Not much to do. We couldn't even find many fast food restaurants near campus. [View Full Report]

the campus has more of a sprawl feeling- which surprised me. Need to ride the bus around vs walking [View Full Report]

Duke is so incongruous with its surrounding city, Durham. All their glorified food eateries on the edge of campus were pretty sketch as well... [View Full Report]

The Duke student who was my host said the area right around Duke's campus is not the best area. If you walk a few blocks down, you are pretty much in the ghetto. [View Full Report]

Nicely kept. Pretty trees. It seemed okay. That's all I noticed...Oh there was this bridge with graffiti on it but half of it was Duke oriented stuff. I really don't know much about Durham. [View Full Report]

It really wasn't that great and some parts didn't appear to be safe. Why I gave a 3 instead of a 2 is that there are some nice places to eat and Brightleaf Square right off East, which is n [View Full Report]

The area around the campus is lined with beauty. Entering the campus is a great feeling. Duke is really isolated from the city of Durham it seems. [View Full Report]

Went through the Duke Forest on the way there to get there, but Durham itself is kind of slummy (I live in NC and have been to Durham on several occasions) [View Full Report]

Durham is an old tobacco town, so many of its buildings are under renovation and look ghetto as a consequence. The town itself looks a bit bleak, but there's so much on campus you won't be [View Full Report]

Durham is close enough to provide stuff to do without smothering the campus like some other cities do to their colleges. [View Full Report]

Ehh, Durham wasn't like, a ghetto, but it wasn't pretty or anything. It was kind of just...there. I only saw it in the taxi to and from the airport. [View Full Report]

I can't really say much about this because I didn't really spend much time around the perimiter of Duke, but it just seemed like regular old college surroudings. Very woodsy, some old houses. [View Full Report]

Area immediately around West Campus very quiet. East Campus borders Durham, so there is slightly more to do and see. [View Full Report]
