    Duke is an incredibly expensive university - but often times the amenities offered seem to make up for this. There are top notch academic professors, there is easy to find funding for special events and activities, new, well kept athletic facilities are readily available, freebies are often easy to find, and one always feels safe on campus. I can't say for sure whether Duke is worth the price tag, but most students rarely feel they're being cheated.

    Expensive but the level of classes, activities, special holiday meals, clubs and outside of the classroom experiences(study abroad, internships) give you a big bang for your buck!

    For the cost of tuition, Duke really does provide everything for their students when it comes to free t-shirts and concerts to academic resources.

    In my science major, lots of classes were large lecture. I've found that students who take seminars are more satisfied with their Duke experience.
