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 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.

Save-the-date for Homecoming 2019 on October 11-13.
