Barack Obama was the first democratic presidential candidate 
elected by North Carolina since 1976. Early voting, including at 
Duke's poll, contributed to his victory. Duke Democrats made 
major contributions to the effort by registering students, organizing 
rallies, and bringing notable figures, such as Kal Perm, to campus. 
Duke College Republicans were also active but conducted most of 
their events off campus.

East Campus is home to the First-Year Experience. Housing 
exclusively freshmen on East has been extremely successful 
and popular with students. Although upperclassmen often 
complain about their living spaces on West and Central 
Campus, almost every student is nostalgic for their dorm 
from freshman year. 


Through collaborating on community service projects in 
Durham, incoming students participating in Project Build con 
structed relationships with other freshman and upperclassmen 





w ■ f 


Incoming freshman participating in Duke's oldest pre-orientation 
program spent 2 weeks getting to know each other through back- 
packing in Duke Forest and Pisgah National Forest. 

Duke's newest pre-orientation program challenged 18 freshmen 
to impact the Durham community by designing projects to meet 
the needs of underserved young adults. 





Men of the freshman class of 2012 showed 
off their talents during the male beauty 
pageant held in White Lecture Hall. One 
male from every East Campus dorm per- 
formed an act, competing to be crowned 
with the title of Mr. East Campus. 


Duke Diya sponsored a celebration of Holi, 
the traditional Indian festival of color, at 
the East Campus Gazebo. Although the 
annual event's highlight is always throw- 
ing colored water and powder at friends, 
it also includes outdoor games such as 
kabadi, soccer, and Frisbee.

The summer reading for the class of 2012, 
Dave Eggers 'What Is the What,' inspired 
students to gather on East Campus and 
decorate a large canvas tent with messages 
of hope to end the genocide in Darfur. 
The tent was taken to Washington D.C. to 
raise awareness, and then sent to Eastern 
Chad to provide shelter for refugees.

Students were surprised to learn that the relatively modern 
dorm Few, rather than Craven or Crowell, would be renovated 
during the summer and fall of 2008 in order to update the air 
conditioning system. Fraternities and selective living groups 
with sections in Few were given temporary residence in other 
dorms on West, pushing independents to seek housing off 
campus or on Central. However, juniors returning from the 
fall semester abroad were happy to have the opportunity to 
live in the newly opened dorm, rather than on Central, and 
praised the increased number of modernized common rooms 
and environmentally friendly improvements.

Instead of speed dating, students partici- 
pated in 3 minutes of rapid-fire question- 
ing and discussion to find new friends. The 
Sophomore Experience put this new twist 
on an old tradition to ease the transition 
from East to West. 






Although the class of 2009 had been told that it would be 
Dukes first class to have the opportunity to live on a new 
Central Campus, logistical delays postponed renovations and 
left students frustrated by outdated architecture, lack of facili- 
ties, and inadequate security. This year, students were disap- 
pointed to learn that due to the economic downturn, any 
construction would be delayed until the distant future. In the 
meantime, the administration proposed adding restaurants 
and allowing sophomores and selective living groups to move 
to Central in 2010, as part of an attempt to reduce isolation 
and improve the campus culture. 



Students enjoyed the outdoors at Party Central, Central 
Campus Council's biggest annual event. The water slide was 
especially popular. 


The 2nd annual Inter-Greek Council Stroll Show 
brought together members of the four Greek coun- 
cils on campus to compete to create the best male and 
female stroll performances.

Blue Devils United 

BDU is a new and unique student group that was formed by the combination of AQUADuke and Duke 
Allies, which represented the LGBT and Ally populations at Duke. Since the merge in Spring 2008, BDU 
has actively participated in a variety of events on campus. 2008-2009 events included Coming Out Day 
on the Plaza, Transgender Day of Remembrance, World AIDS Day, and the Annual Drag Show. This year 
BDU also participated in political events like National Day of Silence, and lobbied in support of the Anti- 
Bullying Bill up for vote in North Carolina. 



Variations of DIRA have existed for over 20 years, but the organization revitalized itself 4 years ago. Now, 
DIRA coordinates a national high school Model United Nations conference that attracts over 400 students 
from across North America. The group's competitive travel team has brought back many individual honors 
and delegation awards from the collegiate Model United Nations circuit. The campus affairs branch col- 
laborates with other institutions and this semester worked with the Union, Human Rights Coalition, and 
others to bring to campus the Burmese monks who led the Saffron Revolution. Ties are being established 
with academic departments, centers, and programs like the Grand National Strategy to further find oppor- 
tunities to bring global affairs to the Duke community.

This fall proved to be a turnaround for the Duke football team, under 
the direction of the new head coach David Cutcliffe. The Blue Devils 
finished 1-7 in the ACC and 4-8 overall , grinding their way to a win- 
ning season and a new image. Highlights of this season included a win 
against James Madison University, the first home win in three years, 
and a crushing victory over the University of Virginia, the first con- 
ference win in four years. Another rousing memory from this season 
was Duke's grueling away game against Wake Forest. The two teams 
entered overtime after a very close game, but unfortunately Wake's field 
goal culminated in the Blue Devils' fall to the Demon Deacons, 33-30. 

Senior Michael Tauiliili was recognized as one of the top lineback- 
ers in the country, with multiple All-American nods and rec- 
ognition on the All-ACC First Team. Additionally, senior wide 
receiver Eron Riley and junior quarterback Thaddeus Lewis 
received All-ACC Second Team accolades. Junior defensive tackle 
Vince Oghobaase was recognized with an honorable mention. 

By the end of the season, it was clear that the "new day" that 
Coach Cutcliffe promised at the beginning of the season had 
been fulfilled. The team made significant improvements in a 
number of statistics, including total offensive yards, rush- 
ing yards, and rushing and pass defense. With multiple 
wins, including one within the ACC, interest in the program 
increased significantly. Attendance at Wallace Wade surpassed 
30,000, a first for Duke football, four times during the season, v 







Volleyball ended its season with its fourth con- 
secutive appearance in the second round of the 
NCAA Tournament, after upsetting No. 25 San 
Francisco and falling to No. 9 UCLA 3-0. The 
team had its fifth straight 20-victory season, with 
a record of 25-9 overall and 15-5 in the ACC, 
tying UNC for the best in-conference record. 

All-ACC performers senior Jourdan Norman and 
junior Rachael Moss both appeared on the AVCA 
All-America Honorable Mention national list. 
Kellie Catanach and Sophia Dunworth were both 
selected for the ACC All-Freshman Team. Apart 
from their All-ACC accolades, Moss, Norman, and 
Catanach also grabbed All-East Region honors. 
In addition, Norman smashed the school record 
for most career blocks with 640. Wrapping up a 
record-breaking season, head coach Jolene Nagel 
saw her 200th win at Duke against UNC, while 
Moss and seniors Sue Carls and Aana Wherry 
appeared on the ESPN The Magazine Academic 
All-District III Team. Four women were recog- 
nized for their academic achievements with place- 
ment on the All-ACC Academic Volleyball Team.

Unfortunately, Dukes tournament run ended with a 
tough 77-54 loss to Villanova in the Sweet Sixteen. This 
loss marked the fifth consecutive year that Duke was 
eliminated from the tournament before the Elite Eight. 

Junior Gerald Henderson was a leading force for the

Music Festival. Blue Devils United sponsored the annual 
Drag Show, which featured students in addition to the pro- 
fessional, Erica Daniels. Performances included renditions 
of Beyonce's 'Single Ladies,' Rihanna's 'Disturbia,' Britney 
Spears' 'Womanizer,' and Bobby Valentino's 'Let Him Go.' 
The performers strutted their stuff throughout the packed 
crowd and encouraged participation. 


■ Homecoming weekend got off to a great start in Page Audito- 
rium as Duke's National Pan-Hellenic Council put on its annual 
step show. Each group created unique performances in order 
to tell their organizations history. White gloves and pies were 
some of the unconventional props used by this year's competi- 
tors. Kappa Alpha Psi was the winner out of the fraternities and 
also received the highest overall score, making them Grand 
Champions. Among the sororities, Zeta Phi Beta used their 
talent to outstep their competition. 






■ Karamu Drama Group's fall play was 'A Day of Absence' 
by Douglas Turner Ward. The plot revolves around a small 
Southern town in which all the African American citizens 
disappear, and the White community must struggle to over- 
come the consequences. To further emphasize issues of 
discrimination and race, the African American actors per- 
formed with their faces entirely covered by white makeup.

■ Duke's Theater Studies Department and Hoof 'n Horn col- 
laborated to produce a two week performance of Stephen Sond- 
heim's musical, "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet 
Street." With director John Clums instruction and Jayme Mel- 
lemas set design, the lead characters were able to portray the 
story of a barber who kills his customers and bakes meat pies 
with their remains. This musical performance alternated major 
roles, giving many actors a chance to display their creative tal- 
ents. Audience members were encouraged to dress up as their 
favorite characters on the Halloween night performance.

~ Students were disappointed that authorities restricted 
access to Franklin Street this year, preventing Dukies from 
participating in the annual Halloween festivities at Chapel 
Hill. DUU and Campus Council responded by increasing 
Halloween celebrations on campus. Pumpkin carving on 
Main Quad during the day gave way to a nighttime Devil's 
Eve party with costume competitions, free food, and a per- 
formance of Michael Jackson's 'Thriller' by Dance Slam.

Awaaz, sponsored by Duke Diya, lived up to its reputation as 
the largest student-run cultural show at Duke, showcasing 16 
vibrant and colorful performances from guests such as Duke 
Dhamaka, Speak of the Devil, DBS Raas, Defining Movement, 
and Duke Chinese Dance. The MCs, brother and sister Aneesh 
and Sasha Kapur, brought out the humorous side of South 
Asian culture through the theme 'The Office: Dunder Mumbai.' 
Senior Bhangra, the largest act in Awaaz history, fit 94 mem- 
bers of the Class of 2009 onto the stage of Page Auditorium. 
A dinner prior to the performance serving traditional South 
Asian food and dancing lessons at the afterparty rounded out 
the cultural experience.

■ The famed improvisational comedy troupe from Chicago, 
The Second City, was brought to campus for the second time 
by the LivEnt committee of DUU. Their hilarious routine, 
which brought a mixture of satire, wit, and creativity to the 
stage and included a guest performance by Duke University 
Improv, kept the audience laughing throughout the entire

■ The sound of 50 melodious undergraduate and graduate 
voices singing seasonal music moved from outside to inside 
the chapel to begin Duke Chorale's annual Christmas con- 
cert. The show was directed by Rodney A. Wynkoop, Profes- 
sor of the Practice of Music and Director of Chapel Music, 
and was composed of traditional American carols as well as 
works by Christopher Rouse. Rouse's 'Karolju' was written 
based on the large collection of Christmas carols that have 
been written over centuries. Donations of non-perishable 
food items were accepted at the door for charity. 

The Duke Chamber Players held their November con- 
cert against the backdrop of Von der Heyden Pavilion. The 
group, composed of undergraduate and graduate musicians, 
performed recognizable holiday music such as Pyotr Ilyich 
Tchaikovsky's 'The Nutcracker Suite' and John Williams' 
music from 'Home Alone.'

■ Following the success of their fall show, Hoof n' Horn pro- 
duced a winter performance of the comic book classic 'It's 
a Bird, It's a Plane... It's Superman.' The show was directed 
by Dan Lerman and included a superb cast. Superman was 
played by senior Nate Jones, and the leading lady, Lois Lane, 
was played by Chelsea Laverack. 'Superman' was a comedy 
rather than a dramatic piece, and the bright sets and colorful 
costumes helped to elicit lots of laughs from audience mem- 
bers and crew members alike.

■ During personal checks at K-ville on Friday, February 6th, 
DUU sponsored an attempt to break the world record for the 
largest Cupid Shuffle. Five hundred and ten students gath- 
ered in the IM building gym and participated in the dance to 
music by the rapper Cupid. 



■ Students escaped the cold of K-ville by staying in the IM 
building after the Cupid Shuffle to participate in the 24-hour 
Dance Marathon, an annual event benefiting the Duke Chil- 
dren's Hospital. In addition to dancing there was a karaoke 
contest and a basketball shootout, and hot chocolate was 
served. Old Duke-Carolina games were playing in the back- 
ground and WXDU DJed for several hours.

■ Students gathered on Main Quad to watch the Duke Uni- 
versity Powwow, sponsored by the Native American Student 
Alliance. Although the main attraction was the 5 hours of 
dancing and musical performances, the event also included 
free food and t-shirts.

■ This was Duke Arab Students Organization's first year 
hosting Arabian Nights, a showcase of Middle Eastern 
culture. The performance, in Reynolds Theater, featured a 
number of acts including Arabic singing, Dabkeh dancing, 
and a Middle Eastern fashion show. 


■ The Asian Students Association's Lunar New Year 2009 
celebrated the Year of the Ox. The show featured groups of 
East Asian culture and heritage, such as Duke China Dance 
Troupe, while also showcasing other talented performers 
such as Duke Raas and Defining Movement. Traditional and 
modern acts originating from Asia were balanced with per- 
formances intended to challenge the stereotypes of Asian- 
Americans on campus. The Masters of Ceremonies, back by 
popular demand, were Andrew Hsiao, Lawrence Chen, and 
Paul Yen. All proceeds collected from the show benefited 
the China Tomorrow Education Fund, a charity that builds 
schools in impoverished areas of rural China.

■ The Duke Swing Dancing Club and the Casablanca 
Orchestra Big Band enhanced the atmosphere of the 1920s, 
the theme of DUU's annual spring cocktail party held in 
the Sarah P. Duke Gardens. Students mingled with faculty, 
played roulette and blackjack, and enjoyed the free food and 
open bar. 



■ Duke Unmasked was a 3-part movement designed to break 
down social comparmentalization on campus. The project 
culminated in the UnMasquerade, a semiformal cocktail 
party held in French Science. The event, sponsored by DUU 
and Duke Honor Council, attempted to introduce students 
to each other based on their compatibility as determined 
through an online personality survey that they completed 
in advance.

■ One of the highlights of the Black Student Alliance Invita- 
tional weekend was the fashion show, 'Swagger Like Us: An 
Ode to Black History at Duke.' Although the event was open 
to all members of the Duke community and the Triangle, the 
show was geared toward prospective students. Donations 
were solicited at the door for the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric 
AIDS Foundation. 


■ Defining Movement is one of Dukes favorite dance groups, 
known for its commitment to promoting cultural unity 
through dance. Although the group is in demand through- 
out the year to perform at Homecoming, Awaaz, and many 
other events, their most anticipated show of the year is 
always their annual showcase. Their 7th annual showcase, 
Crea7ion, featured dances performed and choreographed 
by the 28 members of DefMo, with guest appearances by 
DefMo alumni.

■ Popular for events such as Salsa on the Steps when they 
teach students the basics of Latin dance in front of the chapel, 
members of Duke's Premier Latin Dance Group, Sabrosura, 
displayed their talents during their spring showcase, Quan- 
tum of Salsa 2009. James Bond was the theme of the fun 
evening of salsa, cha cha, merengue, flamenco, and bachata 



If there's one thing that unites college students of all ages, 
genders, and ethnicities, it's food. International Association's 
International FoodFest brought hundreds of Duke students 
together on the Bryan Center Plaza, serving traditional cui- 
sine native to more than 15 different cultures from all over 
the world. 



International Association's spring semester event, Spring- 
ternational, filled Main Quad with venders selling imported 
and local goods and stands offering cuisine from countries 
around the world. Students relished the opportunity to 
indulge in treats not typically available on Duke's campus, 
such as polish sausages, gyros, falafel, and many other 
equally enticing options. Satiated students took a break from 
eating to watch performances by Duke Dhamaka and other 
cultural student organizations. 



■ Students look forward to the last day of classes all year 
long. They eagerly anticipate not only the end of tests and 
homework assignments, but also the festivities of LDOC. 
This year, bands included Girl Talk, Gym Class Heroes, and 
Ben Folds. Student groups Mike Posner and the Brain Trust 
and the Pitchforks opened for Girl Talk and Ben Folds. Other 
activities included free dinner in the Great Hall and dancing 
on the quad. Since LDOC was held on Earth Day this year, 
the free t-shirts were made from organic cotton and efforts 
were made by sponsors DUU and Campus Council to mini- 
mize pollution on Main Quad.

Featuring a vibrant color scheme that includes 
orange, magenta, and red, the Link was the hot 
spot for studying this year. Located on Lower Level 
1 of Perkins Library, the Link opened as part of 
the Perkins Project renovation of Duke University 
Libraries. It is a quiet and comfortable area where 
students can study for midterms, work on home- 
work, or simply relax between classes. The Link 
fosters collaboration between faculty and students 
with 11 group study rooms, 4 seminar rooms, 
and 6 classrooms, in addition to large booths and 
countless tables and chairs. Each room contains 
ample study space and large white boards for jot- 
ting down notes. 

Blue Devils have found the Link to be a techno- 
logical haven, with a walk up service desk offering 
computer support and equipment loans. It has a 
Mac computer lab for students who prefer using 
an Apple to using a PC. The wall of 48 Samsung 
televisions and the creatively shaped chairs also 
contribute to the Link's futuristic setting. 


Areas of

Every year, students enrolled in dance classes at 
Duke are eligible to audition to perform in Novem- 
ber Dances, presented by the Duke University 
Dance Program. This year, senior Audrey Fenske, 
one of the first students to take advantage of the 
dance major established in 2006, choreographed a 
ballet piece entitled "A Proper Hysteric." The show 
culminated in "Torelli," a modern dance piece 
choreographed by Twyla Tharp, who had been 
awarded an honorary degree from Duke in 2008. 



To celebrate the 200th anniversary of Felix Men- 
delssohn's birth, Duke Symphony Orchestra, 
directed by Harry Davidson, collaborated with 
the Department of Music and the Department of 
Theater Studies to present his Overture and Inci- 
dental Music to William Shakespeare's "A Mid- 
summer Nights Dream." It was accompanied by an 
abridged version of the play prepared by R. Larry 
Todd, Daryl W. Palmer, and Jay O'Berski. The show 
included passionate performances by undergradu- 
ate students and the Durham Children's Choir.

Summer 2008 was the first year of DukeEngage, 
a program designed to allow Duke students to 
apply what they learn in the classroom to an 
intensive civic engagement experience. Funded 
by the Duke Endowment and the Bill & Melinda 
Gates Foundation, 360 students received grants 
to pursue individual and group projects in the 
United States and abroad. 

Eight undergraduate students participated in 
a pilot program in India directed by Dr. Leela 
Prasad, Associate Professor of Ethics and Indian 
Religions at Duke. The goal of the program was 
to increase the breadth and depth of education 
young students receive at three different schools 
in the city of Hyderabad. Duke students worked 
closely with a goverment school, a private school 
for low income children, and a school for the 
children of Air Force officers in order to develop 
art projects, English language and creative writing 
programs, and perform science demonstrations.

"There are two kinds of students the gods give me. One kind they dump on 
me like a bushel of potatoes. I do not like potatoes... The other kind - and 
they are very few! - they... wish a little bit to become scientists, to work with 
bugs, and to make mistakes. Those - ah, those! - I seize them... I teach them 
right away the ultimate lesson of science, which is to wait and to doubt. Of 
he potatoes, I demand nothing; of the foolish ones like you, who think I 
could teach them something, I demand everything." —Max Gottlieb, quoted 
in "Arrowsmith" (1924) by Sinclair Lewis

Most memborable free t-shirt incident: My 
favorite was at the 2006 Carrie Shoemaker 
NROTC Roadrace. Midway through the 5K 
race a thunderstorm unleashed a downpour 
on the Duke Golf Course and turned the 
trail to mud. When I got back to my car I 
had nothing to wipe the mud off with except 
for the t-shirt. Even after many bleachings 
the faint clay stains on it remind me of run- 
ning in the rain. 

Favorite flavor loco-pop: Verry Berry 

Best piece of advice from a professor or fac- 
ulty member? You are limited only by the 
laws of physics. 

If it weren't for Duke I would be not quite as 
proud to be a North Carolinian.

If you could bequeath something from your 
4 years at Duke to anyone, what would it be? 
I wish I could impart my knowledge and 
passion for the Triangle music scene with 
everyone in the Duke community. It's really 
one of the best-kept secrets around! 

Favorite flavor loco-pop: Mango Chile 

What's a talent or skill that you discovered 
or honed in on at college? At Duke I gained 
an appreciation for visual arts and enacting 
political criticism and social justice through 
art education. I also found that I really enjoy 
playing wind and percussion instruments 
with my band for people on the streets of 
Durham and Chapel Hill. 

If it weren't for Duke I would be assembling 
diodes in an engineering factory in Bucha- 
rest, Romania.

Most memborable free t-shirt incident: I 
don't usually go for free t-shirts. I'm more of 
a free food guy. 

Favorite flavor loco-pop: Now we're talk- 
ing... Chocolate Fudge Brownie. 

If you could bequeath something from your 
4 years at Duke to anyone, what would it be? 
I would encourage new students to seek out 
and befriend others with whom they share 
common interests as soon as they possibly 
can. I have had so many great experiences 
getting to know and work with really tal- 
ented friends, and I only wish I had met 
them sooner. 

If it weren't for Duke I would be less sure 
that I want to make music for the rest of my

Best piece of advice from a professor or fac- 
ulty member? You could do better. 

Favorite flavor loco-pop: I'm told Mexican 
chocolate is to die for. I've staved off for 
that reason. 

If you could bequeath something from your 
4 years at Duke to anyone, what would it 
be? Readiness to stretch out those funny 
spheres we call our comfort zones. Until the 
cheap elastic snaps. 

If it weren't for Duke I would be unhappy 
in the vague way of someone who has no 
idea what she is missing. Also, possibly 
living on canned soup and animal crackers 
fifteen years down the road.

What's a talent or skill that you discovered 
or honed in on at college? Getting high- 
quality sleep out of mini-naps during the 
day. Freshman year, between classes I didn't 
make the trek back to East and instead took 
naps in Bostock, BioSci, the LSRC, and the 
track girls' locker room. 

Favorite flavor loco-pop: It's a tie between 
White Chocolate Apricot and Chocolate 
Fudge Brownie. 

If you could bequeath something from your 
4 years at Duke to anyone, what would it 
be? The creative writing pieces I wrote for 
my Arts in Contemporary Society FOCUS 
during my first semester at Duke. Some of 
them captured the mix of idealism, inno- 
cence, excitement, fear, and anxiety that 
exists at the start of college, and the rest are 
just entertainingly bad. 

If it weren't for Duke I would be completely 
oblivious to college basketball. 

"Whether you believe that you can or you can't, you are 
usually right. Believe that you can." -Anonymous, 

Chamindra Goonewardene 

DUU President 
Pauly Dogs Employee 

Worst free t-shirt incident: The LDOC of 
my sophomore year. There was no line, and 
there were people crawling under the tables 
and jumping over people to get a t-shirt. It 
was complete and utter chaos. 

Favorite flavor loco-pop: Mojito lime 

If you could bequeath something from your 
4 years at Duke to anyone, what would it be? 
Get to know your professors as well as you 
can. There are some amazing individuals 
who will add a significant amount of value 
to your college experience. You have just 
four years, so make sure you get to know as 
many of them as possible 

If it weren't for Duke I would be not as strong, 
because I would not have been challenged as 
much by the experiences that I have gained 
both in the classroom and outside the class- 

['It took me a long time and most of the world to learn what I know 
ibout love and fate and the choices we make, but the heart of it came 
p me in an instant, while I was chained to a wall and being tortured. 

realized, somehow, through the screaming in my mind, that even in 
hat shackled, bloody helplessness, I was still free: free to hate the men 
Who were torturing me, or to forgive them. It doesn't sound like much 

know. But in the flinch and bite of the chain, when it's all you've got, 
'hat freedom is a universe of possibility. And the choice you make, 
between hating and forgiving, can become the story of your life." 

Shantaram, Gregory David Roberts
