The Editorial Board takes on: "Things we like to do."

This is the first in a series of illustrations of discussion points and individual opinions from editorial board meetings that didn't make the page.

Each of The Daily Tar Heel's editorials are pitched, written and published as collaborative pieces from the Editorial Board. Every other week, the board will share some of our discussion points that didn't make the cut from our meetings to the page in a segment that features individual board members' voices. To start off "The Editorial Board Takes On" series, we asked each other what we liked to do in our free time.

Column: The witching hour

"Often I am offended at the notion of someone else deciding my level of innocence for me, but, as it has passively been pointed out to me by many, I am but a weak little female, so ultimately I’m not qualified to determine who I really am."

Viewpoints: Don't even talk about video games

Gun control is easily the most polarized issue in America right now. It’s an issue that’s complex and layered, but if you’re going to debate about it, please bring up points that are relevant to the conversation.

Editorial: We demand action on the heatwave

It’s hot. So, so hot. Hellishly hot, some might say. Sweat runs down your your back. Your glasses start to slip down your greasy, sweaty nose. You’re a mess. Everyone is appalled.

Column: UNC's respite of recovery

With 18,523 undergraduate students, we can assume that there are about 1,500-1,800 students who fit some criteria for a substance use disorder. Nearly half of them never seek appropriate treatment.

Viewpoints: Memes Connect Carolina

Who knew memes could mean so much more than raunchy laughs?  As I continue my years at Carolina, I hope to contribute to that conversation and dabble in meme creation myself.
