Duquesne University is Ready for Freshman Move-In Day

More than 1,550 students-one of Duquesne University's largest incoming classes-will arrive on campus next week for Freshman Move-In and Orientation.

Duquesne University President Ken Gormley and his wife, Laura, will be on hand to greet students and their parents as the members of the Class of 2021 settle in their residence halls and get acclimated to campus.

To continue the University's tradition of a smooth Move-In process, new students and their families' respective arrival times are scheduled based on the location of their residence hall. In addition, Duquesne volunteers and staff distribute free bottles of water during Move-In and the University provides lunch and dinner at a large tent near the residence halls.

Freshman Move-In launches Duquesne's award-winning, student-run Orientation program, which focuses on the theme The Common Thread this year and runs through Sunday, Aug. 20.

Duquesne University classes begin on Monday, Aug. 21.

Tuesday, Aug. 15, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Duquesne University, 600 Forbes Ave., Pittsburgh.
