Duquesne University Reviews
Graduated in undergrad in May 2019. I had the best time making lifelong friends at Duq. Something that’s very unique is their study abroad programs. I did a Spring Break away course you take in spring then over spring break you do the study abroad portion. I have also did a May semester in Rome. It was awesome, a experience I’ll never forget!
Duquesne has changed my life! The career services center helped guide me to learn what I wanted to be, and then they found a job for me in that field at the school! My teachers are amazing and caring, and they really put forth more than what I've heard from other students about their professors at other schools.
Duquesne has quickly become my second home! It’s academics are amazing, the dorms are good, and the location is perfect. There are definitely cliques, which can be frustrating and it can be hard to make new friends, especially out of your major. Overall, I would not go anywhere other than Duquesne and I love everything it has brought me!
