Rediscover a campus full of opportunity

On-Campus Events

Sometimes you just need to come back to Duke. But it’s more than the Gothic spires and old haunts that draw you back—it’s the energy of campus. From large-scale celebrations like Homecoming to the hundreds of performances, classes and events that take place every day, there is always an opportunity at Duke to feel inspired all over again.

Duke Homecoming 2021

Come back to campus November 5 – 7 for the biggest fall event of the year!

Some of our traditional events may look a bit different this year, but above all, we will have fun, memorable experiences together. We will continue to keep you informed as we plan what we hope will be a weekend full of:

  • celebrating the release of Duke Chronicle’s new book about the career of Coach K: “King of Cameron,”
  • watching a panel of Duke Alumni board members and recipients of the Changemaker award, hosted by new Sanford professor and New York Times columnist Frank Bruni,
  • cheering on the Blue Devils as they play against Pittsburgh,
  • attending Hoof ’n Horn’s production of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” or shows through Duke Performances,
  • and so much more!
