“When my husband got accepted to UNC Kenan-Flagler, we didn’t know a thing about North Carolina or Chapel Hill. We decided to come from Israel for Experience Weekend and to check out the area. After spending 3 days at UNC, we understood that this was our place. We came in July, so I had enough time to explore the area and instantly fell in love with it. I found out that there is everything I need around me, and the amazing thing was that people were so kind and very helpful with what we needed. Next year my mission as a vice president and VP international affairs is to help with everything, answer all questions and pass all the knowledge I’ve gained this year in order to make others feel like home.

“I was so proud of my boyfriend, Ben, when he was accepted to UNC Kenan-Flagler. I knew coming in that our world was about to change drastically, so I was really happy to find out about Kenan Connection. I found friends that I can rely on and a group of amazing people who are fun to hang out with. As Head of Communication, I am the go-to person for the website, email newsletter, and Twitter and Facebook accounts. If you have any questions about communication, please send me an email. I’d love to chat!”

“I was so excited to move to Chapel Hill for my student, Alex, to start the MBA program. He did ASW so we moved here in July. I have loved getting to know the area, meeting all the new people and attending all of the events put on by the school and by Kenan Connection. The beginning of the program was time intensive, so I was thrilled to have other partners to spend time with, especially while I was on the job hunt and had nothing but free time! I am excited to welcome a new year of students and partners and hope that we can be a resource for the incoming group!”
