While this is primarily a sports site we would like to add a special campus corespondent to the team to report on all things around campus in UNC.  Any student photographers that want to see their pictures of around campus and especially at sporting events on the web?  Keeping it Heel is looking for a campus photographer to submit photos for the sites features section and to be used in author posts.  Hop the campus bars at UNC?  We are looking for someone to contribute to a new Tar Heel Bars feature that will have reviews of each UNC bar on campus, this could be a regular thing or a 1 time series depending on the candidate.

Part of the mission of the FanSided  Network, is to encourage our community of readers to share their opinions and thoughts on their favorite teams. Our writers don’t hold back and we don’t expect our readers to either. We want to give you the best coverage and opinions on your favorite team from the fan perspective that is so often missing from traditional sports media. We believe sports coverage doesn’t have to be dry, boring and without opinion.
