“A Beautiful Campus”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2011

One of the most beautiful campuses in the US. The buildings in the core of an unusual stone in a convincing neo-Gothic style. All are situated amidst trees and rolling green hills. Walking is a challenge due to the hills and parking is not easy.

“Duke university is quite nice place.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2011

Duke campus is quite nice, and has lots of trees. if you visit the university, you should go to Sara P Duke Gardens well. It is a well maintained garden, has plenty of flowers. Although November is not its best time, I can still sense the beauty when flowers are in blossom. There are quite nice trails to walk on, and you could stop by the pool, where you will spot some black necked swan. Quite nice.

“Drop dead gorgeous campus”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2011

I'm sure the campus must be beautiful all year round, but driving through on a drizzly fall day was incredibly picturesque. The architecture is stunning, and the trees simply amazing.

“Beautiful campus!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2011

This campus is fun interesting and nice to walk around. You can take a shuttle from the hotel and see it. It has many old buildings and the archetecture is beautiful! The people are friendly.
