A campus visit is the perfect way to get a sense for our culture, surroundings, and the wealth of opportunities available at the Nicholas School. We host an annual Prospective Student Open House and we are happy to arrange individual visits on other days throughout the year. We hope to see you soon!
This year, our on-campus (Durham, NC) Prospective Student Open House will be held on Friday, October 12, 2018. We encourage prospective students to attend. It's a great way to learn more about the Nicholas School and Duke University communities. Students will also have an opportunity to interact with Nicholas School faculty, staff, and students.
We are happy to arrange individual visits for those who cannot attend our Open House. You’ll have an opportunity to see our facilities, meet with admissions staff, visit classes, and meet faculty and current students (if school is in session).
When to Visit
Visits are offered Monday through Friday by appointment. We recommend visiting when school is in session (consult the Academic Calendar) so you can have the chance to attend classes and meet faculty and students. However, admissions officers are available to meet with prospective students year-round if you can’t make it during the school year.
How to Schedule Your Visit
We ask that individual visits be scheduled at least two weeks in advance. Please submit a request by contacting us at email@example.com. For opportunities to meet admissions staff on the road this fall, click here to view the travel/recruitment schedule.
