There is Greek Life at Duke, but it tends to fade into the background unless you’re an active participant. About 30% of men and 40% of women are active in Greek Life. The nightlife and party scene at Duke is what you make of it. Groups of friends tend to make their own fun.
The amount of school spirit and enthusiasm that Duke has for their sports teams is truly phenomenal, especially for the basketball team. Tickets to all varsity sports are free for students, making them a huge part of the culture at Duke. If you want to participate in the fun without joining varsity, students have a number of intramural sports you can sign up for.
