Quote from person at Command who went there

  • “Duke prides itself on being younger and scrappier compared to many of its peer institutions. Students are encouraged to challenge the status quo and make use of the school’s inexhaustible resources to combine their interests in innovative and exciting ways. You don’t have to love basketball, of course, but I will say that ‘tenting’ in the dead of winter for tickets to the Carolina game is a great way to make friends for life (as well as potentially wind up with frostbite). All in all, I’d stress that Dukies feel very strongly about their status as Blue Devils. If you come here, you can expect your fellow classmates to be one thing: passionate.” -Caroline, class of 2018
