'What a mess. Won’t be texting': More messages from UNC post-Silent Sam revealed

On Friday, WRAL released texts and emails exchanged between UNC faculty and administration before and shortly after Confederate monument Silent Sam fell.  In the  messages, faculty and administration discussed what was happening at the protest, expressed shock when it was pulled down and coordinated media strategy. They also discussed their messaging in reaction to the demonstration, with some saying that they should be clear in expressing how wrong it was.  In the aftermath, messages were also exchanged about student government, and their subsequent response to monument's toppling.

The decades-long tradition of faculty gym uniforms, including laundry services and clothing storage, is coming to an end this May.

Faculty feels removal of 'Fetzer Grays' highlighted poor communication

On May 11, all clothing and basket service will cease at Fetzer Hall, bringing an end to the decades-long “Fetzer Grays” tradition. Under the current system, faculty can store their gym clothes in baskets provided by Fetzer. The gym provides faculty with exercise clothing and even washes it for them. The cessation of the service is indicative of a broader concern coming from UNC staff that the University is not supporting healthy lifestyles to the extent necessary to combat America’s increasing obesity problem.
