3 College Freshman

Scholarships: it is difficult to be rewarded more financial aid and scholarships than you are rewarded with at first.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: Overall Duquesnes landscaping and the features of the campus are beautiful and attracted me to the campus

College Freshman

Majors: my rating for internships would not be accurate because i haven't had one yet, but i do know that duquesne helps students to find them

4 College Freshman

Majors: Biomedical engineering was a great choice as my major at duquesne. The program and its staff is brilliant.

3 College Freshman

Academics: There is a variety of majors offered at Duq

4 College Freshman

Academics: Choosing biomedical engineering at my school was one of the best decisions i could have made when i chose to study at duquesne.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I'm not really sure about the off-campus housing but I know that the students that decide to live off campus do love it, and they love being in the city.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The biomedical engineering program is one that will create history. It is risky to start a new program that the school hasn't offered before, but with the staff and students ,it will be a successful one.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Being at Duquesne, students receive the "college experience" that many look for when entering the university.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are not bad. From Freshman year to senior year, the dorm you are assigned can only get better.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are many different restaurants and cafes when you are primarily in the city.

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: I'd imagine that the nightlife is one of the greatest because there are two college within the area. Pittsburgh is not only a city with tons to do, but there also many college students. This makes nightlife a lot better.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The dining halls are clean and provide with stable and delicious meals throughout the day. The flex dollars also come in handy when you are looking to dine outside of the dining hall.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: As an incoming freshman, I am unsure about the safety and security that currently remains on campus

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Pittsburgh is a very diverse city, with many different activities and people.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Most off-campus housing is in the South Side, which can be expensive and hard to find. Duquesne is also accepting too many students and not enough on-campus housing is available, forcing upperclassmen to find other living arrangements.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: I switched programs and the process was confusing at first but very simple, and most requirements are general.

College Sophomore

Majors: I have not participated in an internship thus far.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Not many attractive guys are on campus, but the campus does have a higher percentage of girls.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The professors are very good at Duquesne and the workload is manageable, and many study areas are available.

College Sophomore

Academics: I do not have a major yet but from hearing from other students, some teachers are flexible while others are very strict with grading and assignments.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Nightlife depends on the group of friends you have and connections as well as access to a location and alcohol.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Student involvement isn't huge in the sporting events and school spirit is lacking.

1 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Financial aid comes mostly in the form of loans. Few or no grants are given by the school and scholarships are based on academics.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The dining hall could have better hours, but other options are available. The campus market, while overpriced, is very convenient and allows meal swipes to be used as payment. More meal swipe options should be available rather than using flex.
