Everything you need to know about North Carolina's U.S. Senate race

There is a lot of uneasiness in anticipation of this year’s midterm elections. One of the key races to determine the makeup of the nation’s Senate will be right here in North Carolina. Senator Richard Burr is not running for reelection, which leaves an empty seat that many North Carolina Republicans and Democrats are fighting to fill. Since the Senate is split 50-50 between both parties (two Independents caucusing with Democrats), every seat counts in this election. Without a clear successor to Burr, North Carolina might become a pivotal state in November’s vote.

Currently Democrats control the White House with Joe Biden in office in 2022, as well as a majority vote in the House and Senate; however, prospective numbers for this midterm election show a lead in the Republican Party. The stakes for the U.S Senate Race are at an all-time high due to the unknowns of the future of the Senate.

Chancellor Aswani Volety on his vision for UNCW

As students settle back into life on campus, so does UNCW’s new Chancellor, Dr. Aswani Volety. On July 1, 2022, Dr. Volety returned to UNCW to serve as the university’s seventh Chancellor. Volety, who previously served in the role of Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences and Executive Director of the Center for Marine Science, brings with him decades worth of education and research experience, particularly in the field of marine science.

“I always grew up being in a coastal town, going to the beach, picking up shells, walking on the rocks. It’s something that’s always fascinated me,” said Volety on the start of his interest in marine science.

GREENSBORO, North Carolina – On Sunday, the Seahawk women’s soccer team routed the UNC Greensboro Spartans 5-1. 

The offensive explosion came in the second half, fueled by three Madison Henry goals, marking only the 8th hat trick in UNCW women’s soccer history. The junior from China Grove, NC also had an assist, which led to the first UNCW seven-point game in seven seasons.

As Olivia Wilde prepares for her sophomore feature film directorial debut with “Don’t Worry Darling,” she aspires to match, or even surpass, the extremely positive audience reaction from her first feature, “Booksmart.” However, despite Wilde’s artistic credibility, the discourse following the film’s premiere at the Venice Film Festival, both public and critical, primarily concerns the drama between the main cast and director rather than the content of the film. Although there is no specific person to blame for the complete mess that was this film’s premiere, the different scandals all lead back to one common factor: Olivia Wilde herself. Although she could be to blame for the spectacle, one can’t help but wonder if it would all be as big of a deal if the director was a man.
