As a new UNC Bear, you are now invited to attend New Student Days. New Student Days are designed to help first-year and transfer students transition both academically and socially to life at UNC. You will learn about various campus resources, gain an understanding of UNC’s academic expectations, and participate in social events including your very first UNC basketball game and a movie night on campus. During New Student Days, you are sure to have a great time meeting fellow Bears and getting prepared for the start of classes.
