Survey studies UNC's hook-up culture

The Duke University student who created a PowerPoint presentation chronicling her sexual escapades has inspired more than witty banter. Four UNC students are currently conducting a study to explore the University’s hook-up culture in a more serious fashion. “In response to the Duke student’s PowerPoint we formed questions to try and elicit responses from UNC students so we could analyze their own hook-ups and evaluate their behavior,” said Lauren Tevelow, a senior and member of the group conducting the study, which is a project for the students’ COMM 350: Practices of Cultural Studies class.
