Final Exam: Meet Duke's senior rocket scientists

(09/24/14 8:12am)

Seniors Emily Briere and Lauren Silverstein are literally rocket scientists. Combined, the two Pratt School of Engineering students have worked with four different space companies—Briere at NASA Ames Academy and Lockheed Martin, and Silverstein at Honda Aircraft Company and SpaceX. The Chronicle sat down with Briere and Silverstein to discuss women in STEM fields and their current project to land time capsules on Mars.


Editor's Note, 9/18

(09/18/14 8:48am)

Recently, Duke has been happy to straddle the line between a research university and a liberal arts school. While it is objectively a research university, it is fairly common to hear tour guides boasting about the appeal of a “small school with the resources of a large school” to rapt parents and prospective students.




Moonlighting the arts

(07/01/14 8:16am)

It’s often hard for us to picture our professors outside of the classroom setting. Students chuckle together at photos and videos of their professors from years ago. Stories of past adventures and stupidity are told as a stress-reliever by professors and as a way to remind students that they, too, have lives students don’t know about.





Music Review: A Tribute to Bob Dylan in the '80s: Volume One

(03/27/14 8:52am)

Love him or simply respect him (because nobody should hate him), Bob Dylan is a unique and talented individual. There’s a reason people still go to see him perform despite his raspy, nearly incomprehensible voice. His style, though generally simplistic and straightforward, isn't necessarily easy to imitate, and “A Tribute to Bob Dylan in the '80s: Volume One” proves it. This album, featuring covers of Dylan songs from—you guessed it—the 1980s, struggles without any outstanding tracks to anchor the collection. While each track refreshes a Dylan classic, there are few that are truly innovative.

Watch List: Old Duke

(02/26/14 9:30am)

A concert hosted by the Joe College Concerts committee of Duke University Union, Old Duke has always been an event to remind Duke students of the music of their youth. This much-adored springtime concert has traditionally had a “throwback” theme. The Joe College Concerts committee has brought in formerly popular 90s artists in past years, including Smash Mouth and Shaggy, to perform in a casual, outdoor setting. In 2013, Old Duke was held on Keohane Quad, which is where the event will be held again this year.
