Crowley College Prep Scholarship Recipient
I want to erase the de facto marginalization against those whose lives resemble mine. My identity is not what makes my characteristics and future success. It’s me to accomplish it. Knowing my strong determination and positive zeal, my friends at school as well as family members, not expected, fully support and encourage me in whatever I do. I want to be able to share my stories with others, to be proud of who I am, to encourage people to fight for who we are, and most significantly, to prove that anyone could dream big to help better our community, I’m not abnormal!
For this student and others donate to aid in a bright future! Crowley College Prep is pleased to update you! Quang is attending Duke University
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 and electric power industrialist James B. Duke established The Duke Endowment, at which time the institution changed its name to honor his deceased father, Washington Duke.
The university’s campus spans over 8,600 acres (35 km2) on three contiguous campuses in Durham as well as a marine lab in Beaufort. Duke’s main campus—designed largely by African American architect Julian Abele—incorporates Gothic architecture with the 210-foot (64 m) Duke Chapel at the campus’ center and highest point of elevation. The freshmen-populated East Campus contains Georgian-style architecture, while the main Gothic-style West Campus 1.5 miles away is adjacent to the Medical Center.
Duke’s research expenditures in the 2012 fiscal year were $1.01 billion, the seventh largest in the nation. Competing in the Atlantic Coast Conference, Duke’s athletic teams, known as the Blue Devils, have captured 15 team national championships, including four by its high profile men’s basketball team. In 2013, Duke was ranked 17th and 23rd in the world by Times Higher Education World University Rankings and QS World University Rankings, respectively, while tying for 7th in the U.S. in the 2014 U.S. News & World Report “Best National Universities Rankings.”
