AAC Events

The Academic Advising Center hosts a number of events throughout the academic year that connect you to information, resources and other members of the Duke community.

At a DukeJourneys dinner, students share in conversation with an alumnus who has combined significant global and/or civic engagement with a successful and unique career path.

The Duke Alumni Association co-sponsors many DukeJourneys dinners as part of its Forever Duke series.
