Hey hey! I'm Anne. I'm a senior Secondary Ed - Social Studies major and I love orientation with my whole heart and soul!!! Additionally, I'm an avid fan of SEC football, Jimmy Buffett and desserts! I cannot wait to meet y'all and welcome you into the best university in the world! Throughout the week I'll be the one sitting on the floor with a monster (or two) in my hand so come up and say hi!! Enjoy your last few weeks of summer and come ready to have the best 4 years of your life!
WELCOME TO DUQUESNE!!! Hi, my name is Mary Michelsen and I am a junior Occupational Therapy major. Duquesne truly has become a second home to me over the past couple of years, and I couldn't be more thrilled to help share that experience with you so soon! Two things that you should keep in mind throughout orientation and your college experience is to be open-minded and yourself. Take up every opportunity that you wish, and do not let other people's opinions influence what you want to do. This is your college experience and you should do everything that YOU want to do. I cannot wait for you to have your college journey be here at Duquesne and to make memories that will last a lifetime.
And here we go! My name is Zachary DeJames, but I prefer to be called Zac. I am junior Pharmacy Major and also play hockey at Duquesne. I'm extremely excited to welcome you into the Duquesne Family. I am from the Pittsburgh area and a fan of all things socks, hockey, and cheese (all forms: grilled, mac and even sliced). During this great week, you can find me in my creative socks and awesome hats. During the school year, however, I'll be rocking dem sweats doe. If you need anything throughout the week or year, don't hesitate to ask me for help. Once again, welcome to the squad and remember to always be a beaut!
