This school is unfortunately best known for attracting well off, upper middle class to high class people, as well as those who are only making it through on grants and loans. There is a lot of diversity, but in such a lot of disparity between the girls wearing the UGG boots and the girls who are coming from India to study and kids like me, who have little to no money to afford the expensive things most of them wear and feel a little left out.
I would say our school is best known for the fact that it is still so strict. The rules at Duquesne are regularly broken and laughed at by everyone whether they go to the school or not. Many of the rules and regulations that we have at the school are from when the school first opened and although administration knows the rules are broken and alot of them don't fit in with present day college experiences, they do not change them.
Our school is known for helping students become educated in both school and life. This school has helped students prepare for a career and just gain wisdom and knowlege for life. In my opinon, students that are both well rounded and wise make for the best candidates for jobs. Duquesne teaches responsibility, respect, perserverence, and wisdom along with giving students an education.
Duquesne University is best known for it's volunteer work. Those familiar with Duquesne know it has a spectacular reputation and takes pride in its heavy commitment to volunteer work. Unlike other schools, Duquesne promotes student involvement in the community; the work we do with others helps build our character.
My school is best known for its outstanding Pre-medical and Pharmacy programs and offering its students various research opportunities at an early stage in their educational career. It is also known for its amazing teaching staff who are very cooperative with their students offering them help whenever needed.
Duquesne University is best known for its academics, especially its pharmacy program, law school, and school of education. Companies from across the country come specifically to Duquesne a day before the Pittsburgh job fair to meet with Duquesne students.
Duquesne is best known for its commitment to excellence in liberal and professional education, through concern for moral and spiritual values through an atmosphere open to diversity and through sevice to the community, the nation, and the world.
It's nursing department is renowned in our area. Stemming from the catholic tradition of tending to the sick, it has a long tradition of training the most prepared and knowledgable nurses in the region.
I would say the slogan "Mind, Body and Spirit" through the Roman Catholic Religious affiliation. Duquesne even has a campus in Rome, Italy.
The school is best known for its pharmacy program. It is also the only Spiritan Campus in the world, I believe.
