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.
"I absolutely loved taking his Chemistry Outreach class and learning from him ever since. He has taught me to be creative, hands-on, and excited to make a difference in my community. Best professor I've had at Duke!"
"Jess devotes herself to her students. She is a wonderful role model, showing Panhellenic women the importance of hard work, compassion and optimism."
"Working with him has radically transformed my way of reading, engaging, thinking about, and writing about literature. Few undergraduates—especially those studying humanities—are fortunate enough to enjoy such an extensive, intense, productive, and collegial academic experience, and I am honored to be one of these lucky few thanks to Professor Rosa!"
"I would not have graduated without him."—Lyndsey
"This extraordinary woman is without a doubt one of the most inspiring individuals I had the chance to meet during my four years at Duke."—Zach
"Dr. Gold has been a mentor to me ever since our first meeting. Over the past two and a half years, she has been forgiving of my failures as well as celebratory of my successes. Without Dr. Gold at Duke, my experience would have been vastly different, and I truly believe, much less full."
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.
