Reasons to attend and to not attend Duke University

To Attend

  • “It has a pretty amazing alumni network. There will always be people you can reach out to who will help you. When I graduate, I will definitely want to help any students who reach out to me.”
  • “The types of opportunities Duke has forces you to be outgoing in terms of networking on campus. That may not be where everyone is most comfortable, and it certainly sometimes feels disingenuous, but it is an important life skill to learn.”
  • “It’s fun. There is a good social network and a good balance between academics and social life. Without it, I would be drowning from the work.”

To Not Attend

  • “Socially it can be hard.” [If you’re not part of an SLG or Greek life organization, it can feel like you are not getting the full Duke experience.]
  • “The pre-professional culture can sometimes be a lot and will make you feel like the only reason you’re doing something is to get to the next place.”
  • “The academic rigor can be a problem for students.”
