Review: Duke University is a private research university located in Durham, North Carolina, United States. Founded by Methodists and Quakers in the present-day town of Trinity in 1838, the school moved to Durham in 1892. In 1924, tobacco industrialist James Buchanan Duke established The Duke Endowment, prompting the institution to change its name in honor of his deceased father, Washington Duke. The University is organized into two undergraduate, ten graduate and professional schools, and seven institutes. Duke's research expenditures are among the largest ten in the nation. Competing in the Atlantic Coast Conference, Duke's athletic teams have won twelve national championships, including four by its men's basketball team. Besides academics, research, and athletics, Duke is also well known for its sizable campus and Collegiate Gothic architecture, especially the Duke Chapel. The forests surrounding parts of the campus belie the University's proximity to downtown Durham. Duke's 8,610 acres (35 km2) contain three contiguous campuses in Durham as well as a marine lab in Beaufort. Construction projects have updated the freshmen-populated, Georgian-style East Campus and the main Gothic-style West Campus, as well as the adjacent Medical Center over the past five years.
