During the final weekend of March, the Division of Student Affairs hosted their spring semester Duke Parents Advisory Council (DPAC) meeting. Friday evening approximately 25 families and their students joined us at the Washington-Duke Inn for an opening reception, highlighted by welcoming remarks by the Pratt School of Engineering's, Dean Bellamkonda. He shared his appreciation for the volunteer role our parents and families play in providing feedback on critical student issues.
Narrator: You are listening to the Duke University Parent and Family Programs podcast.
Maggie: Hello, this is Maggie Peterson from the Office of Parent and Family Programs at Duke University. We are here today with Tatum Riley. Thank you for being here to chat with us today, Tatum! Could you please start by telling us your hometown, major, and class year at Duke?
Tatum: Hi! I’m from Phoenix, Arizona. Currently I’m decided that I am probably going to major in public policy and psychology. I’m going to do an interdepartmental major, and I am a freshman at Duke—class of 2022.
Maggie: Great, thanks! So today I’d love to chat about your reflections on your first year at Duke. Let’s start by talking about move-in day. So when you moved into your dorm in August, what emotions did you experience?
Chile is a South American country occupying a long, narrow strip of land between the Andes to the east and the Pacific Ocean to the west. It borders Peru to the north, Bolivia to the northeast, Argentina to the east, and the Drake Passage in the far south. Southern Chile is rich in forests and grazing lands, and features a string of volcanoes and lakes.
Whether vying for a job, an internship, a scholarship, or even admission to graduate or professional school, interviewing is likely to be part of the process, and for many, the most difficult part. After all, how can you prepare to answer questions when you don’t know what they are? Any interview will require a degree of improvisation, but that doesn’t mean you can’t prepare. In fact, preparing and finding the confidence to ace your interview is as easy as 1, 2, 3, 4.
Hey Duke Students!
As the spring semester comes to an end, you may find yourself with a fantastic internship opportunity for the summer but in need of academic credit for the experience. This isn’t uncommon as many employers require students to receive academic credit for their internships as a way to have the university endorse the experience.
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?
