The archetypal Grammy performance is a slow, sad piano ballad. It’s a relatively safe choice for an artist — at worst it’s slightly boring, but when done right it can be transcendental. So it’s fitting that the artist who gave exactly this kind of performance, Billie Eilish, is the one who walked away with all the biggest awards. Safe and well-deserved, it was no surprise that Billie had such a great night, but it made for an anticlimactic ceremony to say the least.
Across Duke, the term “impact” has been used so many times to self-characterize one’s long term goals that it can feel trite.

This is part one of a three-part series about the raucous history of Duke students burning benches after major basketball victories. Read part two here and part three here.
Duke claims to be committed to developing highly ethical adults who are dedicated leaders in their respective communities. Duke already has a great track record in this regard, so I’m certain that many of my peers will be future leaders in their industries. Notable alumni include Tim Cook, Melinda Gates and Louis von Ahn. However, we must also focus on the ethical standards that Duke is replicating on campus.
