Patrick Tape's stint as a Blue Devil lasted all of nine days.
On March 6, students departed campus for spring break, anticipating a week of rest and a reprieve from academics and extracurriculars. Four days later, the semester as they knew it was over. In a dramatic institutional response to the burgeoning coronavirus pandemic, Duke turned on a dime, shutting down campus, extending spring break and digitizing the entire university experience. That transition has not been seamless. Yet we have never loved Duke more.
In a budding spring without nightclubs, windows-down car rides with friends and almost every other moment that begs for new pop music, it might feel weird to revel in “Future Nostalgia,” the electronic, disco, dance-pop album that Dua Lipa released last Friday. But Lipa’s album gives me a vivid mental image of what our post-quarantine nights will be like — and I hope you join me in that “nostalgia” for the future.
Duke announced its credit and refund policies in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has shuttered the campus to most students.
Up to $50 million has been approved for new research on a potential COVID-19 treatment, and Duke is taking charge.
What used to be a two-hour sit-down is now a 20-minute Zoom conference—welcome to the new Duke Student Government Senate meetings.
Duke may be keeping its default satisfactory/unsatisfactory grading policy for now, but that does not mean undergraduate student debate about it has stopped.
Senior Kerry Castor first heard the news about Duke’s transition to online classes while on the elliptical in Wilson Recreation Center. Her phone flashed with a message from her swing dancing club’s GroupMe chat.
If the past two weeks have afforded me anything, it is an uncomfortable amount of free time. As a slightly overly-introspective dreamer, I have filled these hours reading, writing and reflecting on our current situation. And I would be lying if I said that I did not clearly feel God’s presence in these moments.
Since COVID-19 began its spread in Wuhan, media attention on China has almost exclusively covered coronavirus, leaving behind violent demonstrations still present in citizens’ minds.
With the suspension and later cancellation of all Duke athletic competition due to the spread of coronavirus, many Blue Devil seasons were abruptly cut short. The Chronicle is going to take a look back at those seasons affected as well as what we missed out on with their cancellations. We've already looked at men's basketball. Now it's time for women's basketball.
Undergraduate students at Duke Kunshan University (DKU) in China will be contributing written and multimedia content to The Chronicle to be published every other Friday.
As Duke students, we like to pride ourselves in our grit and mental toughness. There's a very distinct culture here that attracts and cultivates the student that over-extends, over-achieves and laughs in the face of adversity. We share passions for social justice, community involvement and the pursuit of knowledge. We love making memes that epitomize the collective student experience. We work hard, we play harder and we enjoy every step of the process—as much as we also love to complain and pretend that we don't.
There are only a handful of people who have the ability to imprint so deeply on others through even the briefest of interactions. Raj was one of these people. In the 30 minutes or so that I got to know him a bit better while he graciously drove me to the airport a few weeks ago, I knew that I was in the presence of a humble genius. As no words are adequate enough for me to describe his generosity or smiling nature, all I can say is how glad I am that my last memories of Duke this semester were with a ray of sunshine. My love and prayers go out to Raj and his loved ones.
1. The way he would always halfway open all his mac and cheese bites from pitch to let them cool before eating them but stop after like four because he could never finish his meals.
I’ll start off with a confession: I don’t like cats. I’ve never liked cats. Beyond making my allergies flare up, they’re pretentious and unfriendly. Why do they always look so mad?
Upon initial news of the changes to Duke class structure, student responses were overwhelmingly distraught.
Last Saturday I learned that one of the people I consider closest to me Is now one of the people I considered closest to me All in one moment
My eyes are blurry, and I can’t really tell where my phone screen ends and the darkness begins. The glow from the bed below me has stopped — my brother must have gone to bed. From my perch up on the top bunk, I glance over at the radio clock — a little past midnight — playing a pop song I’d rather forget. Abruptly, the singer’s voice gives way to silence as the sleep timer kicks in.
