Duke lacrosse situation [01 Mar 2007|02:20pm]
Are any of you feeling the effects of the lacrosse situation as Duke alums?

I'm back on campus as an employee, so when the story first broke, I had to walk around the news trucks between my parking space and work. Away from work, it came up a fair amount in conversation at first, but has died down. As a Durham resident, I voted in the election in which Nifong was elected DA. I don't always vote in off-year elections, but felt compelled to cast a vote against him for the way he handled the situation.

Have you read the Rolling Stone article about Duke that came out afterward? It describes a social scene that seems pretty different from my days at Duke, at least from my perspective. Your reactions?

Big women's basketball game this afternoon! [25 Feb 2007|01:56pm]
[ mood | cheerful ]

Anyone planning to watch the women's game against Carolina on TV (@ 4 on ESPN) this afternoon? Should be a great game, as always! Glad it'll be in Cameron. What a great season they've had!

New basketball season [15 Nov 2006|03:55pm]
I went to the season opener against Columbia Sunday night, and enjoyed watching this year's team in action! I feel for the football team this year, and hope they can at least beat Carolina at the end.

Hurricane Relief [01 Sep 2005|11:54pm]

Not sure if anyone is really checking this community yet, but I just found this info regarding Hurricane Katrina relief:

Chris Duhon establishes fund to help his hometown of Slidell, LA. http://www.nba.com/bulls/community/duhon_relief_050830.html

Just FYI, in case you're looking for a place (another place?) to donate.

welcome [10 Aug 2005|01:54pm]

[ mood | busy ]

I thought it would be nice to round up all the Duke grads around LiveJournal. I know the LJ team recently started collecting data on schools and hopefully they will make use of that soon so it will be easier to find people.

Anyway, use this community to discuss whatever: Duke memories, networking, classes, basketball, where you are now... Just whatever. And if you know of any other alumni on LJ, please send them this way!
