Fraternities and Sororities: Still Hazing!

Jordan Sargent · 01/27/16 05:50PM

If you happened to think America’s soul-searching regarding the traditions of the Greek system had in any way curbed the drinking and hazing habits of the fine youngsters inhabiting our fraternities and sororities, well: It hasn’t.

"After careful consideration," Duke University has decided to rename a dorm named for a noted segregationist and white supremacist. Haha [Duke joke]. Seriously though, is white history being criminalized in today's post-racial America?

Adam Weinstein · 04/29/14 12:10PM

There is censorship going on at Duke University! Well, it's not that people are... banning speech, exactly. They're just discouraging it. What speech? Oh. Um, telling people "Man up," "That's so gay," and "Don't be a pussy." I know. What will these tyrannical leftist pussies do next?

Jay Hathaway · 03/21/14 03:27PM

The 14-seeded Mercer Bears mercilessly beat 3-seed Duke at basketball today, basically tearing up your bracket into tiny pieces and setting them on fire. All is forgiven, though, because A) They beat Duke and B) This GIF of a white guy dropping that Nae Nae now exists.

Duke Lacrosse Accuser Charged for Stabbing Boyfriend

Maureen O'Connor · 04/04/11 10:16AM

A strange, scary coda to the Duke lacrosse rape scandal: Crystal Mangum, the stripper who falsely accused three college lacrosse players of rape, has been charged for stabbing her boyfriend in the chest with "intent to kill." The boyfriend was treated at the Duke University Hospital, the same hospital that treated Crystal when she cried rape. Yesterday's arrest was Crystal's second since the Duke rape scandal; last year, she was sentenced to 88 days in jail for assaulting her previous boyfriend in front of his children, then setting his clothes on fire. This lady wreaks havoc on all who encounter her. [WRAL via Crimesider, image of Crystal in 2008 via AP]

Dana Vachon Is A Victim Of Circumstance, Publicists

Emily Gould · 08/06/07 01:10PM

In this month's issue of Duke University's alumni magazine, much-ballyhooed debut novelist Dana Vachon mulls the disjunction between the book he thought he'd written and the book that most everyone else (except one of us!) thought he wrote: "As much as I was tempted to write 5,000-word riffs on greed, it does me no use if you close the book, right? I know I've said it before, but I honestly believe it: Vox populi, vox dei." One wonders, though, exactly what "populi" Dana's referring to here. The 8,405 people who, according to Bookscan (which only tracks about 70% of retail outlets), have bought the book in the five months since its publication? Well, maybe they are the voice of God. Anyway, the article also contains a shocking revelation. You know that Times Night Out With Dana? Turns out, he was faking being a douchebag at his publisher Riverhead's behest!
