The Bear Network in Action
Thank you to the growing number of UNC Bears who raised their hands to serve as alumni career advisors. Our volunteers help advise students and recent graduates in career planning and transitions.
The calculated time alumni career advisors volunteered to consult students, both on campus and online, from April 2014 to the present. Their effort supported more than 750 students in the last four years!

Bears love to hire Bears. 25% of the companies recruiting on campus during the Spring 2018 job and internship fair were represented by UNC alumni.
Bears Go Big
UNC Bears go out into the world to do BIG and significant work. Meet Christina Randle, who earned her UNC bachelor’s degree in Elementary and Secondary Teaching in 2003 and was named Colorado Teacher of the Year in 2018.
Teaching is so much more than just delivering content to the kids.
