Yesterday was graduation day at both The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Duke University.
I'm on the "send" lists of the development offices at both universities.
Today JinC News can report that in a head-to-head development office contest, UNC has scored a "win" over Duke.
While there's been nothing so far from Duke's development office to its Class of '07 members, this morning UNC Class of '07 members received the following email:
As the Class of 2007 joins the ranks of Carolina alumni, we invite you to think back to what made Carolina such a special place for you. Ball games enjoyed, friendships forged, wisdom gleaned — and opportunities made possible by private support."Hark, the sound of Tarheel crdit cards."
Click here to see a Flash video celebrating why we love Carolina. And please help us keep providing opportunities to students by giving to the Carolina Annual Fund. Make a gift online at http://carolinafirst.unc.edu/gift/ — because you love Carolina.

But don't rest on your laurals because JinC News has just learned that Duke's development office is alreary at work preparing for the '08 rematch.
