Peer advisors are student academic leaders on campus who work closely with academic deans, college advisors and directors of academic engagement to create programming that helps expose you to all that Duke offers. Peer advisors can share how they formed meaningful mentoring relationships with faculty, help you navigate online registration, and help you learn to distinguish what is merely popular from what is individually meaningful to you. They are available via email, Facebook and for individual meetings, and they regularly sponsor events in East Campus dorms and neighborhoods.

I'm currently on the mechanical engineering track but considering switching to civil engineering. I like to joke that if I wasn't in Pratt, I would be an English or Psych major.
I am a prelaw student and Public Policy and International Comparative Studies double major, concentrating on international policy. I am also a Computer Science minor and interested in studying Italian and Human Rights.
I am undeclared but I am set on a public policy major and a human rights certificate with French as a possible minor. I’m really interested in the intersection between development and issues of rights on the African continent and how this is handled especially by global organizations such as the UN.
As of right now I am thinking of majoring in Neuroscience with a minor in Psychology.
Mathematics (major), Education (minor/secondary teacher certification), Earth and Ocean Sciences (minor), and Cryptography (It is so cool!)
I am planning to double major in mathematics and economics with a concentration in finance. I am also really interested in computer science, linguistics and learning new languages. I will be studying Portuguese at Duke.
I’ve changed my intended many times, so for now I plan on double majoring in chemistry and environmental science. My interests lie in the intersect between the environment and human health. I’m curious about how things we use everyday can potentially cause health problems. I’m also very interested in sustainability. A lot of the work I do outside of class is to try to create Duke a more sustainable campus. With a future of rising populations and global temperature, I think this fascinating topic is something to invest in.
As a rising sophomore I am currently undeclared, however I am interested in studying Political Science and Cultural Anthropology. I am considering Pre Law in international human rights and so am also interested in the Ethics Certificate and potentially a minor in French at Duke.
As of right now, I am interested in double majoring in Spanish and History while pursuing a Jewish Studies certificate. Hopefully one day, I will be able to educate others on genocides worldwide, working hard to prevent and completely eliminate this human rights atrocity. I also really just enjoy reading Spanish literature, especially poetry.
