Tighten Up

Slow and Steady
N.C. high schoolers scored higher on the SAT last year, but the state is still 47th in the nation. At this rate, we'll be No. 1 around the time Florida falls into the ocean.

Bombs Away
There was a spate of bomb scares throughout the Triangle this week. It's enough to make you long for the simple days of fires on South Campus.

Open for Business
Davis Library will be open 24 hours a day when students return from their long weekend. Now you'll have somewhere to sleep when your roommate locks you out of the room.

Tar Heel Quotables

"Yeah, I think we were geeked to play this game."
Football Coach John Bunting
On the football team's state of mind going into the Oklahoma game. A "geeked" state of mind might not be the best thing for the football field.

"Brent Road is already dead, the cops are the killers, and we're the mourners."
N.C. State Student Oktay Rifki
Discussing the police crackdown at Brent Road. But, really, how often do you get to do a keg stand at a funeral?

"It makes me proud of my school."
Senior Katy Dimmick
Talking about the Bell Tower. Let's face it, we all came to UNC for one reason: the giant, broken clock in the middle of campus.

"Nothing works and nobody's listening."
SBP Justin Young
Commenting on his efforts to persuade legislators to vote down the tuition increase. Hey, that sounds a lot like our advising system.
