**Neat Campus**

Old and Gothic at times. Campus is very spread out. Very easy to navigate around. Lots of sidewalks.

Went there for an admissions tour with my son - beautiful campus, great atmosphere. A must see destination both architecturally and if you want to feel the vibe of a happy student community.

The chapel and main area of the university are a must see. You can easily just spend 1 hour and visit the chapel as well as take a few must-do pictures. The campus is really breath taking and I felt like I was back in England.

Was rejected admission so I really missed it, literally! Sarah P. Duke Garden was always the highlight on every campus visit tour. Also the height of each storey on Duke campus is higher than average imparting a spacious feel. Student community very close-knit and education quality is very high.

I didn't think it right to charge hospital visitors for parking. Anything over a few hours earned you the maximum rate of eight dollars. It cost me $32 the day I made several trips to the airport. I learned they even make many of the employees pay for parking.

Quite a remarkable institution! Plenty of summer construction but was able to walk around safely. A beautiful campus! Always enjoy visiting the book store and having a meal at the Loop. The Museum inside Cameron Indoor is always the highlight of the trip!

Took the Duke University College Tour. WOW! We loved the architecture of the school and our tour guide was very informative.
