Welcome Letter – Summer

Welcome 2017 Summer Session students!

The 2017 Summer Sessions are fast approaching!  Registration began Monday, February 20.  If you are a Duke student, and have not registered, you can do so in DukeHub.  If you are a non-Duke student, you will be registered by Amy Kirkland and should receive an email soon.

For information about your summer session at the Duke Marine Lab, visit http://sites.nicholas.duke.edu/dumlenrollment/.  We will be adding information to that website regularly.

 

Research Independent Study

If you are interested in research independent study for a summer session, below is a list of faculty who are available during both sessions to advise students.  If you’re interested in doing research independent study, please email the instructors whose research match your interests.  When an instructor has agreed to work with you, forward that email to Amy.Kirkland@duke.edu and she will send you a permission number to register with.

Travel to Beaufort

About one month before the beginning of the spring semester we will invite you to join a Facebook group with your fellow students to coordinate carpooling, share taxis, post flights, etc.  At that time you can post your New Bern (EWN) flight arrival time and begin corresponding with other students arriving around the same time. To maximize shuttle sharing as much as possible, I suggest everyone try to land in New Bern around 1pm. If everyone does this, you can save money by sharing shuttles. Students who arrive on later flights end up having to take a shuttle by themselves. The New Bern airport is located off Highway (70 East) and is an easy stop for students traveling from Duke’s main campus.

 

Best Shuttle Option: Diamond Limousine: 252-240-1680
A cluster of students can share the cost of a limousine from Diamond Limousine. I realize this sounds fancy, but it’s actually the most economical option that takes credit cards! Several students can travel together and they charge approximately $75 – please add gratuity for the driver.

Other Shuttles Options:
Carteret Cab 252-247-4600 (cash only)
A1 Cab 252-504-3680 (cash only)
Shuttle Me: 252-637-7433  (the most expensive, but takes credit cards)
