Founded by missionaries of the Congregation of the Holy Spirit, Duquesne University is a private Catholic institution situated in Pittsburgh, PA. It is considered a research university with “high research activity” by the Carnegie Foundation. Duquesne University houses a natural gas turbine, an ice cooling system, and it was the first institution of higher learning in Pennsylvania to receive the EPA’s Energy Star Combined Heat and Power Award. Nursing, biology, and marketing are the top fields of study among undergraduate students.
Duquesne is a great school for respectable students that really want to learn and better themselves. Duquesne truly cares about improving people all around--mentally, emotionally, physically, and religiously. This is not just a campus where people go to get an education; it is a place where a family goes to improve individually and as a whole.

Duquesne University is the most challenging and amazing school I can imagine. It is everything I expected before coming into college. The social and academic life are both surreal.
