The Review reaches nearly 72,000 readers, including dues-paying GAA members, student members of the GAA and UNC’s full-time faculty and senior administrators.
Issues from the most recent five years are available to GAA members only, as a benefit of membership in the association; earlier issues are open to anyone. Tools are available for searching, sharing, printing and downloading articles and photos.
To mark the magazine’s centennial in 2012, all 100 years of the Review dating to October 1912 were added to this digital archive. Also available here are digital editions of the University Report, the tabloid newspaper companion to the Review that the GAA first published in 1970, renamed as the University Alumni Report in 1989 and merged into the Review in 1994. It carried Class Notes, obituaries, sports and alumni association news during those years.

Can't wait for the mail to arrive? The digital version of your Jan/Feb '19 Carolina Alumni Review is ready to download. Features stories in this issue include:
Making a Marriage Work – She has been called “top of the heap for next-generation leaders in North Carolina.” Jessica Holmes ’06, the youngest-ever Wake County commissioner, brings an unmatchable perspective to issues such as affordable housing and hunger.
A Soldier’s Story – The 100th anniversary of the end of The Great War passed in the stillness of the absence of those who sacrificed. The remarkable accounts of Quincy Sharpe Mills, who graduated in 1907, remind us of the University’s determination to preserve.
Happy to Stick Around – Not a native, not an alumnus, Bill Roper was hired on the assumption he was a short-timer with expansive career goals. In 22 years, 20 of them as CEO of UNC Health Care and dean of the medical school, he made Carolina and North Carolina his expansion targets.
