Enjoy free lunch at Campus Kickoff August 13

This year, UNCG is rolling out a new mobile app (you can already download it from the Apple and Google app stores). It is going to help transform the way we connect, communicate, and stay informed. Download the app and show it to us at the Fountain View dining hall during lunch, and you’ll be entered to win prizes like gift cards to the UNCG Bookstore, Spartan Dining, or Starbucks. Winners will be announced using the convenient Notifications capability in the new UNCG Mobile App.

Plus, your downloads will make a difference! For every download starting today and ending at midnight on August 13, UNCG will donate one item of food (to be determined based on need) to the Spartan Open Pantry, which helps provide for our students when they are in need.  A 2017 local survey revealed that in the previous 12 months, 34.9 percent of UNCG students had skipped a meal because they didn’t have enough money to buy food. No student should go hungry.  No student should have to choose between books and essentials. Download the app today, and support our Culture of Care.

At the kickoff you’ll have a chance to meet our four new deans, an opportunity to get an exclusive deal from the UNCG Bookstore, the ability to learn more about free Run Hide Fight training from the UNCG Police Department, and a few other surprises.

Lunch starts at 11 a.m. Get the app and join the team as we prepare for the 2019-2020 academic year.
