Enjoy the drive

In my four years at Duke, I have driven up Chapel Drive hundreds of times.

Into Durham’s waiting arms

Look baby, when we first met, you thought you saw something in me.

Forever chronicling

I have no words.


I’m a list maker. I make lists.


Invisibility is my specialty.

The end

Writing this column has been shamelessly self-indulgent, but I’d be remiss to define my final semester of college in any other way.

No regrets

Since my first day of freshman year, I have written more than 150 stories, edited more than three volumes worth of articles and clocked in more hours in 301 Flowers than I would care to admit.

Big girls do cry

I lived and died by the rule of ‘no new friends’ long before Drake made it cool, but this made my transition to Duke very difficult.

Road trips down memory lane

Nothing gets me excited quite like a road trip.

Students celebrate last day of existence

“It’s great. It’s like normal LDOC, but no hangovers.”

Lessons Learned

Dear incredible Duke: It’s been quite the ride.

Shout out to 2015

In my first column, “Dear Duke,” I shared a few life lessons that I’ve learned during my time here at Duke.

How Duke failed its students in 2014

It has not been a great year for elections.


They say that humor is like alchemy.

I got lucky with Duke

Remember your decision to come to Duke?

Tis better to have loved and lost? Not always.

“Tis better to have loved and lost, than never to have loved at all.”

E pluribus plures

When my middle and high-school orchestra teacher first exposed me to South Indian classical music, my musical sensibilities were offended.

2 AM talks

“You know where chops sticks come from right?"

The fair skin obsession

I spent this past weekend at my cousin’s beautiful, four-day Indian wedding in sunny southern California.

On home

Moving into my dorm room freshman year, I remember someone telling me “welcome home.”


“If there’s one thing you can expect for certain, it’s uncertainty. Learn to love it.”

Counting down and looking back

Ready, Set, Go!

Love at first bump


Don’t feed the trolls, feed the yaks

Sometimes it’s hard for me to remember Duke before Yik Yak.

On financial aid

“Stanford offers admission to 2,144 students, expands financial aid program”, the press release stated.
