Welcome to our new scholars who arrived recently or will arrive soon. Please help them and their family to settle down here if you could. We thank all the scholars who helped new scholars.

We got a notice from Duke Facility Management that they are going to test fire alarm for the entire building at Trent Hall on 1/11 & 1/12, 7am to 4:30 pm. The alarm will sound; but there is no need to evacuate the building. The testing should only last about 5-10 minutes both days.

The new semester starts this week. We hope you all will have a productive semester and be healthy and happy. Here is the academic calendar.
