The class of 2020 will go to Carolina in their minds for graduation day due to the coronavirus pandemic. Students who would be turning their tassels on May 10 in Kenan Stadium will mark the day unlike any other class in Carolina’s history.
The stream will include special messages to the graduates, highlights from their time at Carolina and virtual performances by the two a cappella groups: the Clef Hangers, UNC’s oldest all-male a cappella group, which is sponsored by the GAA; and Harmonyx, established in 1995, which focuses on rhythm and blues, soul, hip hop and gospel genres.
A live celebration in Kenan is tentatively planned for this fall.
Other virtual events over the weekend on Carolina’s Twitter and Instagram accounts include images of the Bell Tower lit in blue and video messages from Chancellor Kevin Guskiewicz and New York Times columnist Frank Bruni ’86, the scheduled Commencement speaker.
