Department Of interviews Young Trustee finalists

Arguably the most important election of 2016 is finally here. It’s Young Trustee election season at Duke, or what we like to call “my whole Facebook feed is full of the three same pictures.” In light of the gravity of the election, Department Of decided to research each of the candidates, only to realize three identical campaign websites and Chronicle profiles later, we had no idea who these frat bros were. Sure, Jamal is black, Max is Jewish, and Wills is Catholic, but there had to be more.

Department Of, by the Grace of King Trustee David Rubenstein, Protector of this Realm and of Its other Realms and Territories, Servant of the People, Defender of the Blue Devils, went ahead and interviewed them. Asking the tough questions, getting the real answers on the most important issues facing students, like the Drake and Meek Mill feud. We encourage you to check out the three interviews, and then go out and vote on February 9 and 10. Lord knows no one else will.

Max Schreiber is a senior Electrical Engineering student who grew up a mile and a half away from Pauly D.

Wills Rooney is a senior at Duke majoring in self-directed program called “Market, Society, and Personalism,” which basically means he was too Aristotelian for the Politics, Philosophy, and Economics program.

Jamal Edwards is a senior double majoring in Global Health and Journalism. He spends far too much time at UNC than is socially acceptable.

Jamal Edwards is a senior double majoring in Global Health and Journalism. He spends far too much time at UNC than is socially acceptable. His favorite Instagram filter is Mayfair, but he likes X-Pro II when he wants to look intense. Department Of sat down with Jamal in the BSA office in the Bryan Center to discuss diversity at Duke and YikYak, and to explicitly not discuss his fraternity pledging process.

Just a friendly reminder: this is a real interview. Like, these are real quotes from the real Jamal Edwards. Continue reading “Department Of interviews YT finalist Jamal Edwards”

Wills Rooney is a senior at Duke majoring in self-directed program called “Market, Society, and Personalism,” which basically means he was too Aristotelian for the Politics, Philosophy, and Economics program. He runs cross-country and track, writes for The Chronicle, and was formerly a student director of the Catholic Center. Department Of met Wills in an abandoned Divinity School classroom to talk theology, mozzarella sticks, and why the hell he has an “s” at the end of his name.

Just a friendly reminder: this is a real interview. Like, these are real quotes from the real Wills Rooney. Continue reading “Department Of interviews YT finalist Wills Rooney”

Max Schreiber is a senior Electrical Engineering student who grew up a mile and a half away from Pauly D.  He is the president of Interfraternity Council and loves basketball. In fact, he loves basketball so much, he coaches three basketball teams outside of Duke, including one of apparently “inner-city kids where 1 in 10 kids have a father” [sic]. His celebrity crush is Jennifer Aniston. Department Of sat down with him in person at a random conference table in UCAE in order to talk about the three big things threatening Duke as we know it: DKU, a residential college system, and black mold on Central Campus.

Just a friendly reminder: this is a real interview. Like, these are real quotes from the real Max Schreiber. Continue reading “Department Of interviews YT finalist Max Schreiber”
