What a time to be a Tar Heel! The Carolina Men’s Basketball team will be returning to the NCAA National Championship to play the Villanova Wildcats today at 9:19 pm. If victorious, this will be the 6th time in Men’s Basketball history that the Tar Heels will claim the title of NCAA National Champions.

Should we win, there are sure to be celebrations. Whether it’s rushing Franklin Street or partying with friends, please remember to stay safe. No one wants to see a Tar Heel victory marred by personal injury or damage to property.

Alcohol checkpoints will be in place around downtown, as well as DWI enforcement. If alcohol is consumed, limit intake so to remain alert and in control at all times while amid the crowds of people. Please also remember to monitor your drinks at all times.

On-campus parking rules will change for Monday. Please read the posted information on the Transportation and Parking website to avoid getting ticketed or towed. Do not get behind the wheel or drive with anyone if alcohol is consumed.

Carolina is a family, so watch out for your fellow Tar Heels. Remember the buddy system and charge your phone before going out. In case of an emergency, please call 911 or locate a police officer who will be stationed in and around Franklin street.

Regardless of the outcome, stay safe and have fun. Let’s bring home a sweet Carolina victory. Go Heels!
