One of last year's seniors (and a former DUWELL intern), Rose O'Connor, was inspired to write this blog in the spring of 2012, her last semester at Duke. As we approach Thanksgiving time, it seems especially appropriate to consider gratitude and how to appreciate the small things in life...
Hey all! My name is Jeff Day and I am a rising Sophomore here at Duke University who is an Electrical and Computer Engineering major with a possible Math double major or minor. First of all I would like to welcome the Class of 2016 to Duke! You are truly in for the ride of your life and I hope you come to appreciate this unique place as much as I have over the past year. Although I am a very recent addition to the True Blue cast (found out I was going to be in it about two weeks ago) I was really excited to be able to go back to Duke early to be a meaningful part of O-week. I just finishe
Hi Class of 2016! My name is Krystina Quow and Iâm a rising SENIOR. Not too long ago I was anxious and excited freshmen who couldnât wait to start my Duke experience. Before I came to Duke, I made a college checklist for orientation week:
My name is Jason and I am a rising junior who is a Neuroscience major and Chemistry minor, but have always had a passion for wellness and healthy living, especially in the Duke community. This fall, I will once again be a part of the True Blue cast, though I am currently in Beirut, Lebanon with DukeEngage accomplishing some great strides in tobacco regulation and smoking cessation in the Middle East. The city here is absolutely beautiful and the food is delicious! I encourage all of you to apply to DukeEngage in the future; it’s a very enlightening, challenging, and eye-opening experience.
Have you heard of True Blue? If youâre a returning Duke student, you probably remember bits and pieces from your busy orientation week. If youâre a student who is coming to Duke this fall youâll get to see True Blue for yourself, soon enough!
