Campus Life Experience

All full-time students will attend at least two on-campus organized activities, such as performances, talks, panels, workshops, etc., for each semester they are enrolled on campus (fall and spring only). Students may attend more or fewer events in a given semester as long as they attend the total number required during their career at UNC–Chapel Hill. Events that are required for a course the student is taking are still eligible to count toward the Campus Life Experience requirement. To be eligible, events must be sponsored by a UNC–Chapel Hill department, unit, or registered student organization. Events may include students on the program but may not be entirely composed of students. 

All approved events are posted to Heel Life
