The Library at North Campus is hosting North Carolina in the Great War, an exhibit from the NC Department of Natural and Cultural Resources.  This traveling exhibit contains panels with information on both the soldiers abroad and the homefront here in North Carolina. It shares information on the various military installations in the state, discusses U-boat activity off the N.C. coast in 1918, and seeks to put the war in context.

An informational lecture series addressing the War’s significance will take place during the exhibit’s tenure at the College.  Guest speakers include…
