“The Pit” in Your City

Check out the new home of our local club and our General Alumni Association.  We hope this fresh new look will make it even more exciting to connect with local Tar Heels . We like to think of this site just like the Pit on Campus (without the protesters and flyers!).  Your one stop shop to find out all that’s happening with Tar Heels near you!

We’re devoted to bringing some Carolina Blue to the sea of orange we have here in Knoxville! Fall 2016 saw the reestablishment of the Knoxville Carolina Club! The GAA and the Knoxville Carolina Club is meant to connect local Tar Heels with each other and back to the University.

So far we’ve had a local meet & greet, countless game viewings, a road trip to watch UTK take on UNC in Chapel Hill, and a senior send-off for soon-to-be Knox Heels. And our General Alumni Association provides support every step of the way!


If you would like to help generate ideas and make meaningful connections among local Tar Heels, please contact me at gamo@alumni.unc.edu. Join our Knoxville Carolina Club Facebook group!

I look forward to hearing from you all, and as always, go Heels!
