Carolina’s most famous landmark was the original water source for the University. Tradition says a drink from the Old Well on the first day of class brings good luck and a perfect GPA. (We also recommend studying.)
Welcome to Carolina’s main academic quad, named after alumnus and U.S. President James K. Polk. These buildings house departments and schools from Chemistry to Journalism. Carolina students can choose from more than 70 majors.
In this brick courtyard, campus thrives – you might see students campaigning for Student Body President, dance performances, or a charity lunch to help combat poverty. They say that in a single day, every student at Carolina will pass through the Pit.
