We Take Pride in Being UNC Bears

In fact, you won’t find a bigger, bolder group of graduates than the network of UNC alumni.

We may live in different cities, be graduates of different class years, and pursue different careers, but together we are UNC's Bear Network and we believe in the power of giving back.

Once a Bear, Always a Bear

Bears First Program Gives All Students a Chance to Succeed  

Meeting students where they are is important for ensuring they feel supported and welcomed on campus. For many students entering university with a 3.0 or below grade point average (GPA), they have fewer opportunities for financial support for reasons that are frequently out of their control. That is why the Alumni Association Board directed the Sharon Gander Alumni Scholarship to support Bears First students, a program to support students entering college with below a 3.0 GPA, after an alumna left part of her estate to UNC.

Women’s Walk Gives a Venue for Student-Athletes to Support Their Fans

Women’s Walk is a fun, family-friendly event where your interactions with student-athletes are just as memorable as the scholarship funds that you help raise. While you walk with friends and family, UNC’s Division I student-athletes cheer you on, just as you do at all their games. For graduate student and volleyball setter, Syd Cole, ’23, the community support at her games is one of her favorite parts of being on the team. Returning the support at this year’s 16th Annual Women’s Walk will be another memorable bonding experience for her and her teammates, and a powerful showing of support for all women’s athletics programs.
