Alma Mater Etiquette Question
I am not a Carolina alum, and I had been told many years ago, that at the end of the Alma Mater, when the hand is raised at "Forever to Thee", that was a gesture reserved for alumni only. I have always removed my hat, and stood respectfully while it is played. Now I see just about everyone raising their hands at the end, some of which, I wonder if they even finished middle school, let alone graduated from college. What is proper etiquette?
