Carolina After Dark

Carolina After Dark is the outreach initiative for late-night programming. Carolina After Dark promotes and enhances late night, weekend events on Carolina's campus. Students looking for something to do on the weekends can look to Carolina After Dark as their one-stop-shop for all things social on the weekends.

CAD events are open to all students, no cost, substance-free, and end at, or after 9pm on Thursday, Friday, or Saturday. Organizations may request program sponsorship from the Carolina After Dark fund through the Student Organization Council within Student Life and Leadership.
