Tar Heel Service Day

To All Who Helped #ServeCarolina: Thank You

338 Carolina alumni and friends served a grand total of 1,281 hours, and 236 Tar Heels laced up for the Tar Heel Service Day 5k in honor of University Day on Oct. 12. #UNCAlumni rolled up their sleeves in 21 states and two countries.

Thank you to all who helped further the mission of the University through service and giving in local communities and beyond. We showed the world what an incredible impact Tar Heels can make, and we are proud to be a part of the Carolina community.

See Tar Heels who made an impact. We’ve collected photos from Tar Heel Service Day celebrated here, there and everywhere. Peek the album.

Joe returned to Carolina as Coordinator of Outreach in 2019 after graduating in 2013 and spending a combined six years in admissions both at Carolina and elsewhere. Born into a Tar Heel family in Virginia, Joe has come to embrace the entire state of North Carolina, and not just UNC, as his home which he shares with his wife and son. He is earning his master’s degree studying the University’s and the state’s history. When it comes to North Carolina barbecue, Joe adamantly believes that vinegar-based is better than tomato-based, but tomato-based is still superior to what all the other states are making.
