Class of 2020 Reunion Weekend

March 5, 2021
Categories: |

Members of the Class of 2020 recently received a “save the date” email from Chancellor Kevin Guskiewicz for a special class of 2020 reunion and commencement weekend October 9-10. Based on last year’s class survey and feedback from the commencement planning committee: the majority of survey respondents didn’t want a 2020 commencement experience to be packaged with the class of 2021 commencement. With state and national COVID-19 trends continuing to improve, offering a much brighter forecast for fall, the university believes it can provide a special and unprecedented weekend for more of the 2020 graduates and their families in October.

The weekend will be an unprecedented reunion and commencement weekend just for May, August and December 2020 graduates. Hosting this event in the fall, assuming current gathering restrictions are lifted, will allow the university to offer exclusive opportunities for your class which include: 

  • Special recognition throughout the Carolina Football game (versus Florida State) – this game will be dedicated to your class; 
  • Carolina Football watch party experience (limited number of game tickets will be made available); 
  • Traditional Bell Tower Climb; 
  • Special “Taste of Chapel Hill” food truck dine-around; 
  • UNC General Alumni Association’s traditional Champagne Toast; 
  • And, on Sunday, Oct. 10, Carolina will welcome our Class of 2020 into Kenan Stadium for a tassel-turning ceremony like no-other.  

This celebration weekend will be memorable and fitting of your special status  and the sacrifices you made during your senior year…and beyond.  Visit the class of 2020 website to stay up-to-date with the lastest information about the weekend.
