UNC Alumni Traditions Challenge

UNC Alumni Traditions Challenge

Check out this Carolina Alumni member perk on the Carolina Alumni app that highlights 70-plus traditions and reminds us why it’s always a Great Day to Be a Tar Heel. Our traditions tell the story of our time at The University of North Carolina. They are the foundation of what makes our UNC alumni experience so great, too. The UNC Alumni Traditions Challenge serves as your guide to not only looking back on your time at Carolina, but it also has you look ahead as you make the most of your #UNCAlumni experience. Certain traditions will have you upload photos or write your memories, so get ready to live it up with all those Rah! Rah! Carolina! memories you’ve been holding onto.

Carolina Alumni members can see the full traditions list by downloading and logging in to the Carolina Alumni app.  Need help? Visit our detailed “UNC Alumni” app steps to get started.

As Carolina Alumni members complete the traditions in the app, they’ll be rewarded with prizes, Tar Heel style. Check it out.
