    READ THE DAILY TARHEEL !

    by DAO Updated Dec 14, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The best daily University Newspaper in the country! The Daily Tarheel is available on campus every weekday and is free! Edited and written by the School of Journalism Students, it is well written and informative. In term of political content is slightly left of Stalin and Marx, but you get used to absurd diatribes. Great classifieds and – hey! – it’s free!

    Ackland Art Museum

    by Merrique Written Mar 13, 2005

    The museum is nice inside. When I went the first floor had quite a few paintings from the 16 and 17th centuries. There was also a section of Chinese and ancient India sculptures/pottery. The second floor has 20th century art.

    UNC Botanical Garden

    All plant lovers must visit here. Although a bit small, the UNC Botanical Garden has a large array of diverse plants native to the Carolinas. The gardens are well kept and can only be described as beautiful. There are several sculptures of various animals here, and even a giant chessboard with two feet tall pieces. There is no admission fee, but they do have a small bookstore. There is also some free information on the plants they have there. You can even buy several types of plants here, from pitcher plants to venus fly traps. Not really a tourist activity perse, but this was the highlight of my trip to Chapel Hill.

    The campus of UNC has facilities for baseball and soccer and all kinds of other sports, but none is as well-known as its basketball arena, the "Dean Dome," named after its famous former coach, Dean Smith who coached such all-time greats as Michael Jordan, Phil Ford, James Worthy and Sam Perkins.

    The Old Well

    by acemj Written Mar 10, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The visual symbol of the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is the Old Well, which actually was the main water source for a long time. Later, it was decorated and turned into a symbolic icon modeled after the Temple of Love in the Garden of Versailles. It's considered good luck for students to take a drink from the well at the beginning of each school year.

    This is the symbol of UNC.
    A legend says that if a student drinks from the Old Well on the first days of class, it will bring him good luck throughout the school year...
