No Place Like UNC

I‘m sure I’m not the only UNC student whose friends seemed to be all over the place this summer. As for me, friends of mine were in NYC, New Orleans, Nashville, and D.C., just to name a few. In July, I sweltered in Houston, while I spent the rest of the summer traveling. Through it all, home felt very far away, and my friends felt even further. this summer made me realize how alienating time away from school can be for an undergrad.

Whatever, Trevor: the summer's biggest winners and losers

Not everyone can win — someone has to lose. That’s just how the world works. This is especially true for the many people involved in this summer’s various happenings, as the worlds of sports, pop culture and politics all created moments that were memorable, for both the best and worst of reasons.

Not My Liberals

When most Americans had their introduction to antifa, or anti-fascist, groups, it was an overwhelmingly peaceful collection of disparate peoples who opposed the white supremacists rallying in Charlottesville. In that setting, they appeared docile.

The end of the world isn't nigh

There are too many people, now.  That’s what I thought when I read that UNC had 40,792 applicants to the class of 2021 (a 14 percent increase from the year before).

Welcome to our opinion page

The opinion section of The Daily Tar Heel functions as a sounding board for what the public has to say and as a platform for great student writers to freely express themselves.

Column: My UNC bucket list

This column will be published on the last day of class. When Tyler, the opinion editor, told me I could write a column for today, I obviously thought a long time about what would be the most appropriate.

Column: What I saw in Looking Glass

Last week, I embarked on a solo expedition to Looking Glass. I sipped a latte, reminiscing on my Tuesday and listening to the egregiously loud game of Dungeons & Dragons unfolding at the table next to me.

Column: Order of the starry Phoenix

In 12th grade, our European history book spoke of a village in France that sheltered over 3,000 Jews during the height of the Holocaust. The refuge wasn’t secret; its mission was known, and the town’s unity defied the Nazis’ quest to continue searching for Jews.

Column: On not feeling queer enough

In one of my earliest memories, my socks are slick on the floor of my parents’ bathroom. Intentionally leaving the lights off, I take a plastic bin off the back of the toilet and gently place it on the floor.
