Special Events

We hope you'll join us to learn more about Carolina! We welcome all students who are applying to Carolina to join us for these virtual events.

Student Chats

We invite first-year and transfer students to join us for online chats with current Carolina students. Ask questions and get an inside look at what it’s like to be a Tar Heel. Chat topics include:

  • Create my community: Making connections and friends on campus
  • Navigating campus life as a student of color
  • Academic life beyond the classroom: Discover study abroad, research, and service learning opportunities
  • Which major is “right” for me?
  • Preparing for college life: manage your time, find helpful resources, and stay healthy
