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.

Sign up today to “kick” off Homecoming week with an epic showdown between two great teams, Sunday Night Football style.

Mr. and Miss UNC

By crowning Mr. and Miss UNC, the student body votes to showcase two seniors, 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.

Mr. & Miss UNC interest meetings for Fall 2018 will be held Monday, Sept. 10 at 7:00 p.m. in the Church Lobby of the George Watts Hill Alumni Center  and Tuesday Sept. 25 at 7:00 p.m. in the Strayhorn Conference Room of the George Watts Hill Alumni Center.

Apply today.

Due to Hurricane Florence, the application deadline has been extended to Wednesday Oct. 3rd at 5PM.
