Campus Visit Notes for Duke University


Visit Description:

We arrived at the admissions office for the info session. The info session was very crowded. The admissions officer asked every student to say where they were from and which high school they went to. Then the tour guides came, and I chose one who said she was in orchestra. She took us to some Greek life housing, a library, and other dorms. She told us about tenting for basketball games and how almost everyone participates even if they don't like basketball. I didn't get to see as much of the university as I might have wanted since we had to rush to UNC, but I really like the campus.
