Global Issues Draw Students to UNC

The multitude of non-UNC students on campus last Saturday was not limited to N.C. State football fans. More than 14 out-of-state students from as far as Florida made lengthy drives to spend the weekend at the Students United for a Responsible Global Environment conference held on campus. Although one student said he was disappointed with the one-sided nature of the conference, most of these visitors said they were pleased with the trip. "(The trip) was well worth it," said Claire Rumore, a senior sociology and Spanish major from Auburn University in Alabama.

Students Find They Can Go Home Again

Battling long lines in Lenoir Dining Hall, fighting for an open washing machine in residence hall basements and paying for expensive telephone calls home aren't concerns for UNC students who hail from Chapel Hill. Homemade meals, free laundry facilities and in-person conversations with family members are all options for local students. Three hundred and ninety-seven undergraduates from area high schools are attending a university a hop, skip and a jump away from home. And students say there are advantages and disadvantages to remaining in town for college.

Mistakes Prove Costly in UNC Loss

The mistakes were supposed to be behind the North Carolina football team after its week off leading up to Saturday. They weren't. The Tar Heels, who felt as though they gave Georgia Tech a win two weeks ago at Kenan Stadium, came back and did the same thing for N.C. State. The Wolfpack's high-powered passing game managed just 221 yards, but the team still beat UNC - for the first time in eight tries - 38-20 before 59,000 fans at Kenan Stadium. "We're not worried about the statistics," said N.C.

Fans Pack Carmichael for Midnight Madness

"Midnight With Matt and the Tar Heels" was enjoyable for everyone involved. The crowd at Carmichael Auditorium. The North Carolina men's basketball team. And especially Matt. North Carolina rang in the new basketball year on Friday night - and Saturday morning - with a variety of contests and activities to excite Tar Heel fans. Those fans also got to see new coach Matt Doherty dust off his playing skills. "I thought things went great, from my perspective," Doherty said.

SportsSaturday - A Dream Come True

Jeff Reed couldn't have expected his dream to unfold so perfectly. Not after getting such a late start. Not after spending his first few years at North Carolina watching games on television that his teammates were playing in hundreds of miles from Chapel Hill. Reed rarely told people about his dream - the chances of it coming true were slim. But that's what makes Reed's patient ascent from a little-known walk-on to one of the ACC's best kickers so special. "I had a dream, but I wouldn't ever say it." Reed said.

The historic brick buildings and venerable trees served as an ideal background for University Day, a celebration of the past that also looks toward the future. A commemoration of the laying of Old East Residence Hall's cornerstone, the 124th annual University Day featured the installation of Chancellor James Moeser, numerous speeches from prominent leaders and customary traditions.

CHUMS Band Together for Fest

The Chapel Hill Underground Music Society, otherwise known as CHUMS, is really just that - a couple of guys who live on the same hall in Old West and like the same kind of music. "We figured out that if we started a club, we could take advantage of University resources," said senior Jeff Bollinger, who, with junior Ben Rogerson, helped CHUMS become an official student organization last spring. CHUMS is sponsoring its first event tonight, an eight-band benefit festival at Go! Studios featuring hard-core rock acts.

Carrboro Cops Should Draft Fiscal Wish List

There might as well be a "Help Wanted" sign on the door to the Carrboro police station. The town not only has fewer full-time employees in its police department per resident than other towns of the same size; it also can't seem to fill the positions it does have in its budget. According to a study compiled by the Mooresville Police Department, to which most of the departments in the state contributed data, Carrboro's 1999 budget provided for 37 full-time employees and had a population of 15,137. That's one employee for every 409 residents.
