4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Often the building had cold water only or the air conditioning or heater would be broken. Rooms are what you would expect in a college dorm. Cleaning services are very appreciated. The overnight guest/opposite sex rules are strictly enforced and a pain in the butt, but you can get around them if you're careful.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am not a part of Greek life. However, my roommate and some friends are. They do a few service activities and are mainly just expensive ways to make friends and go to parties.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I don't have much experience using the sports equipment or fields or anything. But the gyms, I've heard, are very nice and many people utilize them.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Not worth the tuition cost. However, I have mostly good experiences overall. Classes were not impossibly difficult and I have made a lot of friends, and there are so many opportunities for clubs and activities.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletics at Duquesne University play into the every day lives of the students who live on campus. Varsity games are broadcasted and attending the games are always a huge deal because those in charge of the events make them as fun as possible for those attending. Students and the families of students get involved in the games because there is always a great deal of school spirit.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My overall experience attending Duquesne University could be explained as the best because I have received the education that I've expected from this university and enjoyed myself while doing so. I believe the community that Duquesne University offers is comfortable and allows room to grow in my knowledge and my faith. I would choose Duquesne over any school because the education that I have received will help me in the long run as I am searching for jobs and I do believe they have prepared me the best although I will only be entering my sophomore year.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The school itself is fairly small, with only about 3200 undergrads, but there are plenty of courses for everyone to find something they like and the professors profoundly care about their students' success.
