#UNCA2020, tomorrow would have been your big day. We are STILL going to celebrate you. And we're looking forward to celebrating in person on Aug. 1 at Commencement. So, we're creating a digital yearbook titled "20 for 20," which will consist of student photos and a quote about either themselves or their experience at UNC Asheville; 20 alumni giving next year's incoming class words of wisdom; and families, friends, and faculty and staff members giving their 20 words of encouragement to the Class of 2020. We'll be sharing these stories on social media with the hashtag #UNCA2020. Oh, and look out for some surprises tomorrow too.

Frontline and Front-Page Work: UNC Asheville Alumna Elizabeth Conte Supports NCAA Student Athletes through COVID-19 Closures - Stories from UNC Asheville

“I think working at the NCAA has taught me a lot, but especially in this experience. I was not expecting to have this experience as part of my internship, with all the seasons closed and the championships closed, there was a lot of mourning for those events not happening, especially for the student-athletes, that got ripped away from them.” - UNC Asheville alumna Elizabeth Conte. “It was really hard for me and the staff at the NCAA to see that happen, although it was the best decision.”

When UNC Asheville alumna Elizabeth Conte found herself as one of only 30 applicants out of thousands selected for a prestigious NCAA postgraduate internship, she was thrilled; she certainly didn’t expect to find herself working from home, helping to support student-athletes through the canceled s...

The Spring 2020 Undergraduate Research Symposium Goes Online with Gusto. For most UNC Asheville students, undergraduate research culminates their classes and college career, but this spring, with COVID-19 taking classes online and scholars working remotely, the results have been a bit different. Not in the work itself, which goes on side-by-side synchronously or asynchronously, but in the presentations themselves, which for the first time in UNC Asheville history, are all shared online. #BulldogsWhereverWeAre

General information

At UNC Asheville, we’ve created an environment for exploring the world as well as more than 30 different majors. About 3,800 undergraduate students and about 330 full- and part-time faculty bring the campus alive with a genuine hunger to understand and contribute to the human experience. Amid the culturally rich setting of Asheville, North Carolina, in the Blue Ridge Mountains, it’s all designed to spark a lifelong quest to know more — a fire that will grow brighter in the future.
