Welcome to unc Charlotte USE THIS GUIDE TO EASE YOUR TRANSITION INTO NINER NATION hunter heilman EDITOR-IN-CHIEF

Congratulations on being accepted to UNC Charlotte! You’ve made it. You’ve gotten past graduation and you’re enjoying your last high school summer before plunging into the abyss that is college. Your fear and anxiety of what you think college is going to be is far worse than what you’ll experience. In fact, what you’ll experience will be the best four (or more) years of your life, but you’ve heard that a million times, right? You’ve gotten pretty lucky in choosing UNC Charlotte, because despite over 27,000 students, we each have our chance to stand out as individuals. It can feel daunting and overwhelming first entering the school, but if you follow my steps, you can find your niche in UNC Charlotte faster than you know.

do not take time for granted

While I’m only approaching my junior year, it’s felt like less than two weeks have passed since beginning my freshman year here at UNC Charlotte. More than half of my college career is over and I can’t help but wonder how I’ve let it pass me by like this. Four years of high school might have felt like forever, college is another beast altogether. Do not waste any time in getting involved on campus. There are endless possibilities to explore while on campus, whether it be a student organization, intramural sports, performance groups or Greek Life. There’s something for everyone. Even if there isn’t something for you, UNC Charlotte offers an easy and creative way to make your own student organization just for your interests. If you’re wondering whether you should give your time to an organization, attend a meeting just to feel it out. I joined Niner Media on an impulse decision my freshman year after picking up a newspaper and seeing an ad showcasing our Thursday meetings. Two years, 280 articles, four promotions, countless hours and many priceless friends later, I’ve found that my impulse decision has paid off in the long run.

find your perfect living arrangement

Being a freshman, there’s a good chance you’re finding yourself in a high-rise dorm, sharing a room with a stranger. I can’t see this being anyone’s definition of an “ideal living situation,” but so be the nature of the college experience to make the best of it. I’ve found that my comfort in my living situation has had a direct correlation with my success level. During my freshman year, I shared a four person/ four bedroom suite with three boys from my health learning community, and while we didn’t share much in common, it was a civil living situation. Now, entering my junior, I’m embracing my love of solitude by moving into a one bedroom off-campus apartment all to myself. Getting to know yourself and how you work with others in a living situation is imperative in finding your perfect living situation. With that, even if you find yourself in a “bad” living situation, see if you can make any light of it. You might miss the time when you lived 15 feet from everyone you knew.

do not resist change

The change in myself during high school was one of night-and-day. Yet, the change in myself during my first semester was far more than high school. Being on your own, in classes that challenge your beliefs, surrounded by people you might not agree with, is going to strengthen your sense of self to allow you to become the person you’re going to grow up to be. Change might be imminent. Being in college, don’t resist the change about to come your way. These years are for your personal evolution and changing your beliefs and values might just happen. The less you resist these changes, the more enjoyable your life will be in college.

The Science of buying Textbooks FINDING CHEAP TEXTBOOKS IS EASIER THAN ONE MIGHT THINK

mia shelton ASST. OPINION EDITOR

Textbooks are a college student’s worst nightmare, if not only as a sign of classes starting, but also because of the cost. The biggest questions that are asked by every freshman about textbooks are: Where do I buy them? How much will I pay? Luckily, there are multiple places to buy textbooks. Ideally, the University wants you to purchase them at the campus bookstore, which is more convenient, but the prices are through the roof, as the University always buys new editions of the same textbooks. While this means you will be getting a much better quality textbook, the changes to the editions are not as major as you would think, with just one or two pages of new research information, or an extra chapter. You have the option of renting the books new or used. It is cheapest to rent them used, but the bookstore only has a limited supply of them, which leaves you with next cheaper option of renting them new. If you buy the book either new or used, at the end of the semester you can do a “buy back,” which is the process where the University buys the book from you for up to half the price you paid for it. However, the condition of the book is a big factor in whether they accept the book and how much you will receive for it. Most students buy their textbooks from either Amazon or Chegg, because it can be significantly cheaper. For non-textbook class materials, like novels, a good cheap place to buy them besides campus, Amazon and Chegg is a used bookstore called The Last Word. Located on North Tryon by the U-Haul/storage establishment, this bookstore carries multiple versions of various books, even some textbooks, for just a few dollars. Having had two English classes this semester, both of which had a list of 15 books to buy, “The Last Word” had more than half of them. It also helps economically when you look at your class syllabi and see exactly when you need each book to give you time to plan and even save a little money.

6

Another popular choice among students is Gray’s Bookstore, located across the street from campus by John Kirk Rd. Many times, students may find most of their class materials there for a much cheaper price than the campus bookstore. Gray’s combines the convenience of the bookstore with the economics of Chegg, making it a student favorite. A big thing to determine when it comes to textbooks is whether or not you need them. Some teachers have the textbook listed as just an alternative resource besides lecture material. This means that the book has either the same or

a little more extensive information the teacher is giving you in lecture or in class notes, but it isn’t really a required or a dire need for the class. Many people have spent hundreds of dollars on textbooks they never end up using, so be mindful of that. The best suggestion would be to wait at least a week or so, attend the classes and monitor how often the teacher refers to the textbook and the material. This will determine whether or not you even need to spend the unnecessary money.

student union guide Take a look at one of the most highly trafficked buildings on campus

NT FILE PHOTO

stephanie trefzger STAFF WRITER

According to the online site bestcollegevalues.org, UNC Charlotte has the sixth best student union in the country. Not to brag, but it is pretty great. Because the union is the most central part of campus, it is highly trafficked by both student organizations and individual students who want to meet friends. For whatever you need, chances are that Student Union is the place you’ll find it.

Dining

Stereotypes of the “broke college student” are true, so is the “freshman 15,” and students should have no fear of going hungry on UNC Charlotte’s campus. As a requirement, every resident on campus must have some kind of meal plan that they will be able to use in restaurants on campus. Crown Commons, the Union’s dining hall, is the place for students who love variety. The buffet-style dining hall offers everything from a pizza bar, salad bar, and a grill

which offers burgers and fries, to a soup section, international foods section, and extensive dessert options. Bistro 49, found on the second floor of the union, offers a more gourmet take on-campus dining. For around $14 per meal, students have access to made-to- order meals made from local and fresh ingredients and prepared by experienced cooks, delivered by servers If a student is running late or is in the mood for something of the fast food variety, the first floor of the union is the place to go. In addition to full-service franchise Wendy’s, Bojangles, and Starbucks, the Union is also home to Einstein Bros. Bagels, great for breakfast and lunch.

Entertainment

The Union is a great place to go to meet up with friends. One of the best places for this is the movie theater, which is free for students

and only $2 for their guests. The theater shows recently-released movies three times a day from Thursday through Sunday and has a concession stand for all popcorn and candy needs. It is also available to reserve for student organizations throughout the week. For those who like to see unique art created by students, the union is also home to one of the many art galleries on campus. Norm’s, a gaming space complete with pool tables, card tables, and televisions, is also found on the first floor of the union.

Retail

Outtakes is an on-campus convenience store great for more onthe-go type snacks. While offering a variety of healthy snacks such as fruits and granola bars, they also sell foods meant to satisfy cravings such as ice cream and ramen. UNCC’s Barnes & Noble location is known to most students, as the place to purchase and pick

2016

up textbooks they need for class. However, it also stocks Niner merchandise, snacks, magazines, and books to read for fun. In a small hallway next to Barnes & Noble are a number of other useful services including UNC Charlotte’s on-campus hair salon. Its licensed professionals are experienced in everything hairrelated that anyone could need regardless of hair length, texture, or density. Across from the hair salon is the NinerTech Computer Store, which is the place to go for computer repairs and accessories. The store often offers special deals for students who buy their laptops from them. And no need to stand in long lines at the post office anymore, because Campus Station is an official US Passport processing station. They take those annoyingly specific passport photos and fax out all of the necessary documents for a flat rate.

Dining on campus THERE’S NO SHORTAGE OF PLACES TO EAT AT UNC CHARLOTTE

nick cropper NEWS EDITOR

For a new student, the sheer number of dining options on campus can be overwhelming. With all these options, it can be tempting to buy as much as possible. It is important to choose a meal plan that is correct for your eating habits and to find a good mix of eating at restaurants and at dining halls. UNC Charlotte has two dining hall options: South Village Dining Hall (SoVi) and Crown Commons. SoVi is the newest dining addition to campus. It is located next to the freshman highrises and features several options for students. SoVi contains a more traditional cafeteria, which offers several food choices for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and the menu’s theme changes daily. SoVi also has a Denny’s located inside called The Den. The Den is open until 12 a.m., making it one of UNC Charlotte’s few late night dining options. Crown Commons is located on the second floor of the Student Union. It is similar to SoVi in that it serves different selections for breakfast, lunch and dinner. However, Crown is slightly smaller than SoVi and has less food stations because of its size. There are a few other dining options located in the Student Union, as well. There is a Wendy’s, which is open until 1:30 a.m., a Bojangles and Bistro 49, which offers more of a luncheon experience. There is also an Einstein Bros. Bagels and a Starbucks for those students with early morning classes.

chicken sandwich. There is also a Feisty’s located next to Chick fil-A. On the top floor of Prospector are more restaurants, including: Salsarita’s, offering fresh Mexican food; Mondo Subs, preparing sandwiches to order; a Mama Leone’s, serving pizza and pasta; and Za’tar, serving up Mediterranean cuisine. The Cone Center is located next to J. Murrey Atkins Library and has several fast food options. There you’ll find a Subway, Panda Express and Panda Sushi. All of these restaurants tend to get pretty busy during typical eating hours. UNC Charlotte offers freshman several meal plan options. All freshman living on campus are required to purchase a meal plan with their housing agreement regardless of where they are staying. Meal plans consist of a swipe amount and a Declining Balance (DB). Different dining options on campus either require a meal swipe to use or can be paid for using your DB. Dining halls require the use of meal swipes while DB can be used to pay at restaurants. However, there is a meal plan that offers students an unlimited number of meal swipes at the cost of having less DB than normal. Be aware that DB does not carry over to the next semester. If you have money remaining in your DB at the end of the semester, it is better to spend it than to let it go to waste. Meal plans for the fall semester are also automatically renewed for the spring semester.


Student organizations YOU CAN MAKE FRIENDS AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE COMMUNIT Y

casey aldridge OPINION EDITOR

If you’re coming to college straight out of high school, chances are you’re leaving a lot of friends behind. Sure, you’ll stay in touch and visit your old friends from time to time – or maybe you won’t, and that is more than OK. But getting to college for the first time can be daunting, especially because you may know just a handful of people – or no one at all – on a campus of over 27,000 undergraduate and graduate students. Some of you likely were friends in high school with people you’d known since kindergarten or

national culture. These are the things that friendships, or at least acquaintanceships, are founded upon. With that in mind, student organizations are a great way to integrate yourself into communities with whom you share similar interests and backgrounds. From this foundation, it will be easier to branch out and make friends with whom you share little. UNC Charlotte offers hundreds of studentled organizations on campus that are active in

Deep friendships had time to grow, and four years of college may seem too short to connect with anyone the same way. But it isn’t, and finding a supportive group of friends is absolutely within your power. Good friendships are based on dialogue, and dialogue is based on subjects.

There are political organizations spanning the political spectrum, not limited to College Democrats or College Republicans, but also encompassing the Feminist Union and Young Adults for Liberty. From a spiritual side, there are a number of Christian groups on campus, as well as the Muslim Students Association or Hillel or the Baha’i Campus Club. Students also run a chapter of the Student Secular Alliance as an

alternative. If you’re looking for friends who share a background but not necessarily the same beliefs, the multicultural organizations under the Multicultural Resource Center may be a good place to turn. UNC Charlotte has a Black Student Union, Native American Student Organization, Palestinian-American Cultural Club, an LGBT network known as SPECTRUM, a Latin American Student Organization and a plurality of other ethnic, national and languagebased cultural groups. If you’re looking to “get moving” with friends, the campus Bollywood team Adaa or step team My Sister’s Keeper may be your thing. These are just two of several offered dance and performance-based clubs. You can also join a sports group like the Running Club or a more organized club team ranging widely from cricket to Quidditch. Want to make friends out of the spirit of giving back to the Charlotte community, there is a wealth of groups doing just that. Habitat for Humanity is a frequently active group, and Charlotte Dance Marathon is entering its third year of organizing an all-night dance event to raise money for Levine Children’s Hospital. UNC Charlotte offers so many clubs based on so many interests, including film, environmentalism and Model United Nations, or pre-professional tracks geared towards your prospective career field. These are a great way to network not only to make friends, but also to have a support base of people living and working around the world in your field long after college. If not a single one of the hundreds of existing groups appeals to you, you can always start your own by visiting the Student Government and Organizations Complex on the second floor of the Student Union. Or, you can visit OrgSync for the complete list of active organizations at UNC Charlotte.

living with a roommate 101 Use these tips to make the most of your rooming assignment hunter heilman EDITOR-IN-CHIEF

Coming into UNC Charlotte, chances are that most, if not all of you, will have at least one roommate or suitemate to live with, whether you want to or not. In no world is this ever really an “ideal” living situation, but with the right mindset, plan and communication skills, it’s quite easy to make sure that your living situation isn’t miserable at all. Follow these tips and you’re sure to sail right through living with your best friend or a stranger.

doN’T BE GRoSS

DoN’T BE A KLEPTo

Sorry to tell you, but “borrowing” something without asking is stealing, whether you intended on returning it or not. Always ask permission from your roommate if you can use something of theirs. Always return it in a timely and efficient fashion in the exact same condition is was given to you in. Your roommate is doing you a favor, don’t disrespect them by not respecting their personal property.

You’re an adult, clean after yourself. No one wants to come back to their dorm to find that the room has been trashed because you decided you didn’t feel like washing dishes or throwing garbage where it actually should go. Your room doesn’t have to look like a Martha Stewart catalog, but a consideration for cleanliness and hygiene is imperative in sharing a space with someone. Your room might be a wreck at home, but a dorm is different world

be openminded

UNC Charlotte is a very diverse community with students from every walk of life. You might room with someone from a country you’ve never heard of before, or with someone who is a member of the LGBTQ+ community, or a student of the Sikh religion. When sharing a space with people different than you, mutual respect, open-mindedness and a willingness to learn is key to creating a safe and comfortable space for everyone in the living situation. Do not ever make anyone feel guilty about who they are in their own life.

What happens when you or your roommate break one of these rules, or does something that upsets the other? You communicate. Failing to discuss the issues between you and your roommate not only doesn’t help the situation, it worsens it when the inevitable gossip train pulls into town. It might be awkward, but the discourse you will have with your roommate from the conflict resolution will make things better in the long run. Don’t let the discussion turn into an argument, try to hear both sides of the story and be willing to compromise and things will go swimmingly.

Don’t shut yourself out

It’s rare that you’ll end up being best friends with your roommate, but don’t be afraid to socialize with them, you might find more in common with them than you think. TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

Whether you’re studying for an exam or writing a research paper, the library is an essential resource for students

learn to love atkins library diane gromelski COPY EDITOR

Some Niners may claim that the Student Union is the hub of activity on campus, but any student who has visited the J. Murray Atkins Library on a busy weekday knows that it rivals the union as a space for both academic and social engagement. While the library has traditionally been a dispenser of books, Atkins Library has adapted to meet the wide range of needs at UNC Charlotte by offering study space, access to technology and a number of online resources that are essential for academic success in college. One of the more important features of Atkins Library is the nearly 75,000 books the library owns, either in the form of an e-book or a physical book. Students can check out an unlimited number of books at one time and can reserve books for up to a week through the library catalog. The loan period for undergraduate students is 21 days and 60 days for graduate students, after which the students will be charged an overdue fee.

Unlike many college libraries, Atkins Library offers a wide range of variability in study spaces so students can choose whether they would like a silent room or a busier, noisier environment. The upper level floors generally have fewer people and are ideal if you need a quiet place with no distractions. The ground level is perhaps the most frequented floor of the library as it is a friendly, modern space with abundant study rooms and Peet’s Coffee, where students can interact whether it is studying for a major exam or having a chat over coffee. Also popular are the first, second and third floors where

Niners can access one of the more than 200 computers Atkins Library offers for student use, including Mac and PC desktops and laptops. Laptops can be checked out for 24-hour periods and are nonrenewable as students must wait at least four hours until they can check out another laptop once they turn one in to the circulation desk. The number and type of computers available are displayed on the main page of the library website. Also displayed is the number of group study rooms on the ground, first and second floors, which students can rent using the “Services” tab on the main page. These rooms can fill up quickly, particularly during finals week, so it is important to reserve the rooms at least a few days in advance. Open from Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., the 10th floor is home to the special collections and archives division of the library where students can find articles and artifacts, mostly focused on the history of the school and surrounding area.

Students cannot check out items found on the 10th floor. One of the most important library services Atkins offers to students is access to a number of online databases, including broad category sites like JSTOR and EBSCOhost as well as subject specific databases. These databases are the go-to place for up-to-date information on any subject on which you have a research paper or project and can be accessed through the library website. In college, it is important to develop research skills using databases because the articles they contain are peer-reviewed unlike most of the information that can be found in a Google search. Many Niners fail to take advantage of these vital resources until they are upperclassmen, but what they may not realize is that access to databases can cost thousands of dollars, which they are paying for in tuition anyway. Atkins Library also employs 12 subject librarians who specialize in a set of related topics. They typically have an extensive background and can help students and faculty locate appropriate academic resources online or in the library. Students can use the library website’s page on subject librarians to identify the specialist in their field of study and can reach the librarian in person at the research desk on the first floor, or by live chat, email, phone or text.

PARKING ON CAMPUS IS MESSY IF YOU DON’T KNOW THE RULES

WITH COUNTLESS OPPORTUNITIES AVAILABLE, SGA OFFERS UP A TASTE OF EVERY THING nick cropper NEWS EDITOR

The Student Government Association (SGA) at UNC Charlotte functions as a voice for the students. These student representatives are chosen by the students to represent them for the campus. It is a great way for students to get involved on campus and to become more knowledgeable of issues affecting students. SGA is broken down into three branches: executive, legislative and judicial. The Executive Branch consists of the offices of the Student Body President, the Vice President, the Executive Cabinet and the Class Presidents. The Student Body President and Vice President for the 2016-2017 school year are seniors Fahn Darkor and Carrie Nowell. The legislative branch is responsible for the passing of

legislation that affects campus. The branch is also responsible for approving new student organizations on campus and fulfilling grant requests to organizations. Senators are also chosen by students to represent them in the different colleges on campus. Each college has a certain number of seats depending on the enrollment numbers in that college. The different colleges are the Belk College of Business, College of Arts & Architecture, College of Computing and Informatics, College of Education, College of Human Health and Services, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, William States Lee College of Engineering and University College. There are also at-large seats for senators to fill. Furthermore, senate is broken

Students interested in joining senate must meet certain requirements and must complete a few steps to be considered. More information can be found on the SGA’s website at https://sga.uncc. edu/home.

avoid the freshman 15 Stay fit by checking out these places to exercise on campus jasmine taylor MANAGING EDITOR

We all have heard about the awful freshman 15 myth. In actuality, according to various research studies only about 10 percent of college students gain 15 pounds. The average weight gain is from two to six pounds. The freshman 15 is more of alliterative allure than anything else, rather than being a scientific fact. Going to college changes everything, and the first thing typically affected are students’ eating habits. From piling on all your favorite foods in the dining halls to fast food restaurants on campus that can be paid with your declining balance; and the late night study sessions fueled with caffeine and salty/sugar snacks to get you through. With all the stress of adjusting to school, class assignments, homesickness and part-time jobs, stress eating might come into play. There are a few simple steps to make sure you are not affected by F15.

1. Don’t miss breakfast

Eating breakfast is an essential part of your day. Breakfast gets your metabolism going and provides your brain and muscles energy for the day’s activities. Try to sit and eat at one of the dining halls for a nice meal, and opt for things like turkey bacon, egg whites, waffles with light to no syrup and fruit. And if you are on the go, grab some fruit, low-fat granola bars, toast, bagel, yogurt or breakfast sandwiches. Avoid sugary cereals as a breakfast meal option.

2. Portion control

For all of your meals throughout the day you should keep moderation in mind. For lunch and dinner, consider foods that are baked, grilled, steamed or broiled to minimize your fried food intake. Choose a side of fries, not a plateful and eat 1-2 slices of pizza with a side of veggies or salad. You can still enjoy your favorite foods, just all in moderation.

BELK GYM’S REOPENING WILL HELP TO ALLEVIATE THE CROWDS EXPERIENCED AT THE STUDENT ACTIVITY CENTER. NT FILE PHOTO

3. Making your way through campus

UNC Charlotte is a large campus, which is great for ways to keep off those extra pounds. For example, while going through campus, try to pick up the pace with your walking to get your muscles working and a little workout. And choose to use the stairs in buildings rather than relying on the elevator. Investing in a bicycle or skateboard to get you through campus is another way to stay fit. UNC Charlotte also has two fitness centers on campus that are free for all students to

SURVIVAL GUIDE

2016

enjoy free workout equipment, intramural sports, group fitness classes, and personal training for a fee.

4. Getting some rest

Getting enough sleep is a good way to maintain a healthy life. Sleep will strengthen memories or practice skills learned while you were awake, which is beneficial for those studying. A good night’s rest consists of at least six to eight hours of sleep. Learn how to manage your time to make sure that you get some rest. If you keep these key steps in mind, you will be successful in your college journey.

Students are randomly put into groups, and each group will be given a day and time to move in. It is important to arrive early and be prepared for any delays or complications that might occur. There will be a system in place for families to pull their cars into the drop off areas,

20

unload their things and take them inside. There will be volunteers to help carry belongings to rooms, and resident advisors will be there to help in any way they can. Before move-in day, UNC Charlotte students are told who they will be roommates with. Try to get in touch with this person through Facebook, Twitter or some other medium before move-in day. Get to know this person and coordinate who brings what. There is no point in having two microwaves. This will also give a good idea of whether it would be wise to request a change in roommates. There are two move-in days throughout the school year, one for the fall semester and another for the spring semester. Unless students request a new room at the end of the semester, that is where they will stay for the remainder of the year. Plan for the semester, not the entire year. When winter break comes around, students will have the opportunity to take home items and bring them back or just leave everything if they are not changing rooms. For the fall, bring jackets, sweats and anything necessary for surviving those brutal North Carolina winters. Over break, take some of those things home, and for the spring semester, bring back clothes that are better suited for warmer weather. This might seem obvious, but there are plenty of incoming students who overlook this. Also, for those who are able and live near UNC Charlotte, bring only the essentials on move-in day. This will drastically reduce the amount of time you spend moving in and the number of trips up and down the elevator. Bring in more things over the weekend. Many students return home for the weekend, so there should be no problem bringing in the last of your possessions throughout the next few weekends after move in. However, out of state students are out of luck and will simply have to endure bringing everything they need on move-in day. A slightly more exclusive option would be to have an early move-in day. Many UNC Charlotte clubs and organizations allow their members to settle into their residence

NT FILE PHOTO hall before the first official move-in day. This is because certain clubs and organizations require that their members be on campus for training or other beginning of the year activities. For students who plan on joining an organization, ask if they offer this service. It is a great advantage to any student who wants to avoid the hassle of moving in at the same time as hundreds of other students.

three reasons to go to a 49er football game

kathleen cook SPORTS EDITOR

A new school year also means a new football season. The Charlotte football program got its start with practices in 2012 and played their first game the fall of 2013. Though the football program is still in its early stages, the team is rapidly growing. Last year was the squad’s inaugural Conference USA season and this year is the first bowl-eligible year for the Niners. While the football team is spending the summer preparing to take on its first bowl-eligible season, here are three reasons why you should come out and support your Niners

Tailgating

Around 8 a.m. on game day, students can be found pitching tents, placing cornhole boards and setting up food in anticipation of the crowd that will arrive in a few short hours. The tailgating scene is one that is quickly escalating with crowds growing with each game. Students from all different groups can be found hanging out in the ‘sand lot’ before each game – from frats to church groups all walks of life are represented. The ‘sand lot’ refers to the grassy patch behind the alumni pavilion along the walkway to the stadium. Just follow the sound of the thumping base – you can’t miss it. As long as you

22

are decked out in your best Niner apparel, you will be sure to fit right in.

Atmosphere

In addition to joining C-USA last season, the Niners added lights to Jerry Richardson stadium. The lights allowed Charlotte to have the full football experience with the first night game on Sept. 26 against Florida Atlantic. With the addition of lights fans are allowed a full day experience instead of the early mornings that noon kickoffs call for. Another new sight for Niner fans last season was the presence of an entire marching band dubbed the “Pride of Niner Nation.” Prior to the full-fledge band, Charlotte fans were entertained by the drum line, but the full out marching band exudes college football. The band gives the fans a great show before and after the game, as well as musical interludes during the game. The lights and band only added to the already amazing atmosphere available at the games. The job done by the marketing and athletic departments to games have really paid off and created a stellar scene at each home game.

Bowl Eligibility

For the first time in school history the football team is eligible for a bowl game.

The team has done major preparations to put themselves in position to be playing in December. This past offseason, Charlotte received their first four-star recruit in FIND OUT. They also received starting quarterback Kevin Olsen as a mid-year transfer from a California community college. Returning from last season is junior running back Kalif Phillips. Phillips was ranked fifth in C-USA rushing yards with 961 yards last season, he also made second team all-conference. Joining Phillips on the field for the last time is wide receiver Austin Duke. Duke has led the 49ers in receiving yards with over 2600 career yards. He has played in all 34 of the program’s football games. When this new talent is paired with the seasoned veterans on the Charlotte team, the outlook is bright for the Charlotte football team. The team can always be found on the sidelines each Saturday, and you should always be found in Jerry Richardson too. In order for a team to succeed, they must have support from their peers. With such a young program, it is exciting to experience it grow. Students need to make it a priority to support the boys of fall during the first few weeks of school.

q&A with campus police chief baker THE UNC CHARLOTTE POLICE DEPARTMENT IS DEDICATED TO MAINTAINING A CRIME-FREE CAMPUS sara carson STAFF WRITER

Founded in 1970, UNC Charlotte’s Department of Police and Public Safety wasn’t always what it is today. The department now has six different divisions: the patrol division, criminal investigation division, community policing coordinators, bicycle officers, cross-trained SWAT officers and administrative officers. Currently, the department has 50 sworn officers, six to 15 of which are on-duty during the academic year at any given time. UNC Charlotte’s officers, however, haven’t always had the same jurisdiction as county and state officers. It wasn’t until 1984 that officers in the department became state certified. What feature offered by the department do you think is most underutilized by students, and how can it be better utilized? By far, the newest addition to safety for our students is the LiveSafe App. This app provides our community with the ability to directly contact the UNC Charlotte Police Emergency Tele-Communicator by phone or text. It will also locate the caller offering our officers the exact location of a student needing help. There are many other fantastic options for safety provided by this unique app. We are hoping that the entire campus

community will download the safety app for their personal security. The UNC Charlotte Police & Public Safety is a state authorized police department focused on crime prevention, dedicated to protecting the welfare and safety of the university and committed to building strong campus and community partnerships that support and advance the research and educational goals of UNC Charlotte. The ongoing collaboration of our dedicated law enforcement officers and members of the campus community allows us to better respond to the needs of those we serve, and we encourage any input that will assist us in building a culture of safety. To maximize your academic experience, we encourage you to make choices that will ensure your personal protection. Please feel free to visit our website for more valuable safety tips. What do you think is the most common misconception students have about the department, and how can it be clarified? That’s a great question. I think the most common misconception is a belief that we are security guards and not sworn and state certified police officers. We are no different than the Charlotte Mecklenburg Police

What is some advice you can offer students to feel safe in their first year at the university? Students and people should minimize their personal risks in life. We have a very safe campus and our administration has invested a great deal of monetary resources to ensure individual safety. It’s critical to remember why you are attending a university. Be sure to download LiveSafe and keep your valuables secure. Avoid substance abuse; it’s no secret that alcohol and drugs negatively impact many life experiences. Many students are reluctant to report crimes they’ve either witnessed or endured themselves. What can you tell students to make them feel comfortable about reporting a crime? We are a highly skilled police department that focuses on success. We want to ensure that students are able to pursue their academic dreams in a safe environment. We will assist each and every student in an effort to resolve a situation they are faced with. We are also a very diverse police department and reflect our community.

watch where you park

PARKING ON CAMPUS IS MESSY IF YOU DON’T KNOW THE RULES

NAVIGATING THE MANY AVAILABLE ON-CAMPUS PARKING OPTIONS stephanie trefzger STAFF WRITER

One of the biggest concerns for students and their parents upon move-in is parking. There is a lot of information to learn surrounding parking such as which passes to get and where to park. With a student population of 28,000 that is only growing, it may seem that finding parking is impossible, but thanks to tips from the dedicated people at the Parking and Transportation Services (PATS), the inevitable pain of parking is short-lived. Parking permits are required to park on campus and are best ordered online at pats.uncc.edu to avoid long lines. There are seven different types of permits, but the two most common are the resident pass for those who live on campus and the commuter pass for those who commute to campus every day. Prices are available on the PATS website. There is no sugarcoating it, the ideal parking space is hard to find, so it is advised that students plan out their schedule to find parking closest to the building where their classes are. The “good” parking lots, the East Decks, Union Deck, West Deck and the lots closest to them tend to fill up quickly and early, usually by 8:45am. Don’t fret if those lots do happen to be full, though. Students can park in areas toward the edges of campus and take the shuttle in. According to their website, “lesser used” areas include the lower level of Lot 6 (on Cameron Boulevard near Campus Edge Apartments) which is on the Rt. 50 Red Line,

24

PARKING IN A LOT WITHOUT THE CORRECT PARKING PERMIT CAN RESULT IN AN EXPENSIVE TICKET.

or the back end of Lot 5 or 5A near Martin Village, where a path through the gardens takes you straight to McEniry. A school this size gets a good number of visitors. There are five visitor decks on campus: Cone Visitor Deck, Union Visitor Deck, Visitor parking at East Deck 1, Visitor parking at South Village Deck (Level 1 Only), and Visitor parking at CRI Deck 1. Currently, visitor lots are $1 per half hour and a maximum amount of $10 per visit per day, but prices are subject to change. For shorter visits, there is metered parking in many areas all around campus.

Metered parking is limited and fills quickly. Meters cost 50 cents per 15 minutes and accept nickels, dimes, and quarters only. Payby-space parking is available in Lot 4, Lot 30 (time limited), and Lot 28 (ADA only). Pay-by-space stations accept coins (nickels, dimes, quarters, and $1 coins) and credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express). While PATS are nice enough to provide students with parking tips, they are also the ones who enforce the rules, patrolling the parking decks and lots. Anyone found not obeying the stated rules will find themselves

A PRODUCT OF STUDENT NINER MEDIA

with a citation and a fine and maybe even a boot. Failure to pay the fines will have further consequences. While appeals are granted, it is rare and under only special circumstances. Lack of knowledge of the parking rules is not grounds for an appeal, so keep in mind that parking may be limited and change during game days and special events or even around construction work. Plan ahead and arrive early to save the trouble of being late. More information about PATS, parking permits and parking in general can be found at pats.uncc. edu


Managing money KNOW THE INS AND OUTS OF BUDGETING MONEY FOR A PROSPEROUS YEAR mia shelton ASST. OPINION EDITOR

You’re finally free. You are a new college student ready to take on new challenge amd experience new people, places and things. But, in order to have all that experience, you need to know how to manage your money properly. Be smart with how you spend your money. First and foremost, you need to buy necessities: food, books, school supplies, etc. Get your own priorities striaght before jumping in. Books are the first things you are going to have to buy. Buy your books cheaply wherever you can at the cheapest price or the best convenience. Find out whether you even need to buy the book because nothing is worse than spending hundreds of dollars on a book and you don’t even need it. Food is the second most expensive thing you will spend your money on. There are tons of on-campus dining locations and there are even more off campus restaurants close to campus, like Toppers Pizza, Chipotle, Papa John’s, Jersey Mike’s. However, try not to dine out frequently because you will run out of options very quickly. I suggest cooking your own food if possible and utilizing your residence hall’s kitchens if you can. It is much cheaper to make big ‘one-pot wonders’ that you can eat and have lots of left overs than to

buy Chick-fil-A and Chipotle every day of the week. School supplies are yet another expenditure, but they are not a huge portion of your budget if you know where and how to buy them. It is better to buy things in bulk for a number of reasons, as it’s cheaper and you get more quantity. There are plenty dollar stores in the area, so you can buy smaller quantities and at a lower price than the ‘Back to School’ sales at Walmart and Target. After you get your necessities out of the way, you can have your luxuries like additional clothing, shoes, jewelry and other miscellaneous things. I know how easy it is to go hang out with your friends at the mall and blow all your money, but that is a recipe for disaster. Something unexpected always happens to mess up that “perfect” plan. If you drive, you need gas to get to and from your destination, adding more to your expenses. It’s okay to splurge every now and then on luxuries, but do your best to keep it to a minimum. Don’t go crazy with the frivolities. Set aside money for a rainy day or an emergency, you never know when you’re going to need this money and having it ready comes.

PARKING ON CAMPUS IS MESSY IF YOU DON’T KNOW THE RULES

FIND OUT WHETHER GREEK LIFE IS FOR YOU

carmen westra COMMUNITY EDITOR

UNC Charlotte is a large university with over 27,000 students. There are 170 undergraduate and graduate programs and over 350 student organizations offered on campus. But with all of those organizations and decision making, college can be intimidating. One type of organization on campus that is quite popular, yet controversial, is Greek life. There are multiple forms of Greek life present on campus such as Panhellenic, Independent Council, Interfraternity Council, National Pan-Hellenic Council and Diversified Greek Council. If Greek life sounds appealing to you in the slightest, to have a home away from home, or the idea of having brothers or sisters connected by a bond, then I highly encourage looking into Greek life at UNC Charlotte. It is important to consider all of your options when deciding what organization to become a part of. My personal experience was different than that of some members of the Greek community. I prefer to think that my organization chose me, rather than the other way around. My first semester at UNC Charlotte, I was automatically in the mindset that I was not going to go Greek, I did not even plan on looking into it. All of the friends I had made so far were completely against Greek life and had no desire to join either. As my first semester

was coming to an end and recruitment was over for the fall semester, I remembered one friend in class that was Greek and always talked about how much she loved her organization. As I talked to her more about her organization and what it had to offer, I realized that the people that I was surrounding myself

met. Learning about their philanthropy and values motivated me to be a better person and student. I wanted to do more and be involved to make the most of my time at UNC Charlotte. After a week of hanging out with the women of the organization, I was offered

with were not wanting the same things that I did, they were not the most motivated and did not care about making a difference at UNC Charlotte. One day, I met my friend’s sisters that she had always talked about at a new member event. As I met them, I felt a rush of love and acceptance that was amazing. I had never felt so comfortable around so many people that I had just

an invitation to join their organization. I was so excited to accept. To this day, that has been one of the most rewarding decisions I have ever made. My experience with my organization was so amazing because I was able to meet all of the women in the organization and freely make a decision for myself on how I felt about it. After that, many of my other close friends decided to

2016

go Greek as well, but had many reservations on why they did not want to join. One of the concerns that they had pertained to the funds to afford Greek life and everything that encompassed it. It is important to take into consideration everything that comes from a sisterhood or brotherhood. What are you actually paying for? Friends, social experiences, events? Actually in most cases, the money is so that the organization can have philanthropy events, raise money, recruit new members, and so much more. Every organization has a price whether it be time, money, or commitment. You get what you put into it so going in with an open mind and positive attitude will speak volumes. Remember that Greek life is not for everyone, but you will never know unless you try. Go out and meet people to see which organizations will help you grow into a better person. It’s not always about the quantity in the organization, but also about the quality of the members. My experience is one that I will never forget and something that I would not trade for the world. I love the members of my organization so much and they have helped me through so many stressful times in my life. Without it, I would not have met my best friends today and my sisters for life.

a bright Future for Charlotte Basketball trevor wilt SPORTS EDITOR

The Charlotte 49ers men’s basketball team will be in their second season under head coach Mark Price. They hit the court in late October for their Basketball Madness to kick off the 2016-2017 season. Just two months into school, the 49ers will be high flying with dunk contests, three point contests, and more fun games at Dale F. Halton Arena, looking to show off their talents and introduce the returning and upcoming players for the next season. Charlotte will be returning eight players from last season’s team that made it to the second round of the Conference USA tournament. After a big piece to the puzzle Joseph Uchebo has graduated, Price will look to new players and also guys from last year’s bench to play a vital role in picking up big rebounds, following in Uchebo’s record breaking rebounding season. The 49ers are bringing in a lot of big bodies to help fill that open spot, one being a 7-foot-1 center from Sweden, Lukas Bergang, who received a redshirt for the 2015-2016 campaign. Also, Charlotte will bring in coach Price’s son, Hudson Price, who sat out last year after he transferred from Texas Christian University (TCU). He has the ability to shoot the long ball and also help out in

the rebound department with his 6-foot-7 body frame. Austin Ajukwa, a transfer from Clemson, will be available at the start of the second semester due to NCAA transfer rules. Ajukwa possesses the ability to shoot the long ball and also soar high above the rim for some rim-rattling dunks. The 49ers are returning high-flying An-

drien White and also Jon Davis in the backcourt for the 49ers, two sophomores that last year in their freshman season, tore up the backcourt while showing positive signs for a bright future with Charlotte. White made 67 three-point shots last season, setting the record for the most threes in a single-season in Charlotte freshman history. Davis, coach Price’s first ever recruit, played almost every minute of every game as the point guard for the 49ers, continuing to show off fancy passes and the ability to score at the rim as good as any point guard in the conference. Charlotte has already added two players out of high school who have officially signed their letter of intent, one being Quinton Jackson Jr. and the other one being Najee Garvin. Jackson is a 6-foot3 guard who will likely compete for the starting job in his freshman season. As coach Price snagged Jackson from over 25 other Division I basketball teams that were offered to him in high school. Garvin is a 6-foot-7 2-star recruit from Lexington, S.C. who will compete for the starting job as well right out of the gate, being able to pull down big rebounds and score very well around the basket.

Charlotte Soccer’s High Hopes for 2016 Season trevor wilt SPORTS EDITOR

Coming off of a 11-6-3 record last season, the 49ers pre-season, nationally ranked soccer team is excited to bring back a lot of their key players from last year’s team to push for an even better record and better ending to a hard-fought season. Last season, Charlotte took down Radford in the first round of the NCAA tournament, but fell short to Wake Forest in the final minutes to get bumped in the second round. The 49ers have made five straight NCAA tournament appearances coming into the 2016 campaign, returning a lot of key play-

ers who look forward in keeping the winning tradition going at Transamerica Field. One player that Charlotte will miss is Kyle Parker, who was taken No. 31 overall in the 2016 Major League Soccer draft by the Columbus Crew, becoming the most recent Charlotte player to go pro. Charlotte had multiple players receive awards for their accomplishments on the field during the 2015 season, seeing Austin Pack (GK), Matej Dekovic (D), Brandt Bronico (M), and Kyle Parker (F) earn NCCSIA All-State selections.

levine hall

THE NEW STANDARD OF UNC CHARLOTTE LIVING

diane gromelski COPY EDITOR

Levine Hall, a new residence hall geared toward honors students, is under construction and will open in late fall 2016. The building is named for longtime UNC Charlotte donors Leon and Sandra Levine and is located in South Village near the entrance of campus. While the more than 400 residents will not be required to be in an honors program, housing spaces are reserved for Levine Scholars and members of the Honors College and the building will also house the administrative offices of both the Honors College and the Levine Scholars program. Like many of the recently constructed buildings on campus, Levine Hall is designed to promote academic and social interaction among students and professors. The building will not only contain student suites and apartments, but it will also have kitchens and lounges,

36

faculty workspaces, classrooms, student study areas and seminar spaces that can be combined to host large events. Honors housing is currently located in Witherspoon Hall in North Village, isolating the primarily freshmen students that reside there from the other freshmen who live in South Village. Junior Christopher Dong, a member of the Political Science Honors Program, said he believes the transition from Witherspoon to South Village will allow honors students more opportunities to interact with other students. “As honors students, part of our role on campus is to be role models for others, and it is important for us to be visible and interact with other students in order to do that,” Dong said. “Also, it will be cool to have a space where all of the honors programs can host events and guest speakers because there isn’t currently

very much interaction between the different programs.” The Honors College has assembled a committee composed of Housing and Residence Life staff as well as students and program directors from the various honors programs on campus. The committee will provide input on logistics, programming and visiting scholars and guest speakers. The residence hall offers housing options in the form of one, two, three and four person suites, as well as four person apartments. Because students will not be able to move into the residence hall until late in the fall semester, new students will be temporarily housed in Sanford Hall while students returning to housing can either choose to stay in their current assignment or in another available room on campus.

Student success hinges on academic integrity diane gromelski COPY EDITOR

When completing assignments in college, there is nothing more important than adhering to the Code of Academic Integrity. But this can be difficult for students who are not familiar with what academic integrity means. However, all students are responsible for adhering to the code whether they understand the meaning or not. Academic integrity in college often involves plagiarism, the submission of another’s work as one’s own including using another person’s words or ideas or submitting an entire paper written by another. Though plagiarism is the most well-known version of academic integrity, there are a number of other offenses for which students can be punished. These include cheating on exams by copying another student’s test or using unapproved resources; fabricating or falsifying information; submitting substantial portions of the same work more than once; and aiding another student in an act of academic dishonesty, among other violations. Academic integrity is important not only because it can cause you to fail a course or be

kicked out of school, but also because it assures the value of every graduate’s degree; promotes academic discourse; and encourages pride in one’s work. Professors at UNC Charlotte often utilize resources like Turnitin to check the originality of students’ work, greatly increasing the likelihood that students will be caught. Turnitin is a website that can identify previously submitted work from papers turned into other academic institutions as well as information found on the Internet. If a professor suspects a student has violated the code, they will bring the student before the Academic Integrity Board (AIB). The board is composed of students and faculty who will determine whether the student is responsible and any relevant penalties. The consequences of violating the academic integrity code are based on a number of factors, but can include a formal warning, a reduced grade in the class, disciplinary suspension or expulsion from the university.

The do’s and don’ts of academic integrity

1) Don’t procrastinate: prepare for exams thoroughly and start assignments early so you don’t feel the pressure to commit academic dishonesty. 2) Do use reference managers like Zotero and Mendeley to help you create and organize your citations, but make sure to double-check them to ensure they adhere to the style guide you are using. 3) Do schedule an appointment with the Writing Resources Center at http://writing. uncc.edu/writing-resources-center if you have questions about how to properly cite a source or whether information needs to be cited. 4) Don’t allow friends to pressure you into “lending” them your work or providing them with answers on tests. If you help a friend cheat, you are just as liable under the code as the person who submits the dishonest work.

Hire-A-Niner helps students find work kathleen cook SPORTS EDITOR

The Career Center is a valuable resource that the University offers students to aid in the strenuous search for a job during school and post-grad. One of the best features of the career center is the program dubbed Hire-A-Niner. Hire-A-Niner offers students and alumni a portal to access jobs, internships and coops. The site also offers a resume creator, employer directory and the ability to report that you have been hired. To get access to the Hire-A-Niner site, start off on the University Career Center website, then plug in your NinerNet credentials. The most nifty feature on the Hire-ANiner site is the resume creator. A resume is the first thing a student should create if they are pursuing a job so they have a document to send to potential employers with all of their qualifications

and experiences listed. Once logged into the Hire-A-Niner site, click the options on the bottom of the left side menu and then select “Create Resume using Resume Creator.” The program gives students 12 templates to choose from for their resume. Once a template is chosen, a screen pops up where the student can fill out all of the requested information. After all of the text is typed in, Hire-A-Niner will generate the resume for the student that is ready for them to send out to different future employers. Another feature on the website that is useful is the job search bar. This useful resource can be located across the bar on the top portion of the main page called “Job & Internship Search.” If clicked on, this will pull up a directory containing hundreds of jobs, internships and co-ops offered by UNC Charlotte and various companies around the U.S.

With this broad of a search range, students have the ability to refine their search using keyword text box at the top of the page. If a student wishes to see what companies outside the school are offering, all they need to do is click on the “Employer Directory” and view a list of over 13,000 companies and their job listings. The most likely and convenient form of communication between students and potential employers is through their UNC Charlotte e-mail. Workshops are also put on by the Career Center that give interview tips and the Center provides opportunities for students to job shadow professionals. The Career Center is a vital resource that all students need to take advantage of during their time on campus. The Career Center is located at Atkins 150, next to the Atkins Library.

healing hearts, healing minds GET TO KNOW THE SERVICES AND DETAILS OF THE UNC CHARLOTTE COUNSELING CENTER

stephanie trefzger STAFF WRITER

One inconvenient truth of life is that sometimes it gets hard for everyone, and for college students, it’s no exception. According to a study by the American College Health Association, 54 percent of students felt overwhelming anxiety over the past year and 32.6 percent of students felt so depressed that it was difficult to function. UNC Charlotte is battling this statistic partially through its Counseling Center, located on Belk Plaza. Psychologists and social workers help students better their relationships with both themselves and the people around them by encouraging them to “explore and express feelings, examine beliefs and ways of thinking about the world, reflect on patterns of behavior, and work toward making healthy changes.” There are a few options for students who wish to partake in counseling. Students can have up to 12 free sessions, lasting for 45-50 minutes of individual counseling per year, or they can join one of the many weekly group counseling sessions in which they can meet for about an hour and a half with a counselor and

other students to discuss topics such as stress, academic success, and dealing with family issues. The UNC Charlotte counseling center also offers relationship counseling, where couples can meet to improve their intimate relationships. Many people fear that the things they talk about with their counselor will be shared with others, but the counseling center follows the ethical codes set forth by the American Psychological Association and the National Association of Social Workers, the laws of the State of North Carolina and federal privacy regulations. This means that everything a student shares with their counselor or their group stays confidential unless the student gives written consent. Though, there are three exceptions to the confidentiality rule: 1. If the student clearly likely to do physical harm to themselves or another person in the near future, it is the counselor’s duty to take steps to protect their safety and the safety of others. 2. If they share information about currently-occurring abuse or neglect of any juvenile(s) or disabled adult(s), the

counselor may be required by state law to report that information to the Department of Social Services. 3. If ordered to do so by a judge as part of judicial proceedings. The counselors are also dedicated to creating safe spaces for students of all backgrounds including individuals identifying as a member of the LGBTQ+ community. Diversity is very important to the staff, and according to their website, “[they] understand diversity to include, but not be limited to: race, ethnicity, language, nationality, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, ability, and socioeconomic status. [They] are committed to serving students and the campus community at UNC Charlotte by striving for social justice through increasing awareness of the effects of oppression, prejudice, and discrimination. Students can make an appointment by calling 704-687-0311. Stop by their office in the Atkins 158 building. Get more information by visiting counselingcenter.uncc.edu for more information.

perfecting time management KEEPING ON TOP OF YOUR WORK IS EASIER THAN YOU THINK WITH THESE SIMPLE TIPS

mia shelton ASST. OPINION EDITOR

As a new college student, you will have to endure a lot of new challenges, with increased workloads, multiple due dates, weekly quizzes, papers, and for some, work hours. With all that work and so little time to get it all done you might ask yourself, “how will I get it done?” Well friend, there are certain keys to college success through time management. As a person who works four jobs and goes to school full-time, this really helps out. Time management is not hard, but it requires great determination. A key component to time management is scheduling. You have to schedule your time accordingly and wisely, which means there will be very little time for parties and play dates. De-

pending on the number of courses you’re taking in the semester depends on how much free time you will have. The first step is to review you course syllabi for the semester. Each instructor will give out a syllabus on the first day of class, which often includes, but isn’t limited to grading, course overviews and more importantly a semester schedule that lays out the weekly topics, weekly required readings course assignments and due dates. These schedules will help you tremendously. However, they can also cause some issues. For example, the instructor could unfortunately add additional course work to the syllabus or omit course material. From personal experience, be ready for it. Once you have your class schedules, for those of us that work, you get your work schedule. Now, this varies because different people have different scheduling situations. Some people get their schedules on a different basis. As with classes, work schedules can also cause some issue with your time management. For example, you could have work hour changes, shift changes or even shift extensions. Once you have gotten your class and work schedules, you can now make your semester work schedule. First thing you want to do when making your schedule is not missing big assignments and their dues dates. For example: mid-terms, final exams, quizzes, papers and group assignments. Mid-terms and finals are self-explanatory, however, quizzes vary. Some instructors schedule quizzes once a week, once every two or three weeks or even the dreaded pop quizzes. Papers also vary in terms of due dates, depending on how many you have scheduled throughout the semester, which the syllabus should tell you. Group projects usually have a timetable of a month or month-and-a-half, depending on how many projects you will

Majority of required reading is weekly chapter readings, unless you are taking an English class, then you will have one novel or collected work reading a week. Once you have noted your required readings, you need to combine your major assignments, work schedule and required readings together in your planner or organizer. Now, you need to factor in studying. You should leave at least one weekday and up to 4 weekend hours free for studying. If you don’t work, increase the weekday study hours. Once you have factored in your study time to your schedule, any hours you have left is your free time.

entertainment hot spots THERE ARE NUMEROUS VENUES FOR COMEDY, ART, MUSIC AND MORE

hunter heilman EDITOR-IN-CHIEF

In a campus this big, it’s nearly impossible to ever say that you’re bored. Coming in as a new student though, you might not know the ins and outs of all the fabulous and fun entertainment hot spots scattered throughout campus.

Student union Art Gallery

Art has been said to change the world, and the Student Union Art Gallery shows this in its many different, poignant exhibits. Offering contemporary and socially relevant art pieces on a monthly basis. From LGBTQ+ history exhibits, to shows focused on comic book art. The gallery’s mission is “to create visual dialogue for student life using exhibitions as a means of expression and a learning environment.” Besides art exhibits, it also hosts Simulacra and Sanskrit exhibits annually, showcasing the many talents of student artists and writers.

Norm’s

Offering a pub-style atmosphere, with pool tables, telelvisions and live music. Norm’s offers food, friends and fun in a conveniently close location. It is right next to Outtakes on the first floor of the Student Union. Head to the Mezzanine level of the Union and you can find a quieter balcony area of Norm’s for studying, or even a better view of the musical acts when things get packed on the weekends.

After Hours

performance, it’s usually done in After Hours in the Cone Building. Talent shows, comedy shows, singles nights and more have gone down in Cone’s intimate Nightclub-like area. With tables around for dining during the day, After Hours is the perfect place to kick back with friends on a Friday night, or to laugh your head off at one of the many different comedians that come through campus.

Rowe Galleries

There’s nothing quite as pride-inducing than looking at the insane talent of your fellow UNC Charlotte students. This can be found in the Rowe Galleries, located in the Rowe Building, shaped like a camera, on Belk Plaza. Inside, you will find many different collections from various students from the Department of Art and Art History. Be on the lookout in the Rowe Galleries near the end of each semester with all of the many fabulous student showcases.

Student union Movie Theater

Being someone obsessed with movies, it’s hard to go to the movies often due to elevated ticket prices and crowded theaters. If you have some patience, you can wait for your favorite movies to arrive at the Student Union Movie Theater shortly after leaving theaters. With free admission for students and located conveniently on the first floor of the Union, Hollywood has never been so close. AT AFTER HOURS, EXPERIENCE SOME LIVE MUSIC IN A NIGHT CLUB STYLE SETTING.

passing that impossible class ON-CAMPUS RESOURCES TO MASTER EVEN THE HARDEST OF CLASSES stephanie trefzger STAFF WRITER

By now, everyone has figured out which subjects they are good at and which ones aren’t really their forte. And while it’s not fun to hear, some of those subjects will be required depending on the major the student chooses. Doing poorly in those classes is a huge source of stress for students, but there are a number of ways to alleviate that stress and do well in the class. Here are six tips to help students succeed:

answer questions. Although these hours are often appointment-only, if a student cannot make any of the times listed, they should email their professor who is more often than not willing to find a time that works for you.

al. That is when they can meet with their classmates and study together. Chances are that at least one person in the group can answer a question another group member has, and if no one has an answer, they can figure it out together. Two (or more) heads are better than one, after all. Pro tip: don’t study with best friends. While it may be fun, it’s also probably really distracting.

Take a Break and Let it out

on-Campus Resources

It may be annoying, but brains don’t work well without taking a break every once in a while. Especially during finals, students may feel the need to forgo eating and sleeping for studying, but it doesn’t work. Students who cram actually tend to remember less than students who study a little bit each night. Don’t let anyone say that it isn’t okay to cry because the stress gets to everyone, and as Shrek says, “better out than in.”

UNC Charlotte cares about their students’ successes. They therefore have set up a number of on-campus resources that students can utilize should they come across a difficult subject or class. The University Center for Academic Excellence, as its name suggests, is dedicated to helping students excel. In addition to offering tutoring services for a wide selection of classes, the UCAE also “provides academic support services and resources that increase learning effectiveness.” Additionally, the University Writing Resource Center can help those struggling with an essay edit it as well as help students improve their writing skills.

People like to say that they don’t need to write things down and that they can remember everything. However, this is usually not true. Especially once students start participating in clubs or sports, assignments are sometimes forgotten. What really helps with this is a planner and planning out the day in the morning. This ensures that nothing is forgotten and there is plenty of time to do everything while eliminating procrastination.

on-campus treatment available at the Health Center kathleen cook SPORTS EDITOR

College is filled with new experiences, new friends and new germs. It is very common for college students to become sick very easily during their stay on-campus. The Student Health Center is the place to go whenever you are feeling under the weather. The center’s current location was completed in 2007 and it takes up almost 32,000 square feet. Inside the center sits 21 medical exam rooms, two of which are negative pressure rooms that are used to prevent the spread of viral bacteria. The Student Health Center has services for medical care, disease prevention, wellness promotion and a wide variety of other educational resources that prove valuable for students. The staff is a knowledgable source in many different avenues of life. On hand at the center are experienced medical doctors, pharmacists, physician assistants, family nurse practitioners, a squad of nurses and a psychiatrist. There are a lot of services that are offered at the Center that are unknown to students. If a student is injured while playing a sport or has a surgical procedure that requires physical therapy, that therapy can be done on-campus at the Student Health Center, all students need is a referral from their doctor. Also located in the center is an on-site pharmacy to which students can have their prescriptions sent and their medical records will be kept. Other services offered in the center are physicals, gynecological services, birth control, STD and HIV screenings and the treatment of pain, asthma, pneumonia and injuries. X-ray machines are found

The major plus to visiting the Student Health Center is the cost, or the absence of cost. It is free for students to see a physician, physician assistant, nurse, nurse practitioner, health education consultant or physical therapist. Not everything is costless however, there are some services that have costs coupled with them. Students can make non-emergency appointments online through their Starfish accounts and prescription refills can also be made online or in person.

49er football preview WITH NEW BOWL GAME ELIGIBILITY, 49ER FOOTBALL KEEPS OUTLOOK OPTIMISTIC

kathleen cook SPORTS WEDITOR

As the practices ramp up and the autumn air brings football back to campus, here are a few things to expect from the Niners on the football field this upcoming season. The first is a new man calling the shots for the offense. Last season, Charlotte was notorious for the constant rotation they had in the quarterback position. The position was one that was up in the air during the entire off season until Kevin Olsen transferred to the Queen City for the Spring semester. Olsen was declared the official starting quarterback just days before the team would showcase their talents in the annual Green vs. White game. He got off to a bumpy start, throwing an interception for his first pass as a 49er. But after that mishap, Olsen showcased his arm finishing the night with 14 completions for 163 yards. Matt Johnson was one of the quarterbacks constantly rotating into the starter slot, but he was moved to the running back position after Olsen came into the picture. The former quarterback had a lot of adjustments to make, however he has become a natural in the position. Another player to look out for this season is Kalif Phillips. Phillips is the holder of the 49ers top eight single-game rushing yard totals and has a career total of 3,113 rushing yards, averaging 94.3 yards per game. Adding to his impressive resume, Phillips also holds the record for rushing

50

touchdowns with 38 under his belt. Stepping onto the field for his final time this season is Austin Duke. Duke signed with Charlotte in 2012 as part of the inaugural recruiting class. Duke is responsible for the only two games that a Niner has recorded 200 receiving yards. He lead the program for the first three years in receiving yards and his name is beside all of the single-game, single-season, and career records for receptions receiving yards and receiving touchdowns. One to watch on the defensive side of the ball is redshirt senior Terrance Winchester. Winchester is the all-time leader in program history in career takeaways with nine and interceptions with seven. He was tied for first place in Conference USA with four interceptions in one game during the 2015 season. The 2016 season marks the second season the Niners will be members of Conference USA and the first season they are eligible for bowl games. A lot has changed since the conception of the program in 2012 and this season 21 players

who were part of the inaugural team will be graduating. “We want to give this class every opportunity to go out on top because they took a risk on us. This class will always be real special to us because they took that risk,” Lambert said. According to senior linebacker Justin Bridges-Thompson, the bond that the team has developed is what gives them the edge over their competitors. “I think our team is growing and our team chemistry is strong. That keeps us together. We all influence each other and take it day by day,” Bridges-Thompson.

Charlotte has a few months before they make the journey to Kentucky and take on Louisville in their season-opener against Louisville Sept. 1. They return to Jerry Richardson the following weekend, Sept. 10, for their home-opener against Elon.
