Nothing sets you in the holiday mood more than sitting down and watching a Christmas classic. From comedies to musicals, people's favorite movie varies, but the one thing that is a constant is the joy the movies bring.  Arts and Entertainment writer Emilie Scheuerle asked students, “What is your favorite Christmas movie?”

Carolina Jams will host first concert at Local 506

It’s no secret that UNC is home to a lot of musically talented students.  Chances are, if you’ve taken a stroll through the pit, you’ve probably seen a cappella groups advertising one of their upcoming concerts. And if you ventured into Fraternity Court on game day, there’s likely been a band or two performing. However, if you wanted to join a club last year that catered towards musicians who just want to jam out and play music, you were out of luck. That is, until Carolina Jams formed late last year and took the stage as one of UNC’s newest clubs on campus this semester.
