The Daily Tar Heel


Satire: Tips for returning from your semester abroad


"As I would soon explain to friends, family, or anyone who would listen, my experience abroad was a blur of new faces and Vueling seat buckles. It was that first bite of patatas bravas, the time I passed the cathedral while a man in a scarf serenaded the square with something that felt like a love song."


Column: Why the USWNT’s World Cup loss means progress


"The USWNT’s failure to secure another title can easily be written off as a massive coaching failure and a wavering team dynamic, but we’re missing an important variable here. We are not giving the United States’ opponents, and all of the other teams in the tournament, enough credit."

Office DJ: What The Daily Tar Heel sounded like this summer


"Together, this playlist encapsulates a summer's worth of muggy afternoons, walks around campus, rounds of Geoguessr and whiteboard drawings. Every time I get nostalgic about slideshow nights, beer cheese or arguments about Filet-o-Fishes, I know this playlist will bring me right back to summer at The Daily Tar Heel."


Column: Why you should get to know your local student journalist


"We're students whose writing and editing and designing and photographing makes up one of the best student newspapers in the country, and the main print newspaper remaining in Orange County. And we hope to lay the foundations for the next generation of news. So, yeah – support student journalism."


Farewell Column: My complicated relationship with the DTH


"The very structure of The Daily Tar Heel makes it hard to actually be part of this newsroom if you don’t have the financial stability to handle below-average pay for the sake of altruistic, hard-earned journalism experience. I can count on one hand the amount of DTH editors over my two years that could relate to my situation."


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."
