All students must take WRITING 101 their first year — randomly assigned to them for either the fall or spring semester. Each WRITING 101 section has a unique theme but they all offer a foundation in university-level writing.

If you are assigned to take WRITING 101 in the fall, you will have a message on DukeHub, under the Student Central area, under Announcements. You then are required to register for the course in the fall. Those who are not assigned will receive this notification when registering for the spring semester.
