Overall Rating

Duquesne University is not a bad school by any means. I have no real complaints about the academic side of the university. However, Duquesne falls short when it comes to student life. Dining and student accommodations are less than ideal. Don't expect to have heat for the first frigid day of the season. A warm shower with decent water pressure is also a rarity. Many students I met during my first year did not know that Duquesne students are required to do service work. Liberal Arts students have a service learning program built into their curriculum. Others are on their own. This can be difficult when work schedules and lack of transportation become factors. Duquesne is a good school, but I don't believe I would be any worse off if I had made the decision to go to the nearby University of Pittsburgh instead.

Overall Rating

The location is great, minutes from downtown and south side and a short bus trip away from oakland. The size of the school is great, not too huge but not extremely small. The material you learn is hard, however, you know you're getting your moneys worth for a great education.
