4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Duquesne University is a very safe and secure campus. The crime rate on campus is low, and personal safety is a top priority for faculty and students. Safety services are great, and Duquesne even has their own police force on campus. I feel very safe on campus and do not worry about any sort of crime or threat.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Overall the professors at Duquesne Univerisity are very good, and the courses are very challenging. Tutors and other forms of help are available, which make it easier to learn when professors aren't explaining at a clear enough level. There is a wide variety of courses available, and class sizes are usually reasonably small.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Duquesne University provides phenomenal education and sets students up for success. There is a large, high quality alumni network, and the quality of employers recruiting on campus is upmost. Career services at Duquesne University are also extremely helpful.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is reasonable. The dorms are rather small, like most colleges; however, I feel the cost of living on campus is rather high due to the dorms provided.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life at Duquesne University is not huge, but it is definitely clearly present. I don't feel Greek life affects the social atmosphere of campus very much unless events are being thrown due to Greek life. Non-Greek students seem to be indifferent toward Greek students for the most part. In most instances, one student would be unable to tell if another is affiliated with Greek life at all without asking to find out. Duquesne University does not provide separate housing for Greek life; however, they will allow a chapter of Greek life to all live together on the same floor of one of the resident halls.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletics at Duquesne University are great. Many students are involved with varsity sports and the majority of other students participate in intramurals. The athletes perform extremely well and work together as a team well too. There are many fans that support the sports teams, and Duquesne University has great school spirit. The athletic facilities provided for athletes and non-athletes alike are also very nice.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I like Duquesne University a lot because it is a reasonably small school where the students are not merely numbers. I feel that the professors genuinely care about their students and want to see them succeed. Duquesne University challenges me on a daily basis, which does result in a ton of work and stress, but I know it will all be worth it in the end. I am more than confident that I will be successful after receiving my degree from Duquesne University, and I believe I will easily get a job in the field I am studying.
