“Beautiful campus!”
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.

Reviewed October 19, 2011

Duke University has to be one of the most beautiful campuses I have ever visited. The old stone buildings and the chapel are so beautiful.

“AMAZING Campus - GREAT Basketball Atmosphere!”
Reviewed September 12, 2011

LET'S GO DUKE! Carolina Fans discontinue reading now ;-)

Duke has got to have, hands down, one of the best college campuses in the country. We've gone there just to walk around and "take it all in". You can see some of the most beautiful buildings ever and they keep the grounds extremely clean and orderly.

The atmosphere and history of this campus is just awesome.

The Chapel is a must see! It's very old and historic and gives off amazing vibes.

Cameron Indoor Stadium is also quite the historic experience! Be willing to camp out for tickets or check out Ebay.

Wallace Wade is getting better and better along with the footballl program.

Great places to eat! Tons of places to get Duke merchandise. You can spend an afternoon here with or without an event going on!!!

“Great Architecture - Amazing Chapel”
Reviewed January 8, 2008

On Thanksgiving morning we visited the campus and chapel of Duke University. It was a beautiful and colorful Fall day. The architecture was incredible and the chapel stained glass was awesome. It's a great place to take photos for family pictures, pre-wedding, etc. The archways and stone really grabs your attention. See Duke University album of photos here:
