Duke's Jewish Baccalaureate Story
"But Jewish students today shouldn't take for granted a wonderful event in their collegiate lives for which my classmates and I had to fight." -Rob Satloff, T'83

The first Jewish Baccalaureate at Duke started as a protest/walk-out by a handful of Duke seniors in 1983. Read the whole story here.
