There is so much more to the Blue Devil than just foam and horns. Come join your fellow Duke fans for an exclusive screening and release party of the short film Details of the Devil…The History of Duke’s Mascot to hear all the stories you never knew about our University’s iconic symbol. Beyond being named after a group of famous French soldiers from World War I, there have been 100 years of stories, shenanigans and students that have entertained fans around the world. This film will capture many of the endearing moments that have made the Blue Devil so special.

Prepared as part of Duke’s Centennial Celebration, the University Communications and Marketing Department has created this delightful deep dive into the origins of our mascot, as well as many of the "behind the mask" stories of the students that have portrayed the Blue Devil over the years.

After the screening, stay to enjoy a panel discussion with alumni who proudly wore the suit, and an opportunity to ask anything you’ve always wanted to know about what it’s like to be the mascot.
