But Knott said uncwebmail.com was
not real competition for the new system.
“We’d recommend not using
(uncwebmail.com) because the person
running the site could get your user
name and password,” he said.
Godwin said he isn’t sure what he will
do with his site now that UNC is offer
ing a similar service. “I haven’t made a
decision about the future of the site, but
as long as people use it, I don’t mind
continuing to leave it there,” he said.
But Knott said the new service will fid
fill any student’s e-mail needs. “I think a
lot of students, once they know about this,
will like it a lot and find it very useful.”

This is partly because Barrie-
Chapman loves to leam. “Anything
people can teach me, I want to know.”
Regardless of her major, she has set
high standards for herself and how she
wants to end her first year.
“I’m aiming for straight As,” she
said. And because her competitive
high school days were filled with
ACTs, SATs and APs, the Northerner
with a strong work ethic says she’s up
for the challenge.
What Barrie-Chapman does outside
of the classroom is also very important
to her. So there lies another what-to
do for her: extracurriculars.
Barrie-Chapman has been riding
horses for 12 years and doesn’t plan to
stop while she’s here.
But fencing also popped into her
mind when thinking of activities she
would like to try out.
And lastly, she wants to be sure to
volunteer during her stay at UNC.
“I want to do everything,” she said.
What Barrie-Chapman is unfazed
about is her move from Illinois to
North Carolina. “I’m still very excited
that I’m here, and it’s fantastic not
being in Illinois so far,” she said. “I
love being so far away. I’m a traveler.”
Barrie-Chapman decided on at least
one thing: Academics are her main
focus for her first year at UNC.
“Homework, classes and grades are
priority. School’s a priority.
Learning’s a priority,” she said.
Barrie-Chapman is trying to figure
things out and finalize some aspects of
her college life.
But when you like everything, hav
ing just one choice is a nightmare.
She plans to buy a goldfish for her
Hinton James room. Its name?
“Spontaneity,” she said.

UNC began long before he settled into
his room in Craige Residence Hall.
Powell, one of six children, has
been intrigued with UNC life since he
was a child.

become a part of UNC life.
And during his first week on cam

Movement - an activity he plans on
committing much of his time to.
“I feel they have a lot to offer the
campus,” Powell said. “I’m going to try
and make BSM my first priority.”
But Powell doesn’t see things in
terms of race.
“(Race) is not apparent to me,” he
said. “I don’t look for that, and I don’t
see it. I’m just here to have fun.”
Somewhere in the middle of Powell’s
mix of student organizations and fun
lies academics - something that the
self-proclaimed overachiever takes very
seriously. “Ultimately it’s about my
classes and what it takes to get the job
done in these classes,” he said.
And performing up to par in large
lectures - like his Political Science 41
class - will be one of the biggest obsta
cles for Powell, who is used to a closer
Enormous lectures or not, political
science is the major he is leaning
toward, while keeping his options open.
Powell does know for sure that
South Campus is the place for him.
“I like South Campus. It seems like
something is always going on,” he said.
Overall, Powell seems to be enjoy

trade it for cushier North Campus.

as I thought it’d be,” he said. “(But) the

he said, listing a 3.5 GPA and an active
BSM role as goals for the year.
But for now, Powell is just enjoying
almost everything at UNC - the peo
ple, the classes, the nightlife.
“The atmosphere and everyone
seems so personable and friendly,” he
said. “Everyone is together, and I get
this united feel about the campus.”
Powell knows that life at UNC
might not always be pleasant and that
the rest of the year might not be like
his first week was.
“Carolina seems like a little utopia,
but I don’t know how it’s going to end.”
Twin Tar Heels
From uttering their first words to
turning their graduation tassels, twins
Katie and Kent Welch have experi
enced life’s milestones and firsts
together for 18 years.
And last weekend - by circum
stance, not by choice, both will quickly
say - the two from Winston-Salem
began their next journey together here
in Chapel Hill: college.
Katie, who both twins say is the
more outgoing of the pair, sees attend
ing college with her brother as a
unique opportunity. But she knows that
although Kent is at the same universi
ty, they’ll carve their own niche.
“I didn’t come here because of
Kent,” she said. “But I am excited that
I am here with him. I just see us going
our separate paths, but at the same
time, we can look over and see where
the other one is.”
Kent is the more reserved of the
two. But being a twin his entire life has
made him eager to branch out.
“For 18 years it’s been Katie and
Kent,” he said. “The independent part
of njjfi has been irked because you’re

This weekend Brent Road was more
a standoff between partyers and Raleigh
police than a back-to-school blowout
Nearly 500 police officers descended
on Brent Road, establishing traffic
checkpoints and lining nearby Gorman
Street with dozens of police cars.
One Raleigh police officer, who
asked not to be identified, said at mid
night Saturday, “I don’t think anything
major’s going to happen. They did a lot
of psychological warfare on these kids.”
Several Brent Road residents said
they received letters from their land
lords, threatening eviction if police had
to break up their party.
A recent Raleigh city ordinance gives
police the authority to break up parties
and arrest everyone on the property if
the party is deemed a nuisance.
linked to someone by default.”
Beyond excitement about their first
year in college, it seems these Tar Heel
twins share few common interests.
She wants to get involved in student
government. He wants to further his
musical talent on the banjo and guitar.
Her tentative major is political science.
His? Probably history.
And since Kent could use a break
from all the things and people he’s accus
tomed to - his sister included - they’re
living in separate parts of campus. Right?
Wrong. Both Welches have shunned
the infamous elements of South
Campus - small rooms, no air condi
tioning and long walks to class - for
the confines of Granville Towers.
“The great thing about being on
South Campus is the (freshman) expe
rience,” Katie said. “But I don’t think it
outweighs all of the good things about
Kent was a little more reluctant to
choose Granville, but motherly inter

“It just doesn’t seem like the same
atmosphere or camaraderie (as South
Campus),” he said. “But I’d have fun at

When May Rolls Around ...
Both Kent and Katie were academic
and extracurricular standouts during
their high school days.
Their senior year, Kent was co-edi
tor of his high school newspaper and
Katie was student council president.
And when it was all said and done,
both had the grades to land them spots
in UNC’s freshman class.
So when they envision themselves
in May, both Kent and Katie want to
have strong academic standings.

Several N.C. State students also
planned an alcohol-free event for
Saturday night to give partygoers an
alternative to Brent Road.
Raleigh police Capt. Mike Longmire
said police took a variety of approaches
to contain the Brent Road party this
year, including making several drug
busts along the street prior to Saturday.
Some neighborhood residents wel

Dori and Todd Wilson, who live less

Sam down Brent Road after sunset
Todd said the family would never
have taken a walk at night at a previous
Brent Road party. “Last year, we came
to the top of the hill,” he said. “That was
as far as we dared. This year, it’s almost
like any other Saturday night”
But some partygoers were angered by
this year’s police crackdown.

The Welches also agree that grow

vital part of their UNC experience.
Katie said when summer rolls

independent spirit and have fully expe

myself to grow that much,” she said.
Her brother knows for sure that, by
May, he’ll be a different Kent Welch.

Varozza said he would not spend the'
rest of his Saturday night on Brent Road.,
“I’m looking for a fun place,” he said.
“That’s place where you can drink beer,
without being scared.”
Other partyers adapted to the police
presence, chatting with some officers.
Linlee Zito, a recent N.C. State grad

picture with two police officers near a
deserted slip-and-slide pouring water
onto the sidewalk. “They’ve got some
hot cops out here tonight,” she said.
As her picture was being taken, sev

“(The police) aren’t our enemy,” Zito
said. “They’re just doing their job.”
