I'm from New York and I go to a school down south (not Duke) but the atmosphere is very different and i think its better ! When you first tell people your from up north your going to get the "And you came all the way down here" or they'll make fun of your accent but that will past within the first 2 weeks of knowing that person. People are much more friendlier vs up where we stay. The weather is better than Massachusetts any day ! Life is less stressful down south. Go for it ! :)
Thank you so much!
no problem ! College is a once in a lifetime expierence. Get your education but have fun and adventure out as well :)

Though it may not be the most diverse campus in the world, Duke does have a large and thriving community of students from almost every ethnic background. Sometimes these "diverse" groups self-segregate (particularly through race-specific clubs or Greek organizations), but, on the whole, the ethnically and geographically diverse student body meshes well.
Economic diversity at Duke is a bit of a different story. In this regard, the Duke population is noticeably homogenous. The majority of students hails from the upper-middle class, as evidenced by the rich, preppy style sported by many on campus. This is not to say that everyone owns a yacht, plays golf and squash at a country club, and will come into a trust fund at graduation, nor that students are obnoxious and eager to show off their wealth—but you will want to be aware of this social makeup before you come to Duke.
