Wouldn’t it be amazing if we could offer you some secret eating tips to help boost your memory? Well we don’t have any magic formulas but we do have some good advice.

Think Healthy Fats
There is strong evidence that the same anti-inflammatory properties that help protect your heart can improve memory. These fats include fatty fish like salmon and tuna, nuts/seeds, avocado, olive oil and flax.

Dear Undergraduate Student:

The Office of Student Conduct staff welcomes you (back) to Duke!  We know your time is valuable, so with that in mind, here are 10 things to keep in mind this year.  For the overwhelming majority of you, this list will never apply directly to you, so we especially THANK YOU for reading through these items— and perhaps you can be a persuasive voice to your peers in steering them away from some of the negative behaviors described below, should you see them heading down a potentially perilous path.

The Student Health Center will be closed on Monday, September 5th, in observance of the Labor Day holiday.

For after hours care or nurse advice, please call us at 919-681-9355.

The 2016-17 edition of The Duke Community Standard: A Guide for Undergraduates has been released.  This handbook outlines expectations for undergraduate student conduct (and for all students as it relates to Sexual Misconduct) and the procedures for investigating and adjudicating alleged violations of them.  All students who live on campus should have received a copy when they moved in.  Students who live off campus may request a copy by emailing conduct@duke.edu or stopping by the 2nd floor of Crowell Hall on East Campus between 8 AM and 5 PM Monday - Friday.

Hiring is network driven in the media industry. For this reason, Meredith Geisler (P’15), Senior Vice President, at Tandem Sports + Entertainment, agreed to interview students by Skype during the Media-ville event at the 2015 Duke Fall Career Fair.  When Amy Unell and the Duke Career Center approached her about participating, Meredith knew that this was a unique chance to interact with more students than she might be able to through more traditional recruiting and networking. It provided the chance to meet with qualified candidates at Duke, a school that is not in their backyard.  Tandem only has about fifteen people on staff and it would be very difficult for them to

Jewish Life at Duke

It’s First Big Week here at Duke and campus is abuzz with excitement as students begin the Fall 2016 semester. At the Freeman Center for Jewish Life, we’re welcoming students with various events through our flagship JFAM (Jewish First Year Advisory Mentorship) program. JFAM matches incoming first-year students with upperclass students, who offer guidance, support, and friendship in their transition to college life. It's an integral program that helps new students develop personal connections and stronger ties to the Jewish community here at Duke.

Members of the Class of 2020 were personally welcomed to campus by their J-Moms and J-Dads, who visited their dorm rooms during move-in to say “Hi,” answer questions, and deliver some key JLD swag (the fanny packs were a hit!).

Tyrone Jean, Center for Multicultural Affairs

Good evening!

Welcome and bienvenidos class of 2020! My name is Tyrone Jean and I proudly serve as the Assistant Director in the Center for Multicultural Affairs here at Duke University. I am extremely humbled and grateful to have been asked by Mi Gente to deliver the keynote address at this years’ Latinx, Latin American and allies student welcome reception. I wrestled with what messages I wanted to share, which experiences I wanted to recount and thought about how I might leave you inspired as you embark on your first day of class tomorrow.

Due to industry demand and a shift in recruiting trends, many consulting firms will now begin internship recruiting on college campuses during the 2016 fall semester.   This is a change from the past when internship recruitment was limited to later, in the spring semester.  Because of this change, students interested in consulting, will begin interviewing for internships three to five months earlier, in September.
