Students insist that “there is no better college town in the United States than Chapel Hill,” a Southern hamlet of about 54,000 souls that offers a good supply of part-time jobs, affordable housing, and a mild climate. These fine qualities have not gone unnoticed: Money magazine has before named the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area the “Best Place to Live in the South,” in 2000, and Sports Illustrated named Chapel Hill “the Best College Town in America” a few years earlier. “It’s a great place to live,” says one student. “The people are amazing” and the “campus and city are breathtaking.” As one student puts it, “While you don’t go to law school for the social life, it makes a big difference to have something to do when you actually do find free time.”
“Social life is good” at Chapel Hill because “on the whole, students are very social outside of class.” There are always a multitude of “school-sponsored social events in town” and “parties being thrown by law students to celebrate a wide array of milestones” (for instance, there is a “we just took our second practice exam” party). However, some students lament that there is little to do “for someone who does not drink.”
