Blue Devil Days “Technology@Duke” sessions draw record attendance!

More than 1,000 high school students and their parents attended the “Technology@Duke” sessions during this year’s Blue Devil Days, a series of two-day programs for admitted students. Student Trainers: Eleanor Mehlenbacher, Patrick Royal and Jenny Su conducted a 15 minute presentation showcasing how technology is being used at Duke. Then, attendees visited tables being manned by staff from the Office of Information Technology, Duke Libraries, the Office of News & Communication, and several student organizations.  It was a great event and we look forward to seeing the new Duke students in the fall!
