November 14 is a big dill. It’s one of our favorite days of the year! National Pickle
Day is the perfect time for UNCSA students, alumni, faculty, staff, parents and friends
to share their Pickle pride and to honor our beloved mascot, the Fighting Pickle.
This year, we aren’t limiting the celebration to one day. Starting now, you can enjoy
using UNCSA-branded pickle GIFs on your Instagram stories 365 days a year.
A suite of UNCSA GIFs are now available to use on Instagram.
The initial 10-piece collection includes seven pickles, plus three fun UNCSA GIFs.
Below, you’ll find a step-by-step guide to use them, plus a short video walkthrough:

Tap the camera icon on the top left of your screen—or swipe right—to open stories
Tap on the bottom left of your screen to select a photo from your camera roll

If you’re not an Instagram user (but why, though?), we haven’t forgotten about you.
You can also send our GIFs via email or share to other social media platforms by visiting our GIPHY page.
