The University of North Carolina

On October 12, 1793 the first cornerstone was layed on the building that is now known as Old East for the nations first public university. Soon afterwards lots were auctioned and the town of Chapel Hill was created. Since then UNC has always been one of the most important centers of learning in the country and has attracted a diverse and ever-growing student body. Col. William R. Davie, a Revolutionay War hero, worked tirelessly to create UNC and received the first honorary degree. The University is one of the most interesting and enjoyable places to visit in the state because of it's historical buildings, beautiful gardens and it's trees, some said to be two centuries old. When I wander around I can't help but feel I am in the modern equivalent of Ancient Athens and the abundance of columns and neo-classic architecture adds to that feeling. This is my tribute to the school that has made my life richer without ever having attended a class.
