Fighting "Crime" on East Campus

(05/16/07 4:00am)

This spring semester, scandal has crossed North Buchanan Blvd. and invaded the very heart of the freshman quadrangle. Following a series of bench vandalisms and some nefarious graffiti work on the Campus Drive bridge, East has degenerated into a cesspool of crime. Okay, that may be a bit of hyperbole, but the fact remains that Duke Police has no leads and the perpetrators of the so-called artwork remain at large. Towerview sent its resident conspiracy theorist on an expedition to round up the "leading" suspects.

The Rumor Mill

(05/16/07 4:00am)

Syrup Strife Sparta-Athens. Duke-Carolina. Seinfeld-Friends. It's time to add a new rivalry to the list: Pi Beta Phi-Alpha Delta Pi. The two sororities went head-to-head last month over an issue even more important than who has the "best damn pledge class". charity breakfasts. Both organizations inexplicably planned identical, competing events for Sunday, April 1st and then faced off in a high-stakes game of chicken to see who would blink first. In one corner: Pi Phi's appropriately-named "Wake and Bake with Pi Phi", held at Ninth Street steakhouse Metro 8, to benefit a local high school student's college fund. In the other: ADPi's comparably tame, on-campus shindig featured waffles with proceeds to the Ronald McDonald House. The Winner: Neither, as both breakfasts went off as planned. The Loser: Both charities, who had their prospective donors cut in half. Where's the CCI when you actually need it?
