Exclusively for the Class of 2016, the Senior Sneak Peek is your first look inside West Union—and no celebration is complete without great food, free giveaways and exciting events. The fun begins at the grand opening of your new on-campus pub, Devil’s Krafthouse. Click here to register!

Attending is easy. Just register for your chosen event date and time, and then collect your wristband in advance. Please make sure you let your friends know which seating you plan to attend.  You can register online as a group, but each senior will need to pick up their own wristband. Seatings are limited.

Thumbnail Have you ever felt happy just from walking into a colorful day? The sky is blue, the trees are green, and the earth has red, purples, yellows, and browns. Well, today’s blog is about adding some color to your plate as well as your life.

Yes, I am talking about vegetables and fruits (hereafter referred to as “V & F.”)

Duke Dining has added three new additions to its program in their search for vendors that will continue to compliment and enhance the dining program. Tijuana Flats and Dunkin Donuts/Baskin Robbins have partnered with the Merchants on Points (MOPS) program, off-campus vendors that deliver to campus and Belgian Waffle Crafters has joined the food truck lineup.

As the Bryan Center undergoes construction we are reminded of the generous donors who supported the inception of the facility over 30 years ago. We would like to thank all of those who have offered support to the Bryan Center over the years. We truly appreciate all that our donors do for us!

Dear students,

I was awakened early this morning with the news that a noose was found hung on the Bryan Center plaza. I can’t begin to describe the disgust and anger I felt, and still feel. Though it has since been removed, the photos are everywhere and its hateful message will sadly pervade and persist for a long time.

To whomever committed this hateful and stupid act, I just want to say that if your intent was to create fear, it will have the opposite effect. Today, fear will be among the reactions students, and especially, students of color, will have. Be assured that the Duke community will provide all the support necessary to help us all get through this. In time, each of these cowardly acts of bias and hatred will strengthen our resolve to love and support each other.
