UNC From A To Z

UNC From A To Z

"Our love for this place is based on the fact that it is as it was meant to be, the University of the people." - Charles Kuralt

It seems like everybody here has fallen in love with the alphabet of UNC—all of the little things that make up the nation's best value in public higher education for in-state and out-of-state students for the 16th year in a row.

A - Alpine Bagel.

It's on the bucket list to try all the bagels, and the cream cheese is definitely world renowned.

B - Bricks.

From tripping on them to collecting to them, their just a quintessential UNC experience.

C - Chapel Hill.

There's something about a small, college town that just makes it irresistible. Even more so when it's your tiny college town.

D - Dean Dome.

The capacity may be 21,750, but the dome has actually topped out at 22,125. That many screaming fans is something you can't quite forget.

E - Events.

From Sunset Serenade to Holi Moli, nobody puts on an event quite like UNC does.

F - Franklin Street.

Whether you're rushing it or strolling it, the street seems to have a character all its own.

G - GDTBATH.

Let's face it, this is mostly fun to confuse non-UNC students with.

H - History.

The nation's first public university. Enough said.

I - Intramurals.

We can play inner tube water polo, and if that's not something to be proud of I really don't know what is.

J - James Taylor.

Because he chose us, and that's something no other school can say.

K - Kenan Stadium.

Though the stadium has been expanded several times since it was first opened in 1927, great care has been taken to keep it below the Carolina pines that surround it, earning it the title of "most picturesque football stadium in the country."

L - Libraries.

Even if studying isn't going so well, it's pretty difficult not to love Davis and Wilson, with their big windows and cozy study spaces.

M - Mapleview.

The ice-cream is delightful and the scenery is gorgeous. What's not to love?

N - National Championships.

42 NCAA Division I national championships across 7 sports. 5 NCAA Basketball Championships.

O - Onyen.

Any school that names their username after a vegetable is near and dear to my heart.

P - Pit.

You never know what you're going to see, and there's so much fun in that. Whether it's someone making a smoothie with a bike, a corn hole competition, or a giant beach ball prepped and ready for signing, there's always something going on.

Q - Quads.

Polk Place is, of course, the favorite, but it's hard not to fall in love with every quad on campus, and adopt a favorite tree in each one.

R - Rivalries.

Let's just say there's a lot of satisfaction in ending the alma mater.

S - Secrets.

Maybe not real secrets, but everybody has a spot on campus that they've deemed "theirs", and it's nice to pretend that nobody else knows about it.

T - Tarheels.

Just imagine a team so tough that their heels are stuck in tar.

U - Union.

Walking into the Union and smelling Alpine, seeing the decorations for all times of the year, and finding your favorite table open feels an awful lot like coming home to a favorite spot here on campus.

V - Varsity Theater.

$4.00 tickets for any movie in a quaint old theater. What's not to love?

W - Well.

It all goes back to tradition, and we're just very fond of that.

X - eXploring.

Sure, it's a stretch to make it start with X, but it is one of the best parts of this school. We've got a huge campus, and there's no way to run out of things to do or see.

Y - Yopo.

New flavors every week and oh so creamy.

Z - Zipline.

There's full moon zip lining right here on campus.

10 Shows Netflix Should Have Acquired INSTEAD of Re-newing 'Friends' For $100 Million

Could $100 Million BE anymore of an overspend?

Netflix broke everyone's heart and then stitched them back together within a matter of 12 hours the other day.

How does one do that you may wonder. Well they start by announcing that as of January 1st, 2019 'Friends' will no longer be available to stream. This then caused an uproar from the ones who watch 'Friends' at least once a day, myself including. Because of this giant up roar, with some threats to leave Netflix all together, they announced that 'Friends' will still be available for all of 2019. So after they renewed our hope in life, they released that it cost them $100 million.

$100 million is a lot of money, money that could be spent on variety of different shows.

What I Have And Will Continue To Learn From Working With Kids

I always say that I will learn more from my students than they will from me, and I cannot wait to start that journey.

I have loved kids ever since I can remember.

I was an only child up until I was 5 years old. Those years were great, but I spent a good amount of them laying on the floor, crying and begging my parents for another sibling.

Soon my sister came, then another sister and then my brother.

I loved them so much and wanted to do nothing but care for them.

My siblings made me realize how much I love working with kids, how much I love teaching them and how much I love learning from them.

I had the opportunity to help my dad coach my sister's softball and basketball teams. This was one of the best experiences I have ever had.

Throughout high school, I spent time volunteering in elementary classrooms, and any "uncertainty" I had about what I wanted to do with my life was gone.

The "uncertainty" was the fact that I maybe wouldn't get paid enough, I wouldn't be good enough or people would think I wasn't smart enough.

But I can learn more from kids than I could ever learn from my professors.

And I'm not saying anything against any profession. But we all have our things.

And mine is kids, mine is teaching.

Children teach me to take life a little less seriously.

They have taught me that you truly never know what other people are going through and we are all going through something.

Children will teach me to keep my patience.

They will keep me young forever.

Children have taught me to never pass judgment and always spread kindness

They will teach me lessons that I can't even imagine right now and things I don't even know.

I always say that I will learn more from my students than they will from me, and I cannot wait to start that journey.
