Student Voices: Returning to Chapel Hill

I have always wondered if the alumni of other universities refer to their campus and their time in college as “magical” as often as a UNC graduate.  Living in various cities far from Chapel Hill after graduation, I have heard few friends and colleagues wax poetic about their time at university the way a Tar Heel has a habit of doing.  What created the bond to the school and the town varies from person to person, but we all felt a connection and knew we were lucky to be a part of the Carolina family.

MBA Grants: Which are Right for Me?

There are a number of MBA grants and fellowships available to students to help fund their academic careers. UNC provides financial aid to eligible students, which includes student loans and MBA fellowships, but a number of outside organizations also award MBA grants to business school students.
