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.

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
“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. “

The system will incur
additional costs of up
to $47 million.

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.

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
“I hope they understand
that the arts can be
looked at as an art form
and as a business.”
Adam Versenyi,
department of dramatic art chairman
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-

ASG to
get new
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
“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
Time: 7 p.m. Sunday
Location: 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
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
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.”

seen a big jump in

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
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
“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
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.

Cameron Overstreet is not
a prototypical pole-vaulter.
At just 5-foot-5 and a half
inches, the junior on the
North Carolina track and
field team is a few inches
short of what coaches look for
in an ideal vaulter.
But Josh Langley, the
vaulting coach for UNC,
couldn’t help but notice how
good she was.
“Wow, she’s kinda short for
how good she is,” he said to
himself when he first met her.
She won’t be growing any-
time soon — she has been the
same height since seventh
grade. And now that her third
indoor season at UNC has
come to a conclusion and the
outdoor season officially kicks
off today, she accepts there is
nothing she can do about her
height. But her coaches say she
has certain intangible qualities
that all coaches seek. The same
words pop up, over and over.
Dedicated. Determined.
Motivated. Intelligent.
While the first three are
hard to demonstrate on
paper, Overstreet leaves little
doubt that she is just as much
student as she is athlete. After
graduating among the top 10
in her high school class, she
came to UNC and continued
to excel in the classroom.
ACC Honor Roll — twice.
U.S. Track & Field And Cross
Country Coaches Association
All-Academic honors — twice.
Dean’s List — every semester.
Kyle Bishop, Overstreet’s
high school vaulting coach
in Virginia, met her through
some of the girls on his team
who were also her friends. She
was just an eighth-grade gym-
nast and he knew immediately
he wanted her on his team.
“That day, I said, ‘She’s
going to be a state champion,’”
Bishop said. “And her (gym-
nastics) coach looks at me and
says, ‘Yeah, in gymnastics.’”
After that, the two coaches
fought for her time. Eventually,
Bishop and pole-vaulting won
her heart, and soon enough,
Overstreet was a state pole-
vaulting champion.
“She’s a scrapper,” Bishop
said. “She might not be the
greatest physical specimen out
there, but she’s the kid that
you can count on. When her
back’s to the wall, she’s going
to go as hard as she can.”
While few who know her will
argue there’s a better competi-
tor, effort is just one element of
the equation. Three weeks ago,
at the ACC Indoor Track and
Field Championships, the other
elements weren’t working.
On her final attempt at
13-11 1/4 she fell millimeters
shy, barely clipping the bar.
Cameron Overstreet, a junior from Mechanicsville, Va., is a pole vaulter for UNC. She recently missed the NCAA Championships for the indoor season but returns to outdoor competition today.
Had she cleared it, she would
have set a new personal
record. Instead, she was elim-
inated from the competition
— her chances of advancing
to the NCAA Indoor National
Championships crushed and
her indoor season ended.
“I just knocked it off with
my thigh,” she said, stressing
the “just.”
But Overstreet knows she
can use the early finish as fuel.
“You’ve got to look at vault-
ing as a four-year commit-
ment,” she said. “If you have
one season where you don’t
have all your dreams come
true, then it’s OK ... as long as
you come back in a strong way.”
Langley has no doubt
that Overstreet will return
for the outdoor season with
a vengeance. While he said
not making the National
Championships hurt at first, it
will add an entirely new level
of motivation to her approach.
And ultimately, it will be her
competition that suffers.
“She already is determined,
she’s already dedicated, but
I think you’re going to see a
whole different animal, come
outdoor season,” Langley said.
“Cameron Overstreet with
something to prove, that’s dan-
gerous for the rest of the ACC.”
Though the ACC
Championships might be a
sore topic for Overstreet, one
UNC vaulter set a new career
best that day in Clemson,
S.C. Freshman Amanda
Benninghoff tied for fifth
place with a jump of 12-11
1/2, and credited Overstreet
— the only non-freshman
female vaulter — for guiding
her early in the season.
“Cam was like our mom on
the team, leading us through
the workouts in the fall,”
Benninghoff said.
Fellow freshman Caroline
Brailsford echoed Benninghoff.
“She has this dedication
about her that’s really admi-
rable,” Brailsford said. “She
eats so well, she studies really
hard, she takes really good
care of her body in training.”
“She’s just the perfect role
As a freshman, Overstreet
had then-sophomore Sandi
Morris to look up to and train
with. After that season, Morris,
who holds the UNC indoor
and outdoor women’s pole
vault records, transferred to
Arkansas. Overstreet was left
as the tem’s only female vaulter.
Langley said she constantly
pestered him to recruit some
vaulters for her to train with,
so when he brought in a crop
of freshmen this season,
Overstreet was overwhelmed.
“She has really done an
outstanding job of taking
them under her wing and
showing them the ropes,”
Langley said. “It helps me a
lot because I don’t have to go
through the whole processes
of the small things.”
Brailsford, Benninghoff and
Langley all credit Overstreet
for bringing the vaulters
together. Before the first meet
of the indoor season, she
wrote each vaulter a letter,
praising their accomplish-
ments and encouraging them
to keep striving to be better.
Her influence on the
impressionable freshmen
became noticeable almost
immediately, and soon
enough, the rookies had
returned the favor.
A few days before the ACC
Championships, Overstreet
went to Virginia Tech for an
additional chance to record
a performance that would
qualify her for the National
She was the only member
of the team who went — only
Langley accompanied her —
but the other vaulters were
there in spirit, rooting on their
mentor. Each freshman vault-
er, including the men, wrote
Overstreet a letter of their
own, hoping to boost her con-
fidence enough to propel her
to the NCAA Championships.
Overstreet was touched by
the letters, which she said con-
gratulated her for what she had
already accomplished. Though
she ultimately came up short,
the letters helped remove some
of the initial stress.
“It was just really nice to
hear, because I’m kind of hard
on myself,” she said. “It’s kind
of weird to think that at the
end of the day, even though
you gave it your best effort, it
still wasn’t enough.”
Though it wasn’t enough
this time, Overstreet
did make the National
Championships last year, and
still has the outdoor season
this year, as well as the indoor
and outdoor seasons next
year, to reach new heights.
She and Langley have
already begun working on ways
she can improve and changes
she needs to make, including
moving five inches up to a
14-foot pole, but she said her
perspective has changed after
the indoor season.
“Just enjoy the journey
instead of just basing it on the
outcome,” she said. “That’s
something I’ve learned.”
“You can’t just be focused
on the outcome, you have to
enjoy the whole package.”
The pole vaulter has
a strong presence on
and off the field.

Expectations are high
entering the 2014 outdoor
track season, and North
Carolina track and field ath-
letes are hungry.
Following a successful
indoor season, which ended
less than a week ago, the
outdoor team is looking to
perform even better in the
upcoming season.
The team’s first outdoor
meet of the year, the Carolina
Relays, will start tonight at 5
p.m. and last through the day
Saturday at the Belk Track.
“It’s our first meet of the
year, so we’re going into it
optimistic, but it’s really just a
chance to get out and stretch
our legs outside,” said head
track and field coach Harlis
As the team preps for the
meet, some team members
view the meet as an opportu-
nity to see where they stand
after a long winter.
“I think our kids are anx-
ious to compete outdoors,”
said Meaders.
“The kids that haven’t had
a chance to compete yet, the
outdoor only events, discus
throw, javelin throw, 400
meter hurdles, this will be
their first attempt to do their
primary event.”
The team is coming off
a successful indoor season,
during which the men’s
team placed second at the
ACC Indoor Championships
and sent 11 competitors to
the NCAA Indoor National
“I think the kids that saw
their teammates qualify for
national championships, now
they’re excited,” Meaders said.

The No. 6 North Carolina
men’s lacrosse team might be
feeling a little bit of deja vu
heading into its game against
top-ranked Maryland in
Kenan Stadium this Saturday.
The team found itself in a
nearly identical situation last
Facing the top-ranked
Terrapins, questions surround-
ed the direction the Tar Heels’
season was headed. This game
would either be a phenomenal
addition to UNC’s tournament
resume or a detrimental loss in
the toughest conference in the
But the Tar Heels won that
game a year ago — and didn’t
lose again after that until the
NCAA tournament.
It was the turning point of
their season.
“Last year, we were in a
pickle,” coach Joe Breschi
said. “We had three losses so
you’re either coming out of
there .500 or with a nice win
under your belt.”
And this season with the
addition of Notre Dame and
Syracuse to the ACC and a
new tournament format, a
loss would be more injurious
to UNC’s title chances than it
Tar Heels to face top-ranked Terrapins
out of the penalty box have put
UNC in trouble against teams
like Notre Dame, Princeton
and even Harvard.
A UNC player found him-
self in the penalty box fifteen
times in those three games
resulting in seven goals that
resulted in giving up double-
digit goals and even a loss
against the Irish.
“I feel like we’re playing
pretty well (in) six-on-six
defense,” Creighton said. “As
long as we can prevent early
offense and transition oppor-
tunities and stay out of the
penalty box I think we can be
pretty successful.”
It might seem like the pres-
sure’s on for the Tar Heels,
but don’t tell Breschi that.
He’s excited for the take on
the Terrapins.
“(Whenever) you play
the number one team, the
pressure’s more on them,”
Breschi said. “Anytime you
get a chance to play the num-
ber one team specifically in
Kenan Stadium on a beautiful
day in Chapel Hill it’s a great
And it’s that optimism that
oozes from Breschi that may
very well lead to UNC experi-
encing more deja vu at the end
of the weekend — with a win.

may have been in the past.
Though the ACC has six
teams, only four will play in
the conference tournament at
the end of the season. The two
teams with the worst records
will get a chance to play a
consolation game against each
other, they will not get a chance
at the ACC title.
With an 0-2 record already
in the ACC off of two hotly
contested one-goal losses
against the newly added
Fighting Irish and rival Duke,
the Tar Heels have put them-
selves in a vulnerable position
— one that could see them
out of the tournament.
Senior captain Ryan
Creighton isn’t even thinking
about that though.
“As a captain and a leader
of the team, it’s all about the
next game,” Creighton said.
“I don’t think we’re too con-
cerned about that.”
If the Tar Heels are going
to prevent that fate, one that
could keep them from having
the chance to even defend
their 2013 ACC title, it will
start with the defense.
While in the first three
games of the season the Tar
Heels made light work of
severely overmatched teams,
the team started to struggle
once it began facing ranked
Although the defense boasts
strong, athletic players like

“Hopefully we’ ll have double
that number by the time the
outdoor championship rolls
around in June.”
Houston Summers, a soph-
omore javelin thrower, said
the cross country and indoor
track seasons set the bar high
for the outdoor track season.
“We’re extremely excited,”
he said. “We’re a stronger
outdoor team. I really believe
that we have a chance to win
ACCs, and as a whole, it’s
kind of sparked this energy
and belief that we are defi-
nitely on the right track.”
Summers, who barely
missed qualifying for outdoor
NCAA Nationals last spring,
said thinking about how close
he came to doing so increased
his drive during the off-
“Practice has been very
encouraging lately. I feel
stronger and more experi-
enced this year,” he said.

UNC Libraries celebrates 7 million books
By Deborah Harris
Staff Writer
Not every library gets to
celebrate its millionth book.
On Thursday, UNC had
that opportunity for the sev-
enth time.
Chancellor Carol Folt
accepted the 7 millionth
addition to the Wilson
Library collection in a cer-
emony in the Nelson Mandela
Auditorium of the FedEx
Global Education Center.
“I believe everyone in here
believes that the library is the
heart of a university,” Folt said.
“We are obligated to keep
the library alive.”
The book, donated by
The John Wesley and Anna
Hodgin Hanes Foundation,
contains Latin poetry that
was written by Juan Latino,
a native of Spain of African
descent, more than 400 years
The foundation has given
the University a book each

Commissioners are helping
volunteers deliver meals to

Community Champions
Week is part of a national
campaign to raise awareness
for senior hunger and encour-
age the local community to
take action.
The Chapel Hill-Carrboro
division of Meals on Wheels
has provided personally-
delivered meals to home-
bound and disabled individu-
als in the area for more than
40 years.
“We think of Chapel Hill as
affluent and well-educated,

both existing collections and
multiple academic disciplines.
Richard Szary, associate
university librarian for special
collections, said the ceremony

because of its intersectional
Funke said the acquisition
of the book relating to the
African Diaspora is also nota-
ble, marking the 50th anni-
versary of the Civil Rights Act
of 1964.
“Because we are really the
major research library in
the southeast, we are always
actively acquiring this mate-
rial — interestingly enough,
even when (North Carolina)
was still segregated,” she said.
“This places UNC in the top
rank of research universities.”
As of fall 2012, UNC has
the 22nd largest library
in the nation, according
to the American Library
Funke said UNC Libraries is
one of only 21 university librar-
ies to hold more than 7 million
books in North America. She
added that it was one of very
few libraries that has a copy of
Latino’s book.
Chancellor Carol Folt
accepted the book on
Thursday night.
Six officials are
taking part in Meals
on Wheels.
“We think of Chapel Hill as affluent and well-
educated, but there is still a lot of need here.”

executive director of the Chapel Hill division of Meals on Wheels

She said the elected offi-
cial volunteers got into cars
with complete strangers who
drove them through a deliv-
ery route, then accompanied
them to meet the recipients.
“It’s impressive that the
officials made time in their
busy schedules to do this,”
Yusko said. “They were
positive and personable so the
exercise was very easy for us.”
Kleinschmidt said he was
happy to check up on people
who would not have human
contact otherwise.
“It really calls into question
the myth about what Chapel
Hill is,” he said. “They think
we are wealthy and elite and
all of these horrible adjec-
tives, but we are also people
“Everyone in here
believes that the
library is the heart
of a university.”
Carol Folt,
the Study of the Middle East
and Muslim Civilizations, the
UNC African Studies Center
and the Center for European
Studies collaborated with the
FedEx Global Center to orga-
nize the celebration.
The book’s author is con-
sidered one of the first sub-
Saharan individuals to have
published a book of poems in
a Western language.
“Latino’s book is significant
as a first because it marks the
beginning of African Diaspora
literature in the West,” said
Claudia Funke, curator of the
rare books collection at Wilson
Special Collections Library, in
a press release.
The book will reside in
the Rare Books collection in
Wilson Library.
The reception ended with
the lecture, “Juan Latino
and the Dawn of Modernity”
by New York University his-
tory professor Michael A.
with great hearts for others
in need.”
Carrboro Alderman
Damon Seils said partici-
pating in the program is an
important way to publicize
what the organization is
doing and see the town
through a different lens.
“We saw a lot of people we
represent who are usually
homebound,” he said.
Commissioner Penny Rich
said serving with Meals on
Wheels is something close to
her heart.
“I’ve known about this for-
ever and I have often chipped
in and donated,” she said. “I
want to make sure people
never go hungry, and make
sure that people who wouldn’t
usually have a nice meal get
Insko, who has been a part
of Community Champions
Week once before, said Meals
on Wheels is sponsored by
state funds and falls under
the part of the state budget
that she works on.
“I was in parts of my dis-
trict that I haven’t seen in
years,” she said. “It’s a mag-
nificent program. It is com-
pletely run by volunteers, and
this is a way of showing that I
appreciate their work.

Fate of little house depends on review
A local couple has requested permission to tear down this historic house, located at 704 Gimghoul
Road, to build a new one in its place. The house was built in the 1920s.
By Morgan Swift
Staff Writer
It’s a case of one man’s trash
being another man’s treasure.
Bob Bacon and his family
lived at 704 Gimghoul Rd. for
more than 45 years.
“In my opinion it has
always been one of the best
looking houses on the street,”
Bacon said.
But now the home’s new
owners plan to demolish the
Bacon said Tanner
Hockand his wife bought
the house more than a year
ago with no indication they
planned to tear it down.
Bacon said the house, like
many in the neighborhood,
was built in the 1920s, giving
it a unique character.
Last week, the Hocks sub-
mitted a proposal to demol-
ish the house to the Historic
District Commission.
The commission voted
there was insufficient informa-
tion on the structural integrity
of the house and a decision
would have to be postponed.
If the commission members
agree the house is historically
significant, they can delay
demolition for only 365 days.
Benjamin Brodey, a mem-
ber of the comission, said
there was no question the
house has historical merit.
He said the house once
belonged to Ernest Rutherford
Groves and his wife Gladys
— both UNC professors.The
Groves’ published more than
20 books on psychology and
sociology that can still be
found in UNC Libraries today.
Brodey also said many
residents of the neighborhood
claimed Andy Griffith lived
in a stone cottage behind the
house during his time at UNC.
“We love the Gimghoul area,
and it’s our ultimate goal to
embrace the spirit of the neigh-
borhood and unfortunately in
this circumstance we are not
able to do that,” Hock said.
Brodey said neighbors have
come together and offered to
pay for an engineering report
to evaluate the home in hopes
of preserving it.
“It’s really nobody’s fault,”
Hock said. “The house is old
and it has been neglected.”
He said he thinks the design
for the new home will be a fit-
ting addition to the neighbor-
hood and flow better with the
side of the street it sits on.
Susan Lessard, Bacon’s
daughter, grew up in the house.
Lessard said the Chapel
Hill Preservation Society once
photographed the door to use
it on their poster.
“So back in those days,
people must’ve thought it was
worth photographing.”
height of the Tar Heels’
12-game winning streak.
But the reality of North
Carolina’s situation is much
more serious than the players
let on Thursday afternoon.
After experiencing
the finality of an early
ACC Tournament loss to
Pittsburgh, the Tar Heels
spent the interim readying for
their next batch of sudden-
death matches.
“Once we lost, that was
it,” senior Leslie McDonald
said. “We were kicked out of
the tournament. We had to
re-evaulate ourselves. We had
to understand that, ‘Hey, this
is a one and done deal. We
don’t want to be like how we
were in the ACC Tournament
where we was watching other
people play for the champion-
“I think it’s hit us. We
understand what’s at stake, so
we’ ll be ready.”
Despite closing the season
with a 12-2 streak after a 1-4
start in conference play
, the Tar Heels stumbled
through the final stretch of
A fire ignited by the prod-
ding of Williams and the
eruption of typically quiet
James Michael McAdoo
seemed to smoke out as North
Carolina barely scraped out
wins against Virginia Tech
and Notre Dame before los-
ing to Duke and Pittsburgh.
“During that stretch we got
kind of comfortable,” McAdoo
said. “We kind of got by by
not necessarily playing our
best, but obviously when we
play against better competi-
But Kotis said cutting
employee hours would come
at a high cost to the commu-
nity and the UNC system.
“In Chapel Hill, if everyone
has to reduce their employees’
hours to 30 hours or less,
you’ve got people who were
working 40 hours a week, and
suddenly they have to have a
second job,” he said.
He said if those employees
got a second job, they would
still work full-time hours every
week, but lack benefits from
either employer, forcing them
to buy their own insurance
under the Affordable Care Act.
There has not yet been an
official decision regarding
the cost by UNC-CH or the
General Administration.
“At this point, most of
the work regarding the
Affordable Care Act’s provi-
sions has been focused on the
entire UNC system. It is too
early right now to address
how the ACA will affect UNC-
Chapel Hill specifically,” said
Kathy Bryant, spokeswoman
for UNC-CH’s Office of
Human Resources.
The General Administration
should receive the final guide-
lines from the federal govern-
ment this summer, and then
officials will be able to develop
guidelines to send to campuses

formers,” Grannemann said.
Adam Versenyi, the dra-
matic art department chair-
man, said he hopes students
will see that there are a vari-
ety of avenues for studying
and working in the theater.
“Once more, it goes much
beyond what you see in perfor-
mance on the stage,” he said. “I
hope they understand that the
arts can be looked at as an art
form and as a business.”
Junior Rachel Davis took
Grannemann’s theater man-
agement class last semester
and said she’d like to take the
new practicum course that is
being offered in the fall.
“Often times, working in
theater means working on a
show here and a show there
with gaps in between, and
while it’s incredibly reward-
ing, it can also be incredibly
difficult,” she said.
“Working in theater man-
agement can offer you the
stability of a year-round job
with consistent income and
benefits, while still leaving
you time to work on shows.”
philosophy majors are male.
The department will host
a workshop in April to focus
on ways to attract and retain
undergraduate female majors.
It will feature philosophers,
students, psychologists who
have studied implicit bias, and
a UNC physics professor who
worked to increase female
representation, said philosophy
professor Mariska Leunissen.
Many have theories on why
women are underrepresented.
Some say being a minority
might deter women.
“It is true that when you
walk into a room with only
white men and you’re not
white or not male there’s a cer-
tain exclusion,” Leunissen said.
Kling said at conferences
she has felt like people expect
her to speak for all women.
“That can be threaten-
ing. That’s going to make me
quiet,” Kling said.
Others point to the com-
bative environment of philos-
ophy debate as unappealing.
“There’s a sense in which
philosophy is perceived as
aggressive. We debate and
discuss a lot, and those dis-
cussions are pretty hardcore,”
Leunissen said.
The lack of female philoso-
phers on syllabi could also
discourage engagement.
“It’s hard to come in as a
woman or person of color and
think, ‘I’m not reading any-
one like me,’” Kling said.
UNC added more women
to course syllabi in an attempt
to attract women, Lange said.
Professor Susan Wolf said
the climate of philosophy is dif-
ferent than it was 30 years ago.
“The women who were suc-
cessful, a generation above
me, were really tough women,”
she said. “They wouldn’t dress
in a way that called attention,
wouldn’t talk about family —
most didn’t have children.”
She said although the
numbers aren’t even, women
in philosophy today don’t
need to fit a male mold.
Sophomore Sophia Catanoso
declared her major in philoso-
phy because she was interested
in it, and didn’t know she was
in a minority until after.
“When I tell people I’m a
philosophy major they think
it’s crazy,” she said. “But I don’t
know why there aren’t more.”

Williams could point to as

the same fate as Cincinnati

bounced higher seeds boils

Thoughts on Israel
and abortion
Roderick Flannery says
Israel is not being threat-
ened by the rest of the
Middle East and implies
it is not the only Middle
Eastern democracy, but
then offers no support for
this assertion. I hope this is
because it was edited out of
the letter.
Every poll I have seen
puts the percentage of
Arabs that want Israel
destroyed in the range of
80 percent. Most of the
Middle Eastern countries
are still in a state of war
with Israel and have yet to
normalize relations.
Before the Arab spring,
Israel was certainly the only
democracy in the Middle
East, and as democracy in
Egypt is currently question-
able, it may still be.
As for abortion, as
someone who has studied
chemistry and biochemis-
try, I have certainly looked
at embryology textbooks,
but nothing in science
unequivocally says a fetus
is a human being and not
an organ/outgrowth of its

adgum” is usually
sufficient for Roy
He often censors himself
— at least in public. There
was that one time, though, in
2003, when his Kansas team
had just lost the national title
game and he was asked, rather
insensitively, if he had given
any thought to the North
Carolina coaching job.
“I could give a shit about
North Carolina right now,”
he answered, irritated, on
national T.V.
Then there was Thursday, in
San Antonio, when Williams
took the AT&T Center stage as
— ironically enough — North
Carolina’s head coach.
“A frustrating group to
coach?” Williams said, echo-
ing a question he had received
about UNC’s inconsistency. “Oh
my gosh, no. All the bullshit
around it has been frustrating.”
Williams offered a pseudo
apology for his sharp tongue,
saying he normally just uses
the letters, “B.S.”
No apology was necessary.
“B.S.” alone would not have
been enough.
Whether you sympathize
with UNC’s plight or not, you
can’t argue that Williams’ team
has been through one of its
most wearing, chaotic, turmoil-
filled seasons in recent memory.
Williams has said it’s been
the toughest season he’s had
as a coach. The P.J. Hairston
investigation and his subse-
quent removal from the team
was emotionally sapping. Add
in Leslie McDonald’s NCAA
troubles, a still-brewing aca-
demic scandal and a team that’s
played like a Carowinds ride,
and it’s a wonder UNC has even
made it to the Big Dance.
It’s also a testament to the
man at the helm, who has his
No. 6-seed Tar Heels posi-
tioned to take on No. 11-seed
Providence on Friday after
starting 1-4 in ACC play. He
maneuvered his team past all of
the external distractions — or
bull excrement, as Williams
might say — and into the NCAA
tournament, where many pun-
dits, early on, said UNC didn’t
His incessant talk of estab-
lishing a sense of urgency
dominated every press confer-
ence, but it also clearly bur-
rowed its way under his team’s
skin as the Tar Heels rattled off
12 wins in a row.
Old Roy won’t read this.
There isn’t a chance. He’s
expressed his exasperation
with the media on more than
one occasion. At the ACC
Tournament, after UNC fell to
80-75 to Pittsburgh, Williams
quipped that sophomore
Marcus Paige was smarter
than half of the journalists in
the room.
Don’t blame him for his frus-
tration, but also don’t blame
the media for their coverage.
They’re protecting the integrity
of the sport; Williams is pro-
tecting the sanctity of his team.
“Almost every coach in the
tournament loves their team,”
Williams said Thursday. “It
would be a great challenge to
find a coach that loves their
team more than Roy Williams
That same idea held true
for Williams 11 years ago

Every Friday an edito-
rial board member speaks
with a prominent figure
from the University or sur-
rounding community. This
week, Alexandra Willcox sat
down with Ashley Memory of
the Office of Undergraduate
t’s an exciting time in
the admissions office,
with the regular decision
announcements just around
the corner. Soon, thousands
of students will be celebrat-
ing their enrollment, but
even more will be rejected.
Memory and the rest of the
admissions office are ready to
provide consolation and sup-
port to all who need it.
“It’s horrible when your
heart is set on a college and
unfortunately, you’re not
admitted. We can under-
stand that here. That’s part
of what we do — we feel hor-
rible for the applicants, and
we want to do all we can do
to help them through this.”
The admissions process is
not faceless. Memory finds
personal connections with
students every day, and those
who review applications take
a holistic approach, consider-
ing everything a student has
done — not just test scores.
“Each year our (admitted)
students bring a different set
of talents. They are definitely
very smart, but it’s hard to
quantify them as a complete
class because we get to know
them on a very individual
This year, the office had
to deal with a new prob-
lem when glitches in the
Common Application were
disabling students from sub-
mitting parts of their appli-
cation on the day of the early
action deadline. That day,
Memory and her colleagues
received over 1,000 phone
calls and ended up postpon-
ing the deadline for a week,
and even longer for some
students with extenuating
They understand all the
work students have put into
preparing for college, and
don’t want their applications
to be in jeopardy because of
technical bugs.
In reference to the recent
changes to the SAT, includ-
ing making the essay portion
optional, Memory again
thinks first and foremost
of making the process
smoother for applicants,
especially first-generation
college students who may be
most unfamiliar with stan-
dardized tests.
“We know that the over-
arching goals for this change
were to make it more acces-
sible to students from all
backgrounds. And we do
certainly welcome that. We
want to do our part.”
The motto of the admis-
sions office is “great cheer.”
Memory encourages the
UNC community to reach
out to the thousands of pro-
spective students who are
expected to be on campus in
the upcoming weeks.

moving forward.
Here to stay
Budget deficits are a
legitimate concern, but
$2,500 is a small price
for the College of Arts of
Sciences to pay for a cer-
emony honoring an entire
department of students’
four years of hard work.
Graduation day comes
each and every year and
the ceremony’s $2,500
price-tag should be a
permanent line-item in
the global studies depart-
ment’s budget.
During the frenzy that
was putting the graduation
ceremony on hold, some
students offered to raise
the cost of the ceremony
themselves. While this was
a valiant offer from a group
of students that had just
been subjected to a last
minute injustice, there is
no reason this department
shouldn’t foot the bill the
same way other depart-
ments do.
A student-paid for grad-
uation ceremony would run
the risk of delegitimizing
the major and making the
department look like little
more than a charity case.
If the department
wants to continue entic-
ing students to enroll in
their department, the least
they could do is give them
the recognition that they
graduations need
to be protected.
igma Alpha Epsilon
fraternity’s decision
to ban pledging in
all chapters nationwide,
including UNC’s, will natu-
rally be met with resistance
by Greek traditionalists.
While this ban will
likely have backlash, the
Interfraternity Council
should closely monitor the
progress of Sigma Alpha
Epsilon to see if it is able
to maintain its promi-
nence, and perhaps others
should look into banning
pledging if the results are
Give it a chance
Sigma Alpha Epsilon is
one of the most popular
fraternities in the country,
ranking in the top five
in membership, which
includes a strong chapter
at UNC. If the fraternity
can survive this ban with
its reputation intact, then
it would serve as a promis-
ing model for other frater-
nities exploring eliminat-
ing the pledging process.
This is not to fully
endorse the move to ban
pledging — it has a valu-
able place in building
brotherhood and vetting
new members. A whole-
sale ban on pledging
could create a disconnect
between alumni and new
members, who would have
had strikingly different
Despite moving away
from a hallowed tradi-
tion, it’s impossible to say
this would not come with
Banning pledging effec-
tively takes out the most
dangerous time of the
year for fraternities, and it
would lead to a safer envi-
ronment, at least on paper.
Enforcing the ban would
be difficult, to say the least.
Simply put, this is a note-
worthy move from a major
player in America’s Greek
scene. With such a promi-
nent fraternity involved, the
results will have legitimate
implications on fraternity
culture nationwide.
Nationwide ban on
pledging should be
studied on campus.
