Duke vs UNC... what's blue and blue and blue all over?
Crazy contemporaries,
It's about time we invaded enemy territory again and crossed over to Chapel Thrill for a Thirsty Thursday. Continue on with Blue Devil pride and join us as we pre-game the Duke/NC State football showdown... after our win over Virginia Tech last week we're pretty pumped!

Alternatively this week, if you feel like playing nice across the blue spectrum... join us at the Nasher Museum for a Duke/UNC mixer. UNC... Friend or Foe? Only you can decide.

Revelations about government subpoenas of reporters’ phone records and the massive leaks of classified information by M. Sgt. Manning and Edward Snowden have brought the tension between national security reporters and U.S. national security agencies to an all time high. Is it appropriate for the government to deter leaks through aggressive prosecution of those who disclose classified information to the press? Or do these individuals play a vital role in maintaining governmental accountability by enabling the press to inform the public about important matters of national security? These topics, as well as the controversial NSA surveillance programs revealed by Edward Snowden, will be explored in depth in an engaging dialogue.
