A Letter from the President 

Dear Carolina Family,

I am both excited and honored to be the President of The Carolina Athletic Association (CAA)!  CAA exists to bring UNC athletics to you! The CAA represents every UNC student in athletic affairs and is the students’ voice to the Athletic Department. We stay busy all year, organizing and planning many major activities on campus, including Beat Duke Week, Bosh Bash, trips to select away football games, the Men’s Basketball ticket distribution system, and more!

Our various committees work to both improve and publicize athletic activities to the Carolina Student Body. The Sports Marketing Committee promotes Men’s and Women’s Olympic sports, as well as Bosh Bash for Baseball in the Spring. The Special Projects committee plans an annual trip to support our Football team on the road every year, Beat Duke Week in the spring, and organizes philanthropic and various service projects with other organizations, such as the Carolina For The Kids and Relay For Life. The Ticketing committee runs the Turn-It-Back Line and the game day activities for all Men’s Home Basketball games. The Cabinet of the CAA helps oversee each of these events, and through our Campus Relations Committee, tries to make you aware of each and every one.

Every student is a member of CAA and student involvement is crucial to our success. Let us know what you like or how we can improve. Three great ways to stay involved are to like the Carolina Athletic Association Facebook page, follow us on Twitter and Instagram (@unccaa). Stop by our office at 3508-C in the student union or email us at if you ever have any questions, comments or concerns. I am so excited to be your President and am looking forward to another phenomenal year of Carolina Athletics!

Go Heels!

Kensley Sutton
President, Carolina Athletic Association
