    Duke Community Panel

    Saturday, October 29, 2022 at 10:00 AM until 11:15 AMEastern Daylight Time

    Moderated by our admissions staff, Duke Community Panels are 75-minutes long and bring together current students, alumni, parents, faculty, and staff from across the Duke community to share their personal experiences, stories, and connections to Duke. This is your opportunity to learn more about why Duke is such an extraordinary place. 
    Please read more about our wonderful panelists below.

    - Dr. Alexander Glass,
    a faculty member in the Nicholas School of the Environment. His students regularly participate in fieldtrips both locally in NC, and across the United States. He is also a passionate advocate of study abroad experiences, teaching Duke’s summer program (biogeography) in Australia, as well as Denmark (climate change and early civilization). His teaching focuses on new knowledge-making, discovery, and curiosity as the most important pursuits and goals of a university-education.

    Eliza Moore, a current sophomore, is majoring in Public Policy with a double minor in African and African American studies as well as History of Inequality. She serves on the executive board for Black Student Alliance (BSA) as well as Black Women's Union (BWU). As BSA Assistant Programming Director, she helps plan events and is part of the BWU Service and Outreach committee. She assists a graduate student with research, observing conversations between couples who are dealing with cancer to study their communication. She has also participated in tenting – the Duke basketball tradition to obtain tickets to the Duke vs UNC game, intramural sports such as volleyball, and in community service through various organizations. One such organization is CHESSanity in which she works with elementary school children, teaching them how to play chess and connect academically with older students.

    - Will Denton
    , a current Pratt sophomore, is majoring in electrical and computer engineering along with computer science. Outside of school Will co-leads the Duke Robotics Club and is a TA for Engineering 101, the intro to engineering class for Pratt freshman. He is also a part of Duke's combat robotics program, and when we occasionally get snow, he races in the giant slalom for Duke’s Ski and Board team. In his free time, he runs through the Duke forest or explores Durham with his friends. The beginning of the second semester is his favorite time at Duke as the whole student body is hype for basketball season! Tenting for the basketball games last year with his friends was one of his favorite Duke experiences so far.
