Dear UNC Spouses and Partners Community,

Happy 2020!

It’s been 5 amazing years since the beginning of the group! The Spouses and Partners group is growing. Since 2015, 165 families have joined it!

Based on the diverse interests of its members, the Spouses and Partners Group offers different activities, such as the Social Get Together, Painting Group, English Group and Spanish Group. Please check the calendar for the time and location of all our meetings

It’s rewarding to see how our members represent different cultures, share their traditions and experiences, and enrich life at UNC! Our families come from Brazil, Chile, China, Colombia, Denmark, France, India, Indonesia, Israel, Italy, Japan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Mexico, the Netherlands, Pakistan, Russia, Spain and Turkey.

When we get together we laugh, exchange experiences, educate, help and learn from each other, explore Chapel Hill and Carrboro together, celebrate holidays,  cook, and simply embrace our differences by being united at UNC.

I am grateful to you all for your participation and enthusiasm. You make this group unique!

Stay tuned for future newsletters!
