(04/24/23 4:44am)

As QuadEx approaches the end of its inaugural year, the new residential system has been met with mixed reviews from both first-years and upperclassmen. While some believe QuadEx is a step in the right direction, others are frustrated at being caught in the transition.

(04/24/23 2:36am)

There is no place like home. In a preview of the ACC championships in early May, which the Blue Devils will co-host with North Carolina, No. 14 Duke rowing rode an extremely strong first day to claim the Lake Wheeler Invitational’s Pocock Cup for the third time in four years. 

The one-dimensionality of Indian restaurant food

(04/24/23 4:00am)

The food at Indian restaurants in America revolves around 2 subregions of Indian cuisine. I’ve always been confused about where the familiarly aromatic flavors of my north Indian mother’s cooking went — perhaps they were lost in translation. I could never find the countless rice dishes I used to eat at my south Indian friends’ houses — the nutty notes of the coconut, the subtle sourness of the curd rice, the trifecta of sweet, sour and spicy in puliyogare – at most, the kind of Indian culinary representation we get in America is reduced to a few south Indian and Mughlai dishes.

With just under four minutes to play, senior attacker Caroline DeBellis brought the ball up behind the goal, moving to her right around the crease. Cutting directly toward her from the top of the eight-meter arc was sophomore attacker Carly Bernstein. DeBellis dumped it off and Bernstein followed through, breaking the 11-11 tie and putting Duke up — for good.

That time I reviewed music for two years

In my junior fall semester, I joined The Chronicle on the recommendation of a friend. I don’t aspire to go into journalism and never thought my writing was special. Still, I’m opinionated when it comes to music, cartoons, and video games, so I attended my first Recess meeting on a whim. The end result was a retrospective article reviewing Black Eyed Peas’s album “The E.N.D.'' I then wrote more music reviews and eventually became a music beat writer for the Recess section. I’ve, without a doubt, enjoyed my time writing for the Duke Chronicle. Despite this, after I graduate, I’ll probably never write another music review again.

I joined Recess by mistake. I’m so glad that I did.

So there I was, sitting in my dorm room in the basement of Craven, asking myself how in the world was I going to stay sane as a sophomore at Zoom (née Duke) University in the fall of 2020. I was still on what seemed like a hundred listservs from the activities fair held a lifetime ago. Foolishly, I thought that an additional “extracurricular” would hold back the inevitable loneliness and isolation that was in store for us all.
