The Duquesne experience is more than a few years of classrooms, labs and libraries. It is a transformational education for the mind, heart and spirit. We take our mission seriously, and strive to enhance every aspect of our students' lives. The costs of these amenities cannot be covered by tuition and fees alone. Donor support makes a full range of student services and activities possible.
Co-Curricular/Extracurricular Activities: Every undergraduate's journey begins with personal attention throughout the admissions process and an award-winning freshman orientation. Special services span the entire first year, resulting in high satisfaction and retention. Academic, social, spiritual and health-related programs are available to all students throughout their years on our Bluff. More than 100 activities and organizations allow students to hone professional skills, pursue personal passions, and build lifelong friendships. Athletic teams represent Duquesne with distinction.
Facilities: Over the past 50 years, Duquesne's campus has been transformed from a collection of row houses and garages into a beautiful, secluded community for academic life. Duquesne's ambitious master plan for campus development includes new academic, administrative, recreational and residential facilities, including innovative mixed-use development along the Forbes Avenue corridor serving students and revitalizing our surrounding neighborhood. Constant improvements to existing buildings and grounds ensure a more functional, more comfortable and safer atmosphere for all.
Community Outreach: As Duquesne serves God by serving students, they, in turn, reach out to those around them. Through service-learning programs and volunteer activities, Duquesne carries on the Spiritan charism of outreach to the poor and less fortunate-enriching students' lives while uplifting others. Support will ensure that all students have increased opportunities for these transformative experiences.
