More than 3,300 Carolina blue caps and gowns have been purchased for Commencement this weekend, 24,000 programs are being printed, and more than 200 azaleas will be on display.
A lot goes into getting ready for Commencement, but one thing is true: the most important number is 6,027. That’s how many graduates there are in the Class of 2013.
Congratulations, Tar Heels!
