Meet Up With Us Virtually

For UNC’s 227th birthday, we’re expanding University Day into University Days, a week-long virtual celebration to serve, learn and play.

We’re opening the week with jazz and closing the week with brunch, and you’ll find everything in between. Performance, styling, charcuterie, trivia, beer tasting? You’ve got it. Most events are complimentary, and GAA members who sign up and attend get the official Carolina blue TouchTool (think touch-free door opener meets keypad and elevator button pusher). Check it all out, and we can’t wait to see you virtually, Oct. 11-17. #UNCAlumni

Celebrating '75, '80, '85, '90, '95, '00, '05, '10, '15, '20

Throughout this virtual Heels at Home week, we’re celebrating the UNC classes of ’75, ’80, ’85, ’90, ’95, ’00, ’05, ’10, ’15 and ’20 on their milestone years. You should have already heard from us with a link to a digital book we would love for you to contribute to as a way to connect with your classmates. We are so excited to see so many Tar Heels already sharing their updates so don’t forget to do so, too.
