Alumni Help Launch the Class of 2013
Dozens of Carolina Clubs around North Carolina and across the country hosted
picnics, receptions and other late-summer meet-and-greet events to give Carolina students a proper send-off for the new school year. The parties are a way to welcome
new students into the Tar Heel family before they even get to campus.

The party-goers at the Lake Norman Carolina
Club weren’t forced to walk the plank — they
dove right in on their own. Maybe it was symbolic of students’ enthusiasm for another
school year at Carolina, or maybe it was just
the best way to cool off in the late-summer
heat. Either way, the event, shown on this
page, was like many other send-offs, featuring food, drink and mostly fun.
