Become a BAR Sponsor

In 1980, the UNC Black Alumni Reunion (also affectionately known as BAR) began as a small intimate gathering of about 60 alumni. Over 39 years later, BAR has grown to approximately 15 events over the course of four days with an annual participation of 1200—1400 alumni, family and friends. BAR has become a Carolina Homecoming tradition and is the oldest and largest affinity reunion supported by the UNC General Alumni Association.

Annually, BAR events offer alumni the chance to reminisce with classmates who were roommates, suitemates, members of BSM subgroups, fraternities, sororities or a member of a number of other campus organizations. Take this opportunity to showcase your business or just celebrate being a Tar Heel, become a BAR sponsor today!

Questions regarding sponsorship can be directed to Bernadine Cobb ’84, BAR sponsorship coordinator, at or (919) 280-4553.
