I know, two posts in one day, WHAT? I thought I had to acknowledge that today is the 223rd anniversary of the laying of the cornerstone of Old East here at UNC. If y'all are new to the blog, I graduated from the University of North Carolina and I actually work here now. It's crazy to think that over eight years ago I decided to attend UNC and little did I know that this place would have such an impact on my life.

Any Carolina student and graduate knows the magic of Chapel Hill and being a Tar Heel. It's not just about having an amazing athletic program but all of the opportunities Carolina brings to expand your knowledge, push your beliefs and mold you into critical thinkers. Our liberal arts curriculum when first explained seemed like general education requirements would take forever, but instead they uncovered passions and reminded me that I do not have to excel in every subject but I have to strive for understanding all views.

Thank you for all of the founders who were instrumental in creating a place of light and liberty, a place where I struggled but was celebrated, and who made me fall in love with North Carolina and a certain shade of blue.
