Alumni: How to Connect @ DEMAN

We have compiled a list that is a representative sample of some of the arts focused groups that align with DEMAN initiatives. Duke has over 600 organizations that can be searched at or via contacting the University Center Activities & Events (UCAE) office directly for more information. The largest programming and media body on campus is the Duke University Union

Some categories have a large number of groups on campus (for example dance, improv, and acapella) and thus are not fully represented below. Use the sites above for more details. Many of the groups noted span the Duke campus and are applicable beyond the undergraduate population.
