EOT75 Missions of Mercy 11/15/11

Impromptu Musicians- Nick caught up with some students at N.C. State who spontaneously play their instruments around campus to find out more about what they do.

No Shave November-  If you’ve noticed an increase in facial hair on some of our male students recently, that’s probably because we are right in the middle of No Shave November.  Dave got the low-down on what’s going on.

Cub Scouts- The WKNC studio was host to some special visitors: a scout troop.  Chris has the story.

Bad Movies You’ve Gotta See- In the kickoff episode of this series, Jake reviews “The Car”, a 70s thriller that….. You’ve Gotta See!

Missions of Mercy Dental Clinic-  The Missions of Mercy Dental Clinic, a project started by the North Carolina Dental Society, travels around the state to deliver free care to those who can’t afford the luxury.  Twelve times a year, the M.O.M. sets up for the weekend to serve 400 to 600 patients.  Our contributor Mark was there this weekend as they worked to keep North Carolina residents’ teeth pearly white.

Poetry- The Windhover is N.C. State’s premier literary magazine and is available for free on campus.  Occasionally here at Eye on the Triangle., we try to meet some of the artists who make the magazine, and this week Dave interviewed poet Tim Reavis about some of his poetry that will be featured in this year’s publication.
