IMPORTANT, PLEASE NOTE that we will be moving towards only one newsletter every two weeks given the low amount of events in the summer. This took effect May 19th and will continue until the week of Aug 11th. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me!

Also, Campout has a FB page!

Cameron CRAZIES!!!! Campout is only 74 days away, and the basketball commitee is already busy planning and organizing Campout 2014! 
Campout is by FAR the largest graduate and professional student event that unites over 2,500 students from every school and department. At it's core, Campout is the mechanism by which students procure season tickets to men's basketball games! More broadly, Campout is a deeply cherished event that allows students to forge bonds with peers from across the institution making it a hallmark of the Duke graduate and professional student experience!
We have HUGE plans for making this the best Campout of the decade! For starters, we would like to invite EVERYONE to our brand new Campout FB page. This page is designed to be a hub of information pertaining to Campout! Via this FB page, we hope to:
- Communicate Campout policies, events, and timelines (registration, RVs, exemptions)
- Solicit student input for ways we can improve the Campout experience
- Advertise new Campout initiatives
- Provide a direct line of communication between the students and the basketball committee responsible for organizing Campout
