Founded by missionaries of the Congregation of the Holy Spirit, Duquesne University is a 4-year Catholic institution in Pittsburgh and the only Spiritan university in the country. Duquesne is home to nine schools of study emphasizing the liberal arts and is considered a research university with “high research activity” by the Carnegie Foundation. To demonstrate a commitment to sustainability, Duquesne University houses a natural gas turbine, an ice cooling system, and was the first institution of higher learning in Pennsylvania to receive the EPA’s Energy Star Combined Heat and Power Award.
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.
