Anonymous asked: If I plan on double majoring in PWAD and Global Studies, is it a bad idea to just take a really basic math? Or does that somehow look bad to potential grad schools?
I don’t think it would be a big deal at all. Your major isn’t math or science related, so I imagine you would be fine. I would suggest talking to an academic advisor first, but you should be fine. Perhaps take a statistics course.
Hey first years! Just wanted to make a list of things you should be doing in the next month or so, especially before orientation.
Hope you all have a great graduation and summer!
Anonymous asked: I applied to a LLC about five weeks ago and still haven't heard back. Because it said 3-4 weeks, I tried contacting them through phone and email to make sure they had my application and all. Do you have any advice on what to do in this situation?
I think that the best thing to do would be to call and/or email them, which you’ve already done. Maybe they simply skipped over your application accidentally, and your call or email will remind them.
Anonymous asked: What are the best places to eat?
There are a ton of great places in Chapel Hill to go eat!
If you’re looking for a sit down restaurant, I recommend going to Spanky’s or Top of the Hill. Spanky’s has delicious food. TOPO is a Chapel Hill classic with a great environment. You can even sit outside and look over Franklin Street. I’ve heard that 35 Chinese Restaurant is really good-it has an all you can eat buffet. I’ve never been there myself, but many of my friend recommend it. If you’re looking for something fast, there are many different options. Buns is a burger place, kind of like 5 guys. It is delicious. Biskis is really good-i’ve heard they have great wraps. My friends and I always order the dozen cookies, which are INCREDIBLE and can be delivered at any time. I highly recommend trying them:) I also recommend YoPo or sweet frog-both of which are frozen ice cream places. Sugarland on franklin is also amazing and has delicious cupcakes. There are so many options, you really can’t go wrong.
Anonymous asked: What can you tell me to convince me to go to UNC?
Well, we don’t want to convince anybody of anything, but let them see for themselves. UNC is a fantastic school with great people, food, and academics. The school is the best value in public education in the nation. However, there are many great schools and each person has to find their fit. Maybe UNC isn’t right for you and maybe it is. Take a tour and find out.
Anonymous asked: Do you know if it's possible to be in both the Journalism school and the Business school? I would like to double major in Business and JOMC but I'm not sure if that would work. I plan on going into public relations, so I would also like to have some business background. Thanks!
I know UNC offers a business and journalism degree (http://www.jomc.unc.edu/businessjournalism), but I’m not 100% sure if it’s focused in public relations. However, it does incorporate journalism and business. You could also minor in business and focus on Journalism since that is your major field. It’s def a question I would ask an academic advisor. If anybody has any more comments, feel free to comment.

Anonymous asked: How do you delete a Living-Learning Community application? I started one to see what the application entailed, but I'm so far not planning on applying due to lacking time to complete the application.
You shouldn’t have to. As long as you just apply for regular housing, you’re fine. Just leave it unfinished.
Anonymous asked: Is there a checklist for incoming first years? I'm really overwhelmed about all the deadlines.
I would suggest looking at this website:
Anonymous asked: I agree with everything you said about students who've never had AP/IB. I also suggest that someone who is nervous about his preparation for UNC (really, almost any first year) should heed some classic advice: don't take more than one lab-based and one heavy reading/writing class the first semester (orientation leaders/advisors can help you choose), sign up for at least 15 credits (so you can drop a class if needed), and take a first year seminar - that prof can help you make the transition.
