Welcome to the Duke Merit Scholar Finalist Week for the Class of 2027! We are so excited to meet you and introduce you to Duke University. These webpages will serve as a guide to showcase all aspects of life at Duke. You may have noticed the cute little guy, sitting up there on the quad- that's our office's unofficial mascot, the OUSF MOUSF (Ooo-Seff Moose-eff). MOUSF will pop up occasionally on our webpages and in our newsletters to highlight some of the lighter side of things here at Duke. Keep an eye out for him!
