Carolina Quotables

“In Chapel Hill among a friendly folk, this old university, the first state university to open its doors, stands on a hill set in the midst of beautiful forests under the skies that give their color and their charm to the life of youth gathered here . . . there is music in the air of the place.”

-- Frank Porter Graham, President of the University of North Carolina, 1931
