Hi, I'm Peyton from a suburb of Chicago, and I'm a sophomore here at Carolina. I chose to come to come here because of the balance and had I wanted a big school with much people in me. I want a Greek life. I want a good academics, but also like big sports teams and just active student body. And my major is in business with a minor in computer science, all right, and so can you kind of like, describe to us just like the typical student body here at Carolina? Well, I think there's a lot of different types of students. There's people who are really into the school work and people who aren't as much. I think everyone is involved in something, and there's always people who are trying to, like, do this club like five different clubs focusing on school. But they also like to go out. So I think people who like to have balance in their life it makes a social, academic and active things to do. Okay, And then what is your favorite and least everything about Carolina. Uh, my favorite thing is I'm never bored. I'm always very busy. Whether it's going Teo Random sport event, like gymnastics or fencing or going like a Carolina women in business, meaning there's always something to dio My least favorite part is how no. The business school's really far from campus of, you know, a car kind of sex, and there's no parking and parking get set. All right, thanks. Now I am standing in the upper quad, which is called Poke Place, and straight ahead you can see is the Wilson Library. And then to the right is Di Hall, Gardener Hall, Haines Hall. And then to the left is, um, Murphy, Carolina Hall. And in the steel building, which is the home to academic advising, you could make appointments their economic advisors at any time. And then this is the South building, which is home to Chancellor Carol Full. So if ever you want to try and make it a point to the chancellor, that is where you can find her. And then this flagpole, it's kind of interesting. It's called We called the Smokers Pole because it is the only place on campus where you're actually allowed to smoke. You have to be like, within certain feet are certain feat away from a building on DH. So that is the only place on campus that actually needs those requirements. So between classes, um, you will actually see a bunch of students over there at the five pole smoking cigarettes, which I think is kind of gross. But I rather them do it over there than like Everyone. This is the old Well, this is definitely the most well known monument here on Tapajos campus. You've ever been to like any of the UNC websites or see any advertisement? Most likely, you have seen the old well, or you've at least heard of its stories. So it is an actual, like, water fountain. Uh, I'll show you guys, but, um, legend has it if you drink out of the old well on the first day of the new semester, Um, so see into the water, but that if you drink out of it that you will get a four point knows that semester. Um, I tried it the very first. Messer didn't work out for me, but I know a lot of kids that have had luck, and they they swear by it. So in the old well, you can see calm is and everything. And this is a great place to come and take pictures. Especially like for formals in the spring. If you're dressed up and then behind the old while you can see is the lower quadrant. McCorkell place. Um, so, these air, like some classroom buildings, that's a residence hall. Um, and just things around it. I normally don't have classes over here. There's also like like the visitor center over in the corner and like certain, like, specialty buildings and stuff here in the lower quad on DH. Introduce yourself and explain why you changed your school. Hi, I'm Allison, and I chose you and C because the academics here, like unbeatable, were like the top public school in the nation and just the connections. I knew I could make my going here do, like, alum and professors and other students would like, are incredibly smart. I knew was going to help me out in the long run. Describe the student body, your school. Um, we are PW eye, so that means, like, a predominately white institution. I think, like, seventy percent of our population is white. But we also do have a lot of other minorities. Um, I think it's like like thirteen percent Asian. And then it goes on, Um but additionally, it's a lot of stem a lot of Kansai majors. Uh, what's your major? And describe the academic climate. I'm a global studies major. My focus is Latin America, and my concentration is international politics and social movements. And it's it's a lot of classes were like, they don't seem as hard is like chemistry or biology, but they really got you thinking so, like the great race and ethnic relations and social justice and education and classes like that. And I really enjoy that because, like, connecting me more towards the real world, like stuff that I actually have to think about that, like, applied directly to me, Um, not going to say it's like, the hardest major out there, but it's not an easy major. And it definitely forces you to, like, think about some of the things that I usually take for granted. What's your favorite? At least for part of your school? And why I just love that were, like, basically one big community. Like the school spirit here is insane. We all worked really hard to get here, so we're all gonna rep it, like on campus and off campus. My Lisa, you're part would probably have to be Tony. Maybe, like just That's silly the school's fault. But like the regular academics, I just wasn't used to it. But like it's definitely helped me grow. But I mean, like, it still sucks. Not getting like not getting good grades. I used to get in high school, but yeah, yeah. All right, guys, this is my friend Trinity, and she is going to tell you guys about her experience here at Chapel Hill. All right, you guys. So, like she said, my name is Trinity Turlington. I am from Orlando, Florida, and I'm a first year here at the University of North Carolina. I initially came here primarily for the J school, and that is my major median journalism major with the double and management of society. That's awesome. Um, okay. So can you tell us a little bit about the overall, like campus community here at Chapel Hill? Yes. So, as I'm sure I think the mains you nobody here. I can't think. Can't agree with this that we have a very diverse campus. Not only that face value, but we have strong academics, drunks for a strong community on. We all just have a similar goal of trying to make the world just a little bit of a better place. That's awesome. And so can you tell me your favorite and least favorite part about this university? Yes. So I think my favorite part is definitely like I said, that diversity that we have it's fairly easy to find a balance. Of course, it is challenging here, but they provide you a stony different resource is and help you along the way of ensuring that you're very well rounded. That's my favorite part. The beautiful campus is an additional bonus, but my least favorite part is that we cannot double major and double liner. I think a lot of people here Carolina would love that, Even, you know, fifth year seniors. Fun with your senior. That's my choice. You know, I wish we weren't limited to that, but I understand they want us to graduate on time. Well, thank you so much, Trinity. I am currently standing at the corner of Franklin Street, which is the famous road here in Chapel Hill, where all the restaurants and bars and just everything really happened is always happening. This is top of the Hill, one of the most famous restaurants here. It's been around since the nineteen ninety four, and that about third floor balcony is really cool. You can sit up there and eaten. Overlook Franklin Street. See what everyone's up, tio. But there's, you know, a star box and pizza place and ice cream place. Just anything you could ever want you could find on Franklin Street. They have a CVS pharmacy. Pretty much anything you could need you and final on Franklin Street. And that is the heart of Chapel Hill, what it's really known for. But this's also where students rush called, like rushing Franklin Street. If we went a do game or a national championship, and I was lucky enough to actually be a part of that last year, we Duke at home and we also won a national championship, and that is just something that you will never forget. Get? Um, Hey, guys, I'm saying you see, I'm suffering Quincy. Um, so I may dream advertising entrepreneur. Uh, so I think this out of here is definitely very dieter's, which is awesome because you get to interact with a lot of people that maybe I wouldn't otherwise, um, kind of and in a very, you know, close environment, uh, coming from I'm so experienced cries and isn't being able to interact with different people spent almost done, um, and just learning about their stories. I would probably say my fear part about Nancy. The community here, um, it's really been just in awesome. A group of girls who really of the Lord in. Yeah, it's just been really great meeting people, Oliver the country and just really getting to know them on it. Um, and then I would probably say my least favorite part about UNC It's pretty intense school in all respects, whether that be academics are socially. Um, yeah, it's very sensitive. Pretty third place cut their place, but it really is awesome. Um, enough. Gribble of It's much more over the past couple years. Just being in trouble. Hill, uh, being a school that has so much school spirit and just I really love and wanna see their people are growing drive has been awesome. Okay, so right now it is eleven O'clock, Major run lunge, rush hour. So as you can see, there are a lot of lines formed and people are waiting to get lunch so you could get sued. Sorry, men, A deli place or theirs? Over here. We have other three options. One five Chick fil A. There even tell it is like super crowded in here, so you can get there, pay them a card, or you can page have swipes on your stoop count. And so you check out lines here. There's a lot of seating options over there that appears. This is the top of your dining room, so that's like a normal, like Catholic Syria, where they have, like all you can eat on. These students are just swiping in, and then they take the escalator up top. And that's where there are in this food options. And so, as you can see, it's super duper crowded right now. But this is where most people come to eat. We have a choir in her singing. So, yeah, this is where a lot of people come, ian between classes, but it's right in the heart of
