The fall semester of my freshman year was very exciting. I was experiencing a new school, new people, being away from home for the first time, and beginning a new chapter in life. Duquesne was very welcoming and it actually felt like home. There was plenty to do with the freshman orientation activities and the staff who were in charge were very helpful. My first year here helped me with life strategies such as prioritizing and time management. I thought it would be a little intimidating coming into a new surrounding, but with all the friendly people and Duquesne’s welcoming campus, it took my mind off of the intimidation I thought I would be experiencing. Duquense is a great place to be, and after two years here, I am still very happy with my decision.
