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.

I've had great academic experiences, and gotten the chance for incredible opportunities. I've learned a lot about a myriad of fascinating and pertinent subjects. However, the student body doesn't seem to care about each other very much, and many people feel lonely. There is a huge emphasis placed on greek life and athletics that can be divisive.
