Duke University information
Endowed by the Duke family's cigarette fortune, the university has a Georgian-style East Campus and a neo-Gothic West Campus notable for the towering 1930s Duke Chapel . This breathtaking place, with its 210ft tower and colorful, bible-themed glass windows, is impressive. The Nasher Museum of Art is also worth a gander, as is the heavenly 55-acre Sarah P Duke Gardens . Metered parking on campus is $2 per hour.
