I’m not sure how much we’ll all have to remember from class. If you’re pre-med, definitely remember everything. You might be elbow deep in me at some point and that’s no time to forget anatomy class.
As important as the study of math and sciences is, it is far from a complete education in any sense of the word.

At a Tuesday night meeting, the Carrboro Board of Aldermen approved an ordinance that could make it easier to reconcile claims of illegitimate towing within the town.
Northside residents took time off from planning for the future to try to improve the present at Tuesday’s Good Neighborhood Initiative Block Party, an effort to build the relationship between student and non-student residents in Northside.
