Student Organizations

Duke’s Remnant
Duke Remnant is a student lead meeting where we pray and discuss many different topics of the bible, and we do so in a way that everyone will enjoy and understand. Our goal is to instill into others the knowledge they need/want to know in order to understand who God is and how they can become closer to him as well.
Advisor: Courtney Thorpe
Meet every other Thursday at lunch in Room 205 (Meyer)

Girl Talk
The purpose of Girl Talk is to communicate the importance of education in the lives of the young women from Duke Ellington School of the Arts. Georgetown University women show their support for Ellington girls’ academics by providing workshops and sessions where they cover aspects such as personal statements, interview skills, and available resources. Additionally, GU students include dialogue on social issues and other areas that impact their lives where they may want the perspective of other young women. It is their goal to promote positive discussions through effective communication and activities. They do this by establishing a safe environment where the young ladies feel comfortable to explore, challenge, and offer new insights through building new relationships not only with women from Georgetown, but also other girls in their own school.
