    Duke sporting events are always incredibly exciting - don't let them go to waste! Frats are likely the most common source of open parties, but many organizations throw parties throughout the year as well. Shooters is the go-to club in the area, a 5-10 minute walk from East Campus. Devine's is another, less common, club that people go to.

    Outside of the classroom, feel free to get involved in one of our 400+ student run clubs. Go out into Durham and try some of the best restaurants in the nation, go the Durham Bulls Ball Park to catch a baseball game, visit the Durham Performance Arts Center and see a broadway show, travel to Raleigh or Chapel Hill and see other types of towns in North Carolina, and, of course, GO TO DUKE BASKETBALL GAMES. We are called the Cameron Crazies and every Duke Basketball game is FREE for undergraduates. If you want to learn more, visit: http://kvillenation.com.

    To be honest, there are so many events on campus that you never have to leave. There are concerts, guest speakers, parties by recognized groups on campus. There are places that some students go off campus to party, but I have never gone and don't feel like I'm missing anything. You also can't beat the athletics- I'm not a big sports fan but it is easy to get caught up in and excited about being a Blue Devil!!

    Duke basketball games are a major way to get involved at Duke and have some fun. But there are many other ways too. Durham, NC is one of the most beautiful cities in the nation with many parks, hiking trails and scenic areas to explore. All of the nature areas are only minutes from campus. Studying at Duke is an outdoorsman's and nature lover's dream.

    As much as I hate the Duke slogan work hard, play hard, I must admit that it is a pretty accurate description of the campus lifestyle. Now, I'm not saying that the only thing to do on campus is party, all though that is certainly a big part of what students do. There is always something going on, somewhere, just about at any time, whether it be a party, a Duke event, workshop, concert, etc. Check out the Duke Performances, because as students, you get $10 tickets to a whole bunch of incredible shows that would ordinarily cost much more. Hit up the free concerts at Coffeehouse, or the fascinating workshops at the Arts Annex. If you're bored on campus, it's not Duke's fault, it's yours.

    Duke provides events for students everyday and all throughout the week. Durham isn't the biggest college town, but there are great places to eat, shop, engage in the arts and get dirty (if you love being outside).
