“What is it that binds us to this place as to no other? It is
not the well or the bell or the stone walls. Or the crisp October
nights or the memory of dogwoods blooming. Our loyalty is not only
to William Richardson Davie, though we are proud of what he did 200
years ago today. Nor even to Dean Smith, though we are proud of what
he did last March. No, our love for this place is based on the fact
that it is, as it was meant to be, the University of the people.”
