AMAZING ARCHITECTURE, ACADEMICS AND ATHLETICS
Duke’s main campus—referred to by students as the “Gothic Wonderland” due to its Collegiate Gothic architecture—was mostly designed by Julian Abele, one of the first prominent African-American architects. At the campus’ center is the 210-foot Duke Chapel, which was built from 1930 to 1935.
Another notable attraction is Environmental Hall, home to the Nicholas School of the Environment and a five-story building that earned LEED platinum certification for sustainability. In addition, the 55-acre Sarah P. Duke Gardens—which were established in the 1930s—are a popular destination, featuring four major sections, each with unique species of flora. The university’s art collections can be found at the Nasher Museum of Art which contains over 13,000 works of art.
In addition to academic excellence, Duke is well-known for its athletic achievements. The Blue Devils primarily compete in the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC), having won 126 ACC championships and 16 NCAA team national championships.
