Carolina Family Weekend is full of tradition and excitement and we are seeking to maintain these in new and safe ways. It is a wonderful time for families to reconnect with their student(s), meet other Carolina families, and connect with faculty and staff. There are exciting programs and events to explore and enjoy all within the vibrant, Carolina community in regulation with safety and distancing guidelines. 

Things to Consider:

  • Yes, we plan to have in-person events as CDC, North Carolina, and University guidelines permit.
  • And, for folks preferring to participate from afar, we will plan some hybrid and virtual content as well.
  • Football tickets will be on a first-come, first-served basis and will also abide by any safety guidelines at that time.
