To strengthen the social bonds between international and domestic members within the Nicholas School of the Environment, members of the community are invited to participate in a fun basketball game between first year and second year MEM/MFs!
Faculty and staff who are interested will be joining the first year team. All Nicholas School dual degree, PhDs and returning students will be joining the second year team. There will be two 20-minute halves and 3-minute overtime if needed. Clock stops in the final 5 minutes of the game following NCAA basketball rule.
First year team wears white and second year team wears blue. This is a mixed-gender game which means team members on the court are not of a single sex.
A player who makes a team great is more valuable than a great player! You can participate in the game by becoming a player, coach or referee! Sign up here. Remember, second place is just the first place loser!
Important info about access to Card Gym: Card Gym is located on West Campus adjacent to the Wilson Recreation Center immediately to the right once inside. To gain access to the Wilson Center, you need to be a member of Wilson Center or come in as a guest by another member of the group. A member can bring in up to 2 guests at a time. The students are all members so as long as you all remember to bring your Duke ID’s and have flex money on you for potential faculty or staff that are not members ($5/person - the front desk only takes flex money ). Everyone will need to have some form of a photo ID to gain access. For the non-members, a driver’s license will do just fine. All guests will be required to sign a waiver at the front desk as well.
Come and cheer for your peers! Stand up and Scream! The best yea we're yelling for the No.1 Team!
