Overview

Covering everything from the Old Well to the Speaker Ban and more, UNC A to Z is a concise, easy-to-read introduction to the nation's first public university, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Perfect for new students getting to know the campus or alumni who want to learn more about their alma mater, this richly illustrated reference contains more than 350 entries packed with fascinating facts, interesting stories, and little-known histories of the people, places, and events that have shaped the Carolina we know today.

With histories of campus buildings like Old East, gathering places like the Pit, and the many student traditions like the Cardboard Club, the Cake Race, and High Noon, UNC A to Z is the book every Tar Heel will want to keep close at hand.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Even if you think you're a true Tar Heel, open this book to any page and you'll learn something you didn't know, like the actual origin of the term "Tar Heel." (It was nice to finally have that cleared up.) Wonderfully written, UNC A to Z gives us the nuts and the bolts of Carolina without losing any of its magic. It's a beautiful achievement."—Lewis Black, comedian, author, and UNC alum



Logically organized and, frankly, brilliant. Deeply comprehensive for those who want a broader historical look at the university. I can envision alumni and those with a deep affinity for UNC reading it from start to finish."—Art Chansky, author of Game Changers and UNC alum
