GAA Prepares for Alumni

Students can expect to see plenty of alumni at parties and even in some classes trying to relive their UNC experiences during this year's Homecoming weekend.

Alumni are already getting nostalgic by printing up their old class T-shirts and making plans for weekend poker games with old UNC buddies.


General Alumni Association

The General Alumni Association was formed in 1843 by 31 UNC graduates, including former Gov. John Motley Morehead. Their goals were to extend collegiate friendships and support UNC.

GAA membership is open to former undergraduate and graduate students (including those who did not earn degrees), those who completed certificate programs, internships and residencies, as well as staff and faculty. Student memberships are also available. There are more than 67,000 GAA members and 100 alumni clubs worldwide.

The group publishes the Carolina Alumni Review and offers career services, travel opportunities with other alums and social clubs. It is also responsible for organizing UNC’s homecoming each year. The GAA makes its home in the George Watts Hill Alumni Center, located near Kenan Stadium.
