Each Tuesday from 2-3pm, students come together in room 102 of Abernethy Hall to be immersed in the Cherokee language. Cherokee has been spoken in North Carolina for over 11,000 years and is a quintessential part of the state’s history. Dr. Benjamin Frey, the host of the coffee hour, welcomes UNC students, faculty and staff with coffee, cookies, and a relaxed atmosphere. No experience in Cherokee language is required. Recently, this event was highlighted by the University! Congratulations!
