Why did you choose to go to Duke?
I chose to attend Duke because it has a great blend of strong academics, school spirit, and exciting and cohesive campus life. Thumbnail

What did you study at Duke? Outside of the classroom, what were you involved in on campus?
I majored in Biology, and minored in Global Health. Outside of the classroom, I was involved in Jewish Student Union, WISER, Brownstone SLG, neurobiology research, and of course, I spent a lot of time cheering on the Duke basketball team.

Why did Duke purchase the property?
Duke purchased the property to provide a quality living option for undergraduate students as plans for renovations and additions to Duke’s current housing facilities proceed.

 

Who will be housed there?
Houses currently assigned to Crowell will be reassigned to 300 Swift for the 2017-2018 AY, returning to the completely renovated Crowell building in Fall 2018.  These houses are Gates, Griffin, Magnolia Commons, Hart, Wayne Manor, and Cooper.

How can I get assigned to live at 300 Swift?
The process for selecting housing at 300 Swift will be the same as the selection process for all housing on campus.  Students currently living in Crowell can live at 300 Swift by exercising their Right of Return.
