First year Ashley Boldt says Uber is helpful for out-of-state students like herself who don’t always have access to a car on campus.

Uber everywhere: ridesharing companies used for a variety for a reasons

UNC first-year Ashley Boldt typically uses Uber several times a week. Without a car on campus, the service lets her go to the supermarket, the airport and to destinations off-campus with her friends.   A good Uber driver is on time, doesn’t scare her with their driving and is generally a nice person, Boldt said. Occasionally, she said she has had drivers that have made her feel uncomfortable. “A few times I’ve seen my drivers go off the route of the GPS and I always get nervous for a second, even if nothing has ever come of it,” she said.

Midnight lunches and Chapel Hill's third shift

When Jessica Toney texts her boyfriend during her "lunch break," he's often going to sleep.  Toney, a UNC senior who works midnight shifts in a lab at the UNC Medical Center every other weekend, has her routine down to a science. After a full day of classes, she eats a large bowl of pasta and takes a nap for five hours before heading into work.   “I'm suddenly left alone in the world,” she said. “Everyone's asleep or getting back from their parties and I'm still going strong at work — sometimes I just post to my Snapchat story just to feel like I'm not alone, even though I know none of them will see it until the morning.”
