The entrace of Cumberland Heights in Nashville, Tenn. (Cumberland Heights)
OP-ED: One day at a time—my battle with addiction
Grant Savage, Contributing Writer • May 18, 2023
During this time, my mother and I learned a lot about our relationship. Not only was I abusing drugs, but I was also stealing and lying to her. Shortly before Cumberland Heights, she figured out that I withdrew $2,000 from her account. Law enforcement suggested filing charges against me, which she seriously considered. No charges were brought upon me but a 60-day stint in jail, courtesy of my mother, proved her point. These were topics talked about out loud during family week amongst all of the other participants. Learning about everyone else’s struggles with addiction helped shape my thinking for the rest of my stay at Cumberland Heights.

OPINION: Dear Campus Community, are we overcoming adversity or enabling it?
Hannah Markov, Editor-in-Chief • April 29, 2023
Dear Campus Community, It’s difficult for me to express myself thoroughly sometimes. As Editor-in-Chief, that may be strange to hear, but anger, disbelief and disappointment come easy when spoken or written off-handedly in a journal. However, to emulate those emotions in writing for you all is a whole different matter. Anger, disbelief and disappointment. How else can I describe the feeling of knowing my own university celebrated a bigot?

OPINION: A follow up on UNCW's accessibility for neurodivergent students
Michael Friant, Staff Writer • April 22, 2023
Accessibility should be a priority on UNCW's campus because of its status as a public institution. However, the more I move around the campus, the more apparent it becomes that the University is more concerned with aesthetics and saving money than accessibility. Before getting into the logistics of what I’ve been seeing recently, I want to address a meeting I had in lieu of the article I published last fall on accessibility design flaws on campus.

Kenan House is the Historic Kenan House, home of UNCWs chancellor, is a 7,500-square-foot Neoclassical Revival dwelling constructed in 1911 and deeded to the university by the Kenan family in 1968. It stands on Market Street beside the Wise Alumni House.
OPINION: The hidden racist history of the Kenan House
Sophia Culler, Staff Writer • March 1, 2023
Students are not expected to know the story behind every building owned by UNCW, but they should know the origins of the home where their Chancellor resides. The Chancellor’s home, also known as the Kenan House, has a history that is especially vital to learn during Black History Month. For the students and faculty who don’t know it, it’s time to go to school.
Of all the countries in the world, TikTok has proven to be most popular in the U.S., with a staggering 113.25 million users.
OPINION: TikTok takes a toll on self esteem
Peyton Dickerson, Staff Writer • February 27, 2023
The idea of seeing this many people in one lifetime is still novel. It's important to remember that everyone is worthy of love and a good life no matter their appearance. Beauty is superficial—and fades—so character always stays most important.

OPINION: Ye: The Anti-Semite of the Year
Hannah Markov, Editor-in-Chief • December 21, 2022
If you support anti-Semitism, you support white supremacy. If you support Ye’s comments on Nazism and the Jewish people, you, by relation, support Nazism. If you support anti-Jewish rhetoric, you support the very same issue that has plagued this and most other countries for hundreds of years: racism.
Society has made Christmas into an extremely glamorized event that is easily capitalized off of.
Christmas advertisements fail to reflect holiday realities
Michael Friant, Staff Writer • December 19, 2022
Holiday marketing should include everyone’s reality rather than just scanty picturesque moments. While advertisements and movies can continue promoting joyous holiday moments, they should also incorporate the less fortunate aspects of the holidays. Due to the lack of the former in media, many are unfortunately instilled with a sense of shame and guilt if their situations do not fit the Hollywood mold.
