The UNC-Chapel Hill Class of 2020 will go to Carolina in their minds this morning as the campus remains closed to non-essential business in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

Shortly after spring break, students and faculty nimbly adapted from in-person to remote instruction. Now, the students who would be turning their tassels on May 10 in Kenan Memorial Stadium will mark the day unlike any other class in Carolina’s history.

While these springtime celebrations will happen virtually, there’s no substitute for coming together with classmates to mark this milestone. Chancellor Kevin M. Guskiewicz has promised students they will not miss that pivotal part of their Carolina journey. Plans are in works to host the Class of 2020 back on campus for a postponed ceremony.
