small group networking

As a first-year student, do you find connecting with individuals or networking difficult? Do you find yourself at networking events not knowing what to do? Who to talk to? What to say?

This past February, the Career Center partnered with the Duke Alumni Association to host the “Class of ‘22 Alumni Career-versations” networking event, which was a great opportunity for first-year students to connect with alums from various industries. Although several students were nervous, by the end of the event they realized they were just having conversations with the alums and sharing stories. Simple right?


In celebration of LDOC, the Brodhead Center dining locations are offering the following specials for lunch and dinner:

The other famous cities are Tripoli in the north and Tyre in the south. The name Lebanon means “white” in Phoenician, referring to the snowy mountains.
