From HS to College

As you will soon learn, college is very different from high school!

  • You will see changes in the amount of personal freedom you have;
  • Notice differences in how classes are structured and offered;
  • Realize that expectations of college professors are very different than those of high school teachers.
  • For a more in depth discussion on what to expect in college check out the following PDF: From High School to College.

Our goal at the Academic Resource Center is to help make your transition to Duke as smooth as possible!  We offer individual consultations to help you develop effective and efficient academic skills and strategies for all of your classes.  To meet with a learning specialist call (919) 684-5917 for an appointment.
