For the 18th consecutive year, UNC has been in the top five public universities according to US News. Here's a take on that:
"This is, after all, a trip through America, in all of its splendor and ugliness."
All our student leaders have a responsibility to do what is right, regardless of how “contentious” it may seem. Students have been subject to this type of complacency for long enough with our University administration and should not undergo it with their student leadership as well. I hope that the trend of vetoing progress for the sake of pleasantness does not continue.

"To reinstall the Confederate monument to any location on UNC’s campus is to herald for the nation and for the world that UNC is not a welcoming place for Black people."
