Southside is very close to Duquesne and it is very easy to walk there on the weekends, not to mention the Loop bus which can get you to and from the southside easily. There are many bars, but I don't know about cover prices, they vary greatly.

The dining isn't bad and it isn't good. There are some awesome food choices, and it's getting better, but it's a work in progress. The best food is in off ramp, and the worst food is the most accessible.

I was never part of greek life, but from what I can tell it's awesome if you're part of a fraternity or sorority, but doesn't really matter to anyone otherwise.

Guys & Girls:
The campus is full of stuck up girls, and artsy girls. There are two very opposite extremes and the guys are either jerks or gay.

The cost isn't terrible, but the necessity to rely on public transportation is rather frustrating. The bus trips take anywhere from 10- 60 minutes for short distances depending on traffic. The shuttle is great if you happen to live in the shuttles path, otherwise means nothing to you.

I never lived off campus to accurately answer the question

Pittsburgh is a cultural gem. The only problem I had with our location was that going grocery shopping was hard without having a car, and to have a car would cost a fortune for a parking pass that pretty much only guaranteed you "sometimes" parking.

The network was constantly slow and having problems and there is hardly any wifi. Connecting to the network was always fun, since you never knew if you would be able to submit any online homework or not.

My biggest problem with my school was that they seemed to be more concerned about science majors and less concerned about liberal arts. It was hard to get the same support. I probably would choose a school that was better geared towards my major if I were to apply all over again

The financial aid office was always very helpful. If any problems arose, they were quick to help me, and offered a great deal of support.

Ummm... what diversity? Although I love it here, I was almost in shock when I first arrived. I am I minority here (African American). I feel like I am very accepted though.There is no racial tension, everyone is friendly. If I were to bring up any diversity, it would be where everyone was from. People from all of the world come here. I have met people from Canada, Brazil, the Middle East, Australia, Great Britain, Cuba, Puerto Rico, Japan, all over America, etc.

The reason I moved to Pittsburgh was because of this. The atmosphere is amazing. The locals are very nice, and the surrounding colleges interact with us. The scenery is beautiful, and there was a lot of things to do here.

I've heard more people attend this year. The Red and Blue Crew (a sporting fan-based club) show up to many varsity games.

Health & Safety:
DuPo are always there. They don't really come up to you, unless it's obvious that you're trouble... like if you're passed out or throwing up infront of your dorm building. They're friendly, respectable people. They don't bother you unless you bother them. They kept the campus safe, and if you need a ride to the hospital or if you get lost, they will come pick you up.

St. Anns!!! Woot woot!! Alright, many may tell you to live in St. Martins... no. St. Anns is where it's at. It is a smaller community, and the rooms are bigger. The desk people are awesome, and so are the people. Many people argue about the boys and girls being separated by wings. Trust me, you can still hang out with the opposite sex after hours (12 on weekdays, 2 on the weekend). It's called the rec room. It's the first floor. It connects the boy's side and the girl's side. You could hang out with them there. It never closes. You could also hang out in the lobby, but many prefer the rec room. Anns isn't very strict. As long as you get along with your RA and don't do anything too stupid, you should be perfectly fine here.

WIFI... a student's worst nightmare during the first few weeks of school. Some can get it up and running, but many (Like me) had to go to CTS (Computer Tech Services). They helped me, and I was out of there within fifteen minutes. Others weren't so lucky.

Incoming Freshman and Transfer students.... you will quickly learn about Milanos and Wings over Pittsburgh. They are your late night options (Open until 2am), and they give huge student discounts.

I applied for FAFSA. I received enough scholarships to pay for more than half of my tuition from Duquesne. Then, FAFSA gave me the rest. Long story short, my school has been paid for (Thank God!!).The Financial Aid Office helped me out a lot. They were easy to communicate with, and they made the process easy for me.

Guys & Girls:
Hmmm. We're pretty hot here :) lol. The people great at this school. The guys are delicious. You have your jocks, preppy, nerdy (but still hot), nerdy (average), normal guys, frat guys, anything that you can name... we have it here. I have seen many relationships start here, so a relationship is possible (Long-term and short-term). The girls here are beautiful, and they're also nice. You could literally strike up a conversation with anyone here. I see a lot of Northface and Uggs in the winter, but that's not all that's here. Everyone has their own style.
P.S. (Girls) Be careful. There are some... players in disguise here. Just a warning.

Duquesne has been more than I had ever expected. I was skeptical about this school. A catholic private university? I thought it would be boring. I was wrong. I have met so many new people, new friends, and great teachers. Nightlife is great. Pittsburgh is wonderful. I absolutely love it here. Everyone is so friendly. Even though Duquesne wasn't my top choice, I'm so glad I came here.
College Student 2013-12-02T03:20:11Z
Oh nightlife... you have made this year awesome! There are so many places to go and things to do. There are southside parties, oakland parties, frat and soro parties, clubs for the underage college students on Thirsty Thursdays (Whim, SBar, Mexico City, etc.), Hookah Bars, etc. Yeah, it's pretty amazing here. If you know the right people, there is ALWAYS something to do.

Greek Life is definitely known on campus . They host a lot of events here. Although, you don't need to be in one to have fun. Non-greeks and greeks get along pretty well here.

Forensic Science and Law Master's Program is very challenging, but if you go to class and do your work... you'll be fine. It's a very interesting program. You graduate with a Bachelors in Biochemistry or Biology, a Minor in Math, and a Masters in Forensic Science and Law. It only takes 5 years to get these four degrees, and the last year is only Forensic Science classes.
College Student 2013-12-02T03:12:43Z
The academics here are amazing! They could be challenging, but that's the point of college. You're supposed to be challenged. Even though Duquesne wasn't my top choice, I'm glad I came here. I feel like this was the best choice for me.

Mainly, you'll see the typical high school stuff here. Marijuana and alcohol. You're not pressured to do anything here. These are the "social drugs". You don't have to do them, people just choose to. You won't be considered an outsider if you don't do them.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
