I turned down Stanford to go here. Dukies are warm, balanced, smart, kind, hardworking and care about the world. They have life skills, they aren’t just brainiacs, although are super smart. I’ve stayed in touch with more than 20 dukies. Highly recommend this amazing institution!

Campus has lots of walkways and is easy to navigate. Currently has construction, but can get around easily.

We visited the chapel and the botanical gardens at Duke University. Driving through campus was like driving through a park - so many huge trees everywhere, just beautiful.
