What is your overall opinion of this school?

I hold Duke to very high standards. I do my best to call the administration out when they do some not so great things, but I also recognize all the good that Duke does for their students and all of the opportunities that are given to us. I love Duke University, but they still have lots of work to do. They need to listen to their students of color and the concerns they have and they need to be more proactive rather than reactive to incidents of hate on campus. But Duke also is the leading college in service learning, the amount of time and money that goes into some of the opportunities and programs that we have available to the students is incredible and should not be taken lightly. It is an immense privilege to attend Duke and I am at grateful to attend somewhere I feel comfortable and safe.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Duke University has it all -- academics, athletics, and fun. The school spirit creates a sense of community that most colleges don't get, yet is crucial for the best college experience possible. Duke does not have a cut throat culture, since we are all connected by the blood. We bleed blue. Our love for our school is fueled by our love for our basketball team. Aside from sports, Duke has so many opportunities. With Bass Connections, Duke Engage, and more research positions than there are students, Duke University is the place to be if you want an elite and rigorous education with a fun and spirited environment. I recommend having a car at this University. Durham and the surrounding area near UNC is vibrant, but not having a car can make students feel trapped in the "Duke Bubble."

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Duke is an incredible university. It has a multitude of opportunities and provides a safe space for students of every nationality, gender, sexual orientation, religion, and ethnic background. The food is easily the best provided by any college in the country. The mental health network is incredible and has been very accommodating to my health needs. The teachers are easily accessible and friendly. My only complaint would be that there are some people who feel that it is acceptable to hate on people who come from a very conservative background. People have very strong political opinions on campus, and I am in the minority when it comes to my own viewpoints. Other than this, Duke is the dream.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe Duke University in the place to be! The student body, the teachers, the academics, and more are what make Duke University the way it is today. Professors and other students are so open to helping and answering any questions we freshman may have. If it wasn't for Duke, I wouldn't have found my passion for Sociology and Anthropology.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Duke is very competitive, and there are a lot of very intelligent people on campus, but people are very willing to help you out and there are resources to aid you in classes, mental health, etc. The campus is gorgeous and the food is pretty good too! There aren't many college bars around and Durham is not a college town, but there's the occasional thing to do off campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Was fired from internship. I was fired from internship without cause. They told wrong fit and incorrect project idea. No meetings if I could improve or do differently. I tried my best for my project, but was feeling any directions I chose were not right. Again, no meetings, advices or help. I didn’t receive any official explanation what I did wrong exactly. I had more than several weeks to submit my project. Complaint department even didn’t send me an official conclusion what was wrong. I spent on such experience 7 K. Many people told me, I was fired because a coordinator hated me. In such fast, without respect and explanation, I was told to leave. My family lost their health thinking about me. Be careful with this organization. They don’t like people.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely love this school. There is a great balance of academic and social life. You will never be bored here with the abundance of activities that are going on around campus year round. Everyone is friendly for the most part. The only thing I would work on improving is how the administration handles issues involving minority groups. Minority groups can sometimes be shoved to the side and when the problems are brought up they can be swept under the rug. That definitely needs to change. Aside from that, Duke is a great choice and I do not regret my decision to attend this school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I LOVE Duke! It has everything I could ever want in a university. The academics are AMAZING. Professors and even my classmates are always willing to go the extra mile to help me understand material. There are so many resources and support systems waiting to be utilized. On top of the excellent academics, our basketball team is internationally known! There's something for everybody in all aspects at Duke!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Duke is an incredible university. More than anything else, Duke students embody a sense of community and pride in our university. Our work hard, play hard mentality is very evident— a typical weekend for a Duke student involves a couple of hours in Perkins Library to grind out some homework, a rousing turnout in Cameron Indoor Stadium to support our basketball team, and an evening at Shooters, dancing the night away with friends and loved ones. Duke students are there for each other, always. Go Blue Devils!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The first time I stepped onto the campus, I was immediately mesmerized by the radiating beauty of the architecture. I joined a tour of the campus as well, and almost every student I spoke with seemed passionate about their major; in fact, Duke University bleeds passion. There seems to be so many opportunities for students, whether it's studying abroad or participating in internships. There are countless clubs and activities for students to join, whether it's sports or the arts or even robotics. And don't even get me started on the food. The selection at Duke University is so diverse, and the food that they serve is absolutely delicious. As a student in high school, Duke University is definitely one of my top dream schools, and I would be beyond ecstatic to be able to join such a passionate community full of motivated students (and the food, of course).
