Orientation is approaching...
Clever classmates,

New students are arriving in Durham for the first time all this month. For all Duke newcomers: Hello and welcome to our illustrious institution! For the rest of us: Orientation season is a good time to get out, meet your new classmates and help out where you can for those needing advice or introductions! Our community is growing every minute, let's show them all the amazing reasons why they picked DUKE.

This week: a Book Drive (keeping it old school), classical music, free movies and the Nasher is wrapping up the Summer Days, Nasher Nights series.

Remember: "we're more than just co-workers, we're family!"

Basketball Campout 2013 Updates
Contact: exemptions2013@gmail.com
By now you've heard that Campout has changed to September 6-8, 2013! There are a few more changes to Campout this year.
- No glass allowed at Campout: this provides a safer environment for all campers, as well as those that are managing trash during the weekend.
- Campsite layout has changed: please see the new layout and plan accordingly.
- RVs must be under 24 feet bumper to bumper: since we only have one RV lot, this strict size limitation will ensure maximal RVs in the space. ONLY RVs UNDER 24 FEET BUMPER TO BUMPER WILL BE ADMITTED TO THE CAMPSITE.
- No generators in the RV lot: due to safety concerns associated with space constraints in the RV lot generators are not allowed.
- No amplified sound in tentville: Due to noise ordinance violations in preceding campouts no amplified sound is allowed in tentville. Additionally, this encourages campers to take advantage of the GPSC sponsored DJ in hopes of building and strengthening the Duke Graduate and Professional Community.

The 2013 exemptions policy has been updated. Click HERE for the exemptions form (don't forget to read the FAQs).

Remember, please direct all questions to the Basketball Committee, they are masterminding this amazing event!
