Duquesne Named One of Nation’s Most Connected Campuses
For the second straight year, Duquesne is one of 25 colleges and universities across the country named to The Princeton Review’s “Most Connected Campuses" list.
The list, which has been compiled for three years, is a result of a Princeton Review survey to find the U.S. colleges and universities offering the most cutting-edge technology. Criteria include the breadth of the computer science curriculum; the sophistication of campus technology, including streaming media of classes and extracurricular offerings; availability of school-owned digital cameras and equipment for student use; wireless Internet access on campus; and support for handheld computing.
“We’re honored to be included among some of the most respected institutions in the country for our commitment to campus technology,” said Dr. Charles Dougherty, Duquesne University president.
To assemble the list, The Princeton Review collected responses to a survey on campus technology from colleges in its best-selling college guidebook, The Best 361 Colleges.
“The schools on our list have demonstrated leadership in preparing and supporting students for life in the digital age. Students who understand the value of technology to both their career prospects and overall quality of life will want to pay special attention the schools on our list,” said Rob Franek, vice president and publisher of The Princeton Review.
