In dining and writing, keep Duke's variety alive

(02/21/22 5:00am)

Sorry kids -- that fine dining you have come to expect from WU is on its way OUT. Who cares if Duke dining is ranked number one? Everything is scrapped. Vegetarian? Better buck up! Vegan? Yeah, you are screwed. Carnivores, you aren’t immune either. Eat up now because next year Duke’s premier, highly touted dining program is being completely revamped. But fear not. We are sure the new one-entree-only approach is far superior to the current array of global, mouthwatering offerings that tempt palettes and lure kids into being well fed and social.

But the early returns this semester have still been promising, despite some iffy weather in January.

The Cameron Crazies were as fervent as they’d been in two years.
