April 2009 Special Edition: Champions Again!

Tar Heels take the title

The Tar Heels are No. 1 - again! Carolina, led by Coach Roy Williams along with senior starters Tyler Hansbrough and Danny Green, claimed its second national basketball championship since 2005 on Monday night in Detroit. The Tar Heel faithful celebrated on Franklin Street, and they'll gather again today when the team returns to a jubilant Smith Center.


We celebrate all our champions - Whether they can dunk or not

Carolina spotlights our students' remarkable academic achievements in "We celebrate all our champions - Whether they can dunk or not," an ad debuting last year with Nobel Prize winner Oliver Smithies. This year we feature five winners of distinguished scholarships - the Rhodes, Churchill, Goldwater, Luce and Truman. Carolina is among the most successful universities in producing students who have what it takes to earn these prestigious awards. See the ad here.
     Carolina, what are you going to do next?

Woody Durham, the voice of the Tar Heels, lends a hand in a light-hearted video look at Carolina's future inspired by the familiar ad tagline that's a post-script to Super Bowl broadcasts. See the video, go to UNC's YouTube Channel. If you haven't seen Coach Williams' appearance in a new "Guitar Hero" television ad, check it out. Joining him are Mike Krzyzewski, Rick Pitino and Bobby Knight.

Go Heels!
