    Duquesne's food and dining is delicous. They offer several different options and are continuing to expand. There newest addition Freshens has quickly become a student favorite. Instead of going into great detail about our food and dining I am going to attatch the schools link to campus dining: http://www.duq.edu/life-at-duquesne/dining They do it much more justice than I can.

    Duquesne recently signed a new contract with a new food provider, food is very good for a college atmosphere. Daily specials insure variety every day. Also numerous dining facilities allow you to change up where you eat every day.

    I would definitely recommend getting a meal plan, because without it, the food is very expensive. That being said, Duquesne just made a deal to bring in a brand new food company that offers a wide variety of foods. I personally am a vegetarian/vegan, and I have no trouble finding food that I can eat. There are also two Starbucks stores and a Subway on campus in addition to several dining halls.

    As far as food goes, it's pretty good. Our food is provided by Parkhurst and, if you are from around the area, you will know that it is the same company that provides for Eat n' Park. There are a lot of places to eat and they all have a huge variety of food.

    The food could taste a little better and have lower prices. However, there are many choices between the three different restaurants. I usually eat on campus around three or four times a week and am satiated with what I eat.

    Duquesne recently changed food service providers, so Parkhurst is trying to adjust and tweak things. Duquesne has 3 dining halls, one all-you-can-eat style. There is a campus market as well as a Coffee Tree Roasters and a Freshens. The food has improved greatly, but their prices are a bit ridiculous.

    Although I do not participate, many of my close friends are involved in Greek life. These aren't your normal sororities. They do volunteer work, are not cliquey, and go out of there way to be accepting.

    There are a good amount of fraternities and sororities on campus, as well as academically oriented and even ethnically oriented ones. From what I have heard, Greek Life on campus is a good bonding experience and provides great connections and relationships for people, both men and women.

    There are a large number of Greek life fraternities and sororities. They all seem to be very good and long standing parts of the Duquesne University tradition.

    At Duquesne, Greek Life is very popular. If you are a social person who likes to do group activities, Duquesne offers students plenty of groups to join.
