UNC School of the Arts skateboard ban is unique to the UNC system

Although seeing students rolling on their skateboards to get to class is not uncommon at UNC, other universities in the state have banned the practice. But UNC School of the Arts student leaders are fighting back. Student Body President Daryl Wade is compiling a survey of different policies related to skateboarding at UNC-system schools in an attempt to reverse that ban.At UNCSA, if a student is seen with a skateboard, it is taken away, Wade said.“They tell the students that the reason for their policy is because it endangers their art,” he said.
