This is just another example of why we are proud to be Duke students and represent our University. Mr. Singh writes a compelling article about the cultural differences between his native India and college life in the United States. On the other hand, Ms. Banks does little more than insult Duke, although UNC has much to offer its students. This is yet another example of how the Duke-UNC rivalry goes beyond basketball—with mixed results.
