Help Us Welcome UNC Asheville Students

Welcome UNC Asheville Students To Campus

Back-to-school time is upon us, and new UNC Asheville students will be moving into their residence halls this Friday, August 19. We have many activities planned to make them feel at home on campus, but we also want them to feel at home in Asheville. Several local businesses and organizations will be participating in our social media campaign to welcome our newest Bulldogs to town, and we hope you will, too. It’s easy!

Post a welcome message to your Facebook, Twitter and/or Instagram accounts with the hashtags #AVLwelcome and #uncavl20 on Friday, August 19. If you’re a fan of selfies, wear your Bulldog blue and snap a pic of yourself to include with your post. You can also post during our Weeks of Welcome, the two weeks following the start of classes on Monday, August 22.

Follow us to see the campaign in action:

Thank you for helping us welcome our students as we kick off the upcoming semester!

UNC Asheville Bulldogs vs Pittsburgh… can we do this? YES!

UNC Asheville may have a tough road ahead in the NCAA. We are in the middle of March Madness and so excited about the win last night over Arkansas. Of course our community and much of North Carolina is behind them 100%+, but I was amused by all of these people hating on our team. I used to say “it’s just a game” but it has become a whole lot more serious to me lately.  I don’t like the comments that are coming across Twitter. I hope they give Pittsburgh a beating!!! LOL.
