Editor’s note: Two students speaking at the event were concerned about facing harassment if quoted and attributed in this piece, in light of recent events regarding harassment and student safety at other college campuses.
I have nothing against information, but we simply get too much of it. We’re constantly getting answers to questions we’ve never asked. I don’t lay awake at night wondering which plastic surgery trend is the hottest, but my phone thinks I do. Every minute, I’m being fed neverending spam emails, coverage on Twitter fan wars, ads for the newest weight-loss drug and memes about Kylie Jenner and Timothee Chalamet. The sea of absolute irrelevancy is harmful. I’ve gotten so used to consuming mammoth amounts of shallow information, I can’t even discern what information is important or accurate anymore. And that’s by design.
Students from across the Duke community gathered on Abele Quad Thursday evening for a Day of Peace, organized by Jewish and Israeli student groups for students to “enjoy music, poetry, crafts & more as we hope for peace, together.”
Before Duke, I had never lived alone. The longest I had been away from my family was a few weeks at a journalism camp, as a high school freshman, and I called my mom thrice every day. And then, after what felt like two straight years of repeated lockdowns, I was boarding a flight to a different continent. From seeing them every waking minute to committing to seeing my family for less than two months a year, I decided that my ambition and the Duke name on my resume was worth missing everyone and everything.

As fall break begins and the usual bustle of campus subsides, here are plenty of activities to fill the time if you plan on staying on campus during fall break.
I first met Angela at the Duke MFA in Dance orientation at the Rubenstein Arts Center during the fall of 2022. Angela arrived in a fantastic outfit, looking effortlessly cool (as I would come to know was one of her specialties), and I was struck by her apparent uniqueness and immensely interesting additions to our group conversations. I realized almost instantly how infectiously energetic she was, and that we would all benefit from her evident brilliance in the dance department.
Like an amoeba engulfing a helpless paramecium, Duke has yet again set its gaze on another piece of Durham real estate: Blue Light Apartments.
We write as alumni of Duke University to urge the leadership to set goals that lead to fair and equitable employment practices, sustainable environmental policy and responsible investment strategies. Many of us are women and men who arrived on campus in the 1960s and 1970s. During that tumultuous period, we learned values in the classroom and the larger Durham community that shaped our lives and led to decades of social and political activism.
I was married to Angela Risi for a short time; we were together for nine years. I met her in San Diego and moved to Chicago with her where we started a wholesome and loving life together. We moved to Durham last year and unfortunately separated shortly after, but she was always on my mind.

Duke enters Saturday’s prime-time matchup against N.C. State off of a well-timed bye week following the Blue Devils’ 21-14 loss to Notre Dame. A game where Duke led late in the fourth quarter, the loss set No. 17 Duke back to 4-1; however, the Blue Devils will look to move to 2-0 in ACC play this Saturday on the Wallace Wade Stadium grass.
As the beginning of basketball season is near, the Blue Zone provides a detailed preview of each player on Duke men's basketball's 2023-24 roster. We've already looked at Stanley Borden. Up next is returning guard Spencer Hubbard:
Skepticism towards standardized tests has become increasingly obvious in recent years, with more than 1,900 colleges and universities in the U.S. remaining test-optional for the 2023-24 application cycle. Just a few months ago, Harvard University announced that applications will remain test-optional for at least four more admissions cycles, asserting that “students who do not submit standardized test scores will not be disadvantaged in their application process.”
