Sept. 23, 2021: Happy 75th anniversary to UNC Charlotte — and Niners everywhere!
It’s been 75 years since Niner Nation was born. At the time, UNC Charlotte was just about 270 students at an evening college center. Today, it’s a research university of more than 30-thousand students.
It has been a center of innovation, growth, and resilience here in Charlotte. It’s something to be proud of. But it’s also a celebration that has to be tweaked a bit. We can’t forget – we’re still in a pandemic. So today, a drop-in celebration was held. And an important moment for UNC Charlotte’s Chancellor was put on hold.
