How do you spot a Duquesne student?

They're the ones studying hard, obviously.

But it’s more than that. They’re thinking critically and sharpening their minds on real-world challenges. Nurturing the sense of right and wrong. And leading lives with honesty and integrity.

These are the hallmarks of a Duquesne education, and they lay the intellectual and ethical foundation students need to succeed and grow as individuals throughout life.

Students can build on this education by working closely with professors, being a part of research with real-world impact and doing internships to help launch careers after college. At Duquesne, you’ll get the chance to do more as a student than you ever thought possible.

Because the real value of a Duquesne education is how well it prepares you to grow throughout a lifetime of success.
