About the Duke Graduate Student Basketball Committee
Role of the Basketball Committee
The Basketball Committee is composed of volunteer students from Duke University's Graduate & Professional Schools. Each year, the Basketball Committee is responsible for planning Campout, overseeing the distribution of season tickets to the Men's home basketball games and managing the game day experience for Graduate and Professional Students. The policy for ticket distribution is composed by the committee and brought before the General Assembly for approval. The Basketball Chairs of this committee are appointed via a vote by active committee members.

Want to get involved?
As a committee, we are always looking for new members, volunteers and ideas for Campout. All Duke Graduate and Professional students are welcome to join the Basketball Committee. There are a number of ways to get involved and the degree of involvement is entirely up to you. Your involvement and contributions as a committee member make you eligible to usher Men's basketball games.
In our entirely biased opinion, there is no other group at Duke that has more fun doing their jobs than us! The Basketball Committee is a great way for students to meet people from outside their program/school and as an usher, you can attend basketball games and stand in the front of our section!
The Basketball Committee meets regularly from New Student Orientation until Campout. The dates for the Fall 2016 meetings will be announced in August via our email list and social media. Bring your Duke ID to scan for attendance!
You must attend two of the three meetings to qualify to be eligible to usher (please email Committee Secretary Abbe LaBella in case of conflicts).
Much of the organization and planning that goes into Campout each year is performed by Sub-Committee Leaders whom are selected via an application process open to all Graduate & Professional students in the spring. In the fall, sub-committees will solicit volunteers at Basketball Committee meetings as well as through the list-serv for various opportunties during Campout. The success of Campout is attributed largely in part to all our volunteers!
