Duke’s Nathaniel Mackey weaves together poetry and music in his work. Recently, he performed his poetry with musical accompaniment. See the full performance and read more on Duke Today.

Congratulations to the winners of Duke’s Presidential Awards. The recipients were honored for exceptional service to Duke at a luncheon hosted by President Brodhead.

Last weekend, Duke welcomed back more than 4,000 Blue Devils for Reunions Weekend. Alumni were treated to receptions and activities, like a photo booth at the Forever Duke Reunion party.

Finally, it’s the last week of classes for students, and the last week of these 60-second updates until the fall. Have a great summer, everyone!
