Meet the Suitemates

During their first year of college, their unexpected friendship has made the good times better and the challenging times easier to overcome.

Derion, Philippe, James, Neil, and Jacob met online a few weeks before coming to Carolina. A year later, they’ve helped each other conquer a new town, first classes, final exams, and — most intense of all — rolly chair races.

They meet up for dinners that turn into study sessions. They race to eat the buffalo chicken dip made by Mom with love, and they know that if they need to talk at 1 a.m., they’ll find a suitemate ready to listen over a video game and pizza rolls.

If I described our suite in one word? I’d say family. Having this group of friends — they’re solid. They’re always there. I just know that I can go to them.
