‘Always going to be a bloodbath’: Duke women’s soccer looks to shift national landscape against No. 2 North Carolina

(09/08/22 11:25am)

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.”

North Carolina to tax student loan debt forgiven by Biden’s plan

(09/06/22 3:21am)

President Joseph Biden announced last month that the federal government would cancel up to $20,000 in federal student loan debt for those who qualify. But while the forgiven debt is exempt from federal tax, North Carolina’s Department of Revenue has clarified that the forgiven debt is still “considered taxable income” by the state. 

Scouting the opponent: Duke football set for road rematch against Northwestern

(09/07/22 12:59pm)

Before the Blue Devils opened their season Friday to a warm and sunny atmosphere and a crowd of more than 20,000 fans at Wallace Wade Stadium, there were no definitive expectations for what to look for in the team. Duke underwent considerable changes after a dry spell in its past few seasons. It won no conference games in 2021 and just one in 2020. Across the two seasons, the Blue Devils tallied just five wins. They were simply struggling to stay afloat as a challenger to any of the opponents they faced.

The cost of eating at WU

(09/06/22 4:00am)

“Let’s get lunch.” It’s a classic Duke student saying, along with “how are you?” And “good, how are you?” And while sometimes “lunch” is replaced by “dinner,” it’s seldom breakfast. Why? Because, especially after freshman year, almost no one eats breakfast at WU, if at all. Why? Because it’s so goddamn expensive—besides, who even eats breakfast, anyway? And when you start to think about scheduling breakfast dates, waking up earlier, balancing your virtual food point budget, and whether Mobile Order will even be working, it’s easier to just skip it than to play the breakfast game.

The Empty Equity Center

(09/06/22 4:00am)

Recently I wrote a piece on the changes made to the Bryan Center, explaining how they would hurt various centers and their connections to students on campus. Well, students have now become acclimated to campus and returned to the various spaces in the Bryan Center they call home. Many people of color on campus recognized and explained that these changes would ultimately cause disruption amongst the spaces meant for marginalized groups. Despite this, upper level Duke administration, who seldom ever visit these spaces, decided to disrupt the lives of students and staff anyway. Now, I have to see a space that I was able to call home stripped away from the students who will come after me.

(09/05/22 2:55pm)

With the weather a breezy 74 degrees Fahrenheit and the sun still shining as kickoff commenced Sunday evening, the Blue Devils marched into TCU's Garvey-Rosenthal Stadium ready to set their momentous season back on an upward trend. With a TCU-record 3,648 fans in attendance and plenty more Horned Frog faithful clad in purple standing around the gates of the field, the pressure was on.
