STS Webinar

New Student Programs will be hosting two more Advising and Registration webinars this week as part of the Summer Transition Series. Join us July 7 (Pratt), and/or July 8 (Prehealth) to connect with Academic Deans and advisors. If you missed today's Trinity webinar, the recording will be available soon! Registration is required for each webinar and can be accessed by clicking on the titles above.
Note: all webinars will be hosted via Zoom and recorded for later viewing. If you are unable to join us or don't want to forget your question, you can submit questions ahead of time and the host will ask on your behalf.

Peer Academic Advising Sessions

The Peer Academic Advising Sessions project is a collaboration between members of the Duke Student Government to provide peer academic support to incoming first-year (Class of 2025) and transfer students at Duke University.
The sessions will be structured as drop-in Zoom office hours with the opportunity to learn more about course registration and the various academic offerings at Duke. Current Duke students, who will come from a variety of academic departments and programs on campus, will host the events and discuss their experiences. Any incoming student is welcome to attend one or more of our sessions to ask questions, discuss Duke, or meet our current students. You will need to register for each event that you attend, so click the links below to sign up!
If you have any questions, comments, or feedback about the program, reach out to Devan Desai (devan.desai@duke.edu)

Wellness at Duke Module Now Available

This required training is the first step in providing information to help you make well-informed decisions regarding your own wellness practices, alcohol-related risks, and Duke social culture. Throughout this Wellness Module you will learn how to navigate many aspects of Duke social culture while keeping your personal wellness in mind – managing stress by prioritizing self-care and focusing on the present moment. For more information about this module, please visit the Living section of your Blue Book.
After completing part 1, you will be sent instructions for completing part 2. Both parts need to be completed by July 30, 2021.
If you have any questions, please email duwell@studentaffairs.duke.edu.

Coming Soon!

The Career Center team is really excited that you are joining the Duke community and look forward to meeting you in person this Fall! 
This Summer we launched Handshake, your new career readiness platform, to help you discover new career pathways and find amazing jobs and internships. You can also register for events & Career Fairs, sign up for career advising appointments, and explore employer and other student profiles. We know you have a lot going on in preparation for your arrival at Duke, so you don’t need to do anything! We will create an account for you in early August and send you information on how to access the system at that time. No need to create an account now!
Enjoy your Summer, be on the lookout in August for an email about activating your Handshake account, and see you soon!
