As Carolina has become more attractive, competition at the admissions office continues to increase. The Review devotes in-depth coverage in each March/April issue to this subject, and the features and data found here go back to 1996. Topics have ranged from what it takes to compete, how financial aid works – including the creation of the Carolina Covenant, ensuring students from low-income families can graduate without debt – to how Carolina uses student essays to make admission decisions.
The Carolina Alumni Memorial in Memory of Those Lost in Military Service, on Cameron Avenue between Phillips and Memorial halls, was dedicated in April 2007. The memorial’s bronze Book of Names includes pull-out panels listing names of alumni who lost their lives in battle. They are grouped alphabetically by conflict. Each biographical page includes a link for sharing additional information or comments. Photos are included as available, and photo submissions are welcomed.
This online edition of this memorial, launched in July 2010, includes a biographical page for each of the 715 alumni listed, along with a tool to search by conflict. This information was researched by the GAA’s Records Department, which began work on this project in 2002, and assembled and edited by members of the Carolina Alumni Review staff.
