    The passing of House Bill 2 (HB2) in North Carolina has been surrounded by controversy. Some groups have stated that the bill is designed to protect citizens of the state and therefore needs remain law. However, others believe that the bill is transphobic, homophobic, does not represent the state in the best light, and needs to be repealed. Both groups defend their positions by saying that the action they would like to see is the best course of action for the state and its citizens. Ethically, utilitarianism can be applied to the debate over what should be done with respect to HB2 in North Carolina, as it is designed to maximize the happiness of the majority. The General Assembly of North Carolina passed HB2 after a series of events began…

    Oppression is common throughout history; resistance is common, also. North Carolina finds its place in the American narrative both as a British colony and later as a state, but it has its own individuality in how that transition was made. While many fellow colonists viewed the inhabitants of North Carolina as backwards or simple, this did not impede the development of a culture that was slowly becoming more diverse and growing as immigration drastically raised the population over the course of…

    North Carolina is truly a unique breed in terms of being a state. While North Carolina was one of the original thirteen colonies, a new state after the American Revolution, and a state in the antebellum south, it has always been unique in its political footing. From the beginning, North Carolina has tried to become the best version of itself, but as the old adage says, “the more things change the more they stay the same”. This is quite an appropriate quote to describe North Carolina. Writer…

    Sadly, it was checked out until January of 2016. I didn’t even know it was possible to do so. Regardless, I was back on the search. I turned to the book The Carolina Gold Rush by Bruce Roberts.

Charlotte had its own mint mark of “c” on the coins produced. It was convenient to mint in Charlotte due to…

    have made tremendous progress for women, African Americans, and other minorities, but we are still in the midst of full rights for the LGBT community. It would be unrealistic to say that this community now has complete equality, especially when states like North Carolina pass laws allowing discrimination and refusal of treatments to the LGBT community. It is our social responsibility, as a country, to ensure the LGBT community receive the same rights and equalities that we have been pushing so…

Engineering has been and still is a male dominated field of study. Women have often been overlooked and seen as incapable of this type of work but in reality this is not true. Since NC State has a very…

In fact, the band and fans conclude each game with “Hark the Sound,” linking arms and…
