Who We Are: 

To succeed in any diverse environment, Duke students must be comfortable and competent in engaging people of different backgrounds, beliefs and perspectives. A variety of centers and programs within Campus Life departments in Student Affairs use dialogue and community engagement to help students cultivate cultural consciousness and understanding, and to develop their own identity.

We spoke to Gerald Tan, a Trinity freshman from Singapore, about his transition to Duke and the United States. The Economics student has a great sense of humor and loves all things food.

1. Where have you lived or traveled?
I have only lived in Singapore. But my Mum was born in Malaysia, so I would often head there to visit my relatives.  It’s a 3-hour drive away.

2. Why did you come to Duke?
Many reasons: the liberal arts education, the community of friends, the weather, the over-aggressive squirrels. But most important of all - to explore. My mum left her hometown, alone, when she was barely 16, to seek a new life in a foreign country. Coming to Duke is, in some way, my lesser emulation of that immense courage and entrepreneurship she had.
