Campus Visit Notes for Duke University


Visit Description:

The tour and information session was a great way to see what Duke is really like. The campus is very large and spread out, which may be a turn off for some people but I personally love large campuses. Everyone was polite and courteous and the tour was really nice. However, it would have been nice to have seen the East and Central Campus since the freshman are required to live in the East Campus. Overall, the campus is very beautiful and I definitely will apply to Duke in the future.
