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.
