Lucky to live in North Carolina and have one of the best hospitals in the world just hours away from your home. It appears everyone you meet there from doctors to nurses are some of the tops in their fields. Their resumes are impeccable and very impressive.

Make time for a stroll under the arches and try to count all of the students you see wearing Duke gear. Actually it would be much easier to count the ones who aren't wearing something that says Duke- very faithful students!!

Duke University has a special place in our heart as our oldest attended here. Be sure to see Cameron indoor Stadium and the Chapel. The Bryant Student Center has many new improvements. Walk through the Quad at night. Magical.

We visited the campus recently on a college tour. The campus, even in winter, is beautiful, with a park-like setting and beautiful buildings. Clearly, there is a lot of impressive research going on here and the student body is top notch. I will say that if basketball is NOT your thing, then you can cross Duke off your college list....

Not only is this one of the nation's best universities, it is also the home of the Duke Blue Devils and their #1 Coach. I just can't say enough good things about this university.

Walking this campus is an amazing experience. Each building is worth a look as the architecture is very impressive. Don't miss Duke chapel, which is like a European cathedral. Beautiful old trees form the perfect backdrop for this lovely campus. A nice walk!

Duke University is the ivy league of the south, with its Gothic architecture, old stately trees, two separate leafy campuses, a cathedral type church, and some modern renditions of neo-Gothic style.

I ended up lost by the medical center while attempting to locate the University Bookstore. The three university security guards were kind and guided me to the correct path. This change in plans allowed a beautiful walk through the Duke campus which was a special treat in itself! The brick and stone buildings were breathtaking. What a special campus!
