This Day in the History of the
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
"This old University has busted and gone to hell today." This statement was found scribbled in chalk on a recitation room wall in South Building with the date: February 1, 1871. Reeling from the difficulties of Reconstruction and a virtual boycott by state citizens against the Republican-installed university administration, the University was forced to close in 1871. It would not open its doors for students again until 1875.
