Column: North Carolina's judicial elections are crucial for reproductive rights


"Our generation has the power and passion for political change, we just have to take that to the ballot box. Voting sends a direct message to those in power about what rights we demand from them. Whether it be voting rights, LGBTQ rights, or reproductive rights, we have the ability to push for them. Our passion must be taken to the polls because our reproductive freedom is on the line in 2022."


Column: It’s going down. I’m yelling Tinder.


"If you're reading this, I’m assuming you're a young, smart, single person who just wants to have picnics on the quad with a boo of your own. But let me tell you, there are better ways to make this happen than Tinder. Here are four tips to get a date like your parents did — no profile needed."


Column: What I am.


"What are you?"  "Out of all the 171,476 words in the English language, those three words are the ones I am most familiar with, a trio of old friends I’ve known since childhood."


Column: Kiss me, I'm (economically) insecure


"Unfortunately, the market is expected to continue to slow. Jerome Powell, chair of the Federal Reserve, basically guaranteed negative growth into 2023. So, if you're investing, kiss start-ups goodbye. Instead, cuddle up to over-the-counter makeup."


Editorial: Stop hating on community college


"Educational elitism is alive and well here at UNC. The institution and its students pride themselves on the ‘prestige’ that comes with the Chapel Hill name. Having school pride is awesome. Being pretentious is not."


Column: My foray into BookTok and the world of Colleen Hoover


"The New York Times bestselling author has charmed the people with her adult fiction and romance novels for the past few months. After being given her book 'Verity' last spring, I finally decided to see what all of the hype was about, and I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised."


Column: From not to hot – the evolution of thrifting


"People switch up how they feel about clothing all the time. But not everyone has the luxury of renovating their wardrobe every 5 to 10 business days. Therefore, I want to say kudos to the kids that used to thrift when it wasn’t in style — I see you and you deserve an apology."


Editorial: A pitch meeting with … our parents?


"There’s no such thing as a bad idea, but some definitely push the envelope. Here’s a compilation of the most envelope-pushing pitches we’ve received from our parents. And who knows, maybe you’ll see some of these turn into editorials soon (but probably not)."


Column: COVID-19 has changed "grind culture"


"Our post-COVID-19 era has developed a societal standard that contradicts what the past 40 to 50 years have prioritized: incessant perseverance. While this turn of events has emphasized wellness and self-care, it is possible our generation has consequently started to lose its edge."


Column: It's a privilege to be able to consume media critically


"Social media has definitely lowered the standard for current events reporting, but networks like Fox News or CNN aren’t much better, nor are newspapers. It’s a privilege to be able to spend hours researching after something significant happens, so sometimes the best we can do is be skeptical of news and set boundaries on how much we’re consuming."
