A chance for the Greek system to repair its image

|

Over the past year, this campus has seen the Greek system turned upside down by investigations, increased scrutiny, and negativity. The failures of the Greek system have been on display and the positives have been overshadowed. But in the midst of these negative occurrences, we as members of the Greek system have a unique opportunity to remember why we are here. This is a chance for us to revert to the values of friendship, brotherhood, sisterhood and philanthropy that define the creeds and mantras we teach.

Information on sexual assault should be reviewed

|

Project Dinah thanks the DTH for Tuesday’s coverage of a crucial issue facing all students, not just incoming first-years: sexual assault at Carolina. In our community, men and women of all gender identities have survived sexual and interpersonal violence. Bottom line: violence affects us all.

Abortion coverage should be included in UNC plan

|

In response to the editorial “Explain abortion money” (Aug. 31), where’s the choice in the abortion exemption? The real choice is when a woman has the peace of mind knowing she has access to all of her options — abortion with coverage or carrying the pregnancy to term — when in a difficult situation.

One shirt, two shirt, red shirt, blue shirt

|

I have enough T-shirts. Long-sleeve, short-sleeve. White tee, tall tee. Turtleneck, V-neck. You name it, I’ve got it in at least one color. I definitely do not need any more. And this is why I’m tired of the charity 5k races. Is there really no other way to galvanize the support of a group of people toward a specific cause? I’ve got to think there is.

ConnectCarolina is a new system and will improve

|

ConnectCarolina’s “inaugural season” has provided both benefits and challenges for the campus community. ConnectCarolina is a mammoth project both in scope and effort. On the positive side, students can now apply to Carolina, register for classes, receive financial aid and pay tuition online all in one place. The system has brought about major improvements including packaging financial aid faster than ever before, even with the last-minute tuition change, and providing convenient and efficient online bill payment.

College athletes under pressure make mistakes

|

I agree with whatever actions the University is going to take against the athletes in question regarding academic fraud. The University provides the means for these players to have an education and showcase their talents, so the university is rightfully in control of their future. That said, the fury from students against the football program is overkill.

Do the math: Budget cuts require we give online methods a chance

|

The math department’s decision to replace human graders with a computerized grading system is a sound one, and it illustrates an important lesson for students as we face budget cut-induced changes to our classroom experience: Replacing traditional teaching methods with computerized ones does not necessarily mean forfeiting quality.

Bush advisor Karl Rove to speak at Memorial Hall

|

The continued ineptness and failures of the current administration force one to reconsider the arguments of a movement whose obituary was written and rewritten by pundits across the spectrum. Conservatism is not dead, as one can deduce from polls indicating a Republican takeover of the U.S. House and, potentially, even the U.S. Senate.

UNC football program tarnished Tar Heel record

|

This letter is to the entire UNC football program. We have enjoyed watching the program grow over the past few years and enjoyed the ride you have taken us on. However, we as a student body and faculty are hurt by what has transpired over the past few months with the NCAA inquiries.
