On March 29-30, 2019, admitted students from 30 states and three countries came to Durham, NC to learn more about our Master of Environmental Management (MEM) and Master of Forestry (MF) professional graduate degree programs, as well as life at the Nicholas School. Some came early on Thursday for the Diversity Mixer with our student organizations. Attendees enjoyed:
- Meeting their future classmates, from lively lunch conversations to a campfire in Duke Forest
- Engaging with Nicholas School faculty, students, staff and alumni through panels covering various topics, student organization tabling, and more
- Touring our LEED platinum certified building and exploring the Duke campus, with guided tours to locations including the Sarah P. Duke Gardens, Cameron Indoor Stadium, and the Brodhead Center
- Hearing how our Career and Professional Development Center works with students to prepare them for their future careers (pop-up career coaching was also offered both days)
- Learning about options to finance their Nicholas education
- Meeting faculty chairs and students to learn about each concentration's curriculum
- Exploring Duke Forest on a Saturday morning guided tour of the Shepherd Nature Trail
