Duke Campus Facts

Originally, Duke University was founded in 1838. It was re-established in 1924 as the university we know today by industrialist James Buchanan Duke. The campus is huge, taking up 8,600 acres of land that’s filled with lush woods and a distinctive Gothic architecture. The university is one of the most selective in the U.S.

Duke’s Trinity College of Arts and Sciences as well as Duke’s Pratt School of Engineering are widely regarded as some of the best undergraduate educational experiences. Many of these undergraduates have gone on to impact the world in various ways. U.S. President Richard Nixon received his law degree from Duke. Three Nobel Prize recipients attended Duke as well as a number of writers and actors, including William Styron and Ken Jeong. Academics is just one of Duke’s highlights, as their basketball team is one of the most accomplished in the collegiate arena.
