UNC alumni parents, grandparents and family members of currently enrolled students are invited to the George Watts Hill Alumni Center for a special Legacy Pinning Ceremony to welcome current UNC students into the Carolina family. Be a part of this Carolina tradition, which honors past and present Tar Heels, and celebrates the ties that bind your family to ours.

Registration is now open for all legacy students. Seniors and senior parents should have received an email on Aug. 30 at noon (EDT). All other current students and their parents were sent an email on Sept. 6 and are now able to sign up. Student emails were sent to their UNC email address. If you sign up prior to your designated time and capacity is reached with seniors on the waitlist, your registration may be cancelled. If you did not receive an email from the General Alumni Association, please contact us at

Please note that the registration will be made in the name of the alumna/alumnus pinning the student. Students may complete the registration form for their alumni family member. The registration should include everyone who will attend, including the student.

Light refreshments will be served during a reception following the ceremony.
