  • Apr-26-2017 I am researching this school and have not visited the campus

    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!

    there is no other place in america where you will tap into a richer infusion of pioneering professors in their fields, fully-funded research and civil service opportunities both at home and overseas, and a fabled athletics program enveloping a worldwide fan base than at duke university. from developing single-sound multispeakers to researching glioblastoma-curing applications with renowned faculty in electrical engineering and cancer medicine, duke students are contributing to the world's next breakthroughs in communications and medicine by day, before donning the blue and white body paint to senselessly cheer for one of the most iconic and winningest athletics program in all of sports history, by night. for these reasons and many more, it's no wonder why any aspiring eighteen-year-old difference maker wouldn't want to spend four years of his or her life on this incredible campus.

    The campus is breathtaking, with a near-perfect mix of nature and architecture. Just outside the campus there's a cute little town that provides students with plenty to do and eat. The education is top of the line, and very competitive.

    Work hard, play hard is definitely the motto of Duke students, which has undeniably been one of the best parts of my first semester. Other students are really friendly and collaborative, so any competition is completely healthy and not at all cutthroat, while professors are genuinely interested in helping their students learn. Campus is gorgeous, there's no way to be unhappy there, and food is better than average for a college campus.

    Duke is a top-notch research university with a massive amount of school spirit. There is no typical Duke experience - each student makes it his or her own. However, the most successful students are entrepreneurial types who are not afraid to take advantage of all Duke has to offer.

    Duke is the located on the most beautiful campus in America, right in the great state of North Carolina. Duke students are the ones who coined the term work hard, play hard, as you will never find a place as challenging but rewarding as you will find in Duke University.
