Good Morning and Happy Thursday!
As an out-of-state student, I never had the option to go home during my first year at UNC. While other kids were getting their laundry done and receiving home-cooked meals, I was left on campus with the other out-of-staters or kids from too-far-away North Carolina.
I didn't realize what impact that would have until I was alone most weekends in September with nothing to do with my not-21-year-old self. Eventually everyone came to their senses and began to stick around the Hill most weekends, but I had already weathered countless eerily-quiet Saturdays and Sundays on my own.
So, if you're like me and you're looking for something to do this weekend, check out our event guide. I compiled it myself, and I'd classify myself as an expert in seeking out activities, so you know it comes from a reliable source.
(Hint: There are lots of dogs involved)
