We have many resources available to you, either remotely or in person, and we hope you will take advantage of the many services we offer when you need them.

Involvement on campus is key to enhancing your time at UNC, as it introduces you to campus life and UNC’s culture, spirit, and traditions.

We are here to help you realize you are a valuable part of the Bear community (Office of Student Engagement).
