UNCW Traditions
University of North Carolina Wilmington traditions date back to the very year that Wilmington College first opened its doors to students. In 1947, a five-man student council was convened to secure a nickname and school colors for the first athletic teams. They chose the nickname “Seahawks” and the colors green and gold to represent the ocean and sandy beaches. The current school colors teal, gold and blue represent ‘the green of the ocean and the gold of the sand with the blue of the deep ocean’. Other UNCW traditions include Midnight Madness, the Involvement Carnival, Trask Trek and Homecoming. In addition, the Class of 2000 gifted the University a clock tower which is located on Campus Commons. It remains a significant part of important events and memorial programs.
