As a senior reflecting on my four years at Duke, I’ve embarked on a lot of adventures. I picked up a minor I never expected, lived experiences which completely changed my perspective, and decided on a career path that I didn’t even realize existed four years ago. So here’s a short bucket list to guide you in your exploration of all Duke has to offer.
“My brain has way too many tabs open. 4 of them are frozen and I have no idea where the music is coming from!”
April was supposed to be my time. As someone who had decided to pursue a future career in policy and public sector jobs, I always knew that I wasn’t likely to start getting traction on the job front until late in the Spring semester of my senior year. For those of you who don’t know, for your average policy job, most seniors don’t get hired until April, May, or even later.
If you are a fan of music then you are also (probably) a fan of a music streaming service. While there are many, and many strong opinions about them, I will share from the start (it’s in the title) that I’m a fan of Spotify.
Don't forget to take a break from studying for finals! Here is your one-stop guide to study breaks around campus.
“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.
Ever had those burning (no pun intended) questions about sex and relationships but were just too embarrassed to ask?! Well look no further!
The Sexual Health Advisory Committee (aka The SHAC) will be taking questions and responding to them via blog.
Send your questions about sexual norms, sexual health, relationship advice, sex taboos, figuring out how to know what you like/what works for you, or anything. Expect the unexpected, the truth and sometimes a good laugh. We want to answer your questions and make sure you’re getting credible, honest, transparent information from professionals right here on campus.
Send your questions, concerns, comments, inquiries, suggestions, and master plans to firstname.lastname@example.org and check out the blog to see what comes up!
Congratulations to all graduating students!
The Student Health Fee for Spring Semester 2017 EXPIRES at 5:00 pm on Friday, May 19th. This means that all Duke students who have paid the Spring Fee can continue to utilize Student Health Services (SHS) through May 19th. Depending on your status at Duke, there are different rules that apply after that date. If you are:
Graduating on May 14th – After May 19th, you can no longer be seen as a patient at SHS. You must find another source for health care. The only exception to this is if your SHS provider requests that you follow up for a condition for which you were seen prior to May 19th.
Taking summer classes at Duke – Students who are taking summer classes pay the Summer Health Fee each term.
A nap, a big hug, some really really good food, and snuggling with your dog are a few of the mental images the âTake What You Needâ board offers. The end of the semester can be a stressful time and while a weekend at the beach would be great, sometimes just taking a moment to imagine yourself on vacation is enough to catch your breath.
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.
