In the tradition of the former UNC Fall “Bizarre,” the Graduate Student Association will be hosting the UNC Local Business Fair during the fall semester opening weekend in the giant tent on the Candelaria Lawn!

The Local Business Fair is the perfect place for companies and organizations to introduce their products and services to members of the campus community as they return from summer break. With over 10,000 students, 500 faculty members and 1,600 staff members, the campus community is equal to approximately 11% of the population of the City of Greeley!
