Welcome, Future Blue Devil!

Congratulations, again, on your acceptance to Duke’s Class of 2021! We invite you and your family to join us in April for Blue Devil Days, our admitted student visitation program. Blue Devil Days allows you to attend classes, meet professors and administrators, and learn more about our academic and co-curricular programs. More importantly, you will meet some of the most talented and engaging college students in the world. Our students are Duke's best advocates; their enthusiasm alone will make you excited to join our community! 

If you were unable to attend one of our primary Blue Devil Days events (see below), we encourage you to join us for our One-Day Blue Devil Day program on Friday, April 28.

If you have questions about any of our events, please email bluedevildays@duke.edu for assistance. 

If you are an admitted student but are unable to attend Blue Devil Days, we still welcome your visit to Duke. Please contact us for assistance in planning your visit.
