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.
