Carolina Athletics

The Rams Club members provide scholarship and athletics opportunities to student-athletes across all 28 men’s and women’s teams. Across all academic areas, from the liberal arts to professional schools and beyond, Carolina sets a remarkably high standard of excellence. We must continue to set this same standard in athletics. As we face budget cuts and the cost of tuition continues to rise, Rams Club members are committed to making sure that our programs, facilities and standards remain second to none. But we can’t do this without your support. Funding our four priority areas will ensure that our student-athletes continue to have the academic resources and opportunities to achieve their greatest potential.
