At the beginning of the fall semester, there is a multitude of events to help first-years integrate to UNC and meet other first-years. There is Week of Welcome, trivia nights, open houses, games, lectures and lots of free food. But first-years can often be overlooked after that initial welcome, especially during spring semester. The First-Year Focus Council (FYFC) aims to change that with Carolinapalooza.
Carolinapalooza will be held on April 4 at the Forest Theatre. The event is a showcase of the diversity and talent at UNC, as well as the diversity within the first-year class.
There will be a variety of performances from groups such as Ek Taal, the Loreleis and Harmonyx.
“We want (first-years) to see there are all these different groups on campus, they’re not all the same, and each person can find their niche on campus,” said April Turner, a member of FYFC.
Turner said FYFC hopes the chance to see these popular campus groups for free will excite people and get them to come out to the event. There will also be a photo booth, free shirts, stickers and mugs for the class of 2022.
