Jasmine Poe popped her arm against the wooden stand as she greets six to eight members of Beauty of New Beginnings (BNB) with a hand wave. Her nails glistened with rhinestones on every other finger. With her other hand she reached into her bag to retrieve her iPhone and she clicked the side button. A bright light glared back at her. It was finally 4 p.m. and it was time to get down to business. She reserved a room in the Chavis University Center, that will now be occupied wit
For almost 40 years, the University of North Carolina at Pembroke has offered 19 Greek Life organizations on campus. The first fraternity established was Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia in 1971. Fraternities and sororities participate in service opportunities that are mission-based or support their philanthropy, such as working at a soup kitchen, raising money for breast cancer education and awareness, reading books to elementary school children and hosting events that raise awareness
There’s a common assumption that the optimal route and often only path to the professional level in sports is for an athlete to attend a Division I institution until they are eligible to declare or ascend to the next level.
Typically, when athletes from the UNC schools make it to the pinnacle of their sport, most people automatically assume the hail from the Chapel Hill, Charlotte or Greensboro campuses.

The tale of how one of UNCP’s newest walk- ons to the football team came to fruition is more than just a feel-good story to warm the hearts of readers. The journey of the program’s hungriest fullback is a true testament to the meaning of determination and the embodiment of perseverance. Tyrone Young’s hunger for the pursuit of the game is not a mere grumbling in the pit of his stomach to envelope defenders or a lingering itch to strap the pads back on, but in reality it is a
Darrell “Bubba” Wallace Jr. is just the fourth African-American driver to ever get behind the wheel of a stock car in a NASCAR race. At Daytona, Wallace became just the second African-American since 1971 to ever compete full-time in the series. Wallace’s career has been full of adversity, much like Wendell Scott’s, who became the first African American to start a NASCAR race. Prior to the start of The Great American Race, The Daytona 500, there was a lot of attention on Walla
Are the words stout, chubby, full-figured and “real women” terms that sound appealing to today’s plus size woman? Probably not. However, these are just a few of the terms used throughout history to describe the “above average-sized” woman. After several decades of semi-offensive titles, American society adapted the term plus- size after a Lane Bryant advertisement used the variation “Misses Plus Sizes” in 1922, according to the Wall Street Journal. While originally used solel
The UNCP men’s basketball team has finished the regular season as Peach Belt Conference champions for the second straight year, and it was truly a team effort from the offseason until their championship clinching win over Flagler College. The phrase “Iron sharpens iron” is derived from a famous biblical verse found in Proverbs 27:17, in which it says: “As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another”. This verse can compare the process of rubbing two blades against each ot
The Braves Men’s basketball team took on the Indians of Catawba University on the Lumbee Guaranty Bank Court on Nov. 12. Home fans filled the bleachers with the dancing UNCP Maniacs dawned in their usual gold jerseys and the Braves in their all white uniforms. A section of the crowd was wearing yellow t-shirts with the word “Jellybean” on them. They weren’t sporting these shirts expressing their love and adoration for a fruit flavored, jelly-based candy, but instead in suppor
The UNCP wrestling program welcomed a new student transfer to the team this year, sophomore Darian “Tank” Edwards. Tank transferred in from Ferrum College this school year, and while he didn’t have to change school colors, as his former institution donned black and gold as well, Tank did exchange his Panther claws for Brave talons. During his one-year stint at Ferrum, he compiled a 7-6 record at the weight class, three of his victories came via pin in his freshman season. The
