This is Duke
Arts & Humanities Open House — Saturday, November 12
All of Duke serves as a resource for its artists and scholars of the humanities. From opportunities in music and dance to chances to study English, history and philosophy, find out about these opportunities and more at the Arts & Humanities Open House.
Duke is Visiting Your Hometown
Throughout the fall, representatives from the Undergraduate Admissions Office will host Discover Duke presentations in cities throughout the United States. In these programs, our officers will provide a comprehensive overview of the academic, campus life, and financial aid opportunities available to all Blue Devils. We invite you to register in advance for these events, and we hope to see you soon!
Duke in Rio
Whether it's in the classroom or in the pool, in the library or on the court, Duke students and alumni bring a champion's spirit to all that they do. Find out more about the former and current Blue Devils, like basketball star Kyrie Irving and fencer extraordinaire Ibtihaj Muhammad, taking part in the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.
Four years at Duke can take you anywhere: perhaps to a Rhodes Scholarship, like Jay Ruckelshaus and Laura Roberts, to the intersection of documentary film and political action, like Ernie Britt, or to creating a running tech company like Ivonna Dumanyan. Explore stories and scholarship from the class of 2016. What might yours be?
What's Your Forever?
For our graduates, it's Forever Duke. Hear alumni discuss the things that drive them and the ways Duke helped them discover and develop their abiding passions.
The Duke Philosophy: Access and Flexibility.
We guide our students to find their own academic paths by helping them to reason, analyze and understand in unprecedented ways. The undergraduate experience at Duke is characterized by a spirit of academic energy, exploration and challenge.
We are a research university with resources to connect undergraduate education to the processes of inquiry and discovery. Duke students explore ideas by collaborating directly with our exceptional faculty in a program of study that focuses on interdisciplinary exploration.
A student's education doesn't end at the classroom door. We provide an incredible variety of opportunities for students to enhance and supplement in-class learning with hands-on experiences, service in the community—both locally and globally—and development of leadership skills.

"Duke is a place of amazing abundance."
This is President Brodhead.
Here's what he has to say.
To turn Duke opportunities into your personal strengths, you have to want them, reach out to them, and actively incorporate them into your life. It’s your choice, but it matters what you do.
A great university is a scene of constant combustion, where energies of intelligence and creativity are released in a bonfire no marshal could hope to contain.
Like the Olympics, Duke is a community dedicated to the highest realization of human powers.
