Great University. Social Too – There's by far a better social life than any other top university. There's a lot to do, especially for those in frats. My only complaint is that second semester it's hard to be independent because frats close their parties. Some brothers are pretty full of themselves like anywhere. What I love most is that people understand when you have homework and can't go out. If you go to a state school, you'll get a lot of crap from people about working too much, but everyone works hard here.
It's Pretty Convenient – It can be a pain at times though. They stop running C1's on weekends and after 8 on weekdays now, so it can take 15 minutes for a bus to come and another 15 minutes for the bus to take you between east and west campus
It's Preppy, but That's Probably a Good Thing. Duke has much more attractive people than any other top university. The school is very fratty, but there's a large independent crowd that manages to enjoy life just as well.
It's Definitely There – I'd say a good 50% of the class ends up smoking weed at some point, which you'll find at any college. Cocaine is surprisingly common but really just within certain fraternities
Printing is usually convenient. Every once in a while a printer will be jammed or you won't have a printer nearby. Computers are fine. Good internet access
