 The North Carolina men’s basketball team gathers in a huddle Thursday. UNC will take on Providence today in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

Senior Writer
SAN ANTONIO — Even after the  bus had pulled up to the doors of the  AT&T Center Thursday afternoon, the North Carolina basketball team didn’t  want to unload.They had a schedule to stick to, an afternoon of preparing for their date  with 11th-seeded Providence as dic-tated by the NCAA.But schedules be damned.The satellite-enabled, in-bus tele- vision was turned to the matchup  between Harvard and Cincinnati. And despite their obligations, the play-ers refused to leave until No. 12-seed Harvard completed its upset of fifth-seed Cincinnati.It was a sobering reminder that at the end of the day, the seeds are sim-ply numbers, often devoid of any true  value.“We were just on the bus and saw Cincinnati lose to Harvard, and they  were a No. 5 seed and Harvard was a 12,” J.P. Tokoto said. “It’s basically, anything could happen, you see it happening in front of you. “

UNC system faces ACA costs
 Head over to dailytarheel.com for a photo gallery of UNC’s practice day in San Antonio.
But the gravity of their situation didn’t appear to phase the sixth-seeded Tar Heels (23-9). After exiting the bus, the group was lighthearted. Wade Moody donned a green wig and tinted glasses in the locker room and took on the role of interviewing his teammates.Brice Johnson sang his own ren-dition of Beyonce’s “Single Ladies.” Kennedy Meeks got down on his hands and knees in an attempt to distract Marcus Paige during inter- views.Out on the court, others playfully took jabs at each other and attempt-ed wacky shots during the open practice before coach Roy Williams chided his players to take ‘game-like’ shots.It was a celebratory atmosphere, reminiscent of the mood during the

 As the Affordable Care Act con-tinues to roll out, the UNC system is facing an up to $47 million increase in costs associated with insuring a growing number of employees, caus-ing officials to consider trimming employee hours or weighing less expensive health care plans.Beginning in January 2015, the UNC system will have to provide insurance coverage for the 8,600 employees who work 30 hours a week,  but are not currently covered by the state insurance plan, said Marty Kotis, a member of the Board of Governors.Those employees include gradu-ate teaching assistants, student employees, postdoctoral employees, temporary or visiting faculty and library and administrative staff.But the $47 million cost is a maximum amount calculated using the $5,452 price of insuring an employee, said Charlie Perusse, chief operating officer for the system. The actual cost will likely be much lower.“There’s a lot we don’t know. Number one, the feds are still adjusting guidelines and param-eters. We could have some sets or subsets of employees that would be exempted from coverage,” he said.Kotis said the system’s General  Administration has considered dif-ferent options to combat the high cost, including shifting costs from other areas, seeking less expen-sive health coverage plans, cutting employee hours and increasing rev-enue to the system — which could include tuition increases.Perusse said the campuses could manage employee costs more effi-ciently to reduce the total number of employees who need to be insured.“Do you need someone always at 30 hours a week, or could they be a little less and still provide the same service?” he said.
Theater management minor to begin in the fall

Department works on gender inclusivity 
UNC’s department of philosophy focuses on including more women.
By Sarah Niss
Senior Writer
 While some philosophy depart-ments nationwide are wracked with scandal and gender issues, UNC is  working to ensure inclusivity.More than 650 people have signed a petition to the American Philosophical Association request-ing a code of conduct for philoso-phy professors, following a string of sexual harassment accusations against professors at universities such as Northwestern University and the University of Colorado at Boulder.“Twenty years ago this stuff would have been swept under the rug,” said UNC graduate student Jennifer Kling. “There is a cultural problem in the department — but it’s in the process of changing.”The field faces a longstanding prob-lem of gender representation, and phi-losophers want to understand why.“Philosophy has historically been the domain of middle-upper class  white men,” Kling said. “We have  very few women and few persons of color in the profession. About 23 percent of tenure-track faculty in philosophy departments nationwide are women, according to the association’s Committee on the Status of Women. UNC has more female philosophy professors and an equal number of men and women pursuing graduate degrees.“No other department in the top 30 or 40 has anything remotely like that,” said philosophy chairman Marc Lange.UNC faces problems at the under-graduate level, where the majority of

The majority of students who come to the department of dramat-ic art intend on acting, but soon there will be another option off the main stage.Catering to the students interest-ed in the business side of the theater industry, the new theater manage-ment minor will start up in the fall.Hannah Grannemann, the managing director at PlayMakers Repertory Company and lecturer in the dramatic art department, had  been teaching theater management classes for two years when she decid-ed to compile courses into a minor.“We’ve had theater management courses in the catalogue for a long time,” Grannemann said. “It seemed to me a good idea to expand our offerings and grow the department.”She said putting together a minor track was quite easy, and she started working on it last summer.Dramatic art classes from the past are resurfacing, being created and revamped, but the addition of the theater management minor doesn’t require any additional funds or faculty.Grannemann said she will be teaching DRAM 279, a new class called “Introduction to Theater Management,” in the fall. An exist-ing class, DRAM 193, “Production Practicum,” is being given a man-agement track, DRAM 491 is resur-facing and DRAM 493 is being rei-magined for theater management.“There are four courses that make up the minor track, but we

also have cross-listed courses in  business in economics,” she said.The new classes will be avail-able in time for next semester’s registration period, and students can declare a theater management minor in the fallas well. Classes in theater management are not lim-ited to dramatic art majors.“This is a great next step for the department, and it can attract stu-dents who are interested in the arts  but don’t necessarily want to be per-

hen someone shafts you, don’t get mad — get clever.  When Edd Joseph of Bristol, England, never received a PlayStation 3 game console after he shelled out about $160 through an electronic money transfer, he said he got back at the seller by sending him long passages from Shakespeare in a continuous stream of text messages.  According to the Bristol Post, Shakespeare’s 37 works would mean 29,305 texts given the 160-character restriction. Joseph said he’s received a few “abusive messages” after he began the process, meaning his evil plan must be working — at least until he gets  blocked, but that’s not stopping him. He says he’s going to keep at it.

 ASG to get new o∞cers
By Paul Kushner
Staff Writer
New leaders and fresh internal reforms are on the agenda for this weekend’s UNC-system  Association of Student Governments meeting at  Winston-Salem State University. Alex Parker, student body president of N.C. State University, and Leigh Whittaker, UNC- Asheville’s student body president, are running unopposed for president and vice president. ASG, which is funded by a $1 annual student fee, is a student advocacy organization composed of delegates from all 17 UNC-system schools.UNC-CH’s delegate to ASG, Student Congress Speaker Connor Brady, who nomi-nated the two candidates, expressed support for them as well as the reform resolutions.“I believe that Alex and Leigh will plan advo-cacy efforts, empower students from all over North Carolina and be a part of a new direction for an organization that so far has been a hin-drance to real progress,” Brady said. “Alex cur-rently represents a large university, and Leigh a small one. That mix will ensure that no school in our system is forgotten and all voices will be  brought to the table. Andrew Powell, UNC-CH’s student body pres-ident-elect, does not plan to attend this week-end’s meeting because he has not yet taken office.But Powell said he is excited to work with  ASG, particularly with its new leaders.“I’ve heard great things about the candidates,he said. “I know that they’ll do a good job of coming together and representing students all across the state.”One reform resolution would authorize ASG to purchase iClickers to track how delegates  vote, which would be posted online for public access — a move Brady supports. Another resolution would support changing UNC-system student identification cards to potentially meet higher standards at the polls after North Carolina’s voter ID law banned col-lege IDs at the voting booth.“I recognize that this is an opportunity to ensure that students have the proper identifica-tion to vote prior to the enactment of the voter identification law,” Brady said.But ASG President Robert Nunnery remains uncertain of the resolution’s success.“We are trying to move towards making our campus IDs more accountable and more offi-cial,” he said. “The goal is to eventually petition the legislature to include college IDs as permis-sible IDs in the new voter ID law. Another resolution would request that the State Board of Elections reconsider  Watauga County Board of Elections’ decision to move early voting off of Appalachian State University’s campus.

Their acronym may be CIA, but the Carolina Irish Association does not tap secrets — they tap their feet to tunes.The Carolina Irish Association’s spring showcase on Sunday will feature tra-ditional Irish dances and a showdown  with the Carolina Tap Ensemble. It is the organization’s first showcase, following its efforts to expand its presence on campus this year.“Most people don’t know what Irish dance is and we want to show people what it is,” said sophomore Olivia DeSena, the group’s marketing and publicity department officer.“It’s very athletic and a really cool form of dance.”Many of the dancers in the club are highly experienced in Irish dancing and the pieces for the showcase are all student-choreographed by the group members.“A lot of our dancers have competed at national and regional levels, and one of the girls placed at the world championships and  won nationals one year,” DeSena said.“We have a wide variety of talent.”The Carolina Tap Ensemble was invited to perform in the Carolina Irish  Association’s showcase because tap dancing shares similar roots with Irish dancing.“We make similar sounds, we just make different moves,” DeSena said. “We wanted to play with that.In addition to infusing tap dance with Irish dance, the showcase will also add a modern twist to the traditional dance — by dancing along to the James Bond theme song.“I just really like that we’re doing tradi-tional music as well as really contemporary things,” said junior Halie Reed, co-president of the Carolina Irish Association. “Our initials go with CIA, so I figured, let’s play on that, and we chose ‘James Bond.’”Beginners will also be performing in the showcase. This is the first time the organi-zation has accepted beginners and offered free lessons in Irish dancing.“We really wanted to bring more people,” Reed said. “We wanted more structure and a more cohesive as well as fun group.”Both DeSena and Reed said there is a general curiosity surrounding Irish dance on campus.
The Carolina Irish Association will hold a dance show 
7 p.m. Sunday
Great Hall, Student Union
“I actually choreographed a piece for Blank Canvas last semester with an Irish style dance, and people were saying it’s so unique and they liked it,” Desena said. “So hopefully people will see it and like it, and they can join us as beginners or just learn a bit more about Irish dance.”Sophomore Olivia Barnes has practiced Irish dancing since she was young.“I took lessons since I was little, but I stopped when I got to high school because I  was too busy,” she said. “I picked it up again here and it’s exciting.”Barnes will be performing in eight out of 10 dances.“Just getting back into dance brings back a lot of memories when I was a kid,” she said.“I think all of us have a little bit of Irish in us, somewhere.”
The president and vice president will be elected this weekend.

UNC has a growing, diverse group of sororities that rep-resent different ethnic, extra-curricular and socioeconomic  backgrounds.But interest in these orga-nizations varies greatly, with some Greek organizations see-ing more growth than others.Brittney Bahlman, coor-dinator of the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life and Community Involvement, said in 2013, 760 women par-ticipated in the Panhellenic  Association’s fall recruitment,  which was about 35 more than in 2012. She said this formal recruitment, held each fall, has experienced an average growth of between 30 and 50 women each year.“Our enrollment of women in the University is not grow-ing, which means that there is a growing interest among female students,” Bahlman said.Bahlman said in fall 2013, the Panhellenic Association issued about 500 bids. Each sorority was given a minimum quota of 48 new members, and nine of the 10 sororities in the association achieved it.“Nationally, there’s a grow -ing interest in being a part of Greek life,” said junior Jamison Kies, who is president of Alpha Chi Omega. “People see it as a one stop shop for everything  you can do in college.Junior Meredith Babb, vice president of recruitment for the Panhellenic Association, said growth in the Panhellenic community is important to her.“The more people who are involved in Greek life, the big-ger impact we can have on the greater Carolina and Chapel Hill community.”Bahlman also said that the diversity found in the two councils beyond the Panhellenic council is highly  valued, as well.“I think that a lot of the diversity of the University is reflected in the diversity of our sorority community,” Bahlman said.But sororities in the Greek  Alliance Council, which was created in 2000 and now includes 14 multicultural and interest-based sororities and fraternities, have found growth to be difficult.“Small chapter numbers and difficulty spreading our name on campus is something that my sorority, as well as (the Greek Alliance Council) has been suffering in the past couple of years,” said senior Jasmine Kreig, president of Theta Nu Xi, which has only a few members. “Many chapters in our council have very small chapters and encounter the same difficulties with recruit-ment that we do.”Despite the varied meth-ods of recruitment and level of interest garnered, women across the different councils agreed that there are many  benefits to sorority life.Babb said she thinks soror-ity life opens the door to many opportunities on campus.“At Carolina, joining a soror-ity is not only a way to gain a home away from home, but a  way to become a better woman through friendships, leadership opportunities, scholarship, social activities and philan-thropic projects.”
Certain sororities have seen a big jump in recruitment.
UNC sorority rush grows in popularity

UNC students will do anything for free pizza.Early Thursday morning, more than 50 people lined up outside of Old Chicago Pizza and Taproom in down-town Chapel Hill in the hopes of win-ning a year of free pizza. Some people even camped out overnight.“I think there were about a dozen people who did that,” said Chris Beckler, vice president of operations for CraftWorks Restaurants and Breweries, Inc., the company that owns the Chapel Hill location of the pizza place.Old Chicago, the newest addition to the 140 West development on Franklin Street, gave away books of 12 free pizza coupons to the first 76 people in line at their grand opening celebration Thursday morning.The 76 signifies the restaurant’s opening almost 40 years ago in 1976.Beckler said security guards for the development had to kick the camp-ers out around midnight, but they returned at 3 a.m.Sarah Headley, a junior journalism and political science major and a staff  writer at The Daily Tar Heel, was one of the lucky few to receive the prize, though she did not camp out.“I got there around 9 a.m.,” she said. “I was 42 or 43.”Headley said there were a lot of people there waiting for the grand opening to start, but the group wasn’t organized.“There was no rhyme or reason to how it was set up,” she said. “One of the guys in line took it upon himself to rip up a sheet of paper and  write numbers one through 76 on them.”The event also included a free-throw contest in which UNC intramural bas-ketball players and “local celebrities” took turns shooting. For each basket scored, Old Chicago donated $76 to Farmer Foodshare, a nonprofit orga-nization that collects extra food from farmers markets and gives it to people in need.In the afternoon, pizza and craft  beer samples were offered in exchange for a $2 donation to the organization.Beckler estimated that nearly $2,000 was raised in total on Thursday. He said another $3,500  was raised for the organization at a friends and family event on March 8 and 9.Beth Miller, a Farmer Foodshare  volunteer who was representing her organization at the event, said the money will go a long way.Miller said the organization donates food to local charities, like the Inter-Faith Council for Social Service’s shel-ters and food pantries, which distrib-ute it to people in need.“We need money,” she said. “It’s a  way to get fresh food to people who normally can’t get fresh food.”This is the first Old Chicago Pizza and Taproom location in the Carolinas. Beckler said his company is look-ing into expanding further into the Carolinas in the near future.
