How stripping helped one UNC student pay her drug citation fees

After being caught with under an ounce of marijuana, one student said she turned to stripping to cover the hundreds of dollars in fees and court costs.  “My friends were stripping at a club, and you can make a lot of money doing that," she said. "So, I did it to make the money I needed.” In one night, she earned all the money to pay for her drug citation. It was her first time stripping, but it wouldn’t be her last.

'What a mess. Won’t be texting': More messages from UNC post-Silent Sam revealed

On Friday, WRAL released texts and emails exchanged between UNC faculty and administration before and shortly after Confederate monument Silent Sam fell.  In the  messages, faculty and administration discussed what was happening at the protest, expressed shock when it was pulled down and coordinated media strategy. They also discussed their messaging in reaction to the demonstration, with some saying that they should be clear in expressing how wrong it was.  In the aftermath, messages were also exchanged about student government, and their subsequent response to monument's toppling.
