UNC Grad School Culture/Experience

reidtwreidtw 51 replies4 threadsRegistered User Junior Member
I have a question for any current/former graduate students at UNC-Chapel Hill; particularly MBA Students. I would like to know what the culture is like at UNC as a graduate student. I'm familiar with what the environment is like as an undergraduate student, as I have family and friends who are currently attending. I love what I'm seeing and hearing from them, and I would love to call that culture my own. I don't know if it's too late to get that undergraduate experience though, as I am currently in my sophomore year at another university. I'm wondering if I can get a similar experience as a graduate student, as I would like to get my MBA. The level of academic excellence at Carolina goes without saying, so I know I will be getting a great education. It's the experience that's in question; will I feel integrated into the Carolina Community? Will I be able to experience the excitement of UNC sports and feel involved with the Tar Heel traditions? Or are those things reserved for undergrads, and my time is already up? I'd like to wear Carolina Blue for years into my future, and I would like to wear it proudly. I'm anxious to hear thoughts on this post. Please let me know!

    As a grad student at UNC, I never set foot on the “undergrad portion” of the campus until graduation at Memorial Hall. My classmates embraced the athletic portion of UNC and attended football/basketball games regularly if they attended non rival undergrad programs. I attended a rival school (UVA) for undergrad so I never became a “fan” if anything my dislike for all things UNC grew...

    Yes the school spirit permeates to graduate students. I know many UNC MBA's and although their circles revolves around other MBA's and grad students, they still have the same Carolina pride. They tailgate football games, attend basketball games and truly enjoy the Carolina experience. You'll be fine.
