the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill: Tar Heels

Baby blue,sky blue, powder blue, all the same color and to many, a list of evil misleading misnomers. It is, always has been, and always will be Carolina blue.bell tower

The school first opened its doors in 1789, which is a long time ago, but I’m pretty sure the sky was already blue back then.

The school has an enrollment of 29 thousand students, who were all babies before they were Tar Heels.

I’m not sure why powder blue is called powder blue, so I will ignore that one for now.bookstore

No matter how many others have claim to the color and no matter how sound your argument, you will not win if your position is anything other than “that” color is and always will be, Carolina blue.

It is just this sort of illogic, this kind of driven devotion, that drives everyone from any other school insane while simultaneously driving its school to be ranked the #5 public school in the country, #30 overall.quad

It is also the sort of insanity that has produced, or perhaps lured, the two most dominant athletes to ever play their respective sports, Lawrence Taylor and Michael Jordan.

This sporting prowess has placed the school in a position where young children, like myself some time ago, who have never been within 1,000 miles of Chapel Hill, never even heard of the idea of a liberal arts college, still know very well what and who the Tar Heels are.student center

But even with all these championships to win, and all these top notch classes to attend, the students still find time to make an attempt at setting a world record for most people spooning.

Aaaaaah college.
