Join us as we continue our Centennial year celebration with Duke’s Vice President and Vice Provost of Student Affairs Mary Pat McMahon, Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education Candis Watts Smith A.B.’06, A.M.’08, Ph.D.’11, and current Duke students from the Philadelphia area as they discuss how today’s undergraduates experience Duke and all it has to offer. We are delighted to welcome back to Philly as our moderator for the evening, Jim Rosenfield A.B.’81, P’16, former evening co-anchor at NBC10. 

As we honor our traditions and look forward to Duke’s second century, we’re excited to host this celebration in the Free Library on the Parkway, designed by Julian Abele who also designed the iconic buildings of Duke University.

Throughout its first 100 years, Duke has continually reinvented the student experience as it developed into a globally respected university.  As the student body's needs have continued to evolve, Duke continues to make bold changes to ensure those students thrive in a supportive environment. You’ll hear first-hand from current students sharing their experiences at Duke and describe how new programs—such as  Experiential Orientation, Spark, and DukeLIFE—have impacted their academic journeys and personal growth.
