Summer Contest: What are you excited about?

IMG_1120

Move-in, for general students, begins in just over a month. Some will have already moved in and started by the beginning of August, too.  There’s a lot to look forward to: moving into a residence hall, seeing your friends again, meeting new people, Franklin street, the old well, football games, even classes (maybe not classes). Carolina offers breathtaking views, unforgettable experiences, and one of the best communities in the country. What are you most excited about?

Last but not least, we’re going to the most interesting first-year high-rise residence hall in Ehringhaus. While hidden from the road, this hall has a lot of character. It’s a 6 floor hall with style and one of the best views at Carolina. More than 600 residents call this place home, and I have stories of why it’s an exciting place to live.

Hinton James houses the most students of any building on campus.

The View from: Craige

Welcome to the Reslife blog, summer 2015 edition. If you’re an incoming first-year, you’ve recently received your housing assignment for the 2015-16 school year. While there is ample information about the residence halls on the official housing website, it doesn’t provide context and personality to the place you’ll be calling home next year! This series of posts will give a closer look, from a former resident’s perspective – there’s much more than meets the eye in every residence hall.
