What Tar Heels are saying

My staff is great and is really dedicated to improving the lives of those who live here.  There is always something going on or music playing (not too loud, though!)”

“My favorite event was when the UNC men’s basketball team played in the Carrier Classic on Veteran’s Day. The projector screen was just put up in the ballroom, so we had a big viewing party. I remember sitting there with about 100 other Tar Heels and lots of food, just getting to know each other and enjoying the game. Now we have viewing parties for almost every game.”
