Tim Cook

Commencement Speaker By Bre Bradham Local and National News Editor

Tim Cook, Fuqua ’88, is the CEO of one of the world’s largest and bestknown corporations—and he is this year’s commencement speaker. Cook was announced as the pick through a video introduction at a men’s basketball game against Pittsburgh in January. He will be joined by student speaker Deeksha Malhotra, a senior, in addressing the more than 5,500 Duke graduates. “I’m honored to be returning to Duke this weekend to help celebrate the Class of 2018,” he wrote in an email Monday. “I graduated from Fuqua 30 years ago, and the friends and memories I made at Duke are among the most treasured of my life.” Cook, an Alabama-native, came to Fuqua with an undergraduate degree from Auburn University, where he majored in industrial engineering and graduated in 1982. At Fuqua, Cook excelled academically and was named a Fuqua Scholar—an honor reserved for the top 10 percent of students in each class—and earned his master’s of business administration. He joined Duke’s Board of Trustees in 2015 and has served on its facilities and environment committee, the audit, risk and compliance committee and the business and finance committee. The well-known executive did not always work for Apple. Before joining Steve Jobs there in 1988, he spent time working with Compaq and as the vice president of corporate materials. He has also spent 12 years working with IBM, including as the director of North American

fulfillment for the company. During his time at Apple, Cook headed up the company’s MacIntosh division and served as chief operating officer. As COO, he was responsible for all of the technology giant’s operations and sales worldwide. This included end-to-end management of the company’s supply chain across all markets. After taking over as CEO from Steve Jobs in August 2011 due to his illness, Cook led Apple to become the world’s most valuable and largest publicly traded corporation. When he publicly announced that he is gay in 2014, he became the first openly gay CEO of a Fortune 500 company. Cook also serves on the board of directors for Nike and the National Football Foundation.

He has received a number of high-profile awards since taking the helm at Apple, including Fortune Magazine’s World’s Greatest Leader Award in 2015 and the Human Rights Campaign’s Visibility Award in the same year. He was announced as this year’s speaker in a surprise video shown to students before the men’s basketball game against Pittsburgh in January, in a video including President Vincent Price, two Duke students and—after his name was revealed—Cook. Price said in a January press release that he is “absolutely delighted” that Cook is returning to campus to be this year’s commencement speaker. He also noted the CEO’s relationship to the University’s values.

“Throughout his career, Tim has embodied Duke’s values of innovation and service to society, whether through his contributions to Apple’s groundbreaking technology or his advocacy for social justice,” Price said. “I can imagine no better person, and no bigger Duke fan, to inspire the Class of 2018.” Senior Matthew King said in the January release that he felt Cook is a fantastic pick for this year’s commencement. “He cares deeply about Duke, and he’s a Blue Devil through and through,” King said. “Many of us aspire to be like Tim Cook when we grow up, so what could be better than to hear from him directly?” Kavya Sekar, a master of public policy candidate in the Sanford school of public policy, echoed King’s sentiments. “He’s a great role model for us all—the CEO of one of the most successful tech companies, the first openly gay Fortune 500 leader and a trustee of Duke,” she said in the press release. “I trust that he can teach us to take risks and be true to ourselves.” This is not the CEO’s first time speaking at Duke. In 2013, he addressed a group of Fuqua students as part of his class reunion, talking about the importance of rules and when to throw them out. It’s also not his first commencement address. Last year, he spoke at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, responding to the question of “how will you serve humanity?” MIT’s student newspaper The Tech reported that Cook told the graduates that it was not until he began at Apple that his work felt meaningful.

Deeksha Malhotra Student Speaker

By Jake Satisky Staff Reporter

Senior Deeksha Malhotra will be giving the student commencement address at graduation—to the surprise of many, but mostly herself. Her speech was chosen out of the many that were submitted by undergraduate and graduate students. She will get the chance to share her words of wisdom alongside Apple CEO Tim Cook, Fuqua ‘88, during graduation May 13 at Wallace Wade Stadium. “Most people that know me are probably very surprised I am the speaker because I am not very outspoken,” Malhotra said. “But that doesn’t mean I don’t have things to say.” She explained that the ideas in her speech had been brewing for a long time, and she finally wrote it over spring break this year with the help of professors, close friends and her parents. She hopes women, especially Asian-American women, will appreciate her presence on stage. “It’s nice for them to see someone that looks like them up there because I don’t think that’s happened in a while,” she said. However, Malhotra added that she wants everyone in the diverse audience to relate to her speech, so her words will focus on something that unites all Duke students—education. Instead of applauding how much she has learned, she will highlight the importance of not knowing everything. As a neuroscience major, she has come to understand and appreciate two key things—there are several counterarguments for every neuroscience argument she could make, and every scientist’s livelihood depends on the existence of unanswered questions. The value of her Duke education does not rest in having the answer to every one, she noted. “All [Dean of Admissions Christoph Guttentag] said [in our acceptance letters] is that we would be prepared, and so that we are,” Malhotra said. “That doesn’t come from knowing a million facts, but we know how to go about finding those facts.” She will also touch on some of her involvements at Duke

2018 Phi Beta Kappa Initiates

Phi Beta Kappa, the nation’s oldest and largest academic honor society, was founded on December 5, 1776 by five students at the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia. Since then, it has evolved to become the nation’s leading advocate for arts and sciences at the undergraduate level. Phi Beta Kappa elects over 15,000 new members a year from 286 prestigious chapters across the United States. The Society’s distinctive emblem, a gold key with the letters Phi Beta Kappa as the Greek initials of the motto of the society, “Love of learning is the guide of life,” is widely recognized as a symbol of academic achievement. The Duke Chapter, Beta of North Carolina, was formed in 1920 at Trinity College.

Freshman Year: 2014-2015 By Staff Reports The Chronicle

Freshman year saw Duke grow and evolve both physically and intellectually, as construction ramped up and controversy provoked thoughtful discussion. The number of cranes blotting the skyline increased as the University witnessed the end of some major projects and the beginning of others. Just as The Edge in Bostock Libraryopened in January, the entrance to the Bryan Center shut down and Wallace Wade Stadium began renovations, relocating graduation to the Durham Bulls’ Athletic Park. Duke also announced plans to renovate Marketplace for the first time since 1995, begin a historic expansion of Cameron Indoor Stadiumand close the Chapel in May 2015 for a year of renovations. Departing this year along with the Class of 2015 were administrators who have helped shape the students’ Duke experiences. Laurie Patton, dean of Trinity College of Arts and Sciences, announced her decision to become the 17th president of Middlebury College in Vermont. Duke Kunshan University also saw a significant change in leadership—with Nora Bynum, vice provost for DKU, announcing her departure to work at Chicago’s Field Museum in January and Mary Brown Bullock, executive vice chancellor of DKU since 2012, announcing her retirement in February. Duke Forward—the fundraising campaign with the goal of raising $3.25 billion by June 30, 2017—yielded promising results in 2014-15, with the University having received $340.1 million in cash gifts and $348.5 million in new commitments as of April 1. Students witnessed a growing trend—with Keizra Mecklai’s election as the new DSG president marking Duke’s fourth consecutive female student body president. Many have widely applauded Duke’s efforts in championing female leadership. Sophomore year also saw a number of racial and religiouslybased controversies— including Duke’s abrupt reversal of its decision to have the weekly Muslim call-to-prayerled from the Chapel bell tower, the tragic murder of three Muslim UNC students in Chapel Hill and the hanging of a noose near the Bryan Center. The Duke community came together following these incidents—with administrators leading speeches, faculty hosting forums and Duke Student Government and the Black Student Alliance collaborating to create the Social Justice Fellowship. Duke research has also been featured prominently in national news, including the pioneering work around the use of the polio virus to treat cancer patients—which gained national attention when it was featured on CBS’ “60 Minutes.” The University moved one step closer to putting the Anil Potti scandal behind it—settling a lawsuit involving the families of eight cancer patients who Potti treated based on falsified research. On the court, Duke men’s basketball overcame a season filled with ups and downs to capture its fifth national title with a thrilling 68-63 victory against Wisconsin.

Head coach Mike Krzyzewski also surpassed yet another milestone in January, becoming the first head coach in Division I men’s basketball history to reach 1,000 career wins with a comeback victory against St. John’s at Madison Square Garden. Freshmen Jahlil Okafor, Tyus Jones and Justise Winslow led the way—and have all since joined NBA teams. Although Duke football ended its 2014 campaign with a loss to Arizona State in the Sun Bowl in the final minutes, the program continued to make strides under the direction of head coach David Cutcliffe, posting consecutive winning seasons for the first time since 1989. Nine football players were signed by teams in the NFL, most notably offensive guard Laken Tomlinson, who was drafted by the Detroit Lions as the 28th overall pick, and wide receiver Jamison Crowder, who was selected 105th by the Washington Redskins.

Sophomore Year: 2015-2016 By Staff Reports The Chronicle

Bre Bradham | News Photography Editor OSC has stripped appeals boards of their power to resolve cases,

Sophomore year was characterized by the completion of major construction projects, student activism sparking campus-wide discussions and a bowl win for Duke football. Devil’s Krafthouse—the first vendor of the newlyrenovated West Union—opened after more than two and a half years of construction, and the entire West Union is expected to be fully operational in July. A renovated Marketplace, Rubenstein Library and Page Auditorium reopened at the beginning of the year. The University also announced that construction of a new East Campus dorm, replacing Aycock, Jarvis and East House, would begin in August. The Chapel was closed for renovations during the 2015-

16 academic year, but reopened May 11 after a $19.2 million project to restore the Chapel’s stained glass windows, replace the roof and improve the electrical system. A $25 million gift from David Rubenstein, Trinity ‘70 and chair of the Board of Trustees, will help fund the construction of a new $50-million, 71,000-square foot Arts Center at Duke. Construction continues on the new Student Health and Wellness Center. The main quadrangle was renamed Abele Quadrangle in recognition of Julian Abele, the black architect of Duke’s original campus. The renaming occurred after students presented administrators with demands in two community forums addressing racial issues on campus. The forums followed the defacement of a Black Lives Matter flyer and a death threat and homophobic slur made against a Duke student. Student protestors staged a week-long sit-in of the Allen Building to protest alleged discriminatory conditions in the Parking and Transportation Services department. Additional protestors pitched tents outside the building in support for about a month. Students have also protested the Women’s Center’s impending move to East Campus from its current location near the West Campus bus stop. In addition, non-regular rank, non-tenure track faculty filed a petition with the National Labor Relations Board and unionized this year. The union plans to begin negotiations for a collective bargaining agreement with administrators in the Fall. Several incoming freshman refused to read the summer reading book “Fun Home” by Alison Bechdel, saying that some of the graphic images conflicted with their religious beliefs. This year also marks one of the last of President Richard Brodhead’s tenure. Brodhead announced that he will retire at the end of the 2016-17 year after serving 13 years as president. The University has seen significant administrative change in other departments as well. Valerie Ashby—dean of the Trinity College of Arts and Sciences—and Dr. A. Eugene Washington—president and CEO of Duke University Health System—completed their first years in their positions. This year has also been characterized by continued academic engagement from the University and further efforts to enhance students’ potential. Paul Modrich—James B. Duke professor of biochemistry— was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry, making him the second Duke professor to win a Nobel Prize. Robert Lefkowitz, James B. Duke professor of medicine, won in 2012. Vice President Joe Biden met with Modrich and other Duke cancer researchers when he visited campus in February as part of his cancer moonshot initiative, which aims to accelerate the search towards a cure for cancer. Biden also held a roundtable discussion with scientists and physicians to discuss cancer research efforts. The University launched the Washington Duke Scholars program to provide first-generation students with enhanced financial aid packages and other resources. The incoming Class of 2020 will include the first Washington Duke Scholars. In its second year, Duke Kunshan University began planning for long-term development—including the expansion of the undergraduate program—and saw the completion of five campus buildings, with work underway on a sixth. The football team ended the season on a high note under leadership from the senior class, despite ups and downs during ACC play. On Halloween night after seemingly securing a See SOPHOMORE on Page 4

Junior Year: 2016-2017 By Staff Reports The Chronicle

Senior year featured participation in local and national elections, the announcement of a new University president and an ACC tournament championship for the men’s basketball team. With the excitement of a presidential election, many Duke students participated in civic activity for the first time. Both Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and Republican nominee Donald Trump visited nearby cities in North Carolina. The Chronicle anonymously polled a representative sample of 920 Duke undergraduates and asked them about their views on the elections. In the poll, Duke students showed a liberal tendency. Almost 76 percent of the 920 students planned on voting for Clinton, compared to 6.4 percent for Trump. When Trump emerged as the winner, many students were upset and in disbelief. Thereafter, both students and surrounding community members protested Trump’s inauguration. Trump’s executive orders banning immigration from Muslim-majority countries also incited protest. Additionally, several faculty members have expressed concern about Trump’s proposed budget, which cut funding from the National Institutes of Health and other research organizations. Students were also engaged in the gubernatorial race between Republican incumbent Pat McCrory and Democratic challenger Roy Cooper. McCrory is most famous for signing into law the highly controversial House Bill 2, which disallowed transgender people from using restrooms aligned with their

gender identity. After a close voter margin that led to a contentious legal battle, Cooper won the governorship. Thus far, he has been able to compromise with state Republican leadership on limiting HB2. Just as Trump and Cooper entered their respective offices, President Richard Brodhead served his last year as president of Duke. The Board of Trustees announced Vincent Price, the provost of the University of Pennsylvania, as the tenth president of Duke University. As part of his transition, Price has visited campus several times since the announcement. In addition to Brodhead, David Rubenstein, Trinity ‘70 and chair of the board of trustees, will also step down from his role at the end of his term July 1. In his last year, Rubenstein donated $20 million to endow the scholarship program for first-generation, low-income students formerly known as the Washington Duke Scholars Program. Now, it will be called David M. Rubenstein Scholars Program. The student body elected a female President of Duke Student Government for the sixth year in a row. Junior Riyanka Ganguly, formerly vice president for equity and outreach, spoke of the importance of activism and advocacy in her campaign. DSG elections this year have faced low voter turnout compared to previous years, but not necessarily compared to the student government elections at peer institutions. Senior year also saw the opening of West Union after more than two years of construction. Containing 13 new eateries, West Union presented a financial threat to the food trucks, some of which have left campus altogether. Still, Duke Dining was named best in the nation for college food. Additionally, the See JUNIOR on Page 4

Senior Year: 2017-2018 By Staff Reports The Chronicle

Charles York | Associate Photography Editor Price Palooza was a carnival on East Campus the night before Price’s inauguration.

Senior year has witnessed new aspects of campus life—from the welcoming of a new University president to the softball team playing its inaugural season—and a number of highprofile guests visiting campus. President Vincent Price took office in July as Duke’s 10th president and soon faced a controversial decision over the vandalism of the Robert E. Lee statue in the Chapel. He ordered the statue’s removal and launched a Commission on Memory and History in September to recommend a replacement for it. The Commission delivered its report in November, and he accepted the recommendation of leaving open the spot in the Chapel’s entrance. Price was formally inaugurated as Duke’s president in October

at a ceremony on Abele Quadrangle, followed by a reception in the Brodhead Center. The night before the inauguration, a carnival named PricePalooza took place on East Campus, which provided a ferris wheel, inflatables and food. In addition, Jack Bovender, Trinity ‘67 and Graduate School ‘69, became the new chair of the Board of Trustees. He took the helm from David Rubenstein, Trinity ‘70, who stepped away after serving as chair since 2013. In early September, a Duke LifeFlight helicopter crashed in eastern North Carolina. A memorial service took place September 20 in the Chapel for the four people who died in the crash. Steve Schewel, Trinity ‘73 and a professor at the Sanford School of Public Policy, became the mayor of Durham after winning the November election. He appointed Jillian Johnson, Trinity ‘03 and his former student, as his mayor pro tempore. In response to President Donald Trump’s plans to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, students established a new organization called Define American for students on DACA and their allies. Some of the students traveled to Washington, D.C., later in November to lobby members of Congress to support protections for individuals affected by the law. In late November, the men’s basketball team jumpstarted their season with a come-from-behind victory against Florida to win the PK80 Invitational’s Motion Bracket in Portland, Oregon. They eked out the victory by three points, beating the Gators 87-84. Duke would make it to the Elite Eight of March Madness before bowing out to Kansas in an overtime loss. Coach Mike Krzyzewski also notched his 1,000th win at Duke in a November win over Utah Valley. The team split the regular season rivalry with the Tar Heels before falling to them in the ACC tournament semifinals. Grayson Allen closed out his career in Cameron with a win over the rivals on senior night, but the walk-up line for the game got a bit out of hand. Krzyzewskiville also ran into some issues this year, including an indefinite shutdown being called due to the flu and the line monitors being sued in the Duke Student Government Judiciary. Over winter break, Duke’s football team routed Northern Illinois in the Quick Lane Bowl to take its second bowl win in three years. Duke, which finished the season 7-6, closed the season on a three-game winning streak—the first time since 1962. Duke gained a new varsity sport during senior year as well, with softball officially becoming the University’s 27th varsity sport. The Blue Devils finished the regular season ranked seventh in the ACC and gained their first All-ACC honoree as sophomore pitcher Raine Wilson was named to the conference’s first team. First-years Rachel Abboud and Peyton St. George were also named to the conference’s AllFreshman team. This year also saw the opening of the Rubenstein Arts Center, a new arts facility on campus. Rubenstein funded the creation of the new arts center with $25 million. The opening party in February drew a crowd of 3,000. The building is home to WXDU and the von der Heyden Studio Theater, a theater that has already hosted a production of Chicago. The American Dance Festival will also be in See SENIOR on Page 4

Vincent Price inaugurated as Duke’s 10th president By Staff Reports The Chronicle

As the sun descended behind Page Auditorium Thursday evening, Vincent Price ascended to the stage in Abele Quad to become the 10th President of Duke University. In an inauguration ceremony in front of the Duke Chapel, students, faculty, representatives from other institutions, trustees and two former presidents—Nannerl Keohane and Richard Brodhead—looked on as Price assumed his new role. In his address, Price highlighted the importance of regeneration and growth of the University in a new age while reaffirming Duke’s commitment to the highest standard of teaching. He emphasized interdisciplinary research as an essential component in tackling modern challenges and making new discoveries. Reflecting on the University’s role in North Carolina and abroad, he pledged to use Duke’s intellect not only to better the world as a whole but also improve the local community in which Duke resides. “We are called upon to answer the challenges of the day,” he said. “So let us think of today not so much as a beginning but as another renewal, both a renewed commitment to values that guided the choices of our predecessors at Duke, and a renewed charge to make bold choices of our own.” He touched on the history of Duke’s landscape to draw a comparison between the trees and the University itself. Just as the land that Duke sits on has undergone ecological changes through the years, Price explained, Duke itself has experienced similar periodic

renewals. “Throughout our history, each iteration of this institution has risen with purpose to meet the great challenges of its day, and has shaded and seeded the ground for grander things to come,” he said. He noted that Duke’s renewal originates in the classroom with passionate faculty and eager students. Hinting at the importance of transforming education in an age of technology, Price explained that all facets of life have been altered by the digital age—likewise, the education system must also adapt to suit those needs. Price called upon the University not to shy away from, but to instead embrace the new age of technology. “Our new century calls for a university audacious and visionary enough to fundamentally redefine teaching and learning in higher education,” he said. “I believe Duke can and will be that university.” In the past, research along strict disciplinary lines has led to a number of discoveries over the years, Price explained. However, he noted that modern research requires interdisciplinary communication to achieve its goals. He cited several interdisciplinary endeavors that Duke had already created and declared his commitment to continue embracing this new brand of research. “As our collective knowledge has grown, so too has the realization that the most pressing problems and far-reaching opportunities of our world do not fit into one discipline or profession,” Price said. “We must prevent our research from ossifying around practices that See PRICE on Page 4

‘Luckiest guy to coach ever’

The significance of Coach K’s 1,000th win at Duke By Hank Tucker Sports Editor

Saturday night was not the first time Grayson Allen sat in front of his locker with a white 1K t-shirt on, though he didn’t have as many media around him last time. Allen is the lone active Blue Devil that was on the team when Mike Krzyzewski picked up his 1,000th career win against St. John’s Jan. 26, 2015. Krzyzewski then made up five years worth of wins at Army in less than three more years at Duke, becoming the first men’s college coach ever to win 1,000 times at the same school with a 99-69 victory against Utah Valley. Allen just played three minutes against the Red Storm, before he emerged as a hidden weapon in the national championship that year, but made a bigger impact on this achievement with 18 points as a senior captain.  In total, Allen has been at Duke for 90 of Krzyzewski’s wins—with many more likely to come this season. “It’s pretty awesome to be able to be a part of two pretty historic moments for a coach,” Allen said. “This one, being in Cameron, I felt a lot more love for Coach. I think this one was the coolest just because of the fan support and being at home, being in Cameron with all the Crazies cheering him on.... I can’t believe I got to be a part of two of them.” After the game, Duke President Vincent Price and Vice President and Director of Athletics Kevin White presented Krzyzewski with a game ball. Price and former national player of the year Shane Battier then spoke briefly to honor Krzyzewski in an on-court

ceremony. Krzyzewski took the microphone for a few minutes to thank the crowd and started his remarks by reflecting on his first three years with the Blue Devils from 1980-83, when his teams went 38-47. At that rate of wins, it would have taken almost 79 full seasons to get to 1,000, and at that rate of losses, then-athletic director Tom Butters surely would have let him go well before that time was up. “My first three years, I could have never imagined winning 100 games,” Krzyzewski said. “I had a president in Terry Sanford and an athletic director in Tom Butters who believed

in me.” Butters, who died last spring, gave his coach another chance with a contract extension in 1984. Krzyzewski made his first Final Four two years later and he has been entrenched at Duke ever since, turning down several offers from NBA teams and watching Butters refuse his letter of resignation when he offered to step down in 1995 due to back surgery. That happened before every player on his current team was born, but that didn’t stop them from becoming a small piece of history themselves. “It was a special night, to even be part

of this team and to go out and play hard for that and to win this game for him,” freshman big man Marvin Bagley III said. “He’s a great coach. I enjoy getting to be around him every day and learning from him every day. I’m just happy to be here and I’m just looking forward to learning a lot from him.” Saturday’s game was just another early-season 99-69 win, the latest addition to the Blue Devils’ 134-game nonconference home winning streak. Krzyzewski coached it like any other win, and it showed on the bench, as he leapt off the bench to growl at the officials in the opening minutes when Allen and point guard Trevon Duval were both whistled for two quick fouls. He was doing the same job he has done for the last 38 years at Duke, and enjoying it. “I’m the luckiest guy to coach ever. I coached at my alma mater, coached the U.S. team for 11 years and I’ve coached what I think is the greatest basketball program in the country,” Krzyzewski said. “I think there’s more to come, I’m just not sure how many.” After he left the court, Krzyzewski shrugged off the accomplishment to start his postgame press conference, preferring to talk about his team’s play on the court. Win No. 1,001 with the Blue Devils may be as hard to get as any of the last 1,000 Tuesday against No. 2 Michigan State, and in his remarks to the crowd, he finished by trying to shift the focus from his own legacy to his current players. “What was is great, and what will might be great, but it won’t unless we consider ourselves fully invested into now,” Krzyzewski said. “Let’s embrace now with this group and see what the hell happens.”

Rubenstein Arts Center opens

3,000 people show up to ‘The Ruby’s’ opening party By Christy Kuesel Recess Culture Editor

Music audible from a block away, free coffee and the presence of a large fox were all sure signs that something special was happening at the Rubenstein Arts Center. Last Saturday, over 3,000 people attended the opening of the Rubenstein Arts Center, according to Duke Today. The event featured collaborations with duARTS, Duke Performances, Small Town Records, the campus radio station WXDU and the Dance Program Repertory. The Rubenstein Arts Center, which has been given the nickname “The Ruby,” officially opened Jan. 8, but the celebration allowed students to explore the Rubenstein and learn about all of the opportunities offered there. “It’s exciting for me to see people come, because I think you have to be in the building to see all the different types of art-making it can support,” Arts Communications Specialist Katy Clune said. The large number of attendees exceeded the expectations of many people involved in planning the event. “I am absolutely thrilled to see this incredible turnout for the grand opening — so many students, so many people from the community,” said Scott Lindroth, vice provost for the arts. The opening also featured an abundance of free merchandise, ranging from Joe Van Gogh coffee to posters for the first 50 attendees. The event was so well-attended that the posters ran out 10 minutes before the festivities officially started. While a large number of Duke students attended the opening, the event also attracted many members of the Durham community. Families and curious locals alike flocked to the Rubenstein, eager to see the result of the construction first approved in 2015. “It looks like a wonderful collection of spaces for the students, and I expect that it will foster a lot of creativity,” Durham resident Steve Pulling said. The Rubenstein was built to allow students to explore their artistic talents, but its opening was also a chance to showcase

what students have already accomplished. Student Dance Council brought together multiple student dance groups on campus for short performances throughout the afternoon. Small Town Records also featured student artists in a series of live sets. The Arts of the Moving Image program played student films throughout the event. Local artist Bill Thelen hosted a Biscuit Station where attendees could “order” biscuits with various toppings like jelly, pimento cheese and fried chicken. They then received a lithograph print of a biscuit with their selected toppings, custom-made in the back of Thelen’s makeshift shop. duARTS debuted a student art exhibition, entitled “What is Home?”, on the second floor of the Rubenstein. duARTS solicited pieces from the student community that centered on the idea of home and the different forms it can take. The exhibit is split into three sections that describe home: as a physical space, as a person or as an unwelcome environment. “You can explore the different way Duke students have interpreted what home means to them,” duARTS President Kelsey Graywill said. Good Coffee plays in The Ruby Lounge as part of Small Town Records’ student showcase. On display for a month, the “What is Home?” exhibit is the first gallery to be shown in the Rubenstein. Graywill said that the arts center allows for students, administrators and Durham community members to all see the gallery. “It’s kind of a unique showcase in that this is probably the most diverse group of people that will have ever come into a student showcase,” Graywill said. The Poetry Fox also made an appearance. A long line of students waited to receive a typewritten poem based on their chosen word from the fox. Duke Performances hosted a demo of the technologyinspired dance performance “MEETING,” which was shown in the von der Heyden Studio Theater last week. Alisdair See RUBENSTEIN on Page 22

The best and worst four years SENIOR COLUMN By Claire Ballentine Towerview Editor

Before I started my freshman year at Duke, everyone told me that college was going to be the best four years of my life. I really hope they were wrong. During my college career, I’ve experienced a strangely large amount of tragedies. The kind that make you wonder, what else can possibly go wrong? In the final days before graduation, as I walk around The Chronicle office where I spent countless hours as a reporter, department head and later editor-in-chief, I’m filled with memories.  I remember spontaneously bursting into tears three months after my mom’s death as Amrith, the editor at the time, tried to teach me how to layout a print paper.  I remember pacing the lounge, always filled with crumbs and pillows thrown everywhere, on the phone with my dad as my hometown in Tennessee was burning from forest fires and my best friends’ homes were being destroyed.  I remember a rare two-hour break from production as my best friends took me to Sky Zone to cheer me up on the one year anniversary of my mom’s death.  I remember asking my upper-masthead staff to keep an eye on me after I’d gotten into a car accident the previous day and later passed out from residual effects of the airbag hitting my face.  I remember confiding in staff members, some of my closest friends, about how hard it was for me to see my dad with a new girlfriend less than six months after my mom’s funeral.  But this column isn’t just going to be me airing my complaints about life. Luckily, I have enough great, supportive friends for that (hi, Maggie and Clara).  Because the truth is that while my four years at Duke have been the worst of my life, they’ve also been the best years of my life so far. It’s been a study in contradictions, the highest of highs and the lowest of lows.  Despite all the bad things that have happened to me while I’ve been here, Duke has given me more than I could have possibly imagined. It’s the place where I met my best friends, these crazy amazing people whose endless love and support

continues to astound me. It’s where I discovered my passion for journalism, for telling stories that would otherwise go untold. It’s where I found the one thing that solely belongs to me, that can’t be taken away— my voice.  I owe most of this to The Chronicle. Being editor-in-chief last year was truly the most rewarding experience of my life. People are amazed when I tell them that I really did love it, even with the long hours, constant criticism and struggles managing the staff. The Chronicle introduced me to some of the most talented journalists I know—Emma, Carleigh, Amrith, Neel, Adam, Sarah, Abby and so many more—and it’s how I got to know our general manager Chrissy, who has been a mother figure in my life during a time when I desperately needed one.  Duke also showed me that the world is full of options and broadened my horizons, previously limited by my upbringing in a rural Tennessee town with lots of love but little diversity or difference in opinions.  This school taught me that it’s okay to disagree with others,

to speak out in class when I had something to say and to push myself harder than I thought possible. I’m not saying I think Duke is perfect. Most of my time here has been spent reporting on everything Duke is doing wrong and working to hold the administration accountable for its actions.  I think the rate of sexual assault on campus is way too high and that the administration is not doing enough to address it. I think the housing model is broken, though I won’t pretend that I know the solution to it. And I think Duke often prioritizes its desire for more money and prestige over the needs of students.  But amid all of Duke’s flaws, we often forget what a privilege it is to be here. I don’t have the same shining opinion of this school as I did as a wide-eyed freshman, but I still recognize the lessons it taught me and how it helped me grow. A study that Nan Keohane conducted in 2002 found that women tend to leave Duke with less self-confidence than they began. But in my case, I feel more confident and prepared to take on the world than I ever did before.  The Chronicle gave me a purpose here and helped me grow into a better version of myself, someone resilient and unafraid. My friends showed me that I am worthy of love and respect. And finally, Duke taught me that it’s okay to be smart and ambitious and outspoken.  When I first found out that my mom had been diagnosed with cancer, I looked up the expected survival rates for stage four melanoma. One webpage I found said it could be up to five years. I thought maybe my mom would live long enough to see me graduate.  Like so many other things, I was wrong about this. She won’t be in the audience at commencement cheering me on or get to see me throw my cap in the air. But I know that she’s proud of the person I am now, because I’ve had to fight to become her.  When I got into Duke, my mom was more excited for me than I was for myself. And when I walk across the stage to get my diploma, I know she’ll be just as thrilled.  Claire Ballentine is a Trinity senior and Towerview editor. She was editor in chief of the Chronicle’s 112th volume. She would like to thank her amazing masthead, friends and mentors for a great four years.

“If we are ever going to solve some of the hardest problems facing the world today...then technology will help us do that,” said Cook, according to The Tech. “But technology alone isn’t the solution. And sometimes, it’s even part of the problem.” When he delivers Sunday’s address, he’ll be following in the steps of David Rubenstein, Trinity ‘70 and former chair of the Board of Trustees. Last year, Rubenstein gave graduates the “Da Vinci code of being a Duke graduate” in his address, encouraging them to be bold and make a difference. Cook will be sharing the stage with Malhotra, who has said she plans to speak on the value of education and the importance of unanswered questions. In addition to delivering her commencement speech, Malhotra said her goal is to get a selfie with Cook. Cook wrote that he is honored to be returning to address the Class of 2018. “They’re the next generation of leaders, and they have the power to change our world,” he wrote. “I’ll try to help them get started.”

SOPHOMORE FROM PAGE 10 come-from-behind victory against Miami, the Blue Devils could not stop the Hurricanes’ controversial eight-lateral punt return, resulting in a 30-27 loss. However, the team was able to overturn its three-year streak of bowl game losses and 54-year drought by defeating Indiana at the New Era Pinstripe Bowl with a 44-41 overtime win in Yankee Stadium. The basketball team returned from a National Championship win with newly-minted star Grayson Allen and a top-ranked recruiting class featuring Brandon Ingram. Despite high hopes, the Blue Devils lost captain Amile Jefferson for much of the season to a foot injury and fell out of the AP Top 25 poll for the first time since 2007. The team made a run in the NCAA tournament before being downed by Oregon in the Sweet 16.

FROM PAGE 11 new Student Health and Wellness Center opened in January. However, some students have had issues with accessibility. This year, faculty considered a new undergraduate curriculum, which would remove the foreign language requirement and not count Advanced Placement courses for credit. Many departments—especially in foreign languages— had issues with the new curriculum. In April, Valerie Ashby, dean of the Trinity College of Arts and Sciences, explained that the Arts and Sciences Council will take a pause on the curriculum to evaluate the next steps to revamp the Trinity curriculum. The University also faced its fair share of scandals, primarily involving lawsuits. A former lab analyst at Duke accused faculty and administrators of mishandling allegations of research misconduct, which could lead the University to pay close to $600 million in fines. The University brought forth a motion to dismiss the lawsuit, which a federal judge rejected. A men’s soccer player also filed a lawsuit against Duke and Stephen Bryan, associate dean of students and director of the Office of Student Conduct, for a violation of his due process rights. OSC and Duke’s student conduct process has also come under fire from legal experts, as well as former and current students. The football team took a step back in the fall, winning just four games and failing to reach a bowl game for the first time since 2011. But the up-and-down season did have a couple high points with wins at Notre Dame and at home against North Carolina. Victories against the Tar Heels were a common theme of the year, with the Blue Devils taking two out of three from their rivals in men’s basketball and also topping them in men’s lacrosse, field hockey and twice in women’s basketball. After finishing both 2015 and 2016 without any ACC championships, Duke finally broke out of its slump this spring, winning the conference in men’s and women’s golf and men’s basketball. The Blue Devils’ triumph in Brooklyn was the highlight of the year with four wins in four days, but the preseason No. 1 team could not keep its momentum going in the NCAA tournament, bowing out against South Carolina in the second round.

22 | FRIDAY, MAY 11, 2018

SENIOR FROM PAGE 12 residence at the Rubenstein over the summer, hosting workshops and performances. Several high profile public figures also visited campus. Reince Priebus, former White House chief of staff to Trump, discussed the 2016 election and his service in Trump’s White House when he spoke on campus in December. Tom Perez, chair of the Democratic National Convention, talked about the evolution of the party when he visited in April, and Sen. Bernie Sanders and Rev. William Barber II packed the Chapel for their re-scheduled April talk on a moral economy. Nikki Haley, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, visited campus in April to talk about Russian relations and the U.S. embassy in Israel. Condoleezza Rice, the former secretary of state, stopped by in May to discuss political risk. During alumni weekend in April, approximately 25 students took the stage as President Vincent Price stood at the podium. The students, affiliated under the People’s State of the University, presented a dozen demands for the University. The Office of Student Conduct originally sent notices to these students about possible disciplinary action but eventually chose to informally resolve the cases. The end of the year was also marked by racial incidents. A student was exposed on the Duke Memes for Gothicc Teens Facebook page for using a racial slur in a Snapchat. A student resident of the 300 Swift apartment complex had a racial epithet written across her door, and a pair of anti-Semitic posters were also found along the East Campus wall and sidewalk. In May, it was reported that two baristas at Joe Van Gogh had been fired due to a rap song that was playing when Larry Moneta, vice president for student affairs, entered the store to buy a muffin. Internationally, Duke Kunshan University

welcomed its first cohort of faculty for the undergraduate program in preparation for the inaugural undergraduate class arriving in the fall. Duke undergraduates elected junior Kristina Smith as their next Duke Student Government president to replace outgoing President Riyanka Ganguly, a senior, and chose senior Amy Kramer as their Young Trustee. The Class of 2018 lost a member of their class in December, when senior Alex McIlvaine died at age 22. McIlvaine was remembered in a memorial service at the Chapel in January.

PRICE FROM PAGE 13 were designed to confront another century’s challenges, and that limit our ability to confront the emerging problems of today.” Price then addressed Duke’s role in the community—both locally and internationally—and emphasized that the University’s work “does not stop at Duke’s gates.” He encouraged members of the University to seek out others different from themselves in order to understand—and ultimately better— the world. The inauguration ceremony also featured several other speakers, including Amy Gutmann, President of the University of Pennsylvania. As president of the university at which Price previously served as provost, she offered her strong endorsement of Price as Duke’s next president. “We’re absolutely thrilled for our good friend Vince, but it stings,” she said. “Truly, if ever an academic match were made in Heaven, this is the one.” She emphasized the linkage between Duke and the University of Pennsylvania, explaining that West Campus architect Julian Abele was in fact a Penn graduate. Price is just the latest example of the qualities and values shared by

Duke and Penn, Gutmann said. Noting that Price grew up with five brothers, she humorously added that his upbringing gave him “a true gift for staying cool under fire” and for “fostering affinity out of difference.” Durham Mayor Bill Bell also attended the ceremony and praised Price for several decisions during his first three months as Duke’s 10th president. To considerable applause in the audience, Bell lauded Price for his commitment to raise Duke’s minimum wage to $15 by July 2019 and for the removal of the Robert E. Lee statue. “Both of these actions, in my opinion, were the right actions at the right time,” he said. “They demonstrated his leadership and sensitivity to the moral and human conditions of justice and equity in our city.” Bell added that the relationship between the city and University had gradually improved throughout his terms on the Durham County Board of Commissioners and eventually as Durham mayor, which has spanned the tenure of four—and now a fifth—Duke presidents. Jack Bovender, chair of the Board of Trustees, also spoke during the event, noting that Duke has long been characterized by its “outrageous ambition.” “In investing Vincent Price with the power of this office, we are selecting him to be the vehicle of our collective and outrageous ambition,” he said. “We are putting our trust in him and urging him to be our guide through the many challenges and opportunities to come.” Bovender also reminded the audience that Duke’s enduring values remain steady even as a new president comes to the helm. “At William Preston Few’s inauguration as president in 1910, outgoing president John Kilgo suggested that while this institution’s administrators change, its purpose and principles remain the same,” he said.

RUBENSTEIN FROM PAGE 15 Macindoe, the creator of the robots used in the show, conducted a Q&A after the performance. The scale of the opening of the Rubenstein signaled to students that Duke is serious about its commitment to the arts. “I really like it,” first-year Aasha Henderson said. “I think it’s really awesome that they have this on campus and that Duke embraces the arts this way.” First-year Isabella Victoria Jimenez echoed the sentiment and said she enjoyed the variety of types of art on display at the opening. “They’re trying to show off everything at the same time,” Jimenez said. Sophomore Ashton Carr, who works at the Arts Annex, said that she likes how Duke is pulling together all of its different arts spaces on campus. The Nasher Museum of Art, the Arts Annex, Smith Warehouse and the Rubenstein are all located along Campus Drive. Together, they form an arts corridor stretching from East to West Campus. Lindroth agreed the opening of the Rubenstein signaled a new era for the arts at Duke. “I’m so proud that Duke has made this commitment,” Lindroth said. “I think it will send a whole new signal for what this institution is about.”
