Campus Visit Notes for Duke University
By far the nicest student body and campus i've visted. it's an incredible place. if you're consitering duke as your college of choice you should definetaly go visit and stay with a student. it was a great experience for me. i fell in love with Duke at first sight. i can't imagine it being any other way for someone else.
Hotel/Lodging Recommendations or Comments:
I stayed in a dorm with my friend. slept on his futon. it was great.
Dining/Restaurant Recommendations or Comments:
Plenty of on-campus eateries and many off-campus restaurants. you can find pretty much whatever you want.
Magnolia Grill is located on 9th street and is widely regarded as one of the best restaurant
Other Comments (Transportation, local attractions, parking, etc.):
Bus between East and West campus is fast and easy. i do not see it as detracting from duke's attractiveness at all.
