The Chronicle of Duke University- An exhibit commemorating 100 years of a student publication
Duke vs. Carolina
The athletic rivalry between Duke and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill spills over into many areas. Each Spring, the editors of the student newspapers at the two schools make a wager over the outcome of the basketball game that ends the regular season. If Carolina beats Duke, the masthead of The Chronicle is printed in a shade of blue that die-hard Dukies have come to detest; an agreed-upon text also appears in the upper right of the front page. In years past, it might have read "Dean Smith is God." If Duke wins the contest, The Daily Tar Heel prints its masthead in Duke Blue with perhaps the words "Duke: still the best" in the corner box.
Year in Review
The annual April Fool's Day "The Chomicle" issue has given writers the chance to satirize people and events around the University, but The Chronicle itself has been the subject of satire, as in this issue of the University of Virginia Rapier.
