Making the Most of Your Time at Duke, Faculty Panel

Faculty members from various disciplines will discuss the ways in which they prefer to get to know Duke students. This discussion is particularly relevant to first-year and sophomore students, but all are welcome. The faculty panelists will cover topics such as: How do you ask for a letter of recommendation? Do faculty ever say no to these requests? What should students expect when visiting faculty during office hours? What advice would faculty give students to make the most of their time at Duke? The panel will be chaired by Professor John Board in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Please arrive prepared to ask questions or email them in advance to
