Open House is the Friday of UNC Family Weekend (September 23rd – September 25th).

Family Weekend is full of tradition and excitement and is a wonderful time for parents and families to reconnect with their student, meet other Carolina families, and connect with faculty and staff. There are exciting programs and events to explore and enjoy the vibrant Carolina community. Traditional events include the Carolina Parents Association meeting, Carolina Family BBQ, Carolina Legacy Pinning Ceremony, arts performances, cultural events and Tar Heel athletic events.

As part of UNC Family Weekend, the School’s Office of Student Affairs welcomes undergraduate students and their families to meet with faculty, staff and students from our four undergraduate majors: Biostatistics, Environmental Health Science, Health Policy and Management and Nutrition.
Join us for tours of the classrooms and labs, informal Q&A sessions and refreshments. Registration is not required. Interested in finding out more about Gillings and our programs? Request more information about a program or degree.
