University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill
Our College of the Week is the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
The University of North Carolina is the United States' first public university: it opened its doors to students in 1795.
Over 3,000 undergraduate students produce original research.
The Class of 2020 boasted these numbers:
33% captained a #varsityteam
36% conducted research outside of class
16% founded an #organization
Admittance to #ChapelHill is highly competitive, and state law in #NC requires a high percentage of students to be in-state students (18-25%, depending on the #publicuniversity). This leaves fewer spots for out-of-state students, which includes #internationalstudents.
