UNC system happenings for April 16, 2018

The new president of the UNC-system student body president, elected Wednesday, is Bettylenah Njaramba, a junior at N.C. Central University. 

Drugs were found in an ECU fraternity house Tuesday after a long investigation.

UNC-system President Margaret Spellings spoke about education reform and investment at the Reagan Institute’s Summit on Education in Washington.

"I think people are exhausted with education reform or feel like it's not possible to close the achievement gap," Spellings said. "So I think the boulder is drifting back down the hill because of a lack of urgency around the imperative of closing the achievement gap."


Greek Life

The Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life and Community Involvement works with student members of UNC's 56 fraternities and sororities and those living in off-campus housing. The staff provides advising, support, training, resources, programs and services, maintains communications with faculty and alumni advisors and parents, works closely with national organizations and governing bodies, organizes leadership retreats and workshops, supports the academic performance of fraternity and sorority members, and recognizes positive achievements of individuals and organizations.

Beta Upsilon Chi to join Interfraternity Council as associate member

What began as a slight curiosity in 2015 by then UNC sophomore Harrison Toohey, would later become the foundation for a new Greek chapter at UNC.   Toohey's conversations with the fraternity members at his summer job, Pine Cove Christian Camp, transformed into a new chapter of Beta Upsilon Chi, abbreviated as BYX, at UNC focused on providing members an alternative fraternity experience.

The speed bumps for Uber plans have gotten bigger

Plans to provide free Uber rides for UNC students have officially stalled. Student Body President Bradley Opere said the talks between Uber and UNC are at a standstill because a decision can’t be reached over accessibility and liability issues.
