Membership in this group is a privilege that requires great responsibility, as D&D ambassadors are frequently university guests’ only contacts with undergraduates during their visit. Members demonstrate their commitment by following the guidelines outlined below.
- Attendance at weekly meetings is mandatory
- Members must maintain a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.5 or higher
- Each member must guide at least two campus tours per semester
- Each member must volunteer a minimum of ten (10) hours in the fall and eight (8) hours in the spring
This is a tight-knit organization that allows members to become intimately involved with the University and its administration. Participation in D&D facilitates substantial personal and professional growth, as well as provides the opportunity to serve Duke University. We invite first- and second-year undergraduates to apply at the beginning of the spring semester.
The application process consists of a written application and Duke history test, after which we invite candidates to a first round interview and an open house to meet members of D&D. Candidates are then invited to a final round of interviews before we make final selections. We will be posting updates about recruitment on our website and Facebook page. Dates and processes are liable to change, so make sure to check these sites for new information.
The only Spring information session will be held in White Lecture Hall on Wednesday, January 30 at 6:30pm. This session will include more details about member responsibilities and the recruitment process.
Prospective members can find the study guide here as well as the application here. Note that these documents are from the 2017-2018 school year. They can offer prospective members an idea for what the application process is like, but they will be updated before the upcoming spring semester.
