    Duke University is enhanced by the men's basketball team, but it is not defined by basketball or other sports. The success of its teams unites the university community and brings positive publicity to the school. However, sports are only part of the Duke experience.

    I found Duke University a very interesting school although it’s tuition out of state is expensive. Duke offers a variety of different full to partial scholarships and finicial aid. Duke is a very rural and competitive college if you find a fit on this aspects apply!

    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.

    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.
