You Have Your Letter......Now What?
Congratulations on your admissions to the Nicholas School of the Environment at Duke University.
We are very excited that you are considering making Duke University your home for the next two years. The Admitted Students web pages were designed to make it easy to access important information, plan a visit to campus, and to get ready to enroll in the fall. Summer on-boarding will be led by the Student Services team, and our office provides a range of services and supports students at every level. The team strives to provide exceptional services that enhance quality educational opportunities, promote career readiness, inspire environmental leadership and encourage lifelong learning for every student. We are pleased that you are considering joining the Nicholas School and Duke University communities.
Congratulations on your admission! We received more applications this year than expected. The high level of interest was gratifying, but it meant we had to make many tough admissions decisions. If you accept our offer of admisssion—as I hope you will—you will find yourself in a cohort of smart, accomplished, diverse, and motivated individuals who will change the world.
Duke graduates have been leaders in addressing natural resource and environmental challenges for more than 75 years. Their success demonstrates that an investment in training at Duke pays off. As a first-generation college graduate, I know the value of higher education, but I also know its cost can be daunting. We will do all we can to make our program affordable to you.
I hope you will join us at our Admitted Student Weekend (March 31-April 1). Duke is located in the burgeoning cosmopolitan Research Triangle region of North Carolina and is easily accessible by air through Raleigh-Durham International Airport.
Science-based natural resource management and training began in the U.S. in the foothills of North Carolina’s Smoky Mountains more than a century ago. Join us and continue the distinguished tradition of Duke environmental leadership.
