Over 200 support the Durham-Orange light rail

As a Durham resident and student of the Schools of Medicine and Public Policy, I would like to call on the Duke administration to commit to supporting the Durham-Orange Light Rail. A few classmates and I wrote and delivered the following letter to President Price and Chair Bovender of the Board of Trustees with over 200 signatures from Sanford and the School of Medicine.

Letter: Price restates Duke commitment to financial aid

I want to respond to some recent concerns that have been expressed about the future of the university’s commitment to financial aid with a simple statement: there will be no changes to the financial aid pledges made by Duke University to current undergraduates during your time as Duke students—not to health insurance, not to support for summer programs, not to any of the components that make a Duke education possible for those who could never have considered it so.

Letter: Justice Kavanaugh, in context

While I have no desire to propel division on campus, I believe it is important to understand the facts of who Justice Brett Kavanaugh was in context. I do not dispute the justice’s actions and desire to help women. Logic dictates, however, the character of the justice sober cannot predict his actions while drunk.
