We at The Chronicle’s independent editorial board are pretty tied up (read: wasted) this LDOC, so in lieu of a standard editorial, we’d like to share some of our favorite happenings on the Duke Twittersphere (see, we’re in touch with campus... right? #istwitterstillcool).
The latest trending topic at Duke follows in the footsteps of the Who Needs Feminism campaign. And since we love student activism here at the editorial board, here are some other things #dukeneeds...
