“If you do not take random naps, you are not living life” - despondent pre-med student after coming from a chemistry lab.

As finals season approaches, most of us find ourselves running low on sleep. CAPS recommends 6-8 hours of sleep to maximize productivity. Although napping daily isn’t advised (sad, right?), such times call for dire measures- in this case should suffice. No one wants to take the bus back to East or Central Campus or walk down the countless steps to your room in Edens (you might as well just go to Wilson if you needed to work out) just to take a nap.  I asked a couple of students- whose napping habits are questionable- for the perfect napping spots around the Campus Center. 

This list is in no preferential order.

Congratulations to all graduating students!

I enjoy grocery shopping and cooking. But it gets challenging when I’m under a tight budget. It’s even trickier if I’m dedicated to eating healthy when I have a tight budget. At this week’s CLG workshop, we have invited Duke Student Health Nutritionist Toni Ann Apadula with host Șeun Bello Olámosù to answer questions about eating and shopping healthy on a budget.
