Take a deep breath and listen closely. Notice anything missing? Construction has quieted down significantly, with the completion of the new Hollows Quad and renovations of Craven Quad. But just because West Campus has momentarily calmed down in terms of construction, that doesn’t mean that all the excitement is gone. Here are a few stories, people and questions to watch out for this year.
My friend has a history of working with cognitively disabled children. If he overhears someone casually say something is “r*******,” he does not hesitate to speak up. Yet when he saw Marketplace was serving fish tacos again, he offhandedly remarked, “Oh my god, I’ll blow my brains out if I have to eat that again.” I have no interest in seeing my friend’s brains splattered across Marketplace and, frankly, am offended. Should I call him out?
Arriving at college last year, one of my greatest fears was sexual assault. Given that approximately a quarter of all female college students are sexually assaulted, and half of these assaults occur in the first six weeks of school, this is not an irrational phobia.

While administrators publicly say that the foundation of the university is its students, sometimes Duke has to worry about its other foundation—in this case, the one buried under the admissions building.
In the wake of recent mass shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio, the president and other Republican lawmakers responded to the increasing demands of gun control activists by pointing to mental illness. But experts from Duke say that’s wrong.
CHAPEL HILL — If you hit a brick wall enough times, it’s bound to come crumbling down eventually.
Team USA fencer and Olympic medalist Ibtihaj Muhammad, Trinity ‘07, encouraged the Class of 2023 to make confident decisions based on their personal beliefs, regardless of other people's actions or opinions.
Duke Football takes the field in Atlanta on Saturday in its first season-opening game with Alabama since 1972. In this one, like the '72 game, Duke will play before a full house (in the Mercedes Benz Stadium) against an Alabama team ranked No. 2 nationally preseason polls. For all of that, the game stands for so much more in the lore of college football and in the Duke program's return to the national stage under Coach David Cutcliffe.
When he was hired by Duke four decades ago, Mike Krzyzewski was a young head coach with limited prior experience. After a tumultuous few seasons to open his tenure in Durham, Krzyzewski was able to put together a legendary recruiting class in 1982 that opened the door for him to put together arguably the most impressive coaching resume of all-time. Krzyzewski is now a five-time national champion with the Blue Devils, the all-time winningest coach in college basketball and a three-time Olympic gold medal winner as coach of U.S.A. basketball.

It has a flat-head V8, two four-barrel carburators, solid valve-lifters, short-stack headers, and a toploader four-in-the-floor transmission.
