Duke Encourage was a post-it note and Twitter campaign to help build morale and foster a sense of community on campus in the Spring of 2013. The notes were stuck on walls and billboards all around campus and featured inspirational messages. Students were encouraged to take notes with them and tweet about their notes using #DukeEncourage. The second phase of the campaign was to paint one of the construction walls on the Bryan Center Plaza with uplifting quotes, sayings, or notes to other community members. The campaign received a lot of positive feedback.
During finals week this year, Councilors braved the cold to paint one of the construction walls of the Bryan Center (pictured below). The campaign will kick off for 2014 during Spring term. Be sure to stop by the Plaza to add your own encouraging note!! More details to follow.
