Carolina Teaching Fellows Reunion 2011

October 28-29, 2011
Friday and Saturday

Dear Teaching Fellow Alumni,

We are hosting our first ever Teaching Fellows Alumni Reunion during Carolina Homecoming October 28-29, 2011. We are making plans now for a special Teaching Fellows event on Friday evening, after which you may join in on all the exciting events planned for Homecoming through the UNC General Alumni Association.

Later this summer, you will receive information about how to register for reunion events and purchase football tickets in the Teaching Fellows block for the UNC vs. Wake Forest University Homecoming game.

We are extremely excited about this special weekend, and hope you can join us.  Please feel free to begin to contact your fellow classmates and begin making plans to return to Chapel Hill for a wonderful fall weekend. If you need an address for a classmate, go to the School of Education website and click on Alumni and Friends, then on the online alumni directory.

More than 1000 Teaching Fellows have completed their education at Carolina since 1992. We are proud of your accomplishments and hope you will return to campus to visit with classmates, current Teaching Fellows as well as faculty and staff.

We look forward to seeing you in Chapel Hill October 28-29. For more information about Homecoming and affinity reunions visit the UNC General Alumni Association website.
