All 2022 Duke for a Day dates have passed.

We welcome you for a regular campus visit!


Be a Duke for a Day!

If you’re looking for a smaller, low-key visit to campus, Duke for a Day is for you! This on-campus experience is personalized just for admitted students. Bring your questions, navigate your next steps and get to know JMU!

Your student schedule will include the following:

  • An info session about next steps for admitted students
  • Q&A with current JMU students
  • A guided activity around campus with a Student Ambassador
  • Lunch at one of our top-rated dining halls (registered students will receive one meal voucher)
  • Time to visit student support offices to get your questions answered

Students and family members will be separated for portions of the morning but will rejoin each other for afternoon activities. During this time, family members will take a traditional tour of campus.

Your day should end somewhere between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. and should definitely include a trip to the JMU Bookstore to stock up on all the purple and gold you can find!
