The Bell Tower Climb will be from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. and it is open to ALL seniors. The lines (fast pass and regular) for the climb will close at 3 p.m.
Thanks to dues paid by more than 69,000 GAA members, the GAA is able to open the doors to the Bell Tower so seniors may make the climb during Senior Week. Senior events such as the Bell Tower Climb are not paid for with University funds — that is no student fees, tuition or state appropriations — but are funded 100 percent by GAA member dues.
Seniors who have become new grad alumni members of the General Alumni Association AND who have donated at least $20.14 to the 2014 Senior Campaign for Carolina will receive a FAST PASS so you can skip the line. The FAST PASS line will always go in tower first — no matter how long the regular line is and the amount of time a person has been waiting in the regular line.
Seniors who have become new grad alumni members (life or annual) of the General Alumni Association AND who have donated at least $20.14 to the 2014 Senior Campaign for Carolina will qualify to receive a FAST PASS so you can skip the line.
Those that have become eligible for the FAST PASS are posted here.
FAST PASS qualification time ends on Wednesday, April 16 at 11:59 p.m.
The FAST PASS line will always go in first no matter how long the regular line is.
For years it has been an unauthorized tradition for seniors to sign the walls of the Bell Tower during their last days as Carolina students. Please refrain from signing anything on the historic fixtures, windows or any permanent aspect of the Bell Tower.
Each level will be monitored with interest of preserving our beloved Bell Tower in mind. Help us preserve the Bell Tower for future seniors, alumni and friends.
You can also purchase a senior shirt and get a senior sticker.
This event will happen rain or shine.
The Bell Tower Climb is presented and sponsored by the General Alumni Association. Senior events such as the Bell Tower Climb are not paid for with University funds but are funded by GAA member dues.
