Farewell Column: I'm going to sleep


"I’m the first to leave every party I go to. My bed and I have a passionate affair that I refuse to cut short in the name of social graces. I always know when to say my goodbyes. And while I’m not a senior, it’s time I say goodbye to The Daily Tar Heel."


Farewell Column: A season of lessons


"So, when the opportunity arose, I applied to become the diversity, equity and inclusion chairperson at the paper. I didn’t seek the position assuming I could rewrite the DTH’s legacy in one to two years. (After all, it is the campus paper of a University built by slaves.) Instead, I sought the position because I felt like I would at least be honest with the newsroom about its issues, if nothing else."


Farewell Column: Farewell, home of 'Elise-isms'


"When I connect with people — especially in the journalism world — I find those connections unbreakable. There’s some special sauce that we all share that makes us crazy enough to enjoy working insane hours and Slacking during class – and I think that sauce is delicious."


Farewell Column: I have a lot of feelings


"Yet another feeling is purpose. The DTH gave me a chance to be a part of something bigger than myself — a chance to feel like I’ve served our community in some small way by simply helping to vet stories for inaccuracies and good-ol’ AP style."


Farewell Column: Realizing Who in Fact “we” Are, together


"I never would’ve made the decision to pursue journalism without the people I worked with. I doubt I would’ve even applied for that job. The DTH office isn’t redeemed by its comforting and peaceful energy, nor its snack selection. It’s redeemed by the people inside it."

Letter: UNC faculty oppose legislative, Board of Governors and Board of Trustees overreach

"Instead of heeding this warning, our leaders continue to disregard campus autonomy, attack the expertise and independence of world-class faculty, and seek to force students’ educations into pre-approved ideological containers. We must protect the principles of academic freedom and shared governance which have long made UNC a leader in public education."

Column: COVID-19 health care is still a necessity


"There is a huge lesson to have learned from our COVID-19 response: When it comes to responding to public health crises, prevention is everything and complacency is dangerous. It can’t just be under emergency circumstances that we remove the barriers to vital, life-saving services. Our lives are still on the line."


Column: Did friendships make it onto your post-graduation checklist?


"Making friends post-graduation isn’t necessarily a focus area at University Career Services or Counseling and Psychological Services, even though social connection is an essential part of our well-being. Connecting in this way is a skill that has to be learned, but college life makes the process seem more natural than it actually is."
