Launched in 2003, the Public Service Scholars program provides a framework for undergraduate students who want to maintain and strengthen their commitment to serving communities throughout North Carolina, the nation and the world. The program encourages students to learn about and practice public service and engagement beyond the scope of traditional volunteerism, including organizational service, policy and advocacy work, fundraising and philanthropy. We’ll hear how some students are using this program to extend Carolina’s reach.

|10:45 a.m.||A Carolina Covenant report card
The Carolina Covenant, which promises eligible low-income students a debt-free education, has been embraced by the campus and replicated by universities across the nation. Since the program’s inception in 2004, the University has measured the success of the program and of each scholar from admission to Carolina through graduation and beyond. We’ll get a look at the Covenant’s report card and the grades we’re achieving.

|1:45 p.m.||A new look for Venable and a new day for science
A campus landmark returns with a new face, as the east part of the new physical sciences building will retain a name familiar to generations of UNC alumni, Venable Hall. The west part of the building is named after Kenan Professor of Chemistry Royce W. Murray. Venable and Murray halls will be dedicated on University Day, October 12. We’ll hear how the state-of-the-art facilities in these and other new Science Complex buildings are enhancing the sciences at Carolina. (Note: The new building is also the site of Saturday’s pre-game event.)

|2:15 p.m.||Social media and why we can’t ignore it
There’s no doubt that social media have changed the face of how we communicate. Younger generations who’ve given little attention to traditional forms of media have caused Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and other social media sites to permeate the general population. Fred Stutzman will guide us through this new media maze, and Beth Braxton will show us how Carolina uses social media in its development efforts.
