From 2 missed checks to Tent 1 for the Duke-UNC game

After a season filled with wind, snow and administrators preventing students from burning benches, Tent 1 will be the first group of 12 students through the doors of Cameron Indoor Stadium when Duke hosts the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Saturday.

Every Sunday in the Carr building, MFA students curate "salons" where they screen experimental film.

Racism? Blame Duke

I’m usually not a confrontational person. Honestly, most interpersonal communication kind of terrifies me, and I will go to great lengths to avoid it (hence the existence of this column). 


Older, wiser and still overwhelmed

Welcome back to campus! Hope you’re feeling ready for that first beautiful view of the chapel, first super late night in Perkins, and first encounters with all of the bright-eyed, confused-looking first-years who are now on campus. With the start of a new school year comes the traditional deluge of advice, goal setting, and ‘we back’ Snapchat stories, so I figured I’d throw in my two cents. However, the first-years have had enough of people talking to them this week. They’ve already heard how amazing their Duke experience will be and to take advantage of all the wonderful opportunities coming their way, so instead, this one is for the sophomores. I feel totally qualified to give this advice, since I myself am a sophomore (meaning I’ve got about ten days of not being a first-year under my belt) and have now been to O-Week twice, so obviously I know everything.
