The Gillings 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 Sciences and Engineering, Health Policy and Management and Nutrition. Join us for tours of the classrooms and labs, informal question and answer sessions and refreshments. This event is held on the eve of the Carolina Family Weekend. Carolina Family Weekend is full of tradition and excitement and is a wonderful time for families to reconnect with their students, meet other Carolina families, and connect with welcoming staff and faculty.

The 2018 Undergraduate Open House has passed. Please contact the Office of Student Affairs to schedule a visit.
