A warm welcome to the Duke family

Send-Off Parties

The Duke Class of 2023 is set.

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 during the 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.
