Community Service

Graduates, Welcome to the Alumni Network, from Duke First*

Congratulations -- you did it! On behalf of Duke First, a community of first-generation and low-income students-turned alums, we are celebrating this moment with you. After getting into Duke, choosing to make it your home, and navigating through your program here, you’re now becoming an alum. This is a huge feat, and we know that as someone who identifies as FGLI, you may have also faced other challenges – work, financial demands, the stress of finding a good internship/job, or feeling like an outsider on campus and back at home.
