The Class of 2020’s First Days at the G

This week, nearly 3,000 students will earn their UNC Greensboro degrees and officially become alumni. Just a few short years ago, they were bright-eyed Spartans learning to navigate life at the G.

The Class of 2020 has accomplished and experienced so much over the years – class projects and presentations, internships, study abroad, Southern Conference championships … the list goes on. 

For many Spartans, some of the best moments take place during those first few months on campus – move-in day, New Student Convocation (now called NAV1GATE), Rawkin’ Welcome Week, and Homecoming. These traditions set the tone for the rest of a student’s UNCG experience, and it’s often during these weeks when lifelong friendships are formed. 

To help celebrate the Class of 2020, we decided to dig back into the archives, back to fall 2016, when many of these students first stepped foot on campus.
