Information Session: Yes - The information session was very informative, cleared up many questions that I had already planned to ask and was overall very nice and professional.
Campus Tour: Yes - The campus is beautiful and there's so much history involved. The quad is beautiful and lush with green trees, similar to the rest of the campus.
Classroom Visit: Yes - Classrooms looked very technologically advanced and I was quite impressed. The seats were very comfortable and plush. A white board and projector were in the classroom as well.

Campus Visit Notes for University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
The restaurant where we had food at was delicious. Small restaurants were everywhere and that's great for someone looking to eat healthy, non-fastfood meals. Since we got off the interstate, we were in awe at how beautiful the area around the campus is. Being in the research triangle, Duke and NC State (I believe) are not even 10 minutes from each other. For reference. The hotel we were staying at had a view of a Duke medical clinic (or something along those lines) right outside our room and the drive to the UNC Admissions Office was only 8 minutes. There's really no other way to describe what UNC Chapel Hill is like without either going there, checking out some pictures, or watching a video. The beauty of the campus can be seen everywhere. Not only in the outside areas but inside as well. The classroom we visited had blinds and a projection screen that automatically came down, along with a white board and plush, comfy chairs. Although the flip up desktops were somewhat on the small side, they would still be an ample space to take notes and whatever else you may be doing in the classroom. They also said that only 10% of classes at UNC have more than 80 people in them and that 40% of classes have less than 20 students. It may seem like a large school, but they said that after freshman year, the likelihood of being in a 100+ person lecture room is very slim.
Dining/Restaurant Recommendations or Comments:
All the restaurants around UNC Chapel Hill are so diverse. If you want Chinese food, you can get it. If you want Italian food, you can get it. Diversity isn't just on campus but off campus as wel
