In April, the campus community gathered in the Campus Commons atrium to celebrate the investiture of UNC’s 13th president, Andy Feinstein, and the successful conclusion of the Campaign for UNC.

The 114,000-square-foot building is in the process of being LEED-certified (recognition for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) and includes features like the social stairs (a focal point of the south entrance) which are made of wood reclaimed from railway cars. The staircase was created with the intent of being a multi-use space offering stairs, seating and a stage. Throughout the year, the stage will host open mic nights, poetry slams and more.
