Plan Your Perfect Visit to Carolina

Summer is college tour time! We get the chance to meet so many outstanding students during the summer--students who travel from near and far to tour our campus and learn about our community.

If you're planning to visit colleges this summer, we hope Carolina is on your list. The very best way to find out if Carolina might be the right fit for you is to step onto our campus, talk to current students, and picture yourself here.

Our office offers student-led tours and information sessions daily during the week. You can also sign up to attend a class on the day you visit.

But what else should you see and do during your trip to campus? You could spend days here exploring our campus and the surrounding communities of Chapel Hill, Carrboro, and Durham. Since you probably don't have days (and possibly only a few hours) to get to know our campus, we want to be sure you get to see the things that interest you most.

We asked our Admissions Ambassadors (the friendly students who lead our campus tours) for their ideas about what prospective students should see and do during a trip to campus. We compiled their recommendations online to help you plan your own Perfect Carolina Visit. Check it out.

If you need any help as you plan your visit, please just ask. We hope to see you in Chapel Hill soon!
