Carolina Quotables

“Many have asked, ‘Why is the University of North Carolina outstanding? Why is it unique?’ . . . I would suggest that the University is outstanding because it is a leader. It has exercised leadership in the unceasing fight for higher standards of education throughout North Carolina, and its influence has been felt in every corner of the state.”

-- Luther Hodges, Governor of North Carolina, 1960
