Orientation 2022

Orientation 2022 will merge Pre-Orientation programs and O-Week into one immersive EXperience. New students will navigate the week through a unique program, schedule, and with 60-100 students per track. In each program, students will build community, make connections with upper-class students, explore Duke and Durham, and adjust to life at Duke. Each program’s content is centered around a theme, similar to our former pre-orientation programs. Tracks include former pre-orientation programs and new track themes! You can learn more about the programs HERE! Each program is led by two student Program Directors and staffed by a team of Orientation Leaders-OLs (previously known as FACs and Pre-O staffers) and campus partners.
