Our official matriculation ceremony serves as your formal welcome to the Duquesne family and the beginning of our orientation week! 

For Students

Throughout our orientation program, you will experience a number of different events and programs specifically designed to make sure your first week on campus is fulfilling and memorable. Our tentative student schedule outlines some of the events you should expect to attend, such as our matriculation ceremony, tours of Pittsburgh, lunches with your deans, and the Graffiti Dance! Please note that a few of our events are listed as mandatory in the schedule, and attendance at those events will be monitored and enforced by various offices on campus. We encourage you, however, to attend as many events as possible as more participation will introduce you to more of you fellow peers and greater opportunities to earn and spend your burgh bucks!
