From President Obama's visit to final exams to Neil DeGrasse Tyson, there's been a lot of activity at Carolina lately.
Amidst all the hustle and bustle, it's been tough to find a few moments of calm. More than once, I've found myself feeling like this:
|"AHH! APRIL! AHH!"|
a team that comes to campus during exam week to provide stress relief for students, faculty, and staff. Whiskey and her fellow therapy dogs work with patients at the NC Children's Hospital, assisted living homes, and other area medical centers to provide calming care to aid in the healing process. Whiskey, Mazie, and Teddy spent last Thursday in the Park Library of the J-School, ready and eager to give tail wags and puppy kisses in return for belly rubs and treats - and, of course, lots of pictures. Silvia, Whiskey's mom/handler, told us that in the beginning, Whiskey was a jumper - very eager, very smart, but not so refined. Now, Whiskey knows that the day after she gets her bath, it's time to go to work. When the bandanas come out, it's game on.
|Whiskey has some choices to make, too.|
|Sometimes advice can be heavy-handed.|
After learning about the amazing things you've already accomplished from reading your applications, we are so excited about the possibility of you joining our community and making an impact here at Carolina. But our hopes and dreams are secondary to yours: in the end, this is YOUR decision.
|Whiskey's found her happy place - now it's your turn to find yours.|
If you have any questions or concerns about enrolling at Carolina, please continue to reach out to us and let us know - we're here by phone (919.966.3621) and email (firstname.lastname@example.org). We hope to see you on campus in the fall!
