When I first received my health insurance card, I was so confused about the numbers and the terms on the back of the card. How much am I going to pay if I am seeing a doctor?
Welcome to Duke!
Whether you are a first year student away from home for the first time, or returning as an upperclassman and ready to explore your dining options on West, you might want some tips about how to eat well on campus. Donât worry, weâve got you covered.
Think of healthy eating as having three components, timing, balance and mindfulness.
1. Timing. Remember to eat regularly throughout the day; you canât expect to get through your busy days if you donât have energy (and food is energy!). A common mistake many students make is skipping meals or going too many hours without eating. If you have the First Year Board plan donât forget to eat a small meal or snack to keep you going between meals.

As many of you may be aware, we sent every member of this year’s incoming first-year class two on-line trainings--Alcohol Edu and Haven. Haven is higher education’s first compliance-based program for primary sexual assault prevention. We carefully monitored student participation this summer because it is important to us that each member of this class understand definitions of sexual misconduct, the effects of alcohol on relationships and the ethics of relationships.
First of all, I would like to say congrats to the class of 2018 for choosing to come to Duke! Soon you will realize that it was the best decision you have made in your entire life; personally, I could not be happier here.
Most people do not like talking about their problems, whether they are academic, financial or emotional â especially at a place like Duke. The stigma attached to mental health issues do not mix well with the Duke community. Things become a lot more daunting when there are unrelenting expectations to be the perfect student with an immaculate academic record; this quickly tears away at oneâs self-esteem and life.
Hello Class of 2018! My name is Gabrielle Sawyer and I am a rising junior studying Public Policy and Markets and Management. I have just returned home to Washington, D.C. after spending a very eventful semester in SoCal with Duke in Los Angeles. In addition to taking courses with USC and Duke professors, I interned at Overbrook Entertainment on the Sony Pictures Studio lot.
Hi Class of 2018! Congratulations on your recent graduations â now all thatâs standing between you and Duke is a few months of summer!
My parents told me that when I was a young toddler, I wanted to be a doctor, dancer, writer, flight attendant, singer, and actor all at once. I was constantly envisioning myself as a new person each time I came up with a new profession; I was always living in the future. I could never pinpoint what I wanted to do. Duke changed that.
Hello! First, I would like to give you a warm welcome into the Duke community and congratulate you for making the best decision of your life by choosing to call Duke your home for the next few years.
Hi! My nameâs Brooke Beason and Iâm a rising sophomore from Alabama majoring in political science. Iâm super excited about being a part of the True Blue team this year. True Blue is something unique to Duke that supports freshmen through the transition to college life.
