Anyone interested in college hoops- a trip to Duke is a must. It's a BEAUTIFUL campus and very historical. Take the time to walk the campus. It's well worth your trip!

I’ve been to countless campuses and this is among the nicest. I was told ‘the Dukies’ are often rude and snobby...I couldn’t have been treated better. Beautiful place.

Lovely and interesting old buildings. We enjoyed our walk around here, since we were in the Gardens. Large campus, we only saw a portion of it.

Beautiful campus to tour if you are a prospective student or just want to see a beautiful campus. Don't miss Duke Chapel or the Duke Gardens. Suggest parking at the Duke Gardens and walking from there onto campus.

This University is one of my sons top 5. We did the tour and it is probably one of the most beautiful campuses I have ever seen. It is a little spread out but worth the visit. There are several places you would want to...More

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.

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
