TO THE EDITOR:
What would we do if we didn’t have Carolina? It’s hard for me to imagine life without relaxing in the quad on sunny afternoons, cheering for our football team, spending Halloween on Franklin Street and so many other experiences we have at Carolina. I love Carolina, as all of us do, yet occasionally I take it for granted. However, this year on Tuition Free Day we’ll all have a chance to realize the importance of giving back to Carolina.
The Heelraisers Council, an officially recognized student organization on campus with a mission to educate students on the importance of philanthropy, is hosting Tuition Free Day on Monday to raise awareness about the importance of private giving.
This coming Monday is the day that symbolically represents when classes would end if Carolina relied solely on tuition for its annual revenue. Surprisingly, tuition only covers 10 percent of what it takes to run Carolina each year. Stop by the Pit on Monday to learn more about student giving and to see how easy it is to make a donation. Carolina does so much for us. It’s never too early to give back.
