Everyone loves a bright day on the quad or a photo of the chapel glowing in the sun—but one underrated aspect of Duke's campus is the view at night. The landscape takes on a new life as lights illuminate the chapel and trees. Often students wandering the campus at night are the only ones who get to appreciate the calmness, so we wanted to explore Duke's beautiful gothic architecture after dark.
