Durham Life

Matt is officially finished with business school! Wooo hoo! He doesn’t graduate for two more weeks, but finishing eight terms at Fuqua is definitely something to celebrate!


The Dean hosted a reception at the Nasher Museum with all kinds of goodies:



The bbq salmon was so awesome!! And how cute are these little pimento cheese biscuits? I’m going to miss Durham’s pimento cheese obsession.

More than the pimento cheese, I’m going to miss the people.

Good thing some of these folks are heading to Dallas with us!!


Early to bed, early to bootcamp! Night.

    Make Bobby Dean’s lightened up pimento cheese (Greek yogurt is the secret ingredient)! You won’t have to miss it, because his version is SO delicious!

    Who catered the event at Nasher? We are getting married at the Life and Science Museum, and checking out Durham caterers. That food looks yummy!

      I’m not sure – sorry! I assumed they had an in-house caterer, or it might have been Duke’s catering.

    Hi Laura, I’m enjoying reading your blog! I’m thinking of studying to be a school psychologist. Do you recommend it? Also, what work experience did you do before you applied for the degree? Thanks for your advice!

      Hi! I would definitely recommend it! It’s a rewarding career with great hours and I find it very interesting. I would just make sure you shadow a school psychologist or meet with one to understand some of the tasks, such as testing and presenting results at IEP meetings. Before I applied, I had completed a summer internship at a special school and had a job working with a boy with special needs. Email me if you have more questions!
