Column: Meet your opinion editor

"The opinion page is the center of the Chapel Hill community, offering a place for discussions on topics that directly affect us. It’s the soul of the paper and the community. Running that is a responsibility that Elisa Kadackal, our new assistant opinion editor, and I hold seriously."

Column: Am I tidy?

Maybe senior year is far more about confronting grief than sparking joy. Maybe letting go does not require abandoning sentimentality. Maybe the most sentimental thing we can do is let go.

Column: My RA was unjustly fired

My RA was one of my closest friends on campus. UNC feels like less of a home for me without him on my floor. I believed in UNC’s commitment to my First-Year Experience, an experience that my RA was essential to creating and one that the administration actively damaged by removing him, especially in such a drawn-out, confusing way.

Guest Column: Bury Silent Sam

"It is time to make amends and the first step is to shout loud and clear ‘never again.’ It is time to demonstrate to those near and far that lux, libertas means doing the right thing, especially if it is difficult. So, yes, abide by the law but let us use our wisdom and creativity to do so in a way that affirms all of the Carolina Community."

Column: Resolutions matter

"Whether you’ve committed to working out five times a week or spending less time online shopping in class or eating more broccoli or traveling to New Zealand to visit Peter Jackson’s Middle Earth, (OK, I’m definitely projecting here), your goals for this year are valid and worth making."

Column: Reflections on my first day on Earth

"Yesterday I was brought into this world ... That’s right, I was born yesterday, just yesterday! Given the current political climate I’ve just learned about, I thought I should relay some of my newborn thoughts on all of the current events I’ve just learned about within the past 24 hours."

Column: The Edit Board Secret Santa Roast!

The Editorial Board has had a lot of disagreements at board meetings this semester but our relationships are largely defined by mutual respect and good-natured ribbing. This may be a politically divisive time, but friendships still can, and do, happen across the aisle. So, without further ado, allow me to present the DTH Edit Board Roast.
