Avoid Durham, unless you want to see the home of the far superior basketball teamOriginally posted by FoxDL
Hey there! I am from out of state and know very little about the area. Any recommendations from my fellow Tar Heels about places to live or fun things to do while visiting the area would be appreciated. I look forward to meeting some of you next month!
I lived in Durham and in Chapel Hill when I attended UNC for grad school. I've also had friends that have lived in most of the apartments in the area. If you are interested in something, let me know and I can tell you what I know about them. The best thing is that the buses are free so you can hop on and off, so the apartments near the buslines are good ones. The only bad thing is that if you live too far away, you have to worry about when the last bus runs until and have to make your plans according to that.Originally posted by amfrank
Has anyone gave any thought on where they are going to live? I am trying to figure out the best apartments to live in.
I got one as well. I talked to Randee about it and she said that they will select the 12 people who most need it (financially). Does that mean they send it out to more then 12 and then select from the pool that returns the apps?Originally posted by heifer
did everybody get the board of governors' scholarship app? if not everyone, did anyone else on here? i'm assuming they gave it to at least 12 people.
Have I responded to this one yet? I will. Bright and early, 8:30am, right after flying back home from NYC at midnight the night before!Swiper The Fox said:*bump*
Will anyone else be at UNC on Saturday?
Hey at least u didn't have to email Randee Reid a full week after the big bold due date in the email, telling her u forgot to RSVPheeldoc23 said:I will be there on the 17th as well. I can't seem to find my email however saying when and where to be? Can anyone post this so I can avoid an embarrasing call to the admissions office? Thanks!!!
Could be, but then again I really have no idea. I'm going with khakis to be safe. They also said to bring comfortable shoes, it sounds like we'll be walking a lot.Chemguync said:Oops, I was planning on jeans.. that too casual?
Not a lot of "new information," but interesting to hear different perspectives from current students. There were segments devoted to each of the four years, with students from each class on stage to talk about their lives and answer questions. Community service opportunities throughout the four years were also discussed/stressed. Actually, lunch at the Carolina Inn was probably the only important/good thing you missed, unless you count the free UNC Med t-shirt.ngtah00 said:Hi,
I couldn't make it last Saturday and I was wondering if you could summarize anything important/good that I missed.
Although I just withdrew from UNC, I thought I could still contribute to this discussion... I called their fin aid office a few weeks ago and was told that packages would not be sent out till June 1.ngtah00 said:Thanks Swiper for the update. I want a free t-shirt!
Does anyone know when we will hear financial aid decisions?
Good luck with your move and at P&S!SarahGM said:Although I just withdrew from UNC, I thought I could still contribute to this discussion... I called their fin aid office a few weeks ago and was told that packages would not be sent out till June 1.

Any incoming Tarheels know where they're living yet? My family will be moving into a place in Southern Village at the end of July.
Also, here is the orientation info from last year, most of it is still applicable. There's also a good "ask a second year" forum under the Life At School link: 2003 Orientation Info
