Why Duke?

I chose Duke because of the incredible academic flexibility and emphasis on interdisciplinary learning. If you have an idea for any project, Duke will give you every resource imaginable to pursue it. I also love that there are so many advising and support systems available for students, and that student make an equal commitment to academics and having fun! Finally, I love the North Carolina weather and the beautiful nature around campus.
