The University of North Carolina
system has adopted the original seal
of the Chapel Hill campus first used
in 1791 as the official seal of the
Board of Governors and the UNC
A resolution to the Board of
Governor's meeting June 13 intro
duced by B. Irwin Boyle, chairman
of the Committee of University
Governance, asked that the seal be
changed from the one associated with
the Chapel Hill campus to one that
represented all 16 campuses. The
board unanimously approved the
resolution to adopt the official seal
originally adopted in 1791, Apollo's
head surrounded by 16 rays of rising
sun surrounded by concentric circles
and between the circles, the words
in Latin: "Seal of the University of
North Carolina,"' and 1789, the date
of the founding of the Uiversity.
The seal is the same as the one
that appeared on official documents
and diplomas of the University for
100 years after 1791. It is technically
the original seal of the UNC Board
of Trustees, which then served the
function of the Board of Governors,
since there was only one campus at
that time, said John P. Kennedy Jr.,
secretary of the University.
The seal that is now being used
will still be used to denote the Chapel
Hill campus and will appear on
souvenirs and other items associated
with UNC. The new seal has been
used on the University Award, the
system's highest award since 1979,
and will appear statewide on official
documents. Some universities in the
system already have a seal for their
individual campuses and UNC's seal
will now be used in the same way,
"The original seal just fell into
disuse, and the seal that now repres
ents UNC and the entire system just
evolved into being our seal," he said.
"Nobody knows why this one
stopped being used. When other
schools came into the system, the new
seal was somehow adopted as the
UNC seal as well as the system seal.
"It was first a simple seal,"then the
motto was added and then the
torches that sometimes appear on
both sides of the seal and sometimes
The seal that was adopted by the
board, effective July 1 , shows the face
of Apollo, god of radiance and light,
of music and poetry, who represented
balance of character, the ideally
perfect human being.
The fact that the seal contains 16
rays of sun behind the head of Apollo
in 1791 is "prophetic" because it now
respresents all 16 campuses in the
system, Kennedy said. The use of the
original seal is very appropriate for
the Chapel Hill campus because it
was the first state University to open,

From staff reports
The Student Health Service, well

medicine staff of nine doctors and
three nurse practitioners to take care
of most health needs; -the sports
medicine clinic, which provides
physical therapy and treatment for
many injuries; the mental health staff
to help students discuss stress,
loneliness and other problems
through crisis intervention, individ
ual therapy and stress management;
and women's health, staffed by a
gynecologist and two nurse praction
ers to provide pregnancy tests and
routine care. Student Health also
includes the cold care center, a do-it-yourself
service, which allows
students to save time by determining
if their illnesses require the care of
a doctor; the allergy clinic, which
administers vaccines; and the phar
macy, which fills prescriptions writ
ten by' SHS doctors and sells over-
. Services not covered by the student
health fee will be directly billed to
students through the cashier's office

at all times, including weekends, most
holidays and semester breaks. Major
injuries or illnesses will be referred
to the N.C. Memorial Hospital.
