33,000 people took time out of their Mother’s Day to honor the class of 2014 Carolina graduates in Kenan Memorial Stadium.
The UNC registrar estimated that nearly 6,000 people graduated Sunday, with 3,730 receiving their bachelor’s degrees.
Folt began the ceremony by talking about something that makes UNC students so unique.
MORE TO COME

“What is the special sauce that keeps Carolina special?" Folt asked. "I’ve got a pretty good idea of the answer: you."
And her reminder to the graduates provided one of many memorable moments.
