    The campus is beautiful. Even if you don't want to go here, if you're around Durham you have to check out campus. The architecture is amazing.

    Duke University is a high level American institution, and as such, is a product of many good and bad factors. The level of resources and overall education is high. For the most part the institution does its job to its fullest ability.

  • I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    My parents both went here, and I am interested in learning more about how the school has evolved. Duke is a highly competitive school that prioritizes access of its undergraduates to research opportunities, excellent study abroad, and interdisciplinary, team-oriented experiences towards solving societal problems. All in the gorgeous Southern, Gothic wonderland setting.

  • I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    The campus is the most gorgeous and breathtaking scene out of many universities. The atmosphere is simply divine, and it's hard to find a place with a student who isn't smiling. After visiting the campus and learning about their diversity, cultural themes, and stunning academics, there was not a doubt in my mind that this was the one school for me.

    This has been my dream school for a while. It's also one of the few schools I've researched that has my future major, Neonatal Nursing / Maternity Care. I look forward to applying and (hopefully!) attending!
