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.

Duke computer science—aka the boys' club

(02/06/20 5:00am)

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.
