I know almost everyone here is stressed out about their admissions. Thats why I think this thread is so important. Great academics at a great cost was probably the main reason I want to go to Chapel Hill. But I know we all want to knwo about the stuff they don't put in the college catalogs and assorted websites. What is the social scene like? I have spent a night on Franklin St and I had a blast.
Of course I hope to broaden my horizens with the arts and sciences, but the college lifestyly is something that can never be replicated.

Am I the only one who is tired of talking about admissions all of the time? All of this talking makes me antsy.

Chapel Thrill, Chapel Hell, or just Chapel Hill. You decide what to make of it.

That is so true....I've made my choice, I'm going there so I might as well make it the best.

Has anyone ever been to the Halloween party on Franklin Street? Its supposed to be off the hook. I tried to go last year but I got stuck in traffic in Raliegh and my DD got tired of listening to my loud drunk ass. Comments?

Franklin Street on Halloween is off the hook if you are 30 years old and have two kids. It seems to suck more and more every year. However, if you are looking for a more wilder, mardi-gras, girls girls girls type Halloween, then just head down to Greenville/ECU in their downtown area. I went down there this past year with my friends, and it puts Franklin Street to shame. There is a major difference, and Greenville on Halloween seems to be more fun for those 17 to 27, while Chapel Hill is a much more family type crowd.

That's what I like about NC, there are sooo many different schools down there.

I agree with hoopla on Franklin Street being too "family, kiddie, and boring" when compared to the Halloween event in downtown Greenville, which is just 100% fun, wild, and crazy. The only bad thing is that if you don't have a car or if you don't want to drive 2 and a half hours away to Greenville, then you are stuck. I know people that actually go down to ECU/Greenville almost every weekend, people from UNCG, here, NC State, Central, Shaw, Dook, and etc...
Lesson number one to all freshman- find someone with a car so you can go places off campus because it gets boring around here sometimes.

Overall, Socail Scene gets a 5 out of 10 in my book.
