Chair’s Greetings

Greetings BAR Heels!

It is with great pleasure that I celebrate my 20th UNC class reunion by serving as your 2023 BAR Chair. I am extremely excited for this opportunity and look forward to celebrating our Tar Heels with you all.

The committee and I are committed to planning a weekend of fully in-person events, with the return of some of your favorite events and the addition of new activities to keep you on your toes.

BAR will take place Nov. 8-12, our host hotel will be the Sheraton Chapel Hill and the Tar Heels will face the Blue Devils in Kenan Stadium on Saturday, Nov. 11.

Please note the following:

  • BAR weekend and Homecoming WILL take place on the same weekend this year.
  • The Student Alumni Dinner will be held on Wednesday, Nov. 8.
  • The Light on the Hill Society Awards Gala will be held on Thursday, Nov. 9.

On behalf of the committee, I would also like to thank this year’s sponsors and community partners for their gracious support and dedication to this reunion.
