“I’m not sure it could have gotten any better! I enjoyed learning what college is really about. Because of Camp Duke, I now have so many more friends to go to college with. I’m so excited! The counselors were amazing! Keep up the great energy & enthusiasm. The best part was meeting everyone, including a lot of the faculty. Camp Duke helped me learn ways to get through my freshman year.”

More than an Orientation Session

Camp Duke is where incoming freshman meet new friends, discover the campus and create a sense of comfort all before the first day of classes. You will learn SWOSU traditions, connect with others and leave with an awareness and a comfort to help them succeed in their first year of college.

  • 70 percent of campers said they want to come back to be camp counselors
  • 80 percent of campers said Camp helped them better prepare for college academically
  • 98 percent of campers said Camp helped them better prepare for college socially

Get ready for success at SWOSU

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 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 return for class in August.

Our goal for Camp Duke is to inspire a strong sense of pride and comfort for new freshman at SWOSU.

Go Dawgs!
