Column: Is being 'woke' the new corporate trend?

From burning shoes to giving praise, Nike's decision to have Colin Kapernick as the face of their most recent campaign has sparked a wide array of reactions. But are they really "woke," or are they just trying to appeal to younger generations?

Column: The witching hour

"Often I am offended at the notion of someone else deciding my level of innocence for me, but, as it has passively been pointed out to me by many, I am but a weak little female, so ultimately I’m not qualified to determine who I really am."

Viewpoints: Don't even talk about video games

Gun control is easily the most polarized issue in America right now. It’s an issue that’s complex and layered, but if you’re going to debate about it, please bring up points that are relevant to the conversation.

Editorial: We demand action on the heatwave

It’s hot. So, so hot. Hellishly hot, some might say. Sweat runs down your your back. Your glasses start to slip down your greasy, sweaty nose. You’re a mess. Everyone is appalled.

Viewpoints: Memes Connect Carolina

Who knew memes could mean so much more than raunchy laughs?  As I continue my years at Carolina, I hope to contribute to that conversation and dabble in meme creation myself.

Column: UNC needs greater focus on class diversity

My view of the University is rather simple: the University is a place where those students who are the most talented should go after high school to continue their education. Attempts to create lasting social differences through universities can be better achieved by other means.

Guest Op-Ed: Silent Sam from a historian's perspective

"As someone who teaches American military history, I cannot count the number of student-veterans who have expressed dismay to me over the statue and what it represents in their eyes: war against United States and the killing of its military personnel."

Editorial: UNC should defer rush

Universities across the country are implementing delayed rush policies in an attempt to give first-years time to breathe and establish themselves before committing to Greek life. Perhaps this is a policy UNC would be wise to adopt, as well.
