    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. If you love basketball, you have to come to Duke- we are the school that most recently won that thing.

    This seems like an amazing school from what I've seen. This school is also one of my dream schools and it has been for a while. My parents went here and I would like to go here too.

    Duke University is an amazing academic institutional institution with lots of personal and academic resources. Of course, it has its fair share of race relation issues. There are lots of sub-communities here, but not much cohesion between many diverse groups.

    Duke is an amazing school with an incredible, if sometimes overwhelming, number of opportunities available every day. Duke administration and students work to be academically, artistically, and socially open to new things and representative of the incredibly diverse student body. A Duke student is sure to have a one of a kind experience and is sure to find a place they feel at home.
