The Seahawk's Top Five Picks!

Critical race theory and how it is affecting Wilmington

Over the past year, a new term has entered the political lexicon in the United States. Critical race theory, a theory in legal academia analyzing race as it relates to the framework of society, has taken on a new meaning among conservative media outlets, activists and political groups. Many claim these concepts, historically reserved for scholars, are being taught in our nation’s K-12 public schools.


REVIEW: ‘Candyman’ might be the best film of the summer

As theatrical releases have become more frequent again since the beginning of the summer, with that comes an unpredictability pertaining to the financial success of films that have gone forward with theatrical releases. “A Quiet Place Part II” and “F9: The Fast Saga” performed exceedingly well under the duress of the pandemic while studio tentpoles like  “Black Widow” and “Space Jam: A New Legacy” performed below studio expectations, which may be a result of the same-day streaming release format adopted by both Disney and Warner Bros. 


WILMINGTON, North Carolina–UNCW men’s soccer began the 2021-22 campaign with a 1-0 win over Lafayette.

However, the victory did not come easy for Head Coach Aidan Heaney and the Seahawks.

After losing its final three games in 2020 and going winless in exhibition play to start 2021, Heaney and UNCW certainly felt the heat, figuratively and literally, in the Seahawks’ season -opener on Thursday.

With the semester just getting underway, we are all excited to get back to campus after experiencing Zoom meetings and online classes. However, with the rise of the contagious delta variant, this excitement and anticipation of a normal school year are in jeopardy of a spring 2020 repeat. Therefore, UNCW should require all students to be vaccinated unless they have underlining conditions in order to ensure a normal school year and to protect those students who are unable to have the vaccination.

A recap of UNCW’s current construction projects

The University of North Carolina Wilmington (UNCW) campus continues to expand. This summer the university will add Terrapin and Loggerhead Halls, finish the film studies building, the new dining facility and work on the coastal engineering building.  

Terrapin and Loggerhead halls will be suite-style residence halls, with double, or single suites, community kitchens, and 387 rooms in each hall. They will be open for occupation in the fall of 2021.
