Dinner with 12 Tar Heels

Bringing the Carolina Family to the Dinner Table

Dinner with 12 Tar HeelsThe SAA is proud to offer Dinner With 12 Tar Heels each semester. The premise of Dinner With 12 Tar Heels is based on one idea: to connect the Carolina family around the dinner table.

Local alumni host a dinner ifor our current Carolina students. As the name suggests, the dinner is for a party of 12 Tar Heels. It sounds simple. One simple meal, however, can spark a lifelong connection. Alumni feel closer to the University, students feel closer to home and the Carolina tradition continues for years to come.

These dinners are held throughout the fall and spring semesters each academic year. SAA members are notified of/invited to upcoming dinners via email.
