Graduate Professional Day Trip – A Day Downtown

As an extension to our Summer Transition Series webinar programs, we are excited to announce three immersive and in-person day trips!

Trips are designed:

  • For first-year incoming Graduate and Professional students to Duke University.
  • To foster a sense of belonging for graduate and professional students with Duke University in addition to unique academic programs.
