I will be in Chapel Hill pretty much all summer, might get a summer job but I'd love to start making connections too. Let me know if you (or anyone) wants to grab a beer/coffee sometime!

One of my final 2 options.


Anyone know if there has been any update on the Facebook page for Admitted Students? I very well may need a roommate.

I haven't heard anything yet. I know some schools offer housing/roommate placement resources through their admissions office though, you might contact them to see if there is anything like that.

Hey y'all! I know this is not that important, but does anyone know what events, especially theatre and sports, we get free admission to as students?

I think I read that we get free admission to baseball and football games with our one card but I am really not sure about anything else

All sporting events are free! For basketball though, you enter a lottery and if you get selected, you are given two tickets. All other sports are guaranteed admission. Not sure about theatre. I know there are lots of accapella groups but they normally have a small fee ($3-8ish range).
