"Armed with our vibrant array of DukeEngage experiences, we had a meaningful time sharing our summer exploits, contemplating on the things which matter most to us, and roasting s'mores on two crisp and cool nights." ~Jing Song Ng (DukeEngage Vietnam 2010)
"The DukeEngage Civic Leadership Retreat not only provided me with an outlet to reflect on my DukeEngage experiences and think of ways to continue building on my summer experiences at Duke, but also with a chance to meet a diverse set of individuals who share with me a love for their DukeEngage experiences. It was a relaxing--since we were on a beautiful farm away from campus--yet intellectually stimulating way to spend my Fall Break. I am still friends with the people that I met at the Retreat, and I know if you go on this trip, you will gain a lot from it." ~Yangyang Guo (DukeEngage SEC Guatemala 2010)
“I felt that it was a great experience that really allowed me to reflect on my experiences, goals, and values in a novel way. It was a very insightful retreat, and I'd highly recommend it to anyone who wants an intense yet flexible way of furthering their DukeEngage experience. “ ~Connie Cheng (DukeEngage CET Vietnam 2010)
“It’s the best retreat I’ve ever been on!” ~Daniel Wong (DukeEngage Crownpoint, NM 2010)
