    By far my favorite campus I've visited. The area has a beautiful archaic look, but has modern interiors that provide the epitome of comfort. My favorite part of the Duke campus is definitely the Duke forest. As a runner, the 20-some miles of trails are absolutely perfect.

    The students are intellectual and interesting to converse with and to top it all off, the campus is BEAUTIFUL! There are great tall oak trees lining the very center of campus near the chapel. Even the flowers are wonderful.
