This year, UNCG celebrates 130 years!

Founders Day, typically recognized on the anniversary of the first day of classes in 1892, celebrates and commemorates UNC Greensboro’s history. 

This year, due to Yom Kippur, Founders Day will be celebrated on campus Thursday, October 6th.

Start the day off right with free doughnuts, T-shirts, and giveaways at five locations throughout campus from 9:30-11 a.m.

  • Moran Commons
  • Between Foust and Nursing & Instructional Building 
  • Between Bryan School and School of Education
  • McIver Statue at Jackson Library
  • CVPA (Peabody Park) Bridge

Then, party like a Founder on Kaplan Commons (EUC Lawn) from 1:30-3 p.m. 

The lawn party will feature music, yard games, UNCG branded giveaways, T-shirts, photo/video booths, popcorn, and birthday cake!
