Campus Visit Notes for Duke University


Visit Description:

Loved the college! Found out they have disney sing-alongs in their theater, which is very exciting. They have some very unique things with broadway shows and concerts and parties, etc. Their academics are fabulous as well. We met with the Nicolas School to talk about envr. science, which was very informative. Highly recommend meeting with the department you're interested in.
