On the rare occasion that I don’t have anything planned in the afternoon or evening (and on the less rare occasion that I’m trying to find a way to put off writing papers and studying for exams) I love spending time with my suite mates! This evening we decorated our door for the holidays! | Photo by Patrick Bradey ‘21 #TakeoverTuesday

Enjoying the Autumn colors before my last class of the day, POLI 100H, Introduction to American Government. Even as someone who considers himself a civically engaged and informed person, this class has allowed me to explore new perspectives and develop new ideas on my own political leanings. | Photo by Patrick Bradey ‘21 #TakeoverTuesday

Since getting to UNC, I always make time during my day to read as a break from my classes, and there’s no better place to do it than on South Building’s sunny steps! Already this semester I’ve had to restock my shelf over both breaks (and for those of you who are curious, today’s book is “The Fountains of Paradise” by Arthur C. Clarke). | Photo by Patrick Bradey ‘21 #TakeoverTuesday

ENGL 105, required of all first-year students, is made a lot more fun when there are four other scholars to keep you company in class! Covering a wide variety of composition, I’ve enjoyed being able to produce poems, policy proposals and even pieces of visual art all for the same class! | Photo by Patrick Bradey ‘21 #TakeoverTuesday

Good morning! My name is Patrick Bradey, a first-year scholar from Charlotte, NC and a double major in Peace, War and Defense and Political Science, and I’m excited to take you through my day here at UNC! And there’s no better way to start that day than with breakfast with fellow scholars Ruth Samuel ‘21 and Jona Boçari ‘21! | Photo by Patrick Bradey ‘21 #TakeoverTuesday
