  • I visited the Duke Chapel, book store, Cameron Indoor, the Divinity School and walked around campus. The buildings are beautiful stone. The campus has slight rolling hills with side walks everywhere. ...  read more »
  • The Duke campus is a very well planned and laid out place. The buildings are set within nature and they have done their best to make sure you don't feel like you're visiting a campus, but enjoying a b...  read more »

  • My nostalgia for this place is off the charts--just wish I could have known then what I know now so that I could have much better appreciated my experience, the professors, the courses and the life knowledge that I learned in the 1970s. The constellations of memories I have are bitterly sweet as I remember those who I knew who are deceased. My consolation is that I studied comparative religion and therefore I learned that memories may in fact survive the death of the physical body, and I learned that storehouses of memories may exist that link us back--hook us back up with--those experiences and beings who many would say are gone.
  • UNC UNC UNC UNC UNC UNC. Kyeseckey sucks
  • Duke University is one of the best universities in the country and the world. Truly a world-class institution of higher learning, this prestigious university is world-renowned for its social and academic impact and its beautiful campus. Decent basketball team, too!
  • One of the more picturesque campuses in the country. Beautiful architecture, Duke chapel, the gardens, Cameron indoor and tons of new building going on including a new Medical school and some serious additions to the Medical center. The libraries on campus all offer a unique charm and they've added a number of coffee shops that make studying even more caffeinated! A beautiful afternoon walk and a great place to people watch if you've got a chance. Love the local vendors that reside near the student union building and west campus fields are great for intramural sports. Overall, an incredible place!
  • This is my absolute dream school I've wanted to go here since 5th grade, im in 7th now. I want to become a dermatologist and I'm still wondering how much it would cost for one year and housing and also out of state
