About the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Since its establishment as the nation’s first public university in 1789, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill has earned a reputation as one of the best universities in the world. Our school spirit has been forged through more than two centuries of academic excellence, public service and athletic, professional and personal achievement. Often called a “public ivy,” Carolina is consistently ranked among the nation’s best in academic quality, diversity, engagement and global presence. Students at UNC-Chapel Hill have access to innovative programs and opportunities to contribute to ground-breaking research and study abroad in more than 60 countries. The University is located in Chapel Hill, a sophisticated college town that’s part of the larger and easily accessible Raleigh-Durham metropolitan area and near the Research Triangle Park.
