- What is one thing that we don’t know about you that you want for us to know?
- What about your background, or what perspective, belief, or experience, will help you contribute to the education of your classmates at UNC?

We hope you'll share with us the activities that you've found especially worthwhile. We also hope you won't feel compelled to tell us everything you've ever done or, worse yet, to do things that mean little to you just because you think we want you to do them.
We also hope you'll remember, because we never forget that low-profile pursuits can be just as meaningful as ones that draw more attention, and that fewer activities can be just as good as more, and sometimes even better. Although starting a new club, for example, can be a great experience and helpful to others, so can caring for siblings, parents, or grandparents, or working outside the home to put food on the table, or being a good and caring friend. We hope you won't feel as though you have to do the former, especially if your doing so will keep you from doing the latter.
For all these reasons, although we're glad to receive complete resumes, we don't require or encourage them. Instead, if you choose to submit something that goes beyond what you're providing through your Common Application, we encourage you to keep it brief; focus less on including everything than on choosing and explaining the things that have meant the most to you; and upload it here.
