UNC Charlotte Center City will hold a second Community Day celebration from noon to 6:30 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 22.
Billed as an interactive afternoon, the celebration will feature UNC Charlotte alumnus and national poetry slam master Boris Rogers, along with an appearance by Norm the Niner, as well as local DJs, the band Vess, radio station La Raza and cultural and departmental stations.
“We’re inviting all students, family members, faculty, academic departments and the community at large to attend this year’s event,” said Donell Stines, community outreach coordinator for UNC Charlotte Center City. “Last year, approximately 200 attendees participated in our inaugural celebration. This is a great opportunity to meet new people, experience the surrounding local flavor, connect with local artists and learn more about UNC Charlotte Center City and the eclectic area around it.”
New for this year will be the “Center City Scavenger Hunt” that will take participants through the 11-story building.
