This was not something I had even considered when coming to Duke. We are lucky in that there are continuous months of sunny days, but also the occasional winter wonderland.
Some people indulge in a nice dinner after finals, others may party, I went on a hike at nearby Raven Rock State Park.
Being a Coastal Environmental Management student, I eagerly joined the Ocean Policy Working Group (OPWG) at the start of fall semester.
Student life can get hectic so being able to take a short drive to the beautiful Eno River State Park is a wonderful amenity to have.
I can confidently say the Community-Based Environmental Management course has helped me find a path here at the Nicholas School. There is so much good going on in Durham that I never would have known about if it wasn’t for this class.
Most CEM students visit Duke Marine Lab once or twice before moving to Beaufort. There is the option, however, to take summer classes at DUML tuition free before you even arrive at the Nicholas School.
