Carolina on My Mind

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Chapel Hill chapter.

This summer Chapel Hill has been filled with tourists, C-Toppers and those students who braved summer school.  As Franklin Street and the Student Store slowly fill with students buying books and back-to-school supplies, the Carolina blue spirit seems to be taking back the campus.  Say goodbye to the lazy summer days and no lines in the bookstores, and say hello to days dedicated to the Undergraduate Library and fun-filled nights on a crowded Franklin Street.
