At 12:24 pm on September 27th, 2022, as I sat in class, a DukeAlert pinged nearly every computer in the room. A few of us glanced away from the discussion we were having and read the email.
Following Week 3 of the NFL, the Blue Zone breaks down the performances of several former Blue Devils:
“Duke does plan to be around forever, and it has to manage its endowment as if it will be.” This throwaway sentence by Scott Huler, ironically, was the key that locked a Pandora's box of contradictory conundrums and reservations that I had about Duke. How can an organization be the voice of the oppressed, while oppressing the same people? How can an institution be an agent of capitalism while being ground zero for anti-capitalist ideas?
Anyone familiar with Greek mythology is likely familiar with the tale of Sisyphus—the man whose eternal punishment in Hades required him to push a boulder up a hill, only to see it roll all the way back down just inches from the summit. It is a common metaphor in everyday life for pursuits that just barely fall short of completion and one that, for better or worse, perfectly embodied Duke's 1-1 draw against Yale Tuesday night.
A couple weeks ago, The New York Times Opinion column published a series of 12 articles, each answering the specific question, “What is school for?” Together, the 12 articles expanded on 12 different answers, coming from a variety of sources ranging from economics professors from Brown University to parents of public high school students.

The 37th annual North Carolina Latin American Film Festival (NCLAFF) will not only offer a variety of short-length to feature-length films, but it will also be a chance to engage students and the public into a dialogue concerning issues faced by Latin American people that may be overlooked by popular media.
Whether it’s hosting “Dash” or “interest events,” some non-Greek selective living groups got creative to abide by Duke’s recruitment restrictions. Meanwhile other SLGs continued to hold traditional rush.
After an entertaining but tough loss against Kansas, Duke is looking to rebound and get to 4-1 as it welcomes 2-2 Virginia to Durham. Under the lights Saturday at 7:30 p.m., the Blue Devils start a new season, ACC play, which has not been kind to them in recent years.
Editor's Note: Since publication, the Durham Police Department has told The Chronicle that the case is still an "active investigation" and "has not been unfounded."
Editor’s note: Since publication, The Chronicle has reported that a second DukeAlert was sent to members of the Duke community, which read that Duke and Durham Police investigators determined the reported robbery to be "unfounded."
For those who have sat in, worked in, or slept in Gross Hall (shout-out to all the Pratt stars), chances are you know very little about the building’s titular figure, Paul Magnus Gross. Particularly the fact that he led a team at Duke to design a novel bullet that would help thousands of American soldiers to more effectively shoot their targets during World War II.
Duke returns home to Wallace Wade Stadium Saturday to host its first ACC game of the year against Virginia at 7:30 p.m:

Last week, as I walked across Abele Quad, I came across a table with petitions and pamphlets for Duke Graduate Student Union (DGSU). A cardboard sign read, “Duke can’t work without us.”

This September 15th marks the start of Latinx Heritage Month. It has made me reflect a lot on my journey exploring culture—the importance of it, and the ways I have had to defend it. When I came to Duke, I was so lost. It felt like nobody would ever understand the hardships I had to overcome to even get here. My freshman year, I was hardly involved with Mi Gente or any cultural organization for that matter. Then, I decided to take a chance and join the Political Committee in Mi Gente; for the first time, I did not feel alone. Joining gave me the confidence to speak Spanish, get connected with my roots, and express myself through culture. I was able to meet amazing Latinx leaders on campus who cared about the issues our community was facing. Mi Gente allowed me to find connections in a year where COVID made that especially hard. Cultural organizations, in general, are great touch points for marginalized students. However, more needs to be done for students outside their own labor. There are obstacles for Latinx students everywhere I look. Everyday, whether it be through extracurriculars or an academic environment, I saw my mentors, who are also Latinx students, be forced to defend their right to be here. My time at Duke has been very emblematic of this. Everyday, I fight for the right of students of color to exist on campus. I realized that expressing my culture was worthwhile, but I had to fight for my right to do that. The closer I came to traditional or dominant systems at Duke, the more issues I had with honoring my culture. Organizations like Mi Gente, where I was able to freely be myself and become grounded, sometimes feel completely antithetical to the systems in place at this university. Student activists must often sacrifice their mental health and overall college experience, spending time in hostile environments, for the sake of the students who come after them. That was true for my mentors and myself, and will be true for future students like us.
RALEIGH—When it rains, it pours.
