What Makes Our Orientation Special?


As a student run program, developed for students by students, Orientation at Duquesne is uniquely positioned to welcome the newest members of our university to the Duquesne family. 

Since we've been through the process ourselves, we know that starting college is a thrilling yet apprehensive time.

With this understanding, we have developed a program that fits the needs of our new students and will enable them to make the most of this next exciting chapter of their lives.
