The message below is being sent to all Duke undergraduate students.

Thursday, October 28, 2021
Dear students, 
We know QuadEx has been a hot topic of conversation since we announced our plans for the future of residential living and learning at the end of September. Many of you have reached out to us to share your thoughts—but we want to know more. 

Today, we are launching the QuadEx Question of the Week (QoW). QoW is a weekly one-question survey of the entire undergraduate student body about, you guessed it, QuadEx. 

On Thursday of each week, we will release a new Qualtrics survey that will ask one question related to QuadEx. We will use the data collected to inform our decisions about QuadEx as we bring the new residential system to life.  

You can find the QuadEx Question of the Week on the QuadEx website, on Duke Student Affairs and Office of Undergraduate Ed social accounts, and with QR codes around campus.  

So, what’s in it for you (besides sharing your very valuable opinions!)? 

PRIZES! Each week we will randomly select a respondent to win a prize. And these aren’t your grandmother’s prizes. Fill out the QoW, and enter for a chance to win: 
  • A swinging bench on the BC plaza reserved just for you
  • Skip to the front of the line at Midnight Breakfast
  • Behind-the-scenes tour of Cameron Indoor
  • Catered lunch on the Grainger Hall Rooftop Garden 
  • ... And more! 

Students who complete all five QoW for the fall semester will be entered to win a special grand prize—your choice of either:

  • exclusive premier parking in the Student Wellness Lot for two weeks in January, OR 
  • priority class registration for Fall 2022 (register a day ahead of your entire class!). 
The QuadEx Question of the Week is just one way we’ll be reaching out to students this year as we bring QuadEx to life. Continued student stakeholder engagement will be critical to our efforts, and we encourage you to fill out our QuadEx feedback form. We are reviewing these responses weekly. More opportunities for direct engagement will continue this semester as well. 

Thank you for participating, and we can’t wait to hear from you! 

Go Duke,

Mary Pat McMahon
Vice Provost of Student Affairs
