Visiting Duke’s Campus

Last week, before the Language Institute started -I promise that in my next post I will talk about it- we finally had the chance to do a small tour around Duke’s Campus. It was a really hot and humid Sunday evening, and the campus was almost empty. We were told that things change completely during the school year.

First, we visited Duke’s Chapel, a really beautiful building that really impressed us, as we thought it would be much more smaller than it actually is. It was built in 1932 and is around 65 m tall -210 feet.

We also went to visit the football and baseball stadiums. We left the best for another day: the basketball stadium. Duke is really famous for its basketball team, and all of us are already looking forward to watch and cheer the Blue Devils.
