The College of Performing and Visual Arts is home to a dedicated and talented faculty and staff of more than 90 professionals devoted to helping students prepare for careers in the arts. Our current population includes nearly 1300 arts students.
The UNC Arts experience combines the best of the time-honored academy traditions and the most current and forward-thinking ideas in the arts with the liberal arts education of a major university.
We maintain an annual calendar of more than 300 events in a wide variety of genres. These activities are open to the public and members of surrounding communities are invited to share in the excellent offerings of music, theatre, dance, and visual arts.
Ah! Well I Remember! The UNC Alma Mater, "Ah! Well I Remember" is more than just a piece of music to the 200 members of the "Pride of the Rockies" Marching Band. As the band plays this piece before each home football event, the members of the "Pride of the Rockies," past and present, are brought together to remember the friendships and relationships forged each year on the belief that "time shall never sever friends of Purple and Gold."
