This year, it is estimated that over 46 million turkeys will be consumed in this country on November 28, Thanksgiving Day. With mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, stuffing and pumpkin pie, Thanksgiving not only provides Duke students with a chance to visit with family and friends and take a well-deserved break from campus life, but it also gives all of us an opportunity to acknowledge and express our gratitude for the many things that make our lives meaningful and fun.
Let’s paint the picture, it’s recruitment season for some as it relates to internships, jobs, and joining clubs/organizations.

I am honored to join the entire Duke community in recognizing Veterans Day. We are grateful for the service of the many veterans among our students, staff, faculty, and alumni, and we are very proud to call them members of the Duke family.
Duke University has a long history of active engagement with the armed forces. From the famed 65th General Hospital, which was based at Duke and saved the lives of tens of thousands of soldiers in World War II, to our physician assistant program, which began with veteran students in the 1960's, to the thousands of undergraduate and graduate students who have left our campus to serve in every conflict dating back to World War I, we have been committed to supporting our servicemembers since the earliest days of this institution.
Our flag of the week at the International House is the Nepalese flag. Nepal is a landlocked country located in South Asia. Lying along the slopes of the Himalayan mountain ranges, 75% of Nepal is covered by mountains. The capital of Nepal is Kathmandu.

Do you ever have that feeling where you already know something to be true, but are still occasionally epiphanically surprised by it? I get that feeling a lot, mostly having to do with simple facts that have become part of the fabric of my everyday life, but are still somehow awe-inspiring.

This month, I talked to Lou-Ann Stock, who is visiting from France to practice her English. She arrived in Durham one month ago. Despite her initial trepidation about her language skills, Lou-Ann was quick to immerse herself in American.
