A warm welcome to the Duke family

Send-Off Parties

In cities around the world, the next class of Duke students is preparing to start their journey at Duke. What better way to celebrate their rite of passage than with a send-off from their local Duke family? Taking place in late summer, Send-Off Parties are the perfect opportunity for incoming students to meet classmates and alumni from their area and get an insider's take on Duke. It's also a great way for alumni interviewers to congratulate their admitted interviewees. 

**Send-off parties listed on this page are confirmed. Registration portals will open about 30 days before the event. Please bookmark this page so you can easily come back to check.

Incoming students (and their parents) whose addresses are in the regional area of a party's location will receive email invitations with a link to register when registration opens up.
