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 biology department is ok. There are not a lot of classes offered and so you will not get to take all of the classes that you want to take and there are only a few professors so if you do not like a professor more and likely you will have them again. Students are competitive. Class participation is required for core classes but for the biology classes most do not make class attendance a requirement. Duquesne is not very helpful and helping you get a job when you are done and it is very hard to get a professor to write a letter of recommendation in a timely manner.
Duquesne is mostly rich white students. They come from very wealthy backgrounds. The girls dress up for class in skirts and hills. They have their hair done. Boys also try to look good for school.

The Worst Things
The teachers do not seem to care about you and talk down to you.
