Memories of the First Year at Duke

Checking in with three first-year students after a year of growth and learning

Here are the original stories when the three arrived on campus. Each took different paths to Duke: Clare got her first taste of Duke when, living nearby on a farm, she participated in a cosmology program here and set her sights on studying the universe; Siddu came here with an interest in studying equity and equality globally; and Isabella arrived as a biomedical engineering undergraduate thinking about a future in space medicine.
