A time to reconnect and rediscover


Homecoming means cheering on the Blue Devils, catching up with old friends and reliving great memories. But it’s so much more – a chance to learn about Duke’s world-changing work, to reconnect with affinity groups and clubs, to explore Duke’s ever-changing campus and to feel the energy of thousands of alumni who return for fall’s biggest weekend. Come be Forever Duke all over again.

Join the Duke Alumni Association for a weekend of friends, football, and fun during Homecoming 2017! Registration opens in early August.
