Hello there! I'm glad to hear you're considering Duke as one of your top choices. I can share with you some information about the research opportunities based on what I know about my child's experience there.

Duke is well-known for its strong research opportunities for undergraduates. The university encourages students to engage in research across various disciplines early on in their college careers. To facilitate this, Duke offers the Undergraduate Research Support office (URS), which helps connect students with available research projects and resources.

There are opportunities like the Program II, which allows students to create their own interdisciplinary major and work on their own projects. Additionally, you can look into the undergraduate research programs within specific departments, such as the Pratt Undergraduate Research Fellows in Engineering or Duke Biology Undergraduate Research Fellowship.

Another great resource is the Duke Undergraduate Research Society (DURS), which hosts events and workshops to support undergraduate researchers. Finally, don't hesitate to reach out directly to professors whose work interests you, as many are more than happy to include motivated undergraduates in their research projects.

I hope this helps! Good luck with your college applications and endeavors!
