While most seniors have made countless memories at UNC, next week is filled with opportunities for them to make more.
A series of community-building events will be held as part of “Senior Week,” hosted by the Senior Class Marshals.
The celebrations include a social at He’s Not Here, a dinner at Sutton’s Drug Store, the annual bell tower climb, trivia night at Linda’s Bar & Grill and a game of bar golf.
“We really hope that we get to go out with a bang, and that we get to really just spend some time with the people who have made this experience worth it over these past four years,” Senior Class Vice President Keisha Solanki said.
On Monday, seniors can watch the Carolina Skies star show for seniors at Night at Planetarium at the Morehead Planetarium. That same day, the first 180 seniors at He’s Not Here will receive a free Blue Cup courtesy of the Senior Class Marshals.
“I'm excited that all these events and traditions and excitement really get to bring together all the people that I've spent these four years with,” senior Chloe Stiles said.
Tuesday will feature the annual “Last Lecture” at McCorkle Place with a surprise lecturer to be announced closer to the event. Last year’s guest was former UNC men’s basketball head coach Roy Williams.
Additionally, seniors can sign up for time slots to enjoy dinner at Sutton’s on Tuesday evening. Sutton’s typically closes at 2:30 p.m. on weekdays but is making an exception for UNC seniors.
Wednesday’s senior week event is the longstanding tradition of climbing the Morehead-Patterson Bell Tower. This year, a carnival-type event will be set up at the base of the bell tower for seniors to enjoy caramel apples, yard games, popcorn and more.
