We were fortunate enough to obtain tickets through a friend. Cameron Indoor Stadium is a must see for any basketball fans.

Loved walking around the campus and looking at all the old buildings and all the new buildings designed to look old! The chapel is beautiful and was lucky to hear a choir rehearsing. Everyone was very helpful with directions and suggestions

Family decided to do a winter college tour and this stop was a must. Beautiful campus! Parked in the garage off of Science drive. Walked around the whole main campus. Took us about 2 hours. Duke chapel was a must see! Both kids wanted to apply right there!

Absolutely gorgeous campus, one of the nicest i have ever seen! If you can walk around and explore, i highly suggest i! Buildings are outstanding...the only thing i didn't love is the Freshman's campus so far away, but its worth going to see how different the building structures are!!

Stunning campus and so much to offer. Parking can be a challenge but worth it even if you don't stop and just drive through.

Duke has a beautiful campus that is wonderful to walk around and explore. The buildings are varied and interesting and the landscaping is pretty. There are plenty of eating options on campus and you can park in the Bryan Center for easy access to the central part of campus.
