Two E-Newsletters Merge to Better Deliver News about UNC
Welcome to the new Bear Crossing, which combines the best of two UNC e-newsletters: Inside UNC, published by the Office of University Relations, and Bear Crossing, from the Alumni Association.

Please feel free to let us know how we’re doing; we welcome and appreciate feedback.
