LDOC is coming, and whether you’re a recreational drinker, a competitive putt-putter or the only person left in America who hasn’t seen Black Panther, events on and around the University’s campus will be catering to your every need.
Friday marks the final day of classes for the University’s 2018 spring semester. For many of-age students, that will mean visiting a mixture of Franklin Street bars, fraternity houses and overcrowded apartment rooms for one final drink-fest to close the school year. Live music and overly-complicated party gimmicks will be abundant throughout Chapel Hill to support those festivities.
Staying hydrated and fed will be crucial for students indulging in these activities. The Interfraternity Council is partnering with the Chapel Hill Campus and Community Coalition to pass out snacks and water to students free-of-charge at two separate stations throughout the day. One station will be set up in Fraternity Court, and the other can be found in front of Pantana Bob’s.
Students choosing not to go the drinking route have plenty of other options for a lively LDOC. The University has collaborated with student organizations to ensure that a variety of unique events will be happening on-campus from 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.
Among the list of activities, a cookout in Rams Quad will be hosted by the fraternities and sororities of The National Pan-Hellenic Council. The cookout will begin at 3 p.m., and it will include a DJ and multiple fraternities and sororities competing to create the best dish. Richard Hall, a member of Alpha Phi Alpha, said a big turnout is already expected.
