Word on the Street: Have you seen the new season of 'Stranger Things'?

The first season of Netflix's "Stranger Things" received critical acclaim and major success as it catapulted the show into the mainstream. Now, with season two released last Friday, we found out what students thought of the new season, and what they are hoping for in new episodes. Staff writer Joseph Keys asked UNC students, “Have you seen the new season of 'Stranger Things'? If so, what do you think about it? If not, what are your opinions on the show?”

School of Information and Library Sciences hosted a Harry Potter Night Friday.

SILS celebrates Harry Potter with a magical event

Most people abide by certain rules in libraries: don’t talk, whisper if you must and don’t eat or drink. A library would be the last place one would throw a party, especially the library in a highly respected school of library science.  Why then, one might ask, was the School of Information and Library Sciences (SILS) library at UNC packed with people dressed like wizards, all snacking and socializing last Friday? It was Harry Potter Night.

The Marching Tar Heels bring back the majorettes

Since 2011, the Marching Tar Heels were unable to find a single majorette skilled enough to join the band. That is, until first-year students Ava Smith and Ciara Gillis twirled onto the scene. Now the band has two baton-wielding performers for its pregame and halftime shows.
