We made it, Seahawks. Two months after the coronavirus pandemic caused schools to shut down, forced classes online, sent many students back home, and all the adjustments that came in the middle of the semester, finals week is almost over.

Hello, again, my Seahawks! My family is moving at the end of the summer, but since I'm graduating, I'm not sure if I should move with them or not. Does living with my parents make me less of an adult? ABSOLUTELY NOT. I know of plenty of people that decide to go back to living with their parents af...

Commencement is postponed. That sucks. If you have been a student at UNC Wilmington for the past few years, it is clear that this run has been rocky. Fall 2018 saw Hurricane Florence take us out of school for a month, and right when we got back to school, Tropical Storm (née Hurricane) Michael hit....

“What are some fun things to do in Wilmington?” These are some things to do that are either cheap or completely free: 1. Beach, beach, beach. The sun, the sand and you. 2. Riverwalk—For a nice date, this is the spot to go! It is out in the open, it is beautiful at night and there is ple...

I’m more than halfway through with my sophomore year in college and I hate my major. What should I do? Picking up and starting over in all instances can be terrifying. The best part about this time in our lives is that we are young and we’ve still got time to make mistakes. So what, you don’t li...

I’m not doing well in one of the classes that I need to graduate. How do I reach out to my professor this late in the semester? There’s something about spring semester that’s just harder than the fall. Maybe it’s because the weather is nicer and we’re that much closer to summer. Or maybe i...

In my mind I’m still on Spring Break, how do I refocus myself to finish strong for the rest of the semester? Fall break and spring break are especially hard to recover from. They are long enough to enjoy yourself but not long enough to feel rejuvenated. Spring break in everyone’s mind is the halfw...

My roommate got a dog without asking and we are not allowed to have dogs in our apartment complex. Should I say something to him or go directly to the apartment complex about it? I would first try to approach your roommate about your concerns regarding his dog. There is a possibility that he was unaw...
