We’ll be in the Pit from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. Stay tuned for the full schedule of Pit and evening celebrations, and be sure to tag your photos with #UNCHC.

Mr. and Miss UNC

By crowning Mr. and Miss UNC, the student body votes to showcase two seniors, one male and one female, who exemplify scholarship, leadership and service – the pillars of the Carolina Way. The “Royals” then complete a self-generated service project in which they based their election platform upon. The projects, funded by the General Alumni Association, will work to better the University and the greater Chapel Hill-Carrboro community.

Thank you for your interest in applying to be Mr. and Miss UNC. Please note that the application process has closed for the 2017 year. Please check back this fall for information on the 2018 elections.

Student Organization Involvement

Student Organizations, it wouldn’t be the same without you.  

Have an event during Homecoming Week? We are always looking to promote activities that provide campus-wide engagement and show that signature Carolina spirit. The Homecoming Committee is also excited to partner with organizations around campus to ensure Homecoming is meaningful to all Tar Heels. Contact Homecoming Committee President Hayden Huffman at to collaborate.
