Freshman Advisement Summer Transition (FAST)

We hope you are enjoying the rest of your school year and preparing to join us on the Bluff in a few short months! FAST is an optional four day program to help you transition to your time as a student here at Duquesne. Each school has two days to pick from.

Formal invitations to FAST will be sent to your house in May and registration will take place in June. Parents are welcome to attend with their students, but it is no mandatory. If you are unable to make the FAST program due to prior commitments we will post materials on line after the week is over.

Please feel free to contact us with any remaining questions or concerns you may have.

Upcoming FAST Dates:

July 8 & 10: Pharmacy, Liberal Arts, Music, and Nursing

July 9 & 11: Business, Health Sciences, Natural & Environmental Sciences, Biomedical Engineering, and Education

Additional Important Dates:

August 19: Freshman Move In

August 20-24: New Student Orientation
