Thank you to my car, and others

Recruitment and rush have always been my favorite and least favorite times of year on campus. Like most days at Duke, every day during recruitment feels like a year, since everyone’s running off from one flurry of social events to the next. Some of us are trying to go to our classes, but many of us are there in physical form only. Our minds are somewhere else.

Movie Review: Spotlight

(12/03/15 7:47am)

“Spotlight” has been heralded as the new “All the President’s Men,” a movie dramatizing the journalism industry at a time when journalism is not always afforded the kindest sentiments. It has a 98 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes, so audiences clearly have positive things to say about it. And it seems like every day, my Twitter feed reveals another article about “Spotlight.” I am here to add to the chaos.

A typical day for comedian Steven Wright often involves a trip to the "Louie" set to offer his advice as a consulting producer and now a co-producer. But Wright began his career as a comedian with a trademark style that resonated with audiences. He comes to the Carolina Theatre this Saturday to regale audiences with his stand-up work. The Chronicle's Elizabeth Djinis spoke with Wright about how he became a comedian, how he developed his audience and what he's doing now. 






Amy Unell talks Artstigators, creativity on campus

(09/01/15 5:51am)

From the rectangular stickers adorning laptops across campus to the colorful new wraps on the Duke buses, the reach of the artstigators has grown significantly in the first year since its inception. And at their helm, as expert of all things art at Duke, is Amy Unell.  The Chronicle’s Elizabeth Djinis spoke with Unell about what makes the artstigators so successful—and from where their unique name originated.





Arts are everywhere

(08/27/15 6:35am)

Stepping onto Duke’s campus as a newly-minted freshman three years ago, the arts were the furthest thing from my mind. Orientation Week prompted various introductions to far too many students and two academic pathways stood out: economics and pre-med. So you might be the only one who likes to be creative, I reasoned to myself glumly, but at least you’ll have a bunch of friends who can tutor you.
