Chew on This


(PHYSICAL) Did you know that chocolate is made from the seeds of Theobroma Cacao tree? Unlike milk chocolate, which has a high content of milk fat solids, dark chocolate has a higher percentage of cacao and contains less sugar. Health benefits are seen when consuming dark chocolate containing 70% cacao in small amounts, 1 oz per day. Sorry white chocolate fans, this sweet isn’t even really chocolate.

Summer 2019

Your first summer at Duke is a great time to explore interests that you haven’t been able to tryout. You may be considering an experience that will cover a wide range of interests, give you great transferable skills, and a provide real world or life changing perspectives. The best advice we can give you is to not put too much pressure on your first-year summer. We want you to do something you enjoy, find meaningful, or that's practical so you develop skills, but it does not have to be a fancy internship at a large cooperation.

A Devil's Perspective

Hey there Duke students! I hope the Spring semester is treating you well so far. I’m definitely busy with classes, clubs, and Career Center blogging, but I think I’ve finally found my groove. With everything settling in at school, I feel less stressed than I did last semester. It feels like I’ve got a handle on my life, both school and social. But… one thing is still looming over my head like a dark and scary rain cloud. The thought of internships.

The last time I was asked to write a reflection for the newsletter, I was in an entirely different place in my life. The semester had just ended, and I traveled home to Vermont to spend time with family and reflect on the past year and things that were going on in my life.  While my reflection last time focused on family, today -- years later -- I find myself thinking about time. The beginning of a new semester is the perfect opportunity to reflect on time, as I hope you had a chance to spend cherished time with family and friends over the winter break. And of course, as we start a new year and semester, that time together feels as if it already passed way too quickly.

Often considered a dream destination, the Philippines is the nation of green rice fields, never sleeping megacities, and volcanoes.

The Philippines, located in South-East Asia, has more than 7,000 islands all preserving amazing beaches, and marine life. The land is highly populated given that it sits at the 12th most populous countries in the world with a growth rate at 2%. In 1946 the Philippines gained independence after years of strikes against the American and Spanish sovereignty.
