Small Catholic school with many rich Catholic students

I think some people feel some kinda way about Duquesne because its a Catholic School, but you do not need to be a Catholic or even religious to come here. It is a normal school like any other non-Catholic school.

A common stereotype is that all Duquesne students are rich and "snobby." I have never really heard any bad things about the school itself (other than the high price being a private school and all) so I'm not sure if there are any stereotypes about the university.
