Dorm Closures and the Chapel Hill Housing Market

I was surprised to read this headline in the Daily Tar Heel today: "University closed Stacy and Everett due to low housing enrollment." But maybe I shouldn't have been.

Stacy and Everett residence halls combined house 189 students, but this year, only 135 signed up to live there. The two dorms will be repurposed for the 2015-16 school year.

Here's some of what we're reading this week:

A Few Observations on Hillsborough's Flag Day

A work day planned for Greensboro on Saturday thankfully fell through, so I told my wife instead I would lunch at Weaver Street, then wander up to the Town Barn for the Confederate flag rally, and... would she honor me her company? She was shocked. Shocked! But, I reminded her what a gorgeous day it was, we needed lunch anyway, and wouldn't she rather meet and talk with folks she wanted to hate, to find out if they really were as loathsome as she believed? As for me, I was going to go with her or without because, as a photographer, I wouldn't miss it unless I had no other choice.

Why elect Rani Dasi to the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools Board of Education?

Education is a critical enabler of individual success and community growth. The CHCCS board serves an important role in setting policies and creating an environment that enables learning.  I would like to be one of the seven board members who influence public education in the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City School district. 

What do I bring to the table?
