Apr. 26th — Sept. 11 figures in campus discussions on heath, discrimination, and racism
The terrorist attacks on the United States and the subsequent U.S. war on terrorism were the subjects of a recent teach-in at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and were also referenced by North Carolina State University students during two recent campus events focusing on an entirely different subject, the racial climate.

Apr. 19th — Racial hypersensitivity poisons the campus climate

Apr. 12th — N.C. State to issue bonds for conference center, hotel, and golf course project
North Carolina State University is soon going into the hotel business. Construction is slated to begin this year on the Centennial Campus Executive Conference Center and hotel, which would offer 250 rooms and 29,000 square feet of meeting space, to be complemented by a 18-hole championship golf course, all built on the university's Centennial Campus.
