It's time to unpack your sweaters, fall is coming to Duke.
Colorful Classmates,
I haven't turned on my AC in a week now which means you know that the season is edging its way into "fall." The days are getting shorter and the semester is in full swing. Soak up this perfect camping weather while it lasts!

Fun and educational events are happening everywhere on campus this week. There are lectures, an art exhibit about Street Art in Egypt, tons of free movies and of course... free moon cakes.

Three GPSC events this week as well: check out the luncheon series, the GA meeting (with happy hour after) and of course... FOOTBALL Tailgate!

A message from your GPSC Executive Board...

Hello all!
We wanted to forward the results of the safety survey we sent out 3 weeks ago.

  • 2,516 respondents
  • 48% responded "no" to the question "Do you feel safe on Duke's campus?" (52% responded "yes")
  • 90% responded "yes" to the question "Do you believe something needs to be done by the University to improve security?" (10% responded "no")
  • 1,442 wrote comments

The GPSC executive board read the comments and presented the data and suggestions to the chief of Duke Police, John Dailey, as well as two of his highest-ranking officers during a meeting. Please read this letter, written by Chief Dailey, to address many student concerns. There are officers continuing to study the student comments, and Duke Police has promised regular updates in the GPSC News to continue to address graduate and professional student concerns regarding campus safety.

Stay safe!
