Why should I attend Family Weekend?

In addition to the opportunity to experience programs, discussions, concerts, performances and more from members throughout the Duke community, attending Family Weekend also provides a wonderful chance for you to spend quality time with your student. Not only does it strengthen your relationship, but it can also provide your son or daughter with the opportunity to bridge the gap between their lives both on and away from campus.
