While you've probably heard a lot about Duke, this is the time when you come see for yourselves. We believe you will come away informed, inspired and impressed and in fact have been working hard to make sure of it.  We know you all have a choice - and so we are grateful that you have chosen to give us the chance to show you the Duke that is so special to us.  

Below (and attached) is the schedule that gives you a sense of what will be going on. Should you have questions about this weekend’s events, please do not hesitate to contact us via email (mlw@studentaffairs.duke.edu) or phone 919.684.3814.
