Saturday marks the 209th birthday of the University
with an annual celebration that reminds students and
alumni of UNC’s humble beginnings.
University Day, first cele
brated in 1877, combines speak
ers and activities to invoke a
spirit of appreciation and com
memoration. The day’s festivi
ties center on Saturday’s cere-
mony, set for 9:30 a.m. in Hill Hall auditorium.
Although most of the events are planned for Saturday,
the celebration really starts a day earlier.
Anew addition to the School of Pharmacy will be

Although $l.B billion is the goal expected to be
announced at 12:30 p.m. in McCorkle Place,
Kupec and Fulton said they believe the campaign
definitely will exceed that goal.
“We expect to raise $2 billion, but it is more
realistic at this time to set it at about a billion
eight,” Fulton said earlier in the week.
Kupec said private funds could be a key factor
in positioning UNC as the leading public univer
sity. The eight-year campaign will end July 1,2007.

In 1901, Louis Round Wilson launched one
of the South’s first library science programs at
his alma mater.
Wilson eventually became a professor at
UNC and served as director of the Division of
Extension from 1912-21.
He helped obtain $5 million dollars in pri
vate donations to expand the overcrowded
University in 1920.
From 1915-32, Wilson also served on the Faculty Advisory
Committee and participated in planning the Carnegie Library

“We are very fortunate at this university to have
incredible support from the state, but in tough
times there are a lot of strains,” Kupec said. “We
know we’ve got to step it up.... The thing that can
drive us to excellence is private money.”
Since the campaign began it has averaged $22.3
million of committed funds each month. If the cam
paign averages only S2O million a month for its
remainder, $1.99 billion will be raised by July 1,2007.
The multiyear campaign began July 1, 1999,
with an initial goal of at least $1.5 billion. Officials
were originally going to announce the final goal
last October, but after the events of Sept. 11, they

In 1932, Wilson left UNC for the University of Chicago, where

“No university has ever failed to
reach its goal - I think that says it all.”
If anything, Carter said, “mega-fund

their goals lower so they can boast
