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.

Letter: On the bathroom stall swastika

A cowardly engraving of a swastika was found on the door of a bathroom stall in the Language building on Duke’s West Campus. Although this might seem inconsequential, this anti-Semitic drawing is in line with a global wave of anti-Semitism that has found its way on to many college campuses.


Students rallied recently for changing the name of Carr Building.

Letter: On the Carr building

Regarding the faculty and student protests about changing the name of the Julian Carr building because he was a white supremacist and Klan supporter, if the protesters are standing on principle then they have to also demand the name of Duke University has to be changed back to Trinity.
