Campus Safety Commission discusses community standards and rising COVID-19 cases

With a little more than a month left before the fall semester is set to begin, critical questions about the return to on-campus operations remain.  The Campus Safety Commission met Wednesday to discuss some of these concerns, including implementation of community standards, the current rate of COVID-19 cases and what could trigger potential “off-ramps” to send students home.

T-shirts provide snapshots of student life

Students dragging themselves to 8 a.m. classes are known for dressing casually, but a lot can be learned about campus life by looking at the t-shirts they throw on. Warm spring days draw out the #GDTBATH (Good Day to be A Tar Heel) shirts in full force, and the Quad is full of students decked out in Carolina blue.

Army ROTC builds character, leaders

UNC’s Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC) isn’t the military camp your parents threaten to send you to or another version of Cadet Kelly, but a college based program that successfully prepares students to serve as an officer in the United States army.  UNC is one of about 1,700 universities in the United States to have an ROTC program, having about 70 students enrolled.

WOTS: What was your first-year dorm experience like?

Living in a dorm your first-year is a one of a kind experience, and each dorm has its own vibe and personality. Some students thrived on their dorm and even hall parties, while others barely knew their next door neighbor and experienced a more studious atmosphere.
