French scholar Emile Zola once said that we cannot claim to have seen something until we have photographed it. Well, here's a chance to really see Duke's campus. On Friday, the university will host a Photo Walk featuring its scientific labs and research facilities, from the Canine Cognition Center to various biological greenhouses to the newly-opened Mary Duke Biddle Trent Semans Center.
A Photo Walk essentially is a guided tour with the added bonus of tips from university photographers and access to beautiful spaces you wouldn't think to explore on your own. This walk is geared towards curious amateurs. In fact, it's geared towards those of us who snap photos on our smartphones instead of cameras, so participants are encouraged to tag snapshots with #pictureDuke for a chance to win recognition and prizes.
The two-hour walk is free of charge and begins at 2pm at the Knut Schmidt-Nielsen & Camel Statue next to the Biological Sciences building. Click here for more information and to register.
