University of North Carolina Review
Franklin Street runs along the northern edge of the campus, which is filled with oak-shaded courtyards and stately old buildings. Regarded as one of the top public institutions in the United States, UNC Chapel Hill is also one of the country's oldest public universities and was the first to admit students (it opened its doors in 1795). To this day, it remains the very heart of Chapel Hill, which has grown up around it for more than two centuries.
