Hi Bridge Society

A gift from the 1940 senior class, Hi Bridge is located between Gunter and Gray Hall. The bridge established the tradition that anyone who crossed the bridge, friend or stranger, were to greet each other with a cordial “Hi.” 

Our Homecoming Royalty program is now named after this campus landmark. The Senior students selected through our process represent UNC's diverse student population and serve as strong leaders within our community. Applications will be available Friday, 9/17 - Monday 9/27. APPLY NOW.
