What Students Are Saying

3.70 Average Rating
Duquesne University is a well rounded and dedicated establishment. Faculty to Student Ratio is 14:1 and students have more opportunities to succeed. While the university is pricy... it is defiantly worth every penny for it's investment into students and higher education.

I love everything about Duquesne. The music school is an excellent environment: helpful and encouraging; the campus is very easy to maneuver and it is secluded so I love that as well. I really feel like I fit in and chose the right school just for me.
