Community, connection, and Duke spirit — that's what Family Weekend at Duke is all about. Every year we welcome over a thousand Duke families to campus to share in the Duke student experience, which includes everything from brunch in the Marketplace to a cappella concerts by award-winning student ensembles, as well as the popular Student for a Day talks and thrilling Duke athletic events. We pack as much of the Duke experience into one weekend as we can, so students and their families can share in the excitement together.
We had great success this past Family Weekend, and we, like you, are looking forward to next year! We have one addition to the schedule that will add even more excitement to the mix: a home Duke football game on Saturday. Imagine spending the day with your family, tailgating with delicious Southern barbecue in beautiful Durham Fall weather, and cheering on our (currently 8-1!) football team in a stadium full of Duke blue. We can't wait to share this with you.
