The 13 Percent | Last updated: 04/06 RSS

In spring 2015, only 13 percent of UNC's graduate and undergraduate students voted to elect a student body president who would represent them on the Board of Trustees, lobby on their behalf in Raleigh, meet with administrators to make major decisions about the UNC's future and help determine how much money students would pay in tuition and fees in the next year.

The Daily Tar Heel wants to change that. This blog will be a hub for all student government coverage, including election news, proposed changes to the Student Code and updates from Student Congress's finance committee as it allocates student fees to organizations.

At the DTH, we get so excited for election season. Paying attention to student government is the only way we can hold our leaders accountable. That's what we tell reporters every week as we send them off to Student Congress meetings.

Participating in government (as a voter, a candidate, an interested citizen) is a privilege, but democracy only works if people speak up. The 13 Percent is here to help you know what's up with your student government.

Fair Game | Last updated: 01/13 RSS

Fair Game is a podcast about the current issues facing college athletics hosted by Director of Enterprise Bradley Saacks. The inspiration for the production stems from Saacks' time as the University Editor in the 2014-15 academic year, when he saw firsthand the complexities of the current system of college athletics while covering UNC's athletic-academic scandal. The podcast covers topics relating to UNC's athletic-academic scandal, of course, but also larger national trends that affect the entire college sports landscape.

Long live the Tim Beckman era

After hiding in plain sight for all of training camp, Tim Beckman emerged on Wednesday as a volunteer assistant for the North Carolina football team. Not unlike Chancellor Carol Folt, I was shocked to hear the news.

But it didn't last long.

I'm gonna be real here: I am a tasteless, unapologetic hater of all things artistic.

Having "furry" sound appropriate in a coyote headline is a lot harder than you think

Aside from my friends, co-workers, professors who've convinced me not to drop out and move to New Orleans, etc., the most influential people in my life at Carolina have by far been the baristas. I had a torrid love affair with them in the newsletter last year, and I have plans with some of my faves ...

In which I nearly skipped the first day of class to keep listening to Frank's new album

I am one to do a lot of complaining. One might say it is my greatest skill. Were complaining a degree, I would already have my Ph.D; were it a country, I would be president; were it an Olympic sport, I would be the Simone Biles.
