Register to Vote with Turbovote
UNC Charlotte’s partnership with TurboVote is an important aspect of our student-based voter registration and mobilization efforts.
TurboVote is a non-profit agency that runs a software program to help students register to vote, update their voter registration, and request an absentee ballot. Turbovote will send participants all necessary voter registration forms along with a stamped envelope. The software also sends electronic reminders to participants regarding important local and federal elections dates and locations; you must sign up by September 26.
Venture Hiking and Adventure Trips Scheduled
Throughout this month, the Venture program is conducting a number of outdoor adventure trips open to the UNC Charlotte and greater communities. Participants can enjoy excursions that range from canoeing to hiking. Experience is not required, and instruction is provided to prepare for trip activities.
Venture trips are led by highly qualified staff members who not only recognize an exciting adventure but facilitate learning from the experience. "The outdoors is a perfect place to expand your comfort zone and grow as a person," said Brian Holcomb, assistant director for Venture trips. "We seek to provide opportunities to practice self-reliance, improve physical fitness, build community and develop skills that facilitate success in the backcountry and in life."
