Wondering where to take your next bathroom break? The DTH has an answer!

It is a well-known fact that campus is home to some shitty bathrooms (no pun intended). Long study sessions in Davis Library are not made any easier by bathrooms with missing or broken stall doors, faucets that blast you with jets of water and overflowing trashcans.  That said there are some great bathrooms on campus. This guide should help you find them by pointing out a few of the best. Just a reminder that these views are my own and do not represent those of The Daily Tar Heel.

UNC makes strides to become a hub for business development

UNC is a  launch pad for startups and research ventures according to data published by the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Economic Development on behalf of Innovate Carolina. The office tracks data on the success of ventures founded by University faculty, staff or students at campus or three years after leaving. 


The Daily Tar Heel will receive student government funding to reimburse reporter travel

The Daily Tar Heel was approved to receive funding from student fees to cover travel expenses. The DTH stopped receiving funding from the University in 1993, to avoid a conflict of interest.  “Since we’re serving the University with our sports coverage, we’re serving our students that way. We think it’s fair that we ask for some money to cover that,” said Matt Queen, president of the DTH Board of Directors.

Biomedical engineering program gives students the best of both worlds

What would happen if you took a nationally-ranked hospital system and school of medicine and combined it with one of the finest engineering programs in the nation? You would get the UNC/North Carolina State University Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering, a unique partnership between the two universities that gives students access to a wealth of resources across both campuses.

Matthew Andrews hits a home run to win Chiron Award

If you were going to die tomorrow what would you talk about tonight? That’s the prompt given to the annual winner of the Chiron Award for their award lecture. The Chiron Award is given each year to a professor nominated by their students in recognition of their character and service to the undergraduate population. It was inspired by the last lecture of Randy Pausch, a professor at Carnegie-Mellon who had been diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer.
