Niner Nation commemorated UNC Charlotte’s 75th anniversary on Thursday, Sept. 23 with a series of activities including a drop-in celebration, a community service event and a virtual conversation with Chancellor Sharon L. Gaber.
“Together, Niner Nation has built a remarkable university,” said Chancellor Sharon L. Gaber. “All of our accomplishments have been made possible by the extraordinary students, exceptional faculty and staff, dedicated alumni, generous friends and strong leaders who helped move us forward – starting with Miss Bonnie.”
Students, faculty and staff had an opportunity to sign the anniversary cake, designed by students and faculty in the College of Art + Architecture and constructed by the 3D Fabrications Lab, during the 75th Drop-in celebration held at the Popp Martin Student Union. The cake design speaks to the combination of freedom and rigor, study and recreation and research and innovation that brings us all together on campus.
