Feathers, Gumbo and Beads: CAB Celebrates Mardi Gras

When I heard that the highly-intense and competitive pastime of laser tag was coming to UNC Charlotte, I was of course skeptical at first. I questioned who might show up, what the event […]

On Friday Oct. 20, the Campus Activity Board hosted their Fall Talent Show in McKnight Hall, allowing 13 gifted students to take the stage and be recognized for their talents.
