Poll: What Would You Like to See on Campus?

We’re always brainstorming new ways to connect prospective students to the community here at Carolina. We know how hard it can be to get a good feel for a college and figure out whether it might be the right fit for you. Many students only get to come to campus for a brief visit, often during a whirlwind summer tour of colleges. And it’s really hard to squeeze everything we’d like to show you into a 3-hour visit. We do our best, though, and our daily tour and information session aims to give you a good overview of the school. Most importantly, you get to spend time touring campus with a current student who can give you a first-hand perspective of Carolina.

But there really is so much more to see. So this fall, we’re piloting some special visit programs that combine our information session and tour with a more in-depth look at one specific aspect of Carolina:
  • Internship and Career Planning Visit: Meet with University Career Services to learn where our graduates find jobs and graduate study, and how the University helps them get there. 
  • Science Visit: Tour campus laboratories and learn about some of the science and entrepreneurship opportunities here. 
  • Business Visit: Tour the Kenan-Flagler Business School, including state-of-the-art facilities such as the capital markets lab. 
All of these visit programs also include our admissions information session and student-led tour.

Even if you can’t visit this fall, we’d still love to know if these are the types of programs that you would find interesting. So, give us your opinion!

Any other ideas about how we can help you get to know Carolina? Let us know in the comments!
