Water at UNC-Chapel Hill

From the "abundance of springs" described by founder William R. Davie to the conservation efforts of today, water has always been an important part of life on the UNC campus. This exhibit, inspired by the university's two-year "Water in Our World" theme, explores the role of water in UNC history.
