Emails with the Duke Divinity School

September 22, 2014 − 2:34 p.m.

Dear Salad T. Ong,

Greetings from Duke Divinity School!

Thank you for your interest, to learn more about application requirements and deadlines, please visit our Application Information page. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. We are always happy to hear from you! 

Peace and grace,

Paige N.E. Anderson, M.T.S.

God be with you, and also with you.

Is there a chance for me to enroll in Spring, 2015 semester? Also, does Duke Divinity School have a men's basketball team? If so, I would like to try out.

In god's great grace ("GGG"),

Greetings Salad,

Thank you for your response and interest in Duke Divinity!  We unfortunately do not offer Spring admissions. All of our degree programs start in the Fall. We do have application deadlines starting as soon as November for the Master of Divinity.  As for the basketball team, Duke Divinity does not have a basketball team because it is situated right on Duke University’s campus and is a part of the Duke community so as a student you are able to enjoy Duke Blue Devils basketball.

If you have any other questions please do not hesitate to ask!

OK, thank you.

Just one more question: have a group of students in the Divinity school ever challenged the Duke men's basketball team to a game?

If they did, please send me a link where I could view the box score.

Trusting in Jesus,

Greetings Salad,

Thank you for your questions but I do not think that has ever happened. 

If you have any more questions about the application process please do not hesitate to ask!

Until I see a box score I will have to assume that it HAS happened and that the Duke men's team was so embarrassed by the defeat that they destroyed all evidence of the game ever taking place.

On a related note, do you think the Duke's men's team has ever cheated during a game? Point shaving, using ineligible players, "loaded shorts"?

I'd love to hear your thoughts on this potentially ground-breaking sports story, and the possibility of a Duke Divinity team taking over for the Duke men's team when NCAA sanctions are inevitably handed down.

In Jesus,

September 24, 2014 - 12:50 p.m.

Greetings Salad,

Unfortunately our office is not an authority on anything that happens with Duke Basketball.  I encourage you to contact the Athletic Department directly if you wish to have these questions answered.

You’re hiding something, that has been made abundantly clear.

I'm just going to show up to Duke’s first practice with evidence and wearing my Duke Divinity Basketball t-shirt.

Thank you and go Divines! (new mascot for Duke Divinity School basketball team).

Through Him,
Salad T. Ong
