The culture shock was real in all aspects of Duke culture including campus life and academics but there is no regret of my choice in universities. Duke has its own unique way of life that is unparalleled.

I always get emails and calls from duke and hoping to take a tour next summer .Duke was always my number one school for sports never missed a game but law enforcement and medical is where it's at and looking at the the review stood out the most plus it's what I want to major in so I have no problem going there #💙bluedevlis

Duke was a fun experience but also very challenging. Everyone competes with each other to be better which will make you push yourself but also cause you to feel lost at times.
