Some very big changes took place on the student leadership front on campus, leaving us with a new student body president and plenty of unanswered questions. Deondre seeks to answer a few of those in this next story.

N.C. State students are constantly doing really big things in this world. This week, Andrew got the privilege of interviewing Christina Hammock,  an N.C. State alum who now works for NASA. We are sorry for the quality of the phone call, please understand that Christina was calling from the island of Samoa, reception is a little weird over there.

Our last story highlights the growing nonprofit drive here in Raleigh, starting with our university’s nonprofit studies minor. Deondre’ has more.

Fridays on the Lawn returns yet again!

WKNC has again teamed up with our friends in the Union Activities Board and Student Government to bring some of the finest local bands to campus, totally free and complete with fringe benefits!

Come out Harris Field on  April 8 and catch free live performances from two area favorites: Durham’s happy-folk darlings Midtown Dickens and Chapel Hill’s groovy alt-Americana Butterflies.

Midtown performed at last year’s Double Barrel benefit 7, and have since made stops at Local Beer Local Band, Troika Music Festival, Hopscotch Music Festival, and just about everywhere else in between. And with releases on both 307 Knox Records and Trekky Records, Midtown has quite the rap sheet.

We are also just as thrilled to feature Trekky comrades Butterflies. With only one release to their name, you may be surprised should you be fortunate enough to catch them live–you’d think they have been at it for a while. Well now’s your chance, and for completely free!

The show starts at 6:30 and is FREE and open to the public. There will be limited supplies of free food, ticket giveaways, and more! So come out, bring a couple friends, and  enjoy the weather while supporting some of the finest in local music!

WKNC thanks our fine sponsors at Chubby’s Tacos, Vitamin Water, and Ultimate Entertainment.

EDITORIAL

  • Storm alerts interrupted programming, including the Duke game against Baylor. Twitter and local blogs erupted with complaints.  The alerts did, indeed, alert, but left fans and evening television watchers agitated.

  • The FCC requires TV stations to relay weather warnings via the Emergency Alert system their broadcasting license.

  • Despite the unplanned interruption and programming rollback, the alerts are essential and can – and did – help save lives.

If you have a response to this editorial or any part of tonight’s show, contact us on twitter at WKNCEOT, look for us on Facebook at Eye on the Triangle, or shoot an email to publicaffairs@wknc.org.

VIP

In lieu of Student Body Elections, which are causing, if not a stir, then a paper and sandwich board trail around campus. Student Media invited top-tier Student Government candidates—Student Body Treasurer, Student Senate President and Student Body President—to contribute their platforms and ideas on questions that moderators Mike Alston and Saja Hindi asked.

COMMUNITY CANVAS

Correspondent Chris Cioffi caught up with Lillian Jones to discuss how she develops ideas for the Raleigh Treasure Hunt in which she invited all of Raleigh to follow clues that lead to a silver key. Whoever found it won a prize from her jewelry store. Cioffi talked to Jones about the event and about her ideas for future hunts. He also spoke to her about the recent publicity the hunt has been receiving, like this story in the News and Observer.

Later, he sat down in the studio with this year’s winner, Team Clueless. Solving the puzzle in one day, Team Clueless quickly snagged the newest pendant. Their quick solving methods shattered the reigning champ’s time, almost three months. He spoke to them about their previous treasure hunt experiences, as well as their experience with The Raleigh Treasure Hunt. They spoke about channeling Ms. Jones’s thinking process to get an edge on solving the clues, as well as how their individual talents came together to make the perfect solving force.

WOLFPACKER OF THE WEEK

Eye on the Triangle’s Wolfpacker of the Week is a sophomore working on a degree in construction engineering and management and is also the co-president of the Skateboarding Club.  Correspondent Jacob Downey spoke to the Matt Brokaw, co-president of N.C. Skate, the University’s skating club. As one of the club’s founders, Brokaw has worked to help transition the club from a collective of enthusiasts and hobbyists into a competitive body able to represent the University at intercollegiate meets. An avid skater since getting his first board at 11 years old, Brokaw said he enjoys promoting skating through service projects like N.C. State’s Habitat for Humanity Fundraiser, Shack-A-Thon, and hosting fundraisers for Grind for Life.  One of the things he enjoys about his involvement with the NCSU Club Sport is the mentor relationship between experienced skaters and beginners. For more information on the NCSU skateboarding club visit http://www.skatewall.com/ncstate/about.html or pop in at one of their biweekly meetings in Riddick Hall Room 339 at 8 p.m. The next one is April 7. You can also hang out with the skaters behind the Free Expression Tunnel as the group hosts the “H.O.R.S.E.” inspired game of “ S.T.A.T.E.” on Saturday afternoon, April 10.

EOT03 Student Government 9/7/09

Eye on the Triangle’s Labor Day show hopefully gave some of you something to listen to on your drive back from your various vacations. For those of you who missed it, you can listen to the segment’s podcasts. This week’s episode covered a variety of topics, some of which will continue to come up throughout the year, so stay tuned.

VIP:

In this week’s VIP, Saja Hindi interviewed Student Body President Jim Ceresnak, a newcomer to the Student Government scene, about what it was like to be a student leader during a time of uncertainty at the University, following the resignations of the University’s top officials. Ceresnak also spoke about the year ahead and the projects he hopes to push for the student body. To get an insider’s look on Ceresnak and his past, check out Technician’s profile on the new student body president when he first got elected.

Adam Compton interviewed the student body’s vice-president, more commonly known as the Student Senate president, Kelli Rogers for EOT’s VIP segment. Rogers, unlike Ceresnak, has been working in Student Government on what may have seemed to be the logical path to Student Senate president, from student senator her freshman year to Student Senate pro temp last year, to more involvement in between.

HEAR THIS:

This week, we gave you an extended version of Hear This, filled with interviews from Zach Terry about the Bike MS Benefit Show at Cat’s Cradle and information about Snuzzfest benefit concert at the Local 506. The Bike MS Benefit Show (to battle Multiple Sclerosis) featured Last of the Great Side Show Freaks, Tomahawks, Lafcadio and Zach Terry. Snuzzfest is a benefit concert for Snuzz who is uninsured and has to have lymphoma treatment. It featured, among others, Tres Chicas and the Desmonds.

WOLFPACKER OF THE WEEK:

Jacob Downey sat down with Russell Spencer Gentry, a junior in anthropology and history who is preparing for his role in the production of Amadeus in Thompson Theatre Sept. 18 to 20 and Sept. 23 to 27.

SOUNDBYTES:

And in this week’s Soundbytes, Caitlin Cauley and May Chung interviewed students around campus to see what they thought about the health care debate. The responses may seem somewhat surprising.

Tune into next Monday’s show at 7 p.m. about the Raleigh-Durham divide, and email us at publicaffairs@wknc.org if you have any ideas, gripes or want to suggest someone for the Wolfpacker of the Week.

Listen to episode three.
