Two years later: grappling with drug-facilitated sexual assault at UNC

The term “knocktail” is well-known around campus to refer to the experience of going to a cocktail and experiencing a drug-facilitated sexual assault. The Daily Tar Heel spoke to several UNC students who had experiences with knocktails at distinct fraternities.  The students said these experiences had definite impacts on their lives, including their schoolwork. Of the fraternities contacted by The Daily Tar Heel, The Sigma Nu Nationals Organization said it had no information regarding the incident, while another fraternity denied the accusations.

Defying expectations: It's Megan Crowley's 'normal'

“I don’t know anything different,” she said. “It’s my normal.” Megan Crowley doesn't let her rare disease dictate her life. She has two degrees from Notre Dame and is working on a a third one in social work at UNC. After being diagnosed with Pompe at 15 months, Crowley's family was told she would never be able to walk or stand on her own, requiring 24-hour nursing care. Told she probably wouldn't live past her first few years of life, Crowley is refusing to conform to the odds she was given.
