The Seahawk's Top Five Picks!

'Periods Don’t Stop for Pandemics’ campaign collecting menstrual hygiene products for local women

For the second year in a row, UNC Wilmington’s (UNCW) Hawks Harvest is partnering with Seeds of Healing and I Support the Girls, to collect and donate menstrual hygiene products for local women in the Cape Fear region. 

This year’s “Periods Don’t Stop for Pandemics” campaign is looking to raise awareness related to period poverty, collect new, unopened boxes of menstrual hygiene products and advocate for a repeal of the “tampon tax” in North Carolina—where there is a bill looking to do just that.  


The Gardening and 350 clubs want UNCW to divest from fossil fuels

UNCW (University of North Carolina at Wilmington) is home to many wonderful student-run organizations. Two of those organizations that have an environmental focus are the 350 Club and the Gardening Club. 

Founded in 2018, the 350 Club bases its mission on divestment. They want to encourage the university and UNCW board of trustees to divest from fossil fuels. The board of trustees currently uses endowment funds from tuition to pay for fossil fuels, and the 350 Club is working to end that practice.     


WILMINGTON, North Carolina – Ole Miss (10-5-0) and Bowling Green (6-1) are set to match up in the first round of the NCAA women’s soccer tournament on Tuesday, Apr. 27 in the UNCW Soccer Stadium.

The Rebels enter the tournament for the ninth time, their third appearance in the last four years, and will be led by First-Team All-Southeastern Conference senior Channing Foster, and the SEC Goalkeeper of the year, junior Ashley Orkus.

Moving to the beach comes with high expectations, high temperatures and most importantly, high costs. The town of Wrightsville Beach is no exception. Visitors have to pay $5 an hour to park just to shop, dine and enjoy the sun. Is that fee really worth it?  

The jump in parking costs from 2018, when it was half this amount at $2.50 an hour, is classist and exclusionary. The costs have been rising annually and reached a new high for the summer season of 2021. This needs to be reevaluated and changed for all beachgoers to enjoy this public area.
