Dukeland: The First-Year Experience Competition

In the Dukeland game, student teams earn points when members take action—especially actions known to promote student success.

Students get to know each other while they learn amazing things about Duke and the Pratt School of Engineering along the way.

Plus, there are prizes!

First-year students are divided into teams, based on their 360 Coach and E‐Team Peer Advisor. Watch for leaderboard updates in the weekly E-Team email.
