While researching this college I found out a lot about its sororities and fraternities and its overall loving community. UNC is a very selective school and because I don't live in North Carolina the out of state tuition is very high and may or may not be the right choice for me because of that. Aside from high test scores and high tuition, I would really like to go UNC because it's a really loving community.
