    Go into Durham and walk around in the old tobacco district. Also, visit the nearby Eno River State Park. Highly recommended

    a cornerstone of the duke experience that separates it from several of its peer institutions is the knowledge that if you are a student in attendance, you will have nothing but fun when you are not working your hardest. aside from the enthralling experience promised at any of duke's 26 varsity division i sports competitions--all free of charge to students, who need only show their student ids to gain admission--students are the beneficiaries of such organizations as duke university union (duu), pitchforks, and duke university improv, which bring speakers and top artists, nationally renowned a cappella singing, and positively hilarious college humor to touch the hearts and minds of students who otherwise have their heads buried in the library out of sheer love of learning and a desire to excel in school. while devils after dark provides laser tag, movie nights, trips to the local mall, and any number of other college staples to appeal to just about all students on campus, students also have the option to rush for any of the dozens of fraternity and sorority chapters and duke selective living groups (slgs) on campus and derive most of their friday and saturday night fun from the brotherhood, sisterhood, and other bonds of companionship these groups afford duke students. whatever your taste in having a good time, there's an awfully good chance that duke has got the entertainment to hit your sweet spot, and keep you coming back every week for even more fun than you had the last time.

    Duke students exemplify Work Hard, Play Hard. After studying and getting good grades, the majority of students find their release in sports, partying, and other high energy activities. However, there are still activities like concerts, speakers, and art activities to cater to a variety of student interests.

    So. Much. Opportunity. You can do literally anything you like at Duke. Campus is very large, and very open to everyone. You have to come to see what its like though, I won't spill all the secrets for non-Dukies to steal.

    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.
