Tips to Succeed
- Get a good amount of sleep, use the exercise facilities (because they're awesome), eat well, take care of yourself, and balance work and fun. Time management is tough at times, but Duke students learn to make it work.
- Go to office hours! Many professors are willing to help, or even just to chat.
- Meet as many people from as many backgrounds as you can. All the resources are there, whether you are looking for an intellectual conversation or help with a research project.
- Study. A lot will be demanded of you academically, and there's simply no substitute for hard work.
