alot of students complain about parking. Duq. is an inner city school (although you would never know it because most of the campus is green). But parking is limited and the Duq. police don't hesitate to give out tickets. Duq. is a smaller cozy campus. It's nice to walk down the sidewalk and see so many people you know and recognize.
I don't think many people think about Duquesne because of the other bigger schools around (Pitt) but it is a perfect size, not too big not too small and you have all of Pittsburgh at your hands. There is really no school pride especially when it comes to sports. Even though it is a DI school.
The school size is nice. You get to know your teachers and they get to know you. It is nice because it is in the city and there are a lot of things to do nearby. The administration sucks. The student accounts office is the worst. They always mess up your account and put holds on your account and they never manage to fix things. There is a lot of school pride mostly because of the frats and sororities.
The professors are by and large extremely helpful. I enjoyed the small class sizes, as well as the course content. It is extremely cliquey, and it lacks the social atmosphere of a larger school. People think it is ritzy and expensive, and they are correct. School spirit it minimal. I would say students mostly complain about housing and the price of parking. The dorms leave a lot to be desired.
Duquesne is a nice little school in downtown Pittsburgh. The area surrounding Duquesne is pretty shady, so you shouldn't be walking around much.
