Duke University is stunningly beautiful. The grounds over the old world charm and the chapel itself is something you cannot miss, It is old and very grand and well preserved.

Be sure to take a map or better yet your GPS enabled phone because they seem to lack street signs or signs labeling most of the buildings.

A great and prestigious university but it’s really hard to park anywhere near the Conference centers, and you have to walk a distance!

Duke University is very impressive. It has an old world quality which is emphasized by the Gothic buildings. It feels like a trip to Europe without airfare. The quad has an aura of serious scholarship. I highly recommend a tour of Duke for any student...More

We happened to be in the area and thought we’d check out the campus with our teenagers. Not only is it absolutely picturesque in its gothic exterior splendor, but it’s also modernized inside. The sports facilities are also top notch. Worth checking out!

Any fan of college basketball (especially Duke fans) owes it to themselves to see a game at Cameron. It is a bucket list experience

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
