Editor's note: This is part of a series about the Class of 2023 based on a survey conducted by The Chronicle. You can learn more about the methodology and limitations of the survey here. Read all of our survey coverage here.


The survey asked the Class of 2023 respondents about their race and ethnicity, where they currently live and their family income. 

Getting into Duke

What are the Class of 2023's academic preferences? We asked them about which school they're in at Duke, the type of high school they came from, whether Duke was their first choice and if they applied Early Decision. 

Beliefs and Choices

From religion and politics to what type of cell phone they use, we asked the newest Blue Devils to tell us about their beliefs and choices. 

Plans at Duke

Last, how do they plan to spend their time at Duke? We asked the first-years to tell us about whether they want to tent this year, rush Greek Life or a Selective Living Group and what they plan to major in.
