Health & Safety: I don't pay attention to it, but campus and the city is a pretty safe environment. Greeks don't take sexual assaults seriously.

1 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Most Greeks are hypocritical, have little respect for themselves, other people, and especially non-Greeks, and too many of them are self-entitled, snobby brats

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Duquesne has just about killed their varsity sports scene. The administration does not care.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Cheap considering no one would want to live on campus

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Good work. We don't starve

College Sophomore

Party Scene: I struggle to find parties. Duquesne, most due to Fr. Hogan, has a very poor view of Greek Life.

2 College Sophomore

Administration: The administration can't seem to get out of its own way. What they value as important and what a majority of the student body and increasing number of people in the country find important or needs to be changed or on very different ends of the spectrum.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is a HUGE DEAL at Duquesne. They always have tons of events going on throughout campus, which makes the atmosphere nice. The only downfall of Greek Life is that you feel as though you aren't worthy of anything if you make the choice not to join a sorority or fraternity.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Most off-campus dwellers of Duquesne live in the South Side, which is great for those who like the bar and party scene. You have so much more freedom than you do living on campus, and you feel like a real adult for once! You can buy a pass for the Southside shuttle for $100 a semester, and it comes every 20 minutes or so. Although the Southside hasn't been known for being the safest, I have never felt in danger. As long as you lease with two to three roommates, the cost isn't terrible for being in Pittsburgh. Parking in the southside is terrible, but doable.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: At the center of Pittsburgh, Duquesne's off-campus dining opportunities are endless! It's fantastic. There are great places to get breakfast, lunch, and dinner! Even the late night food is amazing. A+++ for Duquesne's off-campus dining.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Duquesne's parties are decent, but you won't find any on campus because of the very strict rules. Most of Duquesne's parties are in the South side and involve fraternities or sports teams. The bigger, better parties are in Oakland or Pitt's fraternities, although Greek Row at Pitt has been pretty dead the past few years due to a new, more strict dean. Oakland parties are fun, but difficult to get back to if you're taking the loop bus. The loop bus can take FOREVER. South side parties aren't as good as Oakland ones in my opinion.

2 College Freshman

Administration: If you live on campus, prepare for an extremely hard time when it comes to strict authorities. Although campus police normally don't get involved, the RA's and RD's are terrible when it comes to alcohol, noise complaints, and visitation. I wouldn't recommend having more than four or five people in the dorm while drinking because the RA's WILL catch you while doing rounds. As for visitation in freshman dorms, especially St. Ann's, getting anybody of the opposite sex into your dorm is such a hassle. And they are unable to stay the night, which is a pretty ridiculous rule.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Although I did apply for financial aid, I don't feel as though I got the financial aid that I needed. Duquesne does give me a yearly $10,000 scholarship, but it is quite a bit less than other schools offered me, and it is DEFINITELY not enough to make up for all the tuition/room and board that I am paying for!
