Cameron Crazies! This is moment you've been waiting for! This is why you camped out for that ticket card! The most hailed rivalry in all of sports is less than 10 days away! Since attendance is so high for this game, it has its own set of policies. We spent a lot of time putting together this year's UNC Line Policy 2013, so please read it carefully. The Basketball Head Ushers do NOT monitor the line until 6:00 PM on Tuesday, February 12, 2013, until then the line is "self-monitoring." Please remember NO BAGS, NO PURSES, and NO UMBRELLAS are allowed in Cameron. Walk-up line: last year we got the entire walk-up line into the game except for the last 30 people, so you can still attend the game even if you don't have a ticket card! Get excited for the game AND for the BONFIRE after the win!

6. DiaVolo Dance Theater - Fearful Symmetries & Trajectoire
When: Fri, Feb 8th & Sat, Feb 9th: 8PM
Location: Reynolds Industries Theater
Contact: Duke University Box Office: tickets@duke.edu | 919.684.4444
Cost: DUKE STUDENTS: $10 | Other: $32, $38
"To say Diavolo is exciting is redundant," raves the LA Times of this gravity-defying dance company heading to Duke Performances for a pair of spectacular shows. "They make precisely coordinated feats look improvisational, even reckless."
Founded in Los Angeles by Jacques Heim in 1992, Diavolo made international waves by mounting athletic, finely calibrated romps on enormous kinetic sets. In Fearful Symmetries, commissioned by the LA Philharmonic with music by John Adams, dancers swarm through — and perilously swan-dive off — a giant modular cube, all while manipulating it into fantastic new shapes. In Trajectoire, they risk life and limb atop a rocking galleon, vaulting and tumbling as if tossed by rough seas.

7. China National Symphony Orchestra
When: Thurs, Feb 7th: 8PM
Location: Page Auditorium
Contact: Duke University Box Office: tickets@duke.edu | 919.684.4444
Cost: DUKE STUDENTS: $10 | Other: $26, $42, $52
At a time when large-scale classical music is unprecedentedly popular in China, Duke Performances proudly presents the China National Symphony Orchestra, an ascendant 80-piece ensemble internationally hailed as “a mature group with a vital sound” (The Times [UK]).
Chinese classical cornerstones make up the first half: the world-famous Butterfly Lovers’ Violin Concerto is for Western-style orchestra with Chinese violin techniques, courtesy of brilliant young soloist Chuanyun Li. Xia Guan’s Earth Requiem is a solemn yet uplifting elegy for an earthquake-ravaged Sichuan Province.

8. Durham: A Self-Portrait Documentary Screening

Location: Fuqua School of Business - Dansby Classroom

We will also have industry specific panels that will touch on entrepreneurial best practices in the healthcare, technology and energy industries. In addition, the conference is a great opportunity to network with venture capitalists, entrepreneurs, university faculty and students committed to entrepreneurship and venture capital. We hope to see you there!When: Wednesday, February 6, 2011 from 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM (Registration will be from 9:00 - 9:30 AM)Please note lunch will be provided.
