About Us

Duke Singapore Students Association (SSA) is a chartered Duke organization that represents the Singaporean student community at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina. The Singaporean community at Duke comprises a diverse mix of undergraduates, graduate students and post-doctoral students. Current membership stands at about 60.

Our Vision and Mission
Duke SSA serves two main purposes at Duke – to provide a ‘home away from home’ for Singaporeans, and to promote Singaporean interests and culture at Duke University.

What We Do
Duke SSA organizes social and cultural events throughout the academic year, beginning with the Freshmen Welcome Picnic every Fall Semester, celebrations of Mid-Autumn and Chinese New Year, smaller-scale Dinner&Games events where there’s usually hotpot and karaoke and Senior Night amongst many other activities.

We also participate in large-scale events organized by Duke International Association at the campus level, such as FoodFest and Springternational where we celebrate Singaporean food and culture.
