4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: The guys are attractive but not very nice. The girls are attractive but some are stuck-up.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Even though the school is Catholic, that doesn't mean that the students aren't outgoing, regular teenagers who like everything from football games to parties. One good thing is that all the superficiality of high school is gone. Anyone will befriend you if you just sit down and say hi. Your phone is your best resource. Get people's numbers and go get lunch sometime.

5 College Student

Guys & Girls: The girls are very preppy however very down to earth and love going out.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The university has some strong arts programs and some strong athletic programs, so there is variety of your "stereotypical" students.

3 Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: The campus is full of stuck up girls, and artsy girls. There are two very opposite extremes and the guys are either jerks or gay.

The popular opinion on the quality of Duquesne's guys and girls can be summed up in three words: they're high quality. When asked, most students will simply reply, "Duquesne is hot!" On the same note, many students from other colleges or universities who visit a friend here also express amazement at the overabundance of good-looking guys and girls. This is not an exaggeration and is probably the most doted upon quality of Duquesne.

In reality, there is a wide mix of students. Duquesne boasts an abundance of attractive students with a good sense of fashion. One also notices a variety of personalities on campus, as well, from the sexually promiscuous, to the timid and cautious. In addition, one can also observe the typical mix of athletes, the academic-minded, and of course the "average Joes" or "Janes." However, unlike in most high school experiences, book smarts are greatly respected and admired at Duquesne. As covered in the next section, Duquesne is not sports centered. This is a seldom mentioned fact, and it's a point which many overlook when talking about the quality of the students here on campus.

Social Scene
Most Duquesne students are outgoing and actively seek out friends and good times. Freshmen take pains to seek out parties, and these pursuits tend to continue through each successive year of the student's education. If one wants privacy on campus, one can find it easily. However, the dorms can get noisy, even past quiet hours. There is little to no peer pressure involving drugs or alcohol.
Hookups or Relationships?
Considering the size of the student body, a wide variety of relationships exists on campus. The possibility of hookups or relationships really depends on the age and grade level of the student. Hookups dominate the freshman social scene and are common even past graduation, with more long-term relationships forming throughout the later years of college.
Best Places to Meet Guys/Girls
Most freshmen will make friends of both sexes either in the dorms or in class. Hanging out in front of the dorms late into the night during the nicer months has become a popular trend among the freshmen. One can easily meet new people in front of the dorms on any given night of the week. Parties on the South Side, Oakland, and even in the dorms are popular places to meet and greet new acquaintances. Most freshmen choose to take part in orientation, and many long-lasting friendships can develop during those first few days of a student's college experience
Dress Code
To predict what the fashion will be on campus for a large majority of students, simply visit your local Abercrombie & Fitch, American Eagle, or Express. Stores like these are favorite shopping spots for Duquesne's students.
