Duquesne University has been a disappointment.Nursing
Duquesne University has been a disappointment. I expected the administration/Professors to act with integrity, they do not. The school of nursing's requires a 2.8 GPA, I have a GPA of 3.0. I was told I needed a 74% to pass on one of my finals. I believe I a earned better than the 7.38 they gave me, but, none-the- less, the told me I could not continue in their program. That was it, no other alternatives, no direction to help me continue in anyway from their so-called staff. I have friends at Duq Univ, that earned a D for their finals, and they are still in their programs. Where is the integrity of Duq Univ. Also, a fellow nursing student bragged she rarely came to class, did not attend the required clinicals, and she is passing. She even glouted about it to everyone. Duq Univ does not have any integrity nor shame.

The internet is absolutely atrocious at Duquesne.Quite BrightPharmacy
The internet is absolutely atrocious at Duquesne. It's remarkable that we pay tens of thousands of dollars a year and all that the university can provide to its students is, essentially, a "glorified dial up." The wifi goes in and out all the time and cannot support the University populace. Completing online assignments takes forever thanks to the terrible internet. So, if you ever wind up looking at Duquesne, please ask the admissions staff why they can't provide decent internet for their students.

I absolutely hated this place from the secondQuite BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
I absolutely hated this place from the second week. The students are self-absorbed and superficial. The professors simply do not care contrary to what the university proclaims. I was stuck at this university for a year and I could not wait to get out. My advice is to be 100% positive that this is where you want to go because if you are even slightly unsure then do not go. This is one of the worst decisions that I've ever made and I cannot believe that this place is so ungodly expensive.
