Meet Us on the Road this Fall

School is starting again and so is our busiest travel season. Throughout September and October, our recruiters will be hitting the road and bringing Carolina to schools, college fairs, and other events across the country and around the world.

Where are we going? We’re glad you asked!

In North Carolina, you’ll find us at every CACRAO event – our admissions reps (David, Olivia, Brandon, and our newest team member, Joe) will be crisscrossing the state to talk Tar Heel with students from Murphy to Manteo. We’ll be traveling with lots of other colleges and universities, so these events are great opportunities to connect with plenty of schools. Elsewhere in NC, we’ll be attending as many parent nights and school programs as we can, along with additional visits to high schools to connect with students.

For those outside of North Carolina, we’re coming to see you, too! We’ll be hitting up the Atlanta metro; Dallas-Fort Worth; Columbus, OH; Boston; NYC, Long Island, and a few counties north of the city; Charleston, SC; Tampa, Miami, and Ft. Lauderdale; Orange County, CA; the DC metro; Chicagoland; and the Virginia Tidewater.

Speaking of out-of-state travel, we’re also teaming up with Emory, Notre Dame, and UVA to visit a total of 19 cities in 15 different states in September – details here!

We’re even doing a bit of overseas travel to find the best and brightest students. Melody and Jen will be in Toronto for the NACAC college fair; Jared will be heading to London and Paris; Patty is heading to Central and South America; Melissa will be in Turkey; and Andrea will be in Bangkok, Ho Chi Min City, and Manila. 

We also have amazing alumni ambassadors who are covering college fairs in even more places around the country and occasionally overseas, too.


We are pumped to meet you in your towns, but we also want you to come to ours if you can – it’s a great way to learn more and get a feel for what it’s like to be a Carolina student. Whether we see you on the road or here on campus, WE ARE EXCITED. Travel season is super fun for us, because we get to talk about opportunities and possibilities – and it builds anticipation for reading season when we get to learn even more about the amazing things you’re doing.

 See you soon!
