One of my favorite things about campus is the historical district of central campus. So today I'm going to give you a brief history about UNC. The university was established in 1889 and we were or8iginally called the State Normal School and our mascot was the teacher. Wow talk about an intimidating mascot. "Ahhh loo out its the teachers". Luckily now were the bears. "Ahhhhh look out its the bears". Now that sounds scary. Anyways... The first building built on campus was Cranford Hall back in 1889 when the school first opened. Unfortunately after many years of wear and tear and then a fire they tore down the building in 1972. Today the cornerstone of Cranford hall still stands. They say that if you kiss your sweet heart at midnight in front of the cornerstone you will find true love.

Oh the freedom and responsibilities of college. Buying your own toilet paper, making shopping list, cleaning your own room, doing your own laundry, and balancing your time between you school life and social life. There are so many things that you do as an independent college student. One of those glorious things is registering for your classes. Here at UNC you we have complete control over what classes we take and what time we take them at. The only exception is when you need the class for your major or if its only offered at one time. But other than that you weld the sword of destiny when it comes to your class schedule. Next semester I have one morning class from 9:05 to 9:55 on Monday,Wednesday and Friday then for the rest of the day I'm done with classes. Then on Tuesday and Thursday I have three classes in a row and don't get out till 4:45. The great thing is that if your a morning personal you can choose to have your classes in the morning. If your normal then you can choose to have all your classes in the afternoon and sleep in. You can have all your classes on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and take Tuesday and Thursday off. It's amazing how empowering it is to be in charge of your own scheduling destiny. We sign up for fall semester in April and the spring semester in November. I hope all of you out there have a merry scheduling and a happy end of the school year.
