50 years of UNC Crew: 2020 Alumni Reunion and Men’s Crew Boathouse Project

50 years of UNC Crew: 2020 Alumni Reunion and Men’s Crew Boathouse Project

Founded in 1969, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s Men’s Crew Club has embodied the motto of Tradition, Teamwork, Excellence. As a member of UNC Sport Clubs and Campus Recreation, the team competes against both Varsity and Club programs across the nation. The Club and the University will honor its history and alumni with a 50th Anniversary Reunion and Boathouse Groundbreaking Ceremony in 2020.

The current Michael Nicholls Boathouse on University Lake has provided the team a training home for decades. To continue competing at a high level for current and future rowers, the program needs a new home to grow and flourish for years to come. UNC Men’s Crew and Campus Recreation hope to embark on a year long journey to honor and recognize those individuals and teams that have represented UNC on the water for five decades and to raise the necessary funds to support a new facility.

You have the opportunity to directly impact the future of UNC Men’s Crew. Your gift will help Carolina serve its students and provide them with a facility they need to succeed on University Lake and across the nation. Please consider a gift to the Boathouse Project.

To give to the Boathouse project please visit their UNC giving website.
