16: Reflection | After researching UNC Chapel Hill I have decided that it is not my first choice for the school I want to attend. One thing I liked about UNC Chapel Hill is the campus. Though I have only visited there a few times when my brother was looking for a college to attend, I liked the general feel of the campus. Even after researching it I have little desire to actually go to this school.One interesting thing I found while doing my research was that at one time the schools mascot was a real ram which had been named Rameses. Though I do not plan on going to this school it still seems like a nice place.
