One of the more picturesque campuses in the country. Beautiful architecture, Duke chapel, the gardens, Cameron indoor and tons of new building going on including a new Medical school and some serious additions to the Medical center. The libraries on campus all offer a unique charm and they've added a number of coffee shops that make studying even more caffeinated!A beautiful afternoon walk and a great place to people watch if you've got a chance.Love the local vendors that reside near the student union building and west campus fields are great for intramural sports.Overall, an incredible place!
