Happy Monday, UNC! It’s cold, it’s dreary and you probably don’t have Duke tickets — but on the plus side, at least your campus newspaper cares enough to email you. Here’s our news roundup for Monday:
- “Overall, I don’t think UNC’s fitness culture is a bad thing. But it becomes a problem when we let this good thing become our everything.” One in five college students struggle with disordered eating or negative body image. And often, the “perfect Carolina student ideal” does more harm than good.
- UNC men’s basketball blew out Pittsburgh 96-65 on Saturday, giving graduate transfer Cameron Johnson the opportunity to score 14 points against his old team.
- The tents in Duke’s Krzyzewskiville are closed for business, following a flu outbreak that affected parts of the camp. In totally unrelated news, everyone at the DTH seems to be over their colds, and none of us got them from sleeping in 30-degree weather for basketball tickets.
- U.S. Rep. David Price spoke in Carrboro on Saturday, addressing constituent concerns about gerrymandering, the recent government shutdown, Dreamers and the Mueller investigation.
- “I hope that the girls found a sport that they really enjoy today.” On Sunday, young girls and their families showed up to Fetzer Gym, where nine UNC women’s teams celebrated the 31st annual National Girls and Women in Sports Day.
- Well, that name looks familiar. For many professors, assigning their own texts can be fraught with ethical concerns.
- For the 13th year in a row, UNC saw an increase in applications, leading the Class of 2022 to break last year’s record number of Carolina hopefuls.
- Men’s lacrosse started their season with a win, and the continuation of a streak for one senior that’s approaching a school record.
- And on Saturday, a UNC track and field sophomore accomplished a personal best that’s part of a proud family tradition.
- UNC women’s basketball celebrated their 1998 team for its ACC Championship and former players at last night’s game against Miami — but during the actual game, the current-day team fell flat.
- Hug me, brotha! UNC men's tennis pulled off a tight win against Illinois on Saturday, thanks to sophomore Josh Peck.
