Duke is a really great place. There are many, many amazing people who aren't pretentious about their own accomplishments even though they usually have a lot to be proud of.

Duke's campus is very beautiful even though there is a lot of building going on right now. I see the building as a really great thing though because we are really striving to be among the very best, and I think that we are succeeding. We have/will soon have a new art museum, science research centers, huge library addition/renovation, public policy building, additions to the Law, Business, and Divinity schools, and the list goes on and on, trust me. I feel that there is no other school that is improving as quickly as Duke is.

Another good thing, I feel, is that Duke is very self-critical and able to identify problems and try to fix them, which I don't think that every school would do as openly as Duke does.

All of my teachers have been great. I will admit that sometimes work becomes a chore and seems to emphasize just lots of work and hard test rather than pure learning, but most often that's not the case, and you will find that at virtually every school anyways. It's really up to the student whether or not s/he takes advantage of all the educational opportunities here. Having a world-class hospital right next door is pretty cool too, for premed students and those interested in biomedical research.

The worst thing would be the bus system as a freshman; it can be annoying. But I've realized recently that to go from one end to the other of most college campuses would take at least 30 minutes (the amount of time it takes me to walk from East to West) and they don't even have buses to help them out. But that only lasts one year, so it's all good.
