International students playing badminton

It’s been a long and fun year. We’re counting down to LDOC with Duke University Archives photos of Duke students having a good time! (Click the photo to see it on our Flickr photostream, Duke Yearlook.)

Who wants to study when you can play badminton? Here, international students unwind with their new American friends as part of the Institute for International Education’s summer orientation program. Duke University served as a host institution for this U.S. State Department initiative from 1950 to 1957.

Countdown to LDOC:
