Classy Colleagues!
Once again, we are blown' up with a ton of awesome events! We've got a stellar Pub Crawl planned. The Campout Committee is having their first meeting, and is yearning for more volunteers. Duke OIT is boasting its new Online Training Tutorial site. There's a plethora of athletic events for you to enjoy, show your support for Duke, and possibly win a Full Exemption to Campout 2012, details below. If you're looking to class-it-up, the Duke Symphony Orchestra is having their Pops Concert in two weeks. Finally, GPSC is sponsoring a luncheon with academic administrators, free lunch provided, details in the "Look Ahead" section. I hope you enjoy!
