4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Duquesne is a great university. It's full of opportunities that can open doors for you socially, professionally, and personally. Like any college, it is what you make it. The resources are there, it is just a matter of taking advantage of everything they have to offer.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I'm transferring to a new school after two years. Not terrible, but also not the best experience.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I play soccer for the women's team at Duquesne and joined the track team at the end of my sophomore year. Being on two different teams has definitely given me a lot to do and a lot of friends. The dorms aren't the greatest and are very strict with overnight guests visiting which can be a nuisance. The dorms are a good way to make new friends though because there's not a whole lot of school spirit or community which makes it hard to meet people sometimes.The school is very good and very serious with studies. There are lots of tutors and help available through professors and other outlets. The school is very unique, located directly in the city but it still has its own type of campus feel. UPMC Mercy is right next door in case of an emergency. South Side is an easy walk or drive or bus ride (whatever your preference or budget) and is the hub of activity, especially night life. I have never felt unsafe on campus late at night or any other time of day and DuPo (Duquesne Police) are usually always around whether walking or driving. I chose Duquesne mainly because I got a small scholarship for soccer and academics, plus admission directly into the 6-year PT program. Even with the scholarships though, the school is crazy expensive and I struggle to pay every year. I may not choose Duquesne if I could do it all over again mainly because of the price and the lack of school spirit and pride with students wanting to get involved.

Overall Experience: I absolutely love Duquesne. I would not pick a different school if I could. I wish parking was not so much for commuter students and I wish the prices of food and selections of food were different. We don't have much of a selection and it is pretty expensive

Party Scene: The party scene in south side is part of the student experience

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There are plenty of options off-campus

3 College Senior

Administration: Everyone must be signed in to dorms

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Several options at a very reasonable price.

2 College Senior

Campus Food: There are not many food options. I only could ever find certain foods that I enjoyed eating and had to resort to eating the same thing sometimes several nights in a row. When at school I never ate a very balanced diet.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: If you apply for financial aid at my school you will most likely receive some. The process is quite difficult and must be completed every year. I received a whole packet of scholarship information from my financial aid office that said I "scholarships I am qualified to apply for". However, I was only actually qualified to apply for one of the 30 potential scholarships. It is very important to go into the financial aid office and talk to them, this is the best way to get their assistance.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: I enjoyed living on campus because of its proximity to my classes and other parts of campus. I also loved living in the dorms because all my friends were in the same hallway as me. Living in the dorms I was able to spend time with my friends whenever I wanted. The worst part about living on campus is the cost. There always seemed to be an unexpected fee with room and board. Living off campus, although much more inconvenient, is almost half the price as living on campus.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: It's a lovely city and great to have privacy.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I grew up in a small town with limited options so everything is better here!

3 College Junior

Scholarships: I haven't had much direction for a Second Degree BSN but I am slowly finding help.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Ok teams but no school spirit

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Basically you can get anything you want

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: It's great if you know the right people
