Dear second-semester Betty (and any others who might be listening in):
Congratulations! You made it through your first semester at Duke. You figured out the shortcut to get from Physics to the bus stop; found the best coffee on campus and then promptly spent all your food points; and cleaned your room for the first time since move-in. Take a moment, and celebrate yourself.
When second semester starts, it’s going to be a little overwhelming. There are calendars and schedules for classes you aren’t fully familiar with yet, and then SLG rush and club meetings every evening, and then you spend the weekends in recruitment or catching up with friends.
