“It’s almost a way of life. It’s a culture. It’s part of you.”

“The Carolina Way”: words we understand so well, they often don’t require defining. These words, first coined by beloved Coach Dean Smith, reflect the spirit of this University—excellence with integrity and heart. These words influence each of us—students, alumni, faculty and friends—and more than anything else bind us to this place and to each other.
In this latest video we hear what “The Carolina Way” means to some of our fellow Tar Heels, including Coach Roy Williams and Chancellor Holden Thorp.
And we want to hear from you!
If you had to define “The Carolina Way” in your own words, what would they be? Let us know what “The Carolina Way” means to you by tweeting (use the hashtag #CarolinaWay), writing on our Facebook wall or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Gifts from Carolina alumni, students and friends provide critical support and help ensure that the Carolina Way continues to inspire and change lives for generations to come. We hope you’ll join us by making a gift today.
