Welcoming New Students

Monday, August 28, 2017

Sunday night, August 27, the Graduate Program in Religion welcomed new and returning PhD students by hosting a dinner for students, faculty and their families.  It was held at The Boiler Room at American Tobacco Campus, and 86 people were in attendance.  Greetings were brought by Director of Graduate Studies Professor Stephen B. Chapman, Chair of Religious Studies David Morgan and Duke Divinity's Associate Dean for Faculty Development Randy Maddox. Professor Joel Marcus played guitar and sang his original lyrics to a folk tune. Pictured here is a creation by one of our future scholars (a.k.a. a child of one of our PhD students).
