summer camps a popular option
by carolyn miller
staff writer

After most undergraduates leave UNC for the summer, thousands of campers flood the area. There are a variety of camp options. Kids can shoot hoops at the popular Roy Williams’ Carolina Basketball Camp and Clinics. Others might perfect their penalty kicks at the North Carolina Girls Soccer Camp. This list is not complete. There are many other sports and academic camps held throughout the summer season at UNC. C.B. McGrath, director of UNC’s basketball camp, said that roughly a few hundred participants attend each summer, ranging from 9 to 18 years old. The majority are residents of North Carolina. During the week, campers have the opportunity to interact with members of the basketball team, he said. McGrath said the campers love to give the players high fives and shake hands. “Sometimes they’d rather be on the side talking with them rather than playing,” McGrath said. He said the kids are very enthusiastic over Coach Williams’ appearance. “They obviously love having Coach Williams around – most

kids want his autograph more than anything.” Anson Dorrance is UNC’s women’s soccer coach and the camp director of the North Carolina Girls Soccer Camp. He is also a member of the National Soccer Hall of Fame. The camp aims for 2000 campers every summer, but Dorrance said that numbers have diminished due to the economy. Locations in both Chapel Hill and Greensboro allow people from all areas of the state to attend. Like the basketball camp, varsity soccer players offer a unique connection to both the team and the sport itself. The campers enjoy being surrounded by the active players. Dorrance described the players’ participation as a huge advantage. “It’s really good for camp morale,” Dorrance said. The soccer camp is also a great opportunity for hopeful Tar Heels to gain exposure. “It’s a recruiting platform- we actively recruit out of the camper environment,” Dorrance said. Granville Towers and UNC Housing provide accommodations for most of the on-campus summer programs. This helps create a genuine college atmosphere. Granville Towers accommodates

approximately 8,000-9,000 campers each summer, including the basketball camp. Allison Kenney, assistant general manager, said that their facilities, including a swimming pool, air hockey table and pool table, are very attractive to the coaches. “It’s a one-stop-shop,” Kenney said. Susan Rhody, UNC Housing’s coordinator for conference operations, noted that her office works with approximately 80 sessions held from mid-May until the first week of August. Rhody’s office of three takes care of the University’s residence halls. It works with facility and housing staff so that students can seamlessly return in the fall. She described the groups’ numerous interests, ranging from rowing and chamber orchestras to gaming technology and digital curation. An estimated 13,000 people will visit the campus, she said, with thirty-eight percent solely attending athletic camps. “It is a great thing that UNC’s wonderful reputation entices people to come to campus.” Contact the University Editor at

This summer, a handful of UNC students will take part in APPLES fellowship programs to bring innovative ideas to communities. APPLES has four student-led fellowship programs, two funded directly through APPLES, and two by private donors and the Office of Undergraduate Research. “Our motto is ‘student leadership, staff supported’ Sarah Smith, a student services specialist at APPLES, said. “Students ultimately make most of the calls, and staff is just hear to support.” Maura Allaire, a 2011 fellow, received funding from the Carolina Center for Public Service. She will continue the work she began two years ago in Peru. With the help of Engineers Without Borders, Allaire will build sustainable water systems. She saw the effect clean water had on the village from her previous work. “The community not only gained clean water, but a voice,” she said. Each fellow is matched with a faculty adviser.

EXPIRES 4/30/11

Before the 2011 baseball season began, the NCAA introduced new baseball bats that perform similarly to wood bats in competition. UNC junior Jesse Wierzbicki missed that memo. While the majority of the country has seen a slight drop in batting averages and power hitting, Wierzbicki’s average is up from .307 to .342 this season and he’s on pace to hit a couple more home runs. “He was banged up a lot last year,” UNC coach Mike Fox said. “I really think that affected his performance. He’s a senior … You know we needed him to have a good year for us, and so far he’s done that.” UNC has enjoyed some early success this season thanks for performances like Wierzbicki’s, but Fox isn’t putting too much stock into what his team has done halfway through the season. And, by the end of the year, neither will anyone else. “We’ve got plenty of games left,” Fox said. “Our season can continue to improve or it can go south on us, depending on our level of play and injuries. That’s just the way baseball is. We just want to enjoy where we are now and keep working.” As of Thursday, North Carolina (29-5, 12-3 ACC) sits behind Virginia in the ACC coastal divi-

sion standings. The Tar Heels started conference play 1-2, but have swept three straight ACC opponents since. Last season was a slightly different story. North Carolina was 2-10 through its first 12 conference games and finished 14-16 in the ACC. “Getting to Omaha is always our goal, but it’s something you can’t do in February, March and April,” Fox said. “You can put yourself in a good position.” So far, that’s exactly what UNC has done. So far. The baseball season is long and stretches into May and deep into June for the teams that make it that far in the postseason. The gap between last season and this year at the halfway point seems much larger than it is. Fox said the Tar Heels lost a number of close games last season. This year, UNC is 5-3 in games within two runs after eight innings, including a 3-0 mark in games tied after eight innings. That includes freshman third baseman Colin Moran’s threerun homer in the bottom of the ninth against Duke that tied the game. UNC eventually won it in 11 innings. Moran has been big for UNC all season at the plate. He not only leads the team in RBI and home runs, but he’s also batting .348 and leads UNC in on-base percentage.

“You hope you have a couple of freshman that can come in and play at this level,” Fox said. “And by play at this level, I mean ‘be competitive’… I don’t think any of us expected Colin to have the year he’s had so far.” As a team, UNC has a 3.47 ERA and has the seventh-best strikeout-per-nine-innings ratio in the nation. “It’s a combination of several things,” Fox said. “Our starting pitching has been good and has allowed us to not get into our bullpen until the fifth, sixth inning. And we have a lot more depth in the bullpen than we had last year and we’ve used it.” UNC still have plenty of tough teams still on the schedule. The Tar Heels haven’t played Virginia who is a top-10 team nationally. Georgia Tech, N.C. State and Miami are further down the road too. “This is a neat team to be around,” he said. “We’ve been behind like five out of the last six games. We were behind in the top of the first inning in all three games against Clemson, but the team didn’t panic. I think they’ve got some resolve and some grit to them, and some toughness and they expect to win. It’s always fun to be around kids like that.” Contact the Sports Editor at

Despite the fact that more than half of her supporting cast on the North Carolina softball team is composed of underclassmen, junior left fielder Kelli Wheeler has confidence that they can make a serious run at the regular season title. Beyond that, she said, it’s anyone’s game. The Tar Heels (26-15, 9-3 ACC) currently own the most ACC victories, but league foe Georgia Tech (31-6, 6-0) has yet to lose a conference game. The Yellow Jackets have claimed both the regular season and conference tournament title in each of the last two seasons. “Tech definitely has a target on their backs,” Wheeler said. Coach Donna Papa said Georgia Tech is UNC’s toughest opponent still to face this season. “They lead the country in home runs and we’re playing down there so that’s going to be a tough series,” Papa said. “It’ll tell a lot.” Papa is the winningest coach in UNC and ACC softball history, racking up 1,000 wins with the Tar Heels’ victory against Florida State in March — a milestone only 10 other Division I NCAA coaches can claim. Papa’s 975 wins at North Carolina during her 26-year coaching tenure have helped sculpt the North Carolina program into the successful one that it is today. Papa has led the Tar Heels to eight consecutive NCAA appearances.

the north Carolina softball team will look to wrest the aCC crown from Georgia tech, which has won the past two conference championships.
Wheeler fronts the Tar Heels’ attack with a .421 batting average and a team-leading nine home runs. Combined with her 25 RBI, nine stolen bases and 15 multi-hit games in 2011, she leads the team in 10 statistical categories. Backing her up is a balanced team assault, with a .285 total batting average and .957 fielding percentage. On the mound, freshman Lori Spingola leads UNC with a 20-11 record and 1.69 ERA. She boasts 174 strikeouts to just 35 walks. “I definitely see us winning the ACC this year,” Spingola said. “We are going to peak at the right time.” Last season, UNC fell to the Yellow Jackets in the second round of the conference tournament. Though the Tar Heels still received a bid to the NCAAs, they failed to overcome defending national champion Washington in a hardfought series. This year, the Tar Heels faced tough ranked opponents early on, going up against then-No. 2 Alabama and then-No. 5 Florida. “I feel like those games really helped them grow,” Papa said. “Now we’ve got a lot of season left, a lot of series left. The only thing I’m disappointed in is that we’re out of the polls for the first time in years.” The Tar Heels started the season ranked, but slipped from the top25 after several weeks of play. Papa said it’s her goal to coach the Tar Heels to an ACC title, and hopefully make an appearance in the College World Series. With 17 games remaining before the conference tournament begins, North Carolina has plenty of time to work on achieving that goal. “We’ve definitely improved as the season has progressed,” Wheeler said. “The young people in our lineup are maturing and the team chemistry is getting better. The sky’s the limit as long as we put all of our talent to use.” Contact the Sports Editor at

Men’s lacrosse looks ahead
by evan G. marlow
staff writer

Going into the season, North Carolina men’s lacrosse coach Joe Breschi knew his team might have its ups and downs as he incorporated the nations No. 1 recruiting class. And with both impressive wins and disappointing losses for the Tar Heels, so far he’s been right. Breschi said he expected the uncertainty. “We’re very much a work in progress,” he said. “I think we are one of those teams that without a lot of depth, we have to manage game well and manage what we do well as opposed to worrying about our opponents too much.” Despite still being a work in progress, the Tar Heels have been able to post a 7-4 record and earn a No. 8 national ranking. UNC has beaten top-tier teams such as Maryland and the University of Pennsylvania this season, and the Tar Heels were ranked as high as No. 4 in the country. Some familiar faces have been key to UNC’s success, including attackman Billy Bitter and defenseman Ryan Flanagan. However, it has been a pair of freshman that has made the biggest impact for the Tar Heels so far. Attackman Nicky Galasso came in as the top recruit in the country and has lived up to the billing. “Nick has been the marquee guy who came in and was ready to play,” Breschi said. “There are very few freshmen out there that are able to step on and make an impact.” Galasso’s impact has been huge, and he leads the team with 37 points. His 21 assists is more than double that of anyone else on the team. He’s found success all season long in setting up the team’s dangerous scorers.

freshman nicky Galasso has lived up to the hype in his first season at unc. the long island native leads the tar heels in points and assists.
While Galasso came in highly touted, he’s not been the only freshman to find success in the Tar Heels’ 2011 campaign. Following the first batch of scrimmages, Breschi noted that his team would have trouble with draws because of inexperienced freshman taking them. So it certainly comes as a bit of a surprise that one of the Tar Heels’ strengths so far this season has been at the face-off. R.G. Kennan has stepped up and become one of the top face-off men in the country, winning over 60 percent of his draws. That’s something Breschi says has been a humongous part of his team’s success. “It’s given us anywhere from 5-10 extra possessions a game,” Breschi said. “If you look back on some of the games we’ve won, they’re close and part of it is we’ve been able to win face-offs and have almost a make-it-take-it approach.” Winning the battle at the faceoff X will be important for the remainder of the season, as the Tar Heels will meet some of their best competition coming up in the ACC Tournament and in the season finale against last year’s national runner-up, Notre Dame. As the team gears up for postseason play, Breschi said that to be successful UNC needs to continue to improve on the little things. The Tar Heels’ main focus isn’t on any specific goal — they just want to improve every single day. “We’ll talk about expectations but I think we’re really just worrying about ourselves getting better,” Breschi said.

in summer, Chapel Hill is the place to embrace

Visit for campus news & sports

here are a lot of reasons to be in Chapel Hill after May: summer school, work or simply living out a lease. Whatever keeps you confined to our idyllic town this summer, you may as well make the most of it. Chapel Hill in the summer is a unique place. Most students ship out, and a lot of CTOPers ship in. It’s a strange mix of current students, townies, and a Carolina blue sea of overzealous future freshmen. Like oil and water, right? Understandably, this strange summer mix makes for a special night life downtown. The weather is great to sit outside at Top of the Hill, no one really has a high workload and (most) incoming freshman won’t be found in bars. But maybe drinking isn’t your thing, or maybe you just need something to do during the day. The iconic Fridays on the Front Porch returns on April 29. Not only is it free, but there’s plenty of great live entertainment. Assuming you want to get your tan on, there are plenty of local pools. It’s a killer Foursquare opportunity: Become mayor of all of the pools in town. There’s gotta be a badge for that, right? But, of course, there’s some-

thing for the misanthrope in all of us. Consider biking along the scenic nearby trails. Or go, either alone or with a group, to the N.C. Botanical Garden. I’ll bet most people reading this column had no clue it was even near UNC. And that’s really sort of the beauty of summer. Either through genuine curiosity or mind-numbing boredom, you feel compelled to branch out and do the things you have never really done before. And in the age of Google, there’s really no excuse for not finding something new and local. The moral of the story is that no matter who you are or why you’re here, there’s a way to make Chapel Hill the place for you. From those leaving town this summer: It’s nice to know our slice of heaven will be in good hands. We can’t wait to see you, and the town we love, in the fall.

As flip flops, palm trees and pool parties fill the minds of UNC students, so does a less relaxing topic – summer jobs. “If you don’t have a summer job yet, start looking today,” said Jacquelyn Gist, assistant director of University Career Services. Students hoping to work off-campus should consider Franklin Street restaurants such as Panera Bread or Spanky’s Restaurant and Bar. Panera’s prospective employees can apply online year-round, marketing department employee Elana Jones said. “If we have more business and we need more employees, we would hire more,” she said. “It’s definitely more of a need thing than a seasonal thing.” Spanky’s, which employs primarily students, experiences a rise in applications during the summer, said manager Gavin Toth. In addition to restaurants, Gist recommended students consider working at camps, parks, day cares and the YMCA. Gist said students should utilize Careerolina, a UCS database, for more information on job listings, career fairs and recruiting. The largest on-campus employers are CTOPS, Housing and Residential Education, Campus Recreation and University Libraries – although summer positions are filling quickly, according to Gist. Student Recreational Center Director Reggie Hinton said that Campus Rec employs between 75 and 100 students as fitness consultants, fitness monitors, group fitness instructors, personal trainers and receptionists. Ho u s i n g a n d R e s i d e n t i a l Education also offers summer jobs, but these positions – like many at Campus Rec – are already filled. “We had over 200 candidates apply for around 50 positions,” said Alaina Barth, coordinator for staff recruitment and development. Whether waiting tables, teaching campers or leading fitness classes, students should make the most of their summer jobs, said Gist. “Don’t get by with the minimum,” she said. “If you’re bussing tables, be the best table-busser that restaurant has ever seen.” Contact the University Editor at

internships now deemed essential
experts, students emphasize value
by Harrison okin
staff writer

Visit for campus news & sports

With an increasingly uncertain economy, many students are looking for an extra competitive edge. Internships are becoming a major catalyst in job searches. Summer internships, once believed to appeal to only the most determined students, are now almost crucial for a wide variety of jobs including those in business and journalism. “Employers will gravitate towards those who are most passionate in the field. Internships make you much more competitive,” said Jay Eubank, the director of placement and special programs at the School of Journalism. Internships are no longer reserved for the student who knows he wants to be a CEO or practice corporate law, according to Leigh Babaian, associate director for career development at the Kenan-Flagler Business School Rather, they serve as a breeding ground for students to develop new skills and experience, factors that will springboard them to the forefront of an employer’s prospective hiring list, she said. Eubank said the most important thing a student can do is network out, make connections and keep in touch with potential employers. By doing so, the student distinguishes himself from the hundreds of resumes and cover letters that companies receive. Junior Blake Frieman, a business administration major, anticipated the competition. He has completed two internships so far. “Employers, especially those involved with finance or consulting, like to see that candidates are able to demonstrate leadership, teamwork and critical thinking, both in and out of the classroom,” he said. For students who have never considered applying for such a position, there are still plenty of opportunities, said Sue Harbour,

senior assistant director for undergraduate business at the Department of Career Services. “Companies are always looking to hire, and while the student may not get a position with a Fortune 500 firm, smaller internships will still help the student grow as a professional,” she said. She maintains that students should start thinking of an internship as soon as freshman year. “Even though an internship is not mandatory, it should be mentally mandatory,” she said. Any student can walk into Career Services and meet with a counselor to tailor his interests to prospective jobs, she said. Harbour emphasized that it is particularly pertinent for upperclassmen, who should target their search to a relevant field in order to help them get a job in the first year out of college. According to Babaian, the more experience the better. She said it is common for freshmen and sophomores to engage in general skillbuilding positions and then finetune their search in their junior and senior year when students have a better idea of what they want to go into after they graduate. Those familiar with Careerolina can play the field themselves online. Harbour said a counselor meeting can only help a student. They might discover that they can work in many different fields because skills are transferable. Some do not always have a positive outlook. “Internships exploit smart college students for little or no pay,” sophomore Stephen Padgett said. “They could easily get the work experience from a real job.” Despite this view, the benefits of an internship are undeniable. Eubank stressed how it enhances one’s resume and skills for a job after college. “Even if you don’t know what you want to do in the future, you are competing against people who do,” he said. “You need all the extra experience you can get.” Contact the University Editor at

Summer on the Hill

The Daily Tar Heel

Housing easy to find for summer sessions
by jacqueline kantor
staff writer

For those wishing to stay in Chapel Hill or Carrboro for the summer, there is no shortage of on- and off-campus housing. Rick Bradley, assistant director of assignments and communication for Housing and Residential Education, said that most of the rooms in upper quad, lower quad, Rams Village and Odum Village residence halls remain open throughout the summer. “Housing for the summer doesn’t really differ from semester housing,” he added. “There’s so many fewer students.” Janna Walsh, Granville West receptionist, said they still have units availability for both summer sessions. Their website includes floor plans and prices per room. The East tower 8th and 9th floors offer single rooms. “The rent includes room and utility and the lease is 15 meals a week,” Walsh said. Summer residents at Granville have full access to the pool and gym facilities. Other apartments have year-long leases on units, so summer housing is arranged between the current lease holders and yearly renters. At Chapel Ridge, the lease starts August 15 and all units are currently rented. Summer housing is only available if the current lease holders choose to sublet for the summer. Chapel Ridge does have a sublet list of available units for those

interested. Both current and potential renters can refer to this list when looking for options. Mill Creek’s lease begins August 1. This makes it difficult for students who recently signed leases to live in their apartments over the summer. Sophomore Andy Brandt plans to live in Mill Creek next year. Instead of trying to sublet from the previous owner, she is staying at her sister’s house in Carrboro. “I’ll move my stuff in August, but I probably won’t start living there until a week before classes,” she said. “It was just cheaper to live with my sister.” Warehouse leases run for a full year from July 31, so availability for summer leases is also determined through the tenants. Ads are posted on Craigslist or around campus. Sophomore Vanessa da Costa stayed in on-campus housing last summer. This year, she’ll be taking summer classes again and working part time. She will be living in an off-campus house she rented for the next school year. “Before I signed the lease in February, I was going to look for a sublet for the summer,” she said. Da Costa explained that her first priority was to find housing for junior year. “I really wanted off-campus housing this year.” Contact the University Editor at

Fellowships support research
students reach out to professors
by AnA RochA
staff writer

Select undergraduate students forego a summer at the beach to pursue one of UNC’s multiple research opportunities. Those interested can apply for Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowships through the Office for Undergraduate Research. The office expects to give out at least 60 individual awards of $3,000 each this summer, according to its website. There are also special awards for students involved in the Honors Program or pursuing communitybased research. Patricia Pukkila, associate dean of undergraduate research, said the office is always trying to recruit students in fields other than science. “A lot of people think, ‘Oh research, that’s just for the kids in the lab. I’m an English major,’” she said. “Well, no, actually it is for you too.” Pukkila says interested students should talk to their professors. Often professors can connect stu-

dents with colleagues working on specific research. Jacqueline Hagan, a professor of sociology, took an interested undergraduate to Mexico last summer to research return migration. “It is important for students to take initiative,” Hagan said. Hagan also emphasized the value of motivation and discipline in undergraduate researchers. Kenneth Barshop and Eric Butter are good examples of driven students who successfully realized their original research project. They spent the summer after their freshman year in Cleveland, Miss., at a health clinic. They tested a relationship between the high rate of Type II Diabetes in rural Mississippi and socio-economic and lifestyle factors. “As for having done it after freshman year,” Barshop said. “I had been fortunate to have enough research experience in high school so that I knew a bit about the research process.” Their research was funded by the National Institutes of Health’s STEP-UP program, which gives funds to high school students and undergraduates conducting original research, and by the Robertson Scholars Program. Barshop and Butter’s faculty

adviser was a Duke University professor, but Barshop said UNC professors are also very supportive of undergraduate students’ research. “Even the best researchers here are always incredibly eager to offer research positions to dedicated undergraduate students,” he said. Graduate students also often look to undergraduates for help in their research. Erin Stevens Nelson, an archaeology graduate student, has been working with some undergraduates on her research this semester. “Working with undergrads in the field and in the lab has been a great collaborative experience for me and I hope for my students as well,” Nelson said. “The program gives undergraduates the chance to learn research skills from a more experienced researcher and it gives me the chance to improve my teaching and communication skills.” Nelson is currently looking for undergraduates interested in doing excavations in three residential neighborhoods in Mississippi. “All I ask is that students are enthusiastic about learning and not afraid to get their hands dirty.” Contact the University Desk at

With summer quickly approaching, new and prospective students are appearing around campus. Whether following along on a tour or visiting during CTOPS, they are trying to find a place at UNC. Campus tours, led by Admissions Ambassadors, typically begin in the early spring. The guides share personal stories and advice to ease fears. Current students apply in the fall to become ambassadors, serving as an extension of the UNC admissions office and helping to recruit potential students. Andrew Parrish, assistant director at the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, said that campus tours have been offered to students for more than 30 years and associated pamphlets have been around since 1975. “We know more than half of our prospective students say Carolina was their best visit because the students they saw on campus seemed friendlier and happier,” Parrish said in an email. “This means the average student walking across campus is actually making a lot more of a difference than they realize,” he said. According to visitor surveys, approximately 65 percent of students leave campus more enthusiastic about UNC. “A campus tour helps students see and understand what actually happens in Caudill Labs or in the pit or in Murphey 116,” Parrish said. “Campus tours make Carolina come alive.” The casual feel of tours and the personal connections established can influence a potential student’s choice to become a UNC freshman. “The tours showcase our beautiful, residential campus and highlight the stories of the smart and friendly students who attend here,” Parrish said.

While campus tours are optional, incoming first-year students are required to enroll in CTOPS. The program is a two-day orientation designed to aid students in adjusting to college life. Orientation Leaders, students selected by the New Student and Carolina Parent program, lead CTOPS groups during the summer and participate in Week of Welcome activities. Former Orientation Leader and junior Donald Cooley said that he was inspired by his own orientation leader at CTOPS. “I saw how much of a positive impact that the OLs had on so many people,” Cooley said. Cooley described the job as an opportunity to give back to the UNC community and serve as a role model and emblem of the university. “It has been the most rewarding experience of my collegiate career and, if I could, I would do it every summer.” Orientation leaders form close friendships with their peers during their tenure. Prospective students in CTOPS groups often follow suit. Sophomore Justin Brandenburg met two of his best friends at CTOPS. “CTOPS is definitely important in helping students acclimate to college life,” Brandenburg said. “It’s one of those situations where you’re spending a lot of time with new people, doing the same things,” he said. Campus tours and the CTOPS experience work together to create a feeling of belonging for many new students. Both experiences produce an accurate and personalized picture of UNC life. Sophomore Suzanne Le, an attendee of CTOPS 2009, said she took a campus tour prior to CTOPS to get a better feel for the campus. “It was definitely a memorable part of my time at Carolina,” Le said. “I got to experience Carolina twice before I moved here — it looked good and it still looks good.” Contact the University Editor at

‘eating animals’ informative to new students
by kaitlyn knepp
staff writer

For most college students, time is spent focused on studies rather than what foods are being ingested. This summer, incoming students will be challenged to think about the foods that they eat. A joint committee comprised of UNC and Duke faculty, staff and students chose “Eating Animals” by Jonathan Safran Foer as the 2011 Summer Reading Program book selection. “The joint committee had student members from Duke and UNC who were extremely thoughtful in reviewing the nominated titles and selecting finalists that they thought would appeal to incoming students,” said Jan Yopp, the dean of summer school and chairwoman of UNC’s selection committee. The book is a nonfiction account of Foer’s research into America’s eating habits, and how people justify their eating choices. Shandol Hoover, the associate director for New Student and Carolina Parent Programs, said the summer reading selection has to provoke interesting discussion, and must be at the appropriate developmental level of incoming students. Other criteria include a topic that would be relatable to students, content that is intellectually stimulating and an author that would be a good speaker. “After reviewing more than 450 nominations from both campuses, the joint committee felt this book would challenge students to think about decision-making as well as give them information about how America’s food is produced,” Yopp said. Other finalist titles included “The Dew Breaker” by Edwidge Danticat, “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks” by Rebecca Skloot, “Losing My Cool” by Thomas Chatterton Williams, “The Sea” by John Banville and “Shop Class as Soulcraft” by Matthew B. Crawford. Hoover said one of the goals of the program is to encourage incoming students’ participation in the University’s intellectual climate through critical thinking and active discussion. While the program is intended for incoming freshmen and transfer students, others can be involved by leading discussions. Yopp said that the committee wanted to select a book that students otherwise might not have chosen to read. “Personally, I hope that students

will look at the author’s research and how he came to his own decision about ‘Eating Animals’ as a model for making important life decisions for themselves,” Yopp said. Junior Lucy Barber, a fan of Foer’s popular book “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close,” said that hearing Foer speak at Duke last spring sparked her interest in reading “Eating Animals.” “I think it’s a great book on the subject because of his use of storytelling in combination with relaying what can sometimes be over-

whelming facts,” she said. Erica Eisdorfer, the support services supervisor at Bull’s Head Bookshop, said that they have already sold many copies of the book. “I haven’t heard anything negative about this one,” she said. “People seem to feel favorable.” While the book has been criticized for being a “guilt trip,” Barber found it to be telling because Foer has the same interest as the average customer. “He makes a conceit at the beginning of the book that he

doesn’t claim to be a food expert, just a curious consumer as we all should be.” Cheryl Molinatto, a nutrition education consultant with UNC Counseling and Wellness Services, said that although she has not read the whole book, she is encouraged by the selection. “It is important for all of us to be more aware of the food system and the global impact of the food we eat,” Molinatto said.

Maymester attracts dedicated students
by Kristina Kinard
staff writer

The promise behind the Maymester program is simple. Students can earn three credit hours in three weeks. This is only for those who can commit their time and true effort from May 10 through May 27. The condensed classes might combine up to a week’s worth of homework in a single night. Maymester became a permanent part of Summer School in 2010 when 418 students enrolled. It now includes 36 courses representing 15 departments. Dale Hutchinson, an anthropology professor, said he is a strong believer in the program. “It really keeps you in the saddle, constantly going, really totally engrossed in it.” Jan Yopp, dean of Summer School, said a lot of students like the focused learning for an intense time without the distractions of other courses and activities. “Students can easily complete Maymester and then get out soon to enjoy their summer,” she said. The long class periods provide opportunities for other methods of teaching. “A variety of teaching and learning methods are employed — some discussion, presentation, some breaks like field activities, or films,” Hutchinson said. A few of the courses scheduled this summer even have travel com-

ponents to Morehead City, local museums or Charleston, S.C. Each course occupancy is kept low, with no class exceeding 30 students and averaging between 10 and 20 students. Julia Wood, professor of humanities, said she enjoys getting to know her students. She attributes better grades from the Maymester, as compared to spring or fall semesters, to a greater sense of community formed during intense sessions. The summer school offices are very careful when selecting courses for Maymester. They make sure the classes offered are feasible for the time constraints. “You will never see Chemistry 101 taught in three weeks,” said Yopp. Not all people are strong advocates of the tough schedule. Lisa LaMantia, a senior academic advisor, said she rarely recommends the Maymester program because of its high intensity. “Class for that time is your life,” she said. An extremely unique opportunity, Maymester is something that students must think about and plan for before enrolling. “The most important thing is to know what kind of student you are,” Hutchinson said. “Then you will know if Maymester is right for you.” Contact the University Editor at

Major movie releases local shows create summer vibes worth a theater trip

Whether you’re heading off to a job or a few months mowing your parents’ lawn, summer is still that time when things slow down to a beautiful, molasses pace. Daylight is longer, the air is heavy and there is time to sneak into a cool place for a few hours of escape — namely, a movie theater. Here are the flicks Transformers: Dark of the Dive is most excited to see this Moon summer, in order of release date.

In the film, a son finds that his dying father is gay, and that a younger lover has been in the picture lately. At the very least, the story should play to your intellectual side.

Good news for all of you whose friends went home and left you for the summer: Chapel Hill’s fun level might be seasonal, but good local music is perennial.

Big-name actors like Sean Penn and Brad Pitt are another reason to shell out a few bucks this May.
