Charlotte Women’s basketball has been having one of their more difficult season. A six win, 11 loss record is nothing to post on the twitter page.

Humans of UNCC Meet: Ashley Williams

UNC Charlotte represents unity and the acceptance of all. I won’t be able to ever understand why anyone would want to viciously offend another race of people. Disrespecting other races shows signs of racism, irresponsibility and immaturity and I do not stand by it. The only way to make a change is to put out […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Call Me by Your Name’ is a competently crafted, crushingly tepid romance

“Call Me by Your Name” has been on my radar for quite a long time, since its esteemed premiere at last year’s Sundance Film Festival. Queer cinema is something that excites me as a gay man, but also concerns me as we must keep the stories we tell in check, as to not sour the […]
