Visit Duke.edu to find to vast variety of places to go as well as things to see and hear on this sprawling campus. Student food options are a grand bargain and reasonable pricing. Do remember that this is a place for learning.

My wife has been a Duke mens basketball fan for years so was thrilled to finally visit this campus. We thoroughly enjoyed the Cameron arena and actually got to walk on the court. We could imagine the Cameron Crazies cheering on Duke players.

Nice campus. Buildings are beautiful. Pretty quiet during break. Walked the gardens and visited the chapel. Stayed at the Inn on campus which is very nice as well.

I turned down Stanford to go here. Dukies are warm, balanced, smart, kind, hardworking and care about the world. They have life skills, they aren’t just brainiacs, although are super smart. I’ve stayed in touch with more than 20 dukies. Highly recommend this amazing institution!

I would try and specify this when making arrangements for your official tour. If you have a potential student for the team, I am sure they will want him to meet the coaches and see the stadium. We did not see it while... More
