Follow the Lemurs

Ready to get to know Duke? No matter where you are in the college search process, we can help you decide if Duke might be the right place for you. Here’s a guide to navigating our extensive array of virtual and in-person options.

Just for fun, we’ve named the various levels of getting to know Duke after the residents of the Duke Lemur Center, a world leader in the study, care, and protection of lemurs—Earth’s most threatened group of mammals.

Choose one of the following:

I’m just starting my college search.

You’re at the Ring-tailed lemur level! We’re happy to introduce you to Duke and give you a taste of our connected, collaborative, and creative community.

We recommend attending a Live Virtual Information Session* and Live Virtual Tour. Interested in engineering? Join us for a Live Virtual Pratt School of Engineering Tour. If you can’t attend live, watch one of our recordings of live sessions.

*Duke también ofrece una sesión de información virtual en vivo en español.

I already know a bit about Duke but want to know more.

We’re glad to hear that Duke has piqued your interest. You’ve reached Coquerel’s Sifaka level. It’s time to find out more about how Duke might match your interests and goals.

If you haven’t already done so, attend a Live Virtual Information Session and Live Virtual Tour. If you can’t attend live, watch one of our recordings of live sessions.

Next, join us for one of our Live Virtual Duke Community Panels and other events with student ambassadors.

If you’re able to visit Duke in person and you’re a senior, register for a Student-Led Walking Tour. All students can take themselves on the Duke Mobile Tour, and consider a Pratt School of Engineering Tour. If you’d like to set your own pace for a virtual visit, you can take a Virtual Reality Tour, or tune in for a video tour of Duke’s East Campus or Duke’s West Campus.

I’m ready to apply but I have questions.

By now you’ve probably attended some of our virtual or in-person programs and know a lot about Duke, but you’d like to hear about the admissions process and financial aid from the experts. You’re ready for Red-ruffed Lemur level!

Tune in to one of our Live Virtual Guide to Applying sessions, led by Duke admissions officers, and to our Live Virtual Financial Support at Duke, led by Duke financial aid officers. If you can’t attend live, watch one of our recordings of live sessions. If you still have questions, join us for Q&A with Admissions Officers.

You can also sign up for a Live Webinar focused on admissions and financial aid topics.
