What is your overall opinion of this school?

Great learning facility for any medical professions. In the heart of Pittsburgh with access to the best hospital and teaching facilities in the country. Easy access to the cultural district and sporting events. Diverse campus with students attending from all over the world. Many organizations and clubs to join or you can organize one yourself. Class sizes are small with a more one on one with professors and teaching staff. Duquesne is rich in culture and heritage.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have loved my time thus far at Duquesne. Pittsburgh is a great location to attend school because of the exciting sports atmosphere, availability of shops and food, and wide variety of cultural experiences. Everyone in the city and on campus is extremely friendly and willing to lend a hand. There are plenty of sports, organizations, clubs, etc. to join and find your niche. The professors really care about the students and that they are well prepared for their future careers.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The entire campus is absolutely amazing. I chose this university to complete my education because of the amazing home feel that I got as soon as I walked in. The people were polite everywhere I went, the campus was extremely clean, and their support system for all students amazed me. They offer so much to ensure the success of every student enrolled.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it! It's the perfect balance between partying and academics. The professors are very knowledgable and willing to meet outside of the classroom and the university itself is well known and respected. There are many opportunities for internships and career oriented activities. The school is right in the city but feels like a park when walking around it which I love! There is always something to do, something to see, and plenty of amazing restaurants to enjoy! Pitt and Point Park are also within walking distance so there is a good amount of students within the same age group as you. As for the dorms and facilities, they are well kept and cleaned well. The dorms are spacious and the bathrooms are communal but have separate showering areas to maintain the privacy. The food is good and there are many options. There is a main dining hall, a smaller one with "make your own" selections, Chick Fila, and Chipotle, etc within walking distance. Sports are not a huge thing like at Ohio State or Penn State but they are still present and students still attend the games. For students not looking to watch, intermurals throughout the recreational center are also available in addition to a three story gym with classes and basketball courts. Some classes include HIT and spin lead by licensed instructors and sure to give you a great workout! Overall, Duquesne is a great school that is well kept and promises career success. The beauty and strength of the campus are strong attributes.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Everyone that I know is transferring after one semester. I don't blame them. Duquesne is known to be such a "great school" when in reality, I am always in a horrible mood when I am here. Everything is so unorganized. The students here are some of the worst people I have ever met. The dorm rooms are so small and the food is not good. Teachers care, but that is pretty much it. The school is really bad at advertising extracurricular​ activities, so I haven't participated in one yet. I want to transfer, but I feel trapped because if I leave, I lose all of my scholarships from Duquesne and can't afford to pay full price. Do yourself a favor and don't make the same mistake I did.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really like the classes, but would not recommend to people who want a big college. There is almost nothing to do on or near campus on weekends and parties are in the surrounding area but usually a short Uber away. Great for people who aren't interested in a crazy party life, but that life is still possible

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am highly disappointed in the program. It is known for its great reputation, but I am not sure why. The professors are more worried about their research than the students. You're in charge of teaching yourself most of the material, and most professors read straight from their slides in class. Very disappointed in my personal experiences.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the school, great access to all of Pittsburgh, Always something to do. Academics are tough, however, employers love degrees from Duquesne. Faculty is overall great. They are usually available a large portion of the week, but that varies. I would recommend Duquesne to a friend any day, but if they hate cold windy weather, i might advise against.
