WXDU News, Sports, and Information Tonight (10/4) 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: With the new school year underway, in an episode titled "Summer Melt and Z Degree," With Good Reason explores programs that work to tackle barriers to college education. First on the show, Host Sarah McConnell learns about an effort by one community college to prepare Latino high school students for higher education. She also talks to an expert who offers solutions to the problems that cause "summer melt"--when college-bound high school grads don't show up for college in the fall--and an innovated community college degree program that doesn't require students to rack up hefty textbook bills.

WXDU Sports is next at 7:30. Tune in as Martin Kang has the latest on Duke women’s soccer and their Sunday afternoon game against the number-nine-ranked Virginia Tech. He's also got a recap of yesterday's Duke football game against Boston College and a summary of last weekend’s victory against Georgia Tech. Finally, he'll share updates from the Duke women’s golf, field hockey and the men’s soccer teams.
