  1. How to have the best UNC weekend possible! If the stars aligned and everything went your way, this is how to have a perfect weekend, the Carolina Way.
    This blog post could start from Friday night all the way to Sunday night, featuring going to great restaurants, fun events with friends, and winning coveted sports games.

  2. This best thing about living on campus is the convenience of having your classes and fellow students all around you.

    So what are some ways you can make more connects with the Tar Heels living in your dorm?

    These should be tips on how to be more active in your community, some ideas for getting your hall / suite together (i.e. movie nights or cooking a dinner together), really anything you can think of!

  3. I would love to see a blog topic talking about different ways to get active on campus. I feel like many students aren’t aware of the group fitness classes at the SRC or Rams. Another cool thing to talk about is the various trails that runners (or walkers) can go on to enjoy the beautiful campus and Carolina blue sky. A discussion of different intramural sports, clubs and events going on will encourage people to stay fit. For me, it is really important to stay healthy and fit. Exercising is a great stress relief for many people and promoting these healthy behaviors would be extremely valuable to this blog.

  4. Ok this is kind of an odd request but an interesting topic to write about would be pretending that the residence halls are people and giving them human characteristics to help people decide which is best for them. It would be like living with a “friend.”

  5. Blog topic idea:
    Ask a resident
    Previous/Current residents in residence halls can honestly describe the pros and cons about the hall they are in. Gives people a better understanding of how living in those halls are and makes choosing one easier in the future.

  6. Great meals you can make in your dorm when you are tired of the dining halls!
    Could include soup, mac and cheese, ramen noodles, pizza rolls, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, cereal, etc.

  7. Lower Levels vs Upper Levels, The “Highs” and “Lows” of Floors in Residence Halls

    (i.e. what is better or worse about living on an upper level or a lower level in a dorm)

  8. My topic submission is a blog post about all the different student positions (RA, OA, etc.) related to housing, their responsibilities and how they interact with each other.

  9. It would be interesting to read a blog post about the pros and cons to staying on campus, one that actually compares real accounts from students who chose apartments vs students who stayed on campus. Either that or a blog post in which students rank different residence halls from their experiences in them.

  10. -Ways to mediate solutions among roommates, suite mates or people on the hall without involving an RA
    – Common problems that occur between roommates and how to make sure they don’t happen
    – DIY/ Cheap decoration ideas to make a dorm feel more like home (especially UNC themed decorations)
    – Clever storage ideas to make the most out of the space available in a dorm

  11. How to eat healthy in a dorm room would be such a helpful blog. I thought it would be much easier than it actually is to find foods that are healthy and can be cooked in a dorm.

  12. Lower Levels vs Upper Levels, The “Highs” and “Lows” of Floors in Residence Halls

    (i.e. what is better or worse about living on an upper level or a lower level in a dorm)

  13. A cool blog topic would be some student stoplight feature posts of various freshman students living in different first-year housing experiences. This could even go on to include upperclassmen. I know it was hard for me to know which dorm to live in for my freshman year so this would help newbies to decide which dorm they’d like to live in next year! Each blog post could include pictures of a typical room setup and different aspects of the dorm that the student enjoys.

  14. I would love to see a blog about the cool and quirky teachers on campus! It would be really fun to take a class with an especially extra professor. For example, C.J. who teaches Busi 101 has the craziest memory and makes the class so much more fun with the tidbits that he throws in.

  15. Helpful tricks to effectively organize the amount of stuff we need in a small (dorm room) space! For example, TV stand with sectioned boxes rather than just shelves (perfect for fabric box drawers) , or a semi-lofted bed with plastic drawers under for clothes, or lofting a bed just high enough to put a mini fridge or shoe racks under.
