Faculty Outings


Duke, Durham and Beyond

During Orientation Week, Faculty Outings provides an opportunity for first-year students to learn about Durham through themed excursions (historic, tobacco warehouse district, canoeing, cycling, Frankie's Fun Park, etc.), and an opening welcome with university leaders.

Faculty Outings facilitate genuine engagement between faculty members and students in comfortable, enjoyable settings in and around Durham. Each outing gives sponsoring faculty an opportunity to be an ambassador for one of their favorite aspects of the community, from theatre performances to bike trails to farmer's markets, and much more.
