Duquesne University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (5)
I was able to participate in undergraduate research and gain valuable experience working in a professors lab. The class sizes were small enough that my professors knew me by name.
Great school. Quality education.
I loved Duquesne's campus and location in downtown Pittsburgh. Class sizes were small so I could have a personal relationship with all of my professors and they knew me by name. I was able to take part in undergraduate research in a chemistry lab and receive a lot of hands on experience to prepare me for graduate school, as well as some publications. However, I felt that my chemistry classes did not fully prepare me for the level of graduate school classes (although I think they've redone their curriculum since then). I'm glad I chose Duquesne - it was a great experience for me.
The first three years are all background information and general electives so the classes can be pretty boring. Once you enter the professional phase the course load becomes much harder but also more interesting.
I loved attending Duquesne University! It is currently the top school in the state of PA for my specific major and continues to grow and evolve every year. The resources are up to date and you have access to 3 studios, 2 professional concert halls and 2 large apple computer labs. The Mary Pappert school of Music is also looking to add on over the next few years.
