Visited Duke campus in the fall. Beautiful campus, gardens and area. Packed into a relatively small area, so be mindful of traffic congestion.

We visited the campus for a football game, so we drove around and then walked around the campus. The buildings are beautifully designed, making it one of the most beautiful campuses we have seen. We wished we had more time to visit.

The architecture and arrangements of the buildings on campus are perfect. Taking a stroll around Duke's campus is a great way to start one's day or unwind after spending hours working or studying. Campus is so large that it has its own forest. Beware--don't get...More

One of the most beautiful universities in the US. Try the Duke Chapel or the legendary Cameron Indoor Basketball Stadium. Full of life during student season.

Unique experience. The Cameron Crazies are such fun to watch as well as the band and the game, of course. Our son is a Duke graduate who loved the school. As a result we became Duke fans and have attended four games.

I wish I were a student here... The University has many wonderful degree programs, intellectual events, research facilities and the grounds and architecture are amazing.

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

You can see the university at any time. The chapel is generally open unless there is a private event such as a wedding. The closest you'll get to Cameron is probably the attached Hall of Fame and Museum. The interior of... More
