Thanks Where Thanks Is Due

If you’ve had the chance to visit our office this spring, the image you see here will come as no surprise. Spring is here in all its glory.

All of us in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions are lucky to work in one of the most beautiful corners of one of the most beautiful campuses in the world.  We owe our good fortune not only to the visionaries who founded this great public university more than two centuries ago, but also to the people of North Carolina and to generations of alumni and friends, who have supported our students and faculty through thick and thin.

For the beauty that surrounds us every day, we’re also indebted to an incredibly dedicated grounds crew – Don Acrey, Ernest Richmond, Lar Da, and Pricha Srikhirisawan – and to their manager, Steve Gooch, who provided this photograph.

Thank you, gentlemen, for taking great care of the place that’s been entrusted to us. And thank you, Spring, for brightening our lives again.
