The Senior Honors program gives students the opportunity to use their senior gift to acknowledge and thank someone at Duke who made a difference in their experience.

Learn why five students from the Class of 2017 chose to use their senior gift to honor those who made their time at Duke special in the videos below.

These contributions are immediately put to work for the campus community through the Duke Annual Fund, which is crucial to supporting priorities like innovative educational programs, financial aid, and world-class faculty. Seniors can also designate their gift to 16 areas of their choice, including all 10 schools, the Duke Chapel, the Sarah P. Duke Gardens, the Marine Lab, the Nasher Museum of Art, and the Duke Libraries.

Both senior donors and their honorees will be invited to a celebratory reception during spring semester.
