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.
Professors almost always know our name, because of the small class sizes. A good amount of people are serious about studying, but as with most colleges there is a group of people who are there for the parties. The History Department has amazing professors with great class option. The Political Science Department's professors aren't as great, but I had a ood experience in tat department. I worked on projects with professors outstide of class, and they were very good about communication outside of class. Duquesne's requirements are reasonable and provide a diverse education.
Duquesne is not wildly diverse. There are many Catholics, and not many different races or religions. Duquesne is more politically conservative than I would say other universities. Many students dress up everyday, and it is often regarded as a fashion show. If you are not in a clique, forget it. People are not open to new friends. Most students are from Pittsbugh or Cleveland, and many students come to Duquesne with their high school friends. Most are upper middle class or wealthy.
