    UNC was the 1st in our great State. I believe they have earned the right to be called the "Flagship." There is no University in our great State nor the ACC that has graduated as many top people from all walks of life to excel in their chosen field/careers than UNC-CH. The Stars are shining on UNC when is comes to this one. I didn't know this until unc70 posted this a few years ago. All Universities can also name how the stars changed their schools. Rich History will never be replaced from any of the schools. Withers was a good guy; but he missed this one.

    UNC, Duke, Wake, State, and UVA will always be a part of the ACC. Who knows about the rest.

    Fantastic citations, lil' buddy. Wikipedia, opinions printed in newspapers, conclusory statements with no support or analysis, etc. You've really built quite the body of evidence to support your contentions there - great job! If you find them to actually be authoritative, persuasive, or factually incontestable, you REALLY must have gone to Orange County Remedial College. You may have received a second-rate education, but at least you aren't a bandwagon Tarholer like most of your lower-primate comrades on this site.

    Thorp, has served as chancellor of the UNC system's flagship campus for four years, plans to remain at the helm of the campus until next June, when he will return to teaching chemistry. "

    Oh. My. God. The feeble-mindedness of you subhuman, bandwagon Tarholers is astonishing.

    Your absurd "rebuttal" does not include the word flagship in reference to UNC-Chapel Hill. It simply makes the same factually correct statement that I made before, that UNC is the oldest public university in the state (and arguably in the country, but take that issue up with UGA fans and alumni). Being the oldest, or first chronologically, does not make UNC the "flagship" of the NC public university system.

    Since you clearly don't understand the meaning of the word "flagship," I'll give you the definition: "the best or most important one of a group or system."
    http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/flagship

    Do you see ANYTHING in that definition about a flagship being the oldest or original entity in a group or system? Calling UNC the "flagship" of the UNC system is a matter of opinion; it is NOT an objectively-determined fact. The fans and alumni might feel like it is the flagship institution, but it is not officially deemed so as a factual matter.

    The first public institution of higher education in North Carolina, the school opened its doors to students on February 12, 1795.

    The 1931 session of the General Assembly redefined the University of North Carolina to include three state-supported institutions: the campus at Chapel Hill (now the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill), North Carolina State College (now North Carolina State University at Raleigh), and Woman's College (now the University of North Carolina at Greensboro). The new multi-campus University operated with one board of trustees and one president. By 1969, three additional campuses had joined the University through legislative action: the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, the University of North Carolina at Asheville, and the University of North Carolina at Wilmington.


    Pretty simple: First school in the system.

    Flagship. Nothing AT ALL to do with Everett Withers ROFL
