    Seahawks After Dark: The Evolution of Midnite Madness

    Seahawks After Dark is an exhibit from University Archives highlighting UNCW’s Midnite Madness tradition then and now.

    Midnite Madness honors the start of the UNCW basketball season. It was first held in 1990 and has become a popular annual event. 

    Historically, players could not legally take the court to train until midnight of the approved day.  Today, after a few rule changes, a name change, and the addition of other campus-wide events, Midnite Madness has evolved to become a week-long celebration for men’s and women’s basketball.

    This exhibit showcases historic photographs of UNCW’s campus and students, as well as tangible items from Midnite Madness history portraying Seahawk spirit.

    Please visit the Wentworth Fellows posters on Randall Library's first floor. 

    The Wentworth Fellowship, a gift of Mr. Charles F. Green III, was established in 2001 to enable a select number of students to travel to sites, in America or abroad, associated with literary authors and texts. This year's recipients traveled to places as far away as Dublin and Big Sur to study writers as diverse as Kate Chopin, Jonathan Swift, and David Foster Wallace.

    Meet the Fellows in person Wednesday, October 7th,  3-5 pm and be sure to stop by the Randall Library information table to learn about how Randall Library can provide support and assistance to you when you embark on a research project. You can also visit the library resources webpage to learn how we can support projects like this!

    Special thanks to Assistant Professor of Poetry, Department of English, Dr. Alex Porco, for serving as this year's Wentworth Chair.

    Network Downtime Randall Library

    On Tuesday Oct 13 from 12am until 6am (Monday night) the central networking equipment located in Randall Library’s networking closets is going to be removed and replaced with new equipment. This means that during this time all computers in the building, including those on the wireless network, will lose network access for extended, and possibly repeated, periods of time.  

    Campus ITS has scheduled this work during the least disruptive time (overnight, during fall break) but still within their timeframe to complete this vital project. This work is part of a campus-wide project to replace end of life networking equipment which will modernize the networks in all buildings. It will improve speed and capacity for on-campus connections. 

    We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this important work may cause.
