Duke Encourage

Duke Encourage was a post-it note and Twitter campaign to help build morale and foster a sense of community on campus in the Spring of 2013. The notes were stuck on walls and billboards all around campus and featured inspirational messages. Students were encouraged to take notes with them and tweet about their notes using #DukeEncourage. The second phase of the campaign was to paint one of the construction walls on the Bryan Center Plaza with uplifting quotes, sayings, or notes to other community members. The campaign received a lot of positive feedback.

During finals week this year, Councilors braved the cold to paint one of the construction walls of the Bryan Center (pictured below). The campaign will kick off for 2014 during Spring term. Be sure to stop by the Plaza to add your own encouraging note!! More details to follow.

YBTT

A campaign that was initiated in the Spring of 2012 to bring into question some seemingly commonplace occurrences in Duke Undergraduate student life, both academic and extracurricular. The enigmatic acronym of YBTT was posted all around campus with no actual explanation as to what the letters meant, everywhere from the bus stop, to dorms, to all over campus. The meaning of the letters, “You’re Better Than That,” was released to the student body at the end of the week in a Chronicle column.

Retreats

Each Fall, the Honor Council goes on a retreat to bond with each other and, specifically, to welcome the new members to the Council. In 2012, the retreat was to the P-WILD ropes course in the Duke Forest, and in 2013, the Council ventured into the wilderness for an overnight camping trip in the Eno River State Park.

Decorating the Plaza for the Holidays

Councilors embraced the holiday spirit (and the 32 degree weather) to help decorate the Bryan Center Plaza. The Honor Council joined forces with members from Duke Jazz to decorate the stage and adjacent boardwalk area with festive lights. Happy Holidays from the Honor Council!
