Really nice, knowledgeable professors. Would definitely go again if I could -- almost over!
Party culture is pervasive -- make sure that entering students know to find their own friends. You dont have to participate if you dont want to.
Excellent academic reputation. Great sports activities and campus plant. Solid student credentials. I would hire students who went here in a heartbeat.
Durham has got to be the worst "sollege town" ever. Apart from the university, very little warrants living there. It is still reeling from the end of the tobacco era.
I went on a tour of Duke and really liked the sports scene. I went to a game and felt like the student body was excited about the team. I have heard very good things about the academics.

It was good for a law degree. THe girls were great openly friendly. I would hire some one from Duke.
I did not like the frat houses it was to crowd. I would give security to local police. Go to duke becuse you love school not for the party scene.
I love the fact that it is a small school, but the sports programs are always near the top in all of the NCAA. I also admire the passion that students and faculty have for the university itself. ...

Location - Durham. Nightlife outside of school is nonexistent unless you drive to Chapel Hill or Raleigh.
