Administrators and the chair of the African & African American studies department reflected on the outcome of Chauvin’s trial on Wednesday. Students and other community members gathered on the quad in front of the Chapel to watch.
As the year draws to a close, we’ve asked members of the Duke community to send in their photos and videos from a year like no other in Duke’s history. We hope that this compilation shows you the diversity of experience that Blue Devils had, and at the same time the common elements we share. Regardless of where we were, we were all part of life at Duke.
Last year, Duke students were forced to trade their vibrant spring lives for closed doors, covered faces and bucketloads of hand sanitizer. With COVID-19 vaccinations more accessible and students back on campus, this spring has brought back joy and vibrancy to the lives of not only students, but also animals and nature on campus.
Duke’s housing practices will largely return to normal in the fall, but a fraction as many students as normal chose to live in selective housing sections.
Senior Doha Ali and third-year law student Gerardo Párraga were chosen by nominating committees and President Vincent Price as Duke’s next undergraduate and graduate Young Trustees, respectively.
Duke has paused use of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine, in keeping with a Tuesday move by the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services to temporarily stop using the vaccine after reports of rare blood clots in people who had received it.
All students will have to be vaccinated for COVID-19 before they can enroll for the fall semester, President Vincent Price announced Friday.
To mark the end of this year like no other, we’re seeking submissions of photos, videos, audio files and other media documenting the last year in Duke’s history. There are no format requirements: You can send anything from a professional photo of students hanging out on the quad to a grainy 3-second Snapchat video of a socially distanced meal or a Zoom screenshot of a remote class. Submissions are due Friday, April 16.
