Do yourself a favor. Take a walking tour of the main part (the quads) of Duke's campus... it is incredible. I imagine going to school at Duke would be like going to school at a castle. It is easy to see why Blue Devil nation...More

What a beautiful day we had on the Duke University campus! The tour we had showcased the football stadium, basketball arena, The Chapel and the Children's Hospital. Beautiful campus!

Best time to visit Duke is on the weekend (NOT football or basketball weekends!) when it's easy to find parking and wander the campus at your leisure. You will have to drive from one campus to the other, but it is worth doing so.

Beautiful architecture at a premium university. Did the formal admissions tour and was glad we did. Interesting old world gothic architecture outside, modern lifestyle inside.

Duke is a well designed use of stone buildings and out door study/group space for students. Walk the campus for a reflection time.

Though nearby UNC has a fairly nice campus, it is completely overshadowed by the beauty that is Duke. Worth a trip anytime visitors are in town, West Campus is your main stop to check out the Gothic architecture, gorgeously manicured campus, the Duke Gardens, the...More
