UNC seniors have a habit of stealing bricks from around campus at the end of the year to keep as souvenirs.

Any brick you take can and will be used against you

Think you're safe after stealing a brick? Think again. The UNC Police department views it as a criminal offense, and Carolina Housing punishes those found with bricks in their rooms.

Your ultimate summer guide for staying put at UNC

So you decided to take some summer classes at UNC. Maybe you realized that you wanted to graduate on time. Or your summer internship didn’t pan out. Either way, you’re here now, either you’ve got a car or your friend does, and you need some advice: What courses should you take, and what is there to do with your free time?

It's 2018, and it's about time people understood Women Also Know Stuff.   “Part of what’s going on is that people tend to have a set of networks, and their networks are perhaps based on who they read in graduate school or with whom they went to graduate school or have been colleagues,” said Layna Mosley, a UNC professor of political science.

“What the It’s On Us campaign is encouraging is that sexual violence is everyone’s issue,” said  Shelley Gist Kennedy, the program coordinator for the Carolina Women's Center. “There is no one who gets to opt out because it affects each of us and each of us have a role to play. You each have a role to play in preventing violence. You each have the potential to serve as an ally, as an active bystander, as a supporter to survivors.”


Moving forward after Arts Everywhere Day, UNC has a long term goal of increasing interest in the arts.

Despite Arts Everywhere initiative, UNC arts staff feels neglected by University

Arts initiatives like Arts Everywhere are creating a public platform for the arts at UNC, integrating them into campus life through new events, performances and installations of public art. But despite this visible appreciation for the arts, there are still signs of internal neglect. Many arts facilities on campus are in disrepair and have been for years. Sabine Gruffat, associate professor of studio art at UNC, pointed out that there’s no public space on campus for contemporary art.

 “Obviously we got to close prisons, we got to deal with ICE, we got to deal with statues like this, we got to deal with white supremacy and all these systemic problems that the criminal justice system, that the immigration system, that the military industrial complex all contribute to,” said Chelsea Manning, former United States soldier.
