(09/09/22 2:12am)

Duke is offering a newly formatted COVID-19 booster shot that provides greater protection against the Omicron variant to eligible members of the Duke community, according to a Thursday email sent to students, faculty and staff from the COVID-19 Vaccination Planning Work Group. 


Transcending sexual consent

(09/09/22 11:51am)

Let’s face it: consent won’t end the culture of sexual harassment at Duke. We can sexualize consent all we want, yet the fact remains that giving and asking for permission with sexual progression is overwhelmingly shaped by gender expectations, alcohol consumption, and the pressure to engage in casual sex. Not to mention how years of campaigning for the importance of consent has failed to resolve the epidemic of sexual assault on campus. 


It’s easy to be scared

Like many people I have a bucket list. It’s really nothing fancy. In fact, it’s more of a vague recollection of all the things that has ever piqued my interest over the last nineteen years of my life. Despite that, it’s still something that I can look back to and go, “Oh yeah, I’ve always wanted to do that!” My list keeps on getting longer, and longer, and longer.

Amid the typical bustle, Duke Student Government President Lana Gesinsky, a senior, sat at one of the few dry tables to make good on her campaign promise of creating Pulse Checks, a way for students to informally ask questions in-person and give feedback to DSG. 




Experiential orientation proposes an equity issue

(09/08/22 4:00am)

In the weeks prior to my early move-in, I had somehow managed to convince myself that I was on the cusp of a great journey by the name of “Experimental Orientation.” The only problem was that I had vastly misread every email I received about my upcoming two weeks at Duke. Said journey, turns out, was actually titled “Experiential Orientation.” Yet, as I packed up my belongings with an absence of information on scheduling and what my program even stood for, I realized that “experimental” was a far more appropriate description of what was to come.

Last year, Duke rolled into Chapel Hill and handed North Carolina its first Tobacco Road rivalry loss since 2015. After the game, Blue Devil captain Caitlin Cosme declared, “There's a new era, and it's a Duke era. And I never want to go back.”
