Week 3: How about a few more students fresh from Fall Break, courtesy of our student-run Creative Communications Committee? This week, we meet a would-be super hero, a perpetual dieter, and a student who can’t gain weight if he tried. Sigh…life can be so unfair.

 

 

 

 

Week 4: Want to meet a few more students, courtesy of our student-run Creative Communications Committee? This week, we’re feeling fruity as we meet a cherry-flavored fanatic and a student who has trouble pronouncing “banana”.

Week 6: We’re thankful that it’s time to meet a few more students, courtesy of our student-run Creative Communications Committee! This week, we meet a nationally ranked tennis player, a dedicated Real Madrid fan, and the self-professed father of the cutest baby ever. Doesn’t every parent think that?

Week 8: It's time to meet more students, courtesy of our student-run Creative Communications Committee! This week, we meet a YouTube enthusiast, a random high-fiver, and student with a special connection to cats. Meow!

 

 

 

 

Week 9: The spring semester is underway, so let's meet a few more students, courtesy of our student-run Creative Communications Committee. This week, we sing along in the shower, practice our CEO signatures, and dine with an insect-eater. Yum?

 

 

 

 

Week 10: Is it Spring Break yet? Let’s pass the time by meeting a few more students, courtesy of our student-run Creative Communications Committee. This week, we build mental grit with a Tough Mudder, crash a wedding, and enjoy a Sangria in Madrid. 

 

 

 

 

Week 11: Spring Break is just around the corner - let’s celebrate by meeting a few more students, courtesy of our student-run Creative Communications Committee. This week, we swim with sharks, study the art of shaving, and meet a killer student. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Week 12: We’re back from Spring Break, refreshed and ready to complete this semester! To celebrate, let’s meet a few more students, courtesy of our student-run Creative Communications Committee. This week, we’re detained overnight in Tokyo, skip the second grade, and meet our doppelganger (who is so good-looking!). 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Week 13: 5-time Champions. That has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it? Let’s celebrate by meeting a few more students, courtesy of our student-run Creative Communications Committee? This week, we must enjoy dessert, work on our novel, and consider if there’s life out there. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Week 14: Classes have ended and exams are on the horizon. Take a break from studying and meet a few more students, courtesy of our student-run Creative Communications Committee. This week, we plan a road trip, put Argentina on our bucket list, and learn a lot from video games.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Week 15: Graduation is next week, but we have more students to meet, courtesy of our student-run Creative Communications Committee. This week, we meet a pigeon-imitator, a tattoo-designer, and a competitive eating champion (no reversal of fortunes here). 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Week 16: How did the year go by so quickly? Don’t worry; we still have more students to meet, courtesy of our student-run Creative Communications Committee. This week, we sing along with the radio without knowing the words, escape the police on a bicycle made for 3, and catch up on our zzz’s now that classes are over. More to come!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Week 17: The official start of summer is less than 2 weeks away, so let’s meet a few more students, courtesy of our student-run Creative Communications Committee. This week, we meet a state-level fencer (En garde!), a Duke basketball convert (championships have a way of doing that to you) and a stickler for fruit (yay, summer!). More to come!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Week 18: The heat is on in Durham with summer in full swing, so let’s cool down with a few more students, courtesy of our student-run Creative Communications Committee. This week, we go fly-fishing, laugh our day away, and get the strange feeling we’ve been here before. Just one more to come!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Week 19: It’s the end of the line for our 2014-2015 get-to-know-us series! Let’s meet our last group of students, courtesy of our student-run Creative Communications Committee. This week, we imitate an elephant (but not aggressively so), watch a horror movie (and sleep with the lights on), and want to thank the academy (and MEM!) in case our Hollywood career ever takes off. See you next year!
