Attend A Class!
Plan to get to the classroom early and let the professor know that you are a prospective student interested in observing the class.
• While Duke professors welcome prospective students to visit many of their classes, there will be occasional class sessions (i.e. quiz/test days) when it would be inappropriate (or not terribly exciting) to visit.
• Please plan to stay for the entire class period.
• Classes may be held on the quad to take advantage of nice weather. If the class is not in its original location, you may want to look outside.
