WXDU's Mission
WXDU, as a member of the Duke University Union, exists to inform, educate, and entertain both the students of Duke University and the surrounding community of Durham through quality progressive alternative radio programming. WXDU seeks to give its staff the freedom to pursue their personal aesthetic within the framework of a cohesive format. WXDU aims to provide the listener with an alternative viewpoint untainted by commercial interests. WXDU resolves to maintain good relations with the music industry without compromising its integrity and nationally recognized commitment to quality programming. WXDU resolves to remain a laboratory where all members are free to make and learn from their mistakes.

WXDU News, Sports, and Information Tonight (10/18) 6:00-8:00

Tune in at 6:00 tonight for this week's installment of the Endless Frontier, WXDU's original science talk show, for the latest in science news and research developments.

Then at 6:30, Helen Yu learns about the Triangle's refugee community--and the personal identity, citizenship and cultural issues its members face--on Discovering Durham. On this month's show, Helen talks to Lenny, a 23-year-old refugee from the Democratic Republic of Congo, who, after living in a refugee camp in Rwanda for 17 years, relocated to the U.S. in 2014. Lenny is an engineering student at Durham Technical Community College who hopes to one day put the skills he learns to good use in his home country. Helen is also joined by Kelly, an immigration counselor with the Church World Service RDU Immigration and Refugee Program in Durham, to discuss the program's mission, services and impact.

Finally at 7:30 tonight, Martin Kang has WXDU Sports. This week, Martin covers last Friday's Duke women's soccer victory over UNC and men's soccer win against NC State, plus updates on Duke football, volleyball and field hockey action. He'll wrap things up with "Sports, the Great Uniter?," a story from the Center for Documentary Studies podcast series Scene on Radio produced by John Biewen.
