Film room: Analyzing Duke men's basketball center Dereck Lively II

(08/15/22 5:37pm)

A new era of Duke men's basketball is on the horizon, and with it comes an almost entirely new roster. In this series, the Blue Zone analyzes film on each of the Blue Devils' new signees and transfers for the 2022-23 season.

Concerned driver for Duke vans

(08/12/22 7:00am)

The point of this letter is not to start a huge problem, but to get some help from students, fellow staff, alumni who aren't aware of these changes. Since van service has moved to a new program using TransLoc--the same app that is used to track the buses--more students and staff than ever will see that a van service is available. With only four to six van drivers, though, I anticipate wait times will be through the roof; some students and staff might end up taking the dangerous walk to their car or dorm/apartment late at night. It's unfair to keep van service employees pressurized by a constant queue, and unfair to the people who depend on van service to travel at night. I feel a lot can be changed for the better, and hope the Duke community can come together as one voice.

For an ordinary Chinese family, it is not easy to train a student who can be admitted by a top university in the world.
