Graham High School will debut a new way to tour the University of North Carolina’s 17 campuses this Friday, Oct. 26. Beginning at 8:30 a.m., juniors and seniors will be given a set of virtual reality goggles that pair with the free smartphone application “Gear Up VR,” which they will use to visit campuses by simulation. Afterward, they will attend a college fair with representatives from the schools waiting to answer their questions. UNC President Margaret Spellings will be there to kick off the inaugural event — her second time at the school. Spellings visited Graham on a listening tour in February 2017.
