You have bigger academic goals. You want a place where you can drive toward bigger personal goals as well.
A Meaningful Place
Your environment matters, and our students create a place where you can form friendships,
try new things, test yourself and expand your personal horizons—beyond what you do
for your classes.
We're all learning together, so it's important to balance the excitement and demands of classes with experiences that help you grow as a person.
Whether you join a student organization, work out at the Power Center, get one-on-one
tutoring for challenging courses, or use the Center for Career Development for job
hunting, the more you participate, the more you'll get out of your time here.
Life at Duquesne is designed to help prepare you for anything, professionally, personally, and beyond.
We'll get to know you as you get to know yourself.
