Giles Quad of East Campus, with TiPsters playing ultimate. The Union building can be seen in the back.


East is one of the sites for TIP Center for Summer Studies. It is the most traditional and fun campus, and its courses are often more artistic ones. Most classes are the SAME each year, we want something new! East is undoubtedly the best campus as it is superior to that of other campuses! Don't listen to West propaganda!

East Term I is the ideal Tip lifestyle. No to Term II, administration is worse!

Features of Duke East

East is, by far, the best campus for TiP. Its proximity to Ninth Street and its several large quads (see below) make it fun at breaks and for activities, while its lack of air conditioning, erm well, it certainly forms a bond among the TiPsters, in addition to making it extra-imperative that we get to know each other quickly, because death by heat stroke always seems imminent. *Starting in 2012, the East dorms got fans, although many have stopped working since.* There are no more 1st years because TiP got too big. In 1998 term 1, the TiPster Population was 534 in 5 dorms, including Giles

The boundaries used to be anywhere within East Campus (to the wall), and no 4th year 9th street privileges. Once the lights came on, you had to be within the current boundaries, Baldwin to bus stop in front of the dorms or in a dorm.
