Camp Duke is just the beginning. The shift from high school to college can be one of the biggest changes a young adult faces in his or her life and Camp Duke is designed to make sure that it goes as smoothly as possible.
This summer camp is more than an orientation session, it is where incoming freshman will meet new friends, discover the campus and create a sense of comfort all before the first day of classes. Campers will learn SWOSU traditions, connect with others and leave with an awareness to help them succeed in their first year of college.
The staff at Camp Duke will be there every step of the way to encourage and support you as you prepare yourself for your transition to SWOSU. The unique blend of activities planned for these few days will help you adjust not only academically, but also socially. The interactions you’ll have with faculty, staff, upper-class student leaders and fellow incoming freshman will provide you with a strong support system when you come back in August. Our goal for the inaugural session of Camp Duke is to inspire a strong sense of pride and comfort as a new freshman at SWOSU.
