On the road again...You've probably seen them on the road — specialty license plates that come with a school logo. All but three of the UNC system schools have them. Unfortunately, we're one of the three.
The UNCG Alumni Association wants to change that. To get a Spartan plate, featuring the UNCG rising shield athletic logo, 300 applications must be received. The cost is $25 ($55 for a personalized plate) and a portion of the fees from each plate will go to support the UNCG Alumni Association and the Spartan Club.
Signing up is easy. Visit uncglicenseplate.info to fill out the application and payment information. Then, encourage all of your friends to show their UNCG pride and sign up for a new plate.
If you signed up for the previous license plate campaign, please note this new design replaces the one planned in 2008. The alumni association hopes you will continue to support UNCG with the current license plate design. However, if you do not choose to do so, your money will be refunded.
Plates will be produced after 300 applications have been received. The North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles will mail it to you directly.
The gift of memory
Already thinking about what to get for the Spartans in your life? A piece of art might be the perfect gift.

Last year, artist William Mangum '75, '83 MFA painted a watercolor portrait of the Alumni House. The finished work hangs over the mantle in the Pecky Cypress Room in the Alumni House. Years earlier, he painted a portrait of Foust Building, called “Centennial Roots.”
