Office DJ: Songs for a new haircut


"As we start a new semester at the beginning of a new year, join me in listening to songs that give us permission to sing, dance, jump and embrace when we finally feel joyfully comfortable with who and where we are."


Editorial: Go to your town's public libraries


"Public services exist as the name implies to serve the public, we should be focused on helping them help the most people, not making money or breaking even. If the library loses money, so what? It’s not a government-run bookstore. It’s a public repository of knowledge.  Go to the public library, and be glad it exists."


Editorial: Graduates should know about dignity of labor


"Every job pushes the world forward, whether it be direct or indirect. From the waiter who tames your hunger to the doctor who cares for your loved ones, our daily interactions with people of varying professions have a profound, but ignored, impact on our lives."


Editorial: A deep dive into the proposed Kenan-Flagler fee increase


"But the fee increase might produce more positive outcomes than anticipated, even down to helping diversify the undergraduate business program student body. While the cost increase will put some students in difficult financial positions and possibly deter concerned applicants, it could also open up the opportunity for more low-income candidates to attend the school."


Column: The guilts of being a first generation immigrant


"The guilt is very real; however, there should be no shame in upward mobility. Your family's sacrifices are honored when you progress and go after what fulfills you and it’s to be remembered that they made choices so that you could live to your fullest potential."


Column: Dear humanities majors...


Not everyone can solve for X, familiarize themselves with the anatomy of the human body or engineer software. But not everyone can analyze Shakespeare, do archival research or move a crowd with just their words either. You have been bestowed with skills that make you unique and have been placed exactly where you are meant to be. 


Column: Maybe you are the problem.


"Once you take a moment to recognize that you very well could be the problem, it becomes significantly easier to build back bridges that you once burned, and form healthier relationships with people around you."
