As the day winds down, I wanted to finish with one of my favorite pictures from studying abroad last year. For me it symbolizes that while we only get four precious years to be a student at UNC, this school becomes part of our identities and travels with us wherever we go. It has been such a pleasure showing you around today and I hope you have a great night! | Photo by Sebastian Nabatoff ‘19 #TakeoverTuesday

Just finished up a group project meeting for my Consulting Skills and Frameworks class, which is taught by Professor Steve Jones ‘74. Lots of hard work, but I’m lucky to have such a great team to work with! | Photo by Sebastian Nabatoff ‘19 #TakeoverTuesday

My final class of the day was National and International Security with Dr. Sarah Bush Castro and fellow scholar Rachel Joyner ‘19. Our first unit has been a discussion about why people go to war and today we tried to answer this question with the humanities. We not only tackle the important questions and challenges that face our world, but we also have a strong selfie game to back it up. | Photo by Sebastian Nabatoff ‘19 #TakeoverTuesday

Will Benson ‘20 and I just finished our first class of the day! The class is BUSI 405: Leading and Managing, which loosely translates to “understanding yourself, others, and how to successfully navigate the workplace”. We are pictured here with Dr. Sezer who does a great job making class discussions interesting, engaging, and highly relatable. Needless to say, this class is always a highlight of my Tuesdays. | Photo by Sebastian Nabatoff ‘19 #TakeoverTuesday

Starting off the day right at Whole Foods with a ~wholesome~ person, my friend Nick Paulson (known colloquially as Nicky P). People like Nick and the friendships I’ve built over the past few years have been a defining aspect of my UNC experience. | Photo by Sebastian Nabatoff ‘19 #TakeoverTuesday

Good morning Morehead-Cain followers! My name is Sebastian Nabatoff and I am a junior majoring in Peace, War, and Defense & Business. I’m kicking off the day with a picture from my Outdoor Leadership summer in Wyoming. At the time I had only heard second hand how great it was to be a Tar Heel. Now I absolutely know why. Join me today to see a few of the many reasons why it’s always a #gdtbath ! | Photo by Sebastian Nabatoff ‘19 #TakeoverTuesday
