  • June 9 - Merit Pit Bull Adoption Event - I am biased on this one because my dog is part pit bull, but please come check out these lovable dogs and maybe take one home. Bonus: There's beer! (Beer Study)
  • June 9 - Summer Kickoff at Kessing Outdoor Pool - Beat the heat with a day of pool games and pizza at UNC's outdoor pool. Now that the rain has finally stopped, I know we could all use a break from these hot summer days. (Kessing Outdoor Pool)
