tons of equipment. I loved going to classes as well like zumba. Lots of fun!
no-they’re looking for a well rounded student. An 80 is not going to ruin your chances of getting into UNC. They will look at all your grades and your course load, as well as the activities you were involved in. Work hard in all your classes, keep your grades up, and be involved in extracurriculars.
I would suggest really trying to get to know the professor through office hours. I got to know a few of my professors well enough by the end of first semester I would have been comfortable asking them.
If anybody knows the answer to this, feel free to comment! thanks!
I would suggest just contacting somebody within the orchestra and asking them through email.
If anybody has taken French 203, feel free to comment! thanks!
I would suggest looking at myedu.com or blinkness.com as they should have more information. I didn’t take french, and i’m not sure if any of the other carolinaadvice writers have.
They live on the floor their assigned-really just depends on the dorm you’re in. Mine lived in the very center of the floor.
I’m not sure myself and I couldn’t find it online. I would contact the Financial Aid office. They should have more information. If anybody knows the answer to this, feel free to answer!
There are a few people who bike. I feel like within campus alot of people walk, just because it’s easier (it can get a little bit hectic in between classes and alot of people or crossing paths). But there are alot of bike racks around campus. It’s probably more helpful if you live on south campus, but there are also buses and stuff.
For public health, you have to get permission through the school in order to double major. I believe you also have to get permission through the business school. I would contact the schools for more information. To prepare yourself, just take all the prereqs you need to and do as good as you can in them. Get involved on campus as I know that is an important part of the Busi School app.
I would just suggest filling the form out before June 15th. It’s a really easy form to fill out-it’s a few pages I think? It should only take you 30 minutes or an hour max.
I would contact admissions for more information on this-I’m not 100% sure myself.
If anybody knows, feel free to comment!
I just brought a large shower rod that could expand. I think it really depends on the dorm you’re in as well.
I wouldn’t say there is so much of a “hate” culture. However, there is alot of school pride. You will not go anywhere on campus and not see one person at least who is wearing a carolina shirt. I’ve never been in the stands of a game and felt we were being “blatantly disrespectful.” However, as any Carolina student knows, UNC is not the biggest fan of Duke. People will joke about how they don’t like duke or other schools, but stuff like that is going to be a part of any school where the athletic programs are large.
If anybody who lived in craige can comment, we would appreciate it!
