What is your overall opinion of this school?

Duke Univesity is an amazing school for work-life balance. Students at Duke are certainly hard workers, but academics do not define them. The choice to separate freshmen on a different campus fostered an amazing tight-knit community that contributed to this balance. My adjustment to college was seamless, as I easily connected with people around me. Classes, especially those in Engineering worked to encourage collaboration between peers. The dining food has plenty of options, and I never got bored of the food. The one complaint I would have is that the math department does not match the academic excellence I have seen in other departments.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I loved the school thanks to the people and the intellectual conversations. The food and housing was better and more expansive than many other top schools. However, I would say I did not not feel safe all the time due to issue of race and gender and the school's seemingly lackadaisical response to those issues. Overall, it is an elite school and I learned so much about myself. I do not regret choosing this university but I wish administration would pay more attention to issues of mental health, and racial/sexual/gender discrimination.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Imagine you're on a bus, similar to public transit but a little nicer, and you finish going around a circle. Straight ahead is the Duke Chapel, and it looks exactly like what is on the brochure. The bus pulls up to the West Campus stop, and you hurry off the bus before the hoards of students trap you there. To the left are dorms, dining options, and beyond, the famous Cameron Indoor Stadium. To the right are classroom buildings, libraries, and the Duke Hospital. So many options, so much to do, so much to see. Depending on the time of day and period in the semester, students are either playing spike-ball on the quad or crying in various locations (see our bingo sheet). Duke is a place that prides itself on being the "best of both worlds," whether that is balancing frat parties and econ classes, building robots and being a Cameron Crazy, or living in Vondy and performing with DefMo, the choice is up to you.

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.
