Help build Duke's next class
Become an Alumni Admissions Interviewer
Every year, thousands of high school students apply to Duke, and alumni admissions interviewers play the critical role of serving as a Blue Devil ambassador. As an interviewer, you share your knowledge of your alma mater while allowing the student to share their story, putting a face to their application for the admissions team. There are over 250 cities and regions around the world where alumni interviewers support the voluntary interview process, and we are always looking for alumni to help us build the next class of Blue Devils. Please join us!
