I remember New York City being bone-cold the March of my freshman year. I was standing in line for a live taping of “Late Night with Stephen Colbert.” It was Winter Storm Stella that March, and I huddled outside with strangers to keep warm before the show started. A Californian in New York, braving a storm to see Stephen Colbert in the flesh.
My life can be characterized by the 30-mile radius around Cary, North Carolina, where I went to public school for K-12 and have lived in the same house forever. Perhaps because of that, I decided to join Duke’s International Association (IA) during the end of my freshman year.
They say the devil is in the details. But in Durham, the Blue Devils are in the details—and numbers.
It’s the beginning of the new school year, and for The Chronicle opinion section that means an onslaught of patronizing columns directed towards first-years written by people vastly unqualified to give any sort of life advice. I have no interest in reading how one year at Duke taught you the importance of stress management or how it took time for you to make this new environment feel like a home. I don’t need a thousand words to tell me that college life presents you with a lot of options but you should probably only commit to a few; and while we’re at it (even though it’s off topic) I may as well mention that the column about “Radical Randys” pissed me off too.

The Marine Geospatial Ecology Lab at Duke has been researching biodiversity for more than a decade. One of the lab’s researchers—Guillermo Crespo—was the lead author on a study that discovered the current wording of a United Nations treaty would protect less than 5% of fish species in international waters. The Chronicle spoke with Crespo, a Ph.D. candidate in the Nicholas School of the Environment, about why the treaty falls short and his research with the lab at Duke. This interview has been edited for length and clarity.

Hello, it's Better Laettner Than Never where I say a few things that may be unpopular opinion. For example, I think we should use the Oxford comma. But anyways...It's not always serious, but sometimes it is. Better that I say it now than never.
Dear Unlicensed Ethicist: “Who tf cracked an egg and left it on the kitchen floor? Do you not have any sense of accountability?” These sentences, which I read in the “Randolph ‘22” GroupMe just before leaving Duke after freshman year, rattled around in my head all summer. Indeed, who was that shameless egg-cracker? And seriously, on the kitchen floor?
