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?

In fact, preparing and finding the confidence to ace your interview is as easy as 1, 2, 3, 4.
