Tar Heel Beginnings & Week of Welcome

Welcome Home! 

To make sure you get off to a successful start we’ve created information about all the many programs, services, and academic resources on campus to help make the transition to college easier. We call it Tar Heel Beginnings, and it will be an essential navigational tool for your journey.

The first week of Tar Heel Beginnings is called Week of Welcome (WOW) and is packed with programs, events, and services. Continue the excitement of the Week of Welcome throughout the fall semester with Tar Heel Beginnings programs, planned by students, for students.

Check out our 2017 Tar Heel Beginnings Schedule on the right side of this page or on Guidebook. Keep a look-out for emails from your Orientation Leader and Resident Advisor for Tar Heel Beginnings events happening across campus!

New students will receive a copy of the Tar Heel Beginnings Planner upon moving into their fall residence hall or Granville Towers. New transfer students living off-campus, will receive their planner at Week of Welcome events or may contact newstudents@unc.edu for a copy.
