What is your overall opinion of this school?

Duquesne university provides selective specialized programs. A lot of students who attend are part of these programs rather than general majors. The food has been increasing exponentially. Housing for freshmen is good but not amazing. gets a lot better the higher grade.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe that Duquesne is a very nice University, but there are some things that could be changed. For one the quality doesn't match the price, and the food is pretty nasty. Housing is way to expensive, and some of the staff around campus can be very rude. But the Professors are very helpful and want you to succeed. More of the college for academics not partying.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Duquesne university is an academically strong at University with many extracurricular activities available and with decent food and housing options. There is a decently large party scene and greek life involvement. Overall Duquesne university is a pricey school with strong academics and decent nonacademic opportunities.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a beautiful school with fantastic professors and faculty as well as facilities. That being said, there are a lot of preppy, not-as-intelligent kids who go here, not because of the fantastic academics, but just because their families can pay for it. So, for someone like me that came from humble beginnings and actually cares about her education, it can be hard to find relatable people, but I refuse to give up because I believe in making the best of an experience!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

In general, Duquesne University is a great college. Although it may be a rather pricey option for some, you certainly get your bang for the buck. Even though I write this review only being a first year student, I can tell you that my experience here has been amazing. The dining and housing services are great, there are tons of clubs for students to participate in, and the proximity to the rest of the city make this university an excellent choice.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I personally love it. I think it is the perfect size with the best Education program I have seen in Pennsylvania. I am very happy with my choice. It is its own little town with things going on, but right when you walk down the street you have the city of Pittsburgh at your fingertips! It is very safe and cozy and the people are so very friendly.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Wow, well I would certainly tell myself a lot of things. I would definitely tell myself to stay focused and get work finished early. I would also tell myself to apply for many scholarships. Lastly I would tell myself that going off to college will be the best but most challenging years of your life. The transition will be easy but the work load and trying to balance a real job with school is the most difficult part!

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

There is not enough diversity or school spirit. Its not an ideal college experience as far as sporting events go.
