Housing Partners with UNC School of Social Work

UNC-Chapel Hill graduate student Alex Lombardi had an aha moment shortly after she began working as an intern for the Housing Department.

Public housing neighborhoods in Chapel Hill are surrounded by student housing. But the communities and residents don’t really mix.

“In Chapel Hill, public housing is so well integrated, that many students are unaware,” she said. “When you’re a student you’re in a sort of bubble.”

"In the rhythm of the seasons, fall is true beginning of the year in a college town. In the South, in particular, the cooler, crisper breezes of September dispel the lethargy of the long, muggy summer months, and the bustle of returning students jolts the sleepy downtown streets back to life. Just as the song of the scarlet cardinals heralds the renewal of spring, the influx of students pouring into campus heralds a new academic year."
