the lunch served after the ceremony.

As their contribution to University
Day, the senior class arranged to have
UNC's original charter brought to
Wilson Library from the State
Capitol in Raleigh for the day. It was
the first time the charter has ever been
brought to the campus and displayed,
said Neil Fulghum, the keeper of the
North Caroliniana gallery. Fulghum
was in charge of organizing the
special charter display, which also
included the original bronze corner
stone and the original pen and ink
sketch of Old East.
"In a way, bringing home the
charter was a gift to the University,"
said Steve Tepper, senior class
president. "We were proud to be able
to do it and proud of the response
the charter got."
Tepper said he was pleased with
the reaction to the exhibit, and that
most of the day there was a line about
15 minutes long to see the charter.
I The senior class also held two
receptions Wednesday afternoon in
honor of Hardin. The first, held in
Wilson Library, was for the Board
of Trustees, the Living Legends

old), the Dialectic Society and dis

held in the Pit for students and other

oldest Bible in North Carolina.
Wednesday was the first time it had
been taken outside in 173 years.
Those who attended said they were
impressed with the University Day
ceremony and the related events.
"It was really handled well. It was
a very appropriate tribute and recog
nition to the University's history,"
said Tom Williams, a freshman
history major from Chapel Hill.
"The whole event was extremely
well done in the tradition of this
University," said Francis DiGiano,
professor of environmental sciences
and engineering. "I was inspired by
Chancellor Hardin's message. He
came across as vivacious and enthu
siastic and he spoke for change.
