Letter: ​Students can raise money to help others

Last weekend, I had the pleasure of visiting the quad for the first time. I noted with pleasure my ancestor’s name on the monument listing the original trustees of UNC.



Letter: ​Share your computer issues with the library

We at UNC Libraries were disheartened to read Zachary Rothwell’s Feb. 20 letter, “Computers in Davis don’t work well.”



Letter: ​DTH needs to treat women’s sports fairly

I’m writing because The Daily Tar Heel’s sexist sports coverage has gone far enough.



Letter: ​UNC should promote civil discourse

Those on UNC’s campus may have recently noticed a flier that encouraged stealing and burning Trump supporters’ “Make America Great Again” hats and attacking fascists.



Letter: ​Computers in Davis don’t work well

How do you like those computers in Davis Library?



Letter: ​Alt-right 'minority' isn’t under threat

On Feb. 13, Chris Watson wrote to the DTH that there is a small, but growing “minority” on campus. This supposed minority lurks everywhere, under many names, and in all departments.



Letter: ​We need honesty, not political half-truths

I am writing in response to the editorial “The guards of democracy,” which heaped praise upon conservatives as guards against large government and authoritarianism.



Letter: DTH Yale editorial was misguided

Your comments about Zora Neale Hurston in your Feb. 14 editorial are misguided. The Trustees never considered the possibility of renaming Saunders Hall in the spring of 2015 for Hurston for two obvious reasons. 



Letter: ​Policy-makers should observe classrooms

I have never been one to be scared of “bureaucracy,” but recent appointments have me worried. My reasons for concern are, to be honest, selfish. But I also find them valid, and I won’t stop fighting for what I think is right.



Letter: ​Alt-right letter rife with false complaints

You identify yourself as an alternative right sympathizer and in your letter to the editor complain about all us “lefties” and “intellectual do-gooders” suppressing your alternative right views.



Letter: ​Somers editorial was woefully uninformed

The Feb. 10 opinion piece “Keep a close eye on UNC’s new hire — another spokesperson” was an out-of-bounds, uniformed character attack that showed a lack of understanding of the relationship between the University and the legislature.



Letter: 'Trump is the worst' column was the worst

On Thursday, The Daily Tar Heel published a column titled “Depth of my Trump anger,” consisting entirely of 153 instances of the phrase “Trump is the worst.”



Letter: The alternative right exists on our campus

I am part of a small but growing minority on this campus. We come from all walks of life and are present in every academic department.



Letter: ​Let the fro grow for UNC Walk for Health

In support of North Carolina star basketball players Joel Berry, Isaiah Hicks and Justin Jackson and their sculptured afro dreadlocks hairstyles, UNC Walk for Health has begun a campaign to encourage the entire Tar Heel team to “let the locks of the hair on their heads grow long” for the rest of the season. (Nm. 6:5, Lv. 19:27: 21:5).



Letter: ​Chapel Hill should support nation’s laws

Your recent article entitled “Forum discusses immigrant rights and laws” exposes the hypocrisy and double talk which has run amok in Chapel Hill. Only in this “Alice in Wonderland” world can we pick and choose which laws to follow.



Letter: Religious values split our political parties

In the DTH editorial “For God or Party” you ask “if there are clear lines in the sand for Christian religious leaders” as they decide whether or not to stand with the Republicans, and specifically with President Trump.



Letter: ​DTH has too many ties to endorse

The editorial board of The Daily Tar Heel endorsed Alexander Peeples and Courtney Staton for Campus Y Co-Presidents.



Letter: ​Use waterpocalypse memories to mobilize

Our campus and town was brought to a standstill last Friday when a series of unfortunate events led to a critical water shortage.



Letter: ​Apply to be a Chancellor’s Fellow

The countdown has started, seniors! Less than four months away until graduation day. For some, May 14 could not get here sooner.



Letter: ​Student Congress didn’t accuse Nail

Online over the weekend and in Monday’s print edition, The Daily Tar Heel published updates relating to a recent Board of Election decision.
