Duquesne University Reviews
Move in for freshman is earlier than most schools, but that's because they dedicate a whole week to orientation. Orientation is super fun and allows you to get comfortable with the school environment and the people. It will feel like home by the end of that week, and you'll feel at least a little ready for the first day of classes. I've been here for a week now, and I know already that i chose the right school! I chose this school for its reputation in nursing. In addition to its great reputation, the food is great(lots of options too), bathrooms are clean, showers/sinks arent crowded, people are generally approachable and pleasant(although i can sniff the fakeness of some from a mile away), and the campus/city is very attractive and admirable. My professors are also pretty nice and very qualified.
I have only been here for a few days but overall the college is great. The orientation staff has put in a lot of hard work, time and dedication to ensure that the incoming freshman class has events to be involved in to help them get acclimated with the campus and college life. My academic advisor has also been extremely helpful. Overall, my short time here has been outstanding!
Duquesne University thrives in academics and a multitude of opportunities available for each student. The safety, at some times extreme allows for a small campus in a large city to feel very protected. The food could use improvement, but offers a wide variety in options for college dining, and accomodates for most all allergies and diets. There is a lack in club sport activities, which may involve more students. The Power Center is an excellent resource, as well as the Barnes and Noble Bookstore on campus. Duquesne provides a great education with qualified and knowledgeable professors. The campus is almost picture perfect and makes the transition into college very fluent.
