STUDENT LIFE AT DUKE UNIVERSITY
Located in Durham, North Carolina, Duke University is a 4-year private research institution serving roughly 14,060 undergraduate and graduate students. In 2010, “U.S. News and World Report” ranked Duke 10th among a list of the best colleges in the nation. While Duke certainly has a lot to offer in the way of academics, the college experience includes so much more than just what happens in the classroom. In addition to academics and research, student life at Duke University includes Blue Devil athletics, student organizations, arts and global opportunities. Outlined below is a guide to student life at Duke University.
Founded in 1924, Duke University offers undergraduate and graduate programs through 10 different schools and colleges. Areas of study include arts and sciences, education, business, nursing, law, medicine, engineering, divinity, public policy and environmental studies. Degrees offered include bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degree programs.
Blue Devil athletics are a huge part of student life at Duke University. Whether you prefer to sit in the stands or rock the field, Duke offers a long list of men’s and women’s sports teams, such as swimming and diving, cross country, basketball, football, golf, rowing and volleyball (just to name a few). Not interested in playing sports but still want to entertain the crowd? How about trying out for cheerleading or the school band?
If breaking a sweat isn’t really your style, there are plenty of student organizations and leadership opportunities on campus as well. Currently, Duke offers roughly 400 student organizations, which are a great way to meet people with shared interests. Membership in some student groups may also be beneficial when it comes to resumes and scholarship applications. Some of the types of student organizations at Duke include academic, recreational, religious, service, professional, Greek, cultural, arts and media.
An important part of the college experience is living on campus. The accommodations might not be as ideal as living off campus (in some instances), but there is something to be said for convenience and proximity. Plus, living on campus is one of the best ways to meet new people and make lifelong friends. At Duke, residence halls are organized based on common interests and at least 20 housing options are offered throughout the campus. Apartment complexes are offered on the Central campus, which house roughly 1,000 students in efficiency units and 1-3 bedroom apartments.
This guide to student life at Duke University is just a brief glimpse into everything that this North Carolina university has to offer. More information about student life at Duke University can be located at the institution’s official website.

HOW TO BUILD STRONG RELATIONSHIPS WITH YOUR CHILDREN
When observing families, notice how the adults react to their children. Better yet, watch how the parents speak with their children. Do they speak to them? Do they listen to their children, process what’s been said and then speak or react? In determining how (1) ..., observation is the key. Go into your memory bank and recall not only how adults treated you, but allow yourself to experience the feelings that followed.
It is when we can put ourselves in the shoes of another person that we can communicate best. Sensitivity opens up awareness. Tone of voice, facial expressions and words we choose all reflect that sensitivity — or insensitivity. Nobody wants (2)... or treated as if they are in the way. Oftentimes adults don’t slow down and take the time to think before they put their reactions into gear. This can lead to saying and doing things that were not intentional.
Suffice it to say that in building strong relationships, parents need to begin when the children are young to chat with them. Ask what are they doing, why they chose a certain colour to wear, why they put plaids and polka dot clothing combinations on that day, and how did they feel when... First of all, by doing this at a young age, your child becomes comfortable talking with you. Secondly, they are learning how (3) ..., as well as how to think through their choices.
Everyone makes mistakes. When you make one, the last thing you want is for someone to point it out to you and scrutinize your actions. Instead, you want the other person to suggest that they understand it was a mistake and exhibit confidence that they are aware you will do better the next time. This is exactly the same with children. More than anything else, they want (4) ... and they hurt more than anything a parent can say or do when they know they let their parents down. Don’t add to the injury. Praise their attempts and encourage another try.
Team work is another aspect of building a relationship. Certainly as a family it takes the contribution of all members to get things accomplished. In order for each (5)..., they need to have a role. Even the youngest member can do something like put napkins on the table or carry the plastic mustard container from the refrigerator to the table. Rotate duties so no one person gets stuck with a job that nobody wants to do. Equal opportunity is the name of the game. Create a song that the family can sing as they all work together to tidy the house, prepare for a trip, prepare dinner or clean-up afterward. By making it fun, you’ll get much more interest and energy put into it.
Recognize each family member for their contributions to your family team. Some will do more than others, depending upon age, circumstances and ability, but all should receive equal recognition and praise. This eliminates competition (6)... . It also encourages them to support one another.
This strong relationship will carry over into adulthood. Your children will become friends and they will be there for one another to lend a hand, host family gatherings and attend each other’s family activities. Your team will all be winners.
