Faculty committee talks athletic issues

Days after returning from the NCAA hearing in Indianapolis, Chancellor Holden Thorp discussed implementing the changes to academic support for student athletes at Tuesday’s faculty athletics committee meeting.

UNC-Chapel Hill students, volunteers and new homeowners met on Sept. 18 at the Habitat for Humanity "Build a Block" Dedication in Phoenix Place neighborhood to celebrate the completion of ten new homes. The homes were championed by organizations such as the Ram's Club as well schools like the School of Information and Library Science and completed in a record-breaking academic year. Here, Danita Thomas, 49, originally of Buffalo NY, and her son Ernest Wright, 17, pose with their new home. Thomas has worked at UNC Hospitals sine 2006 and Wright attends Chapel Hill High School and hopes to be an architect, says Thomas.

UNC Build a Block celebrates success

It began as a PowerPoint on a rainy day, and ended on a bright Sunday in the form of 10 new homes for UNC employees. More than 100 students, faculty and community members gathered Sunday afternoon to dedicate the Build a Block project, organized by the UNC chapter of Habitat for Humanity.
