The UNC Bucket List

This post has been updated with information about the Order of the Bell Tower’s bucket list.

With help from the Order of The Bell Tower, The Daily Tar Heel has provided a Bucket List of 100 things that every student should do before he or she graduates from UNC. Some are less difficult to accomplish than others, but all are worth trying out in your four (or more) years as a student at UNC.

Bloggers at Pit Talk will be giving advice on how to complete all 100 items, but feel free to leave your comments and suggestions below.

The General Alumni Association sponsors a bucket list book — True Blue — which you can learn more about by clicking here.
