Duquesne University’s DuquesneFest 2013
Duquesne University recently hosted their annual event, "DuquesneFest" for prospective students on Sunday, June 9th with over 2,000 high school students and their families in attendance. Many of the students who just finished their junior year of high school will enroll as college freshmen in Fall 2014.
The event is a well-organized and dynamic information session, which highlights each school's unique features and programs. All along Academic Walkway, tables are set-up with information ranging from financial aid and admissions processes to Residence Life, Campus Ministries, Student Activities, ROTC and more. Pharmacy's Admissions Counselor, Alana Harteis, was present to provide informal, personal discussions with prospective students. Additionally, campus tours were offered, as well as individual school presentations in the University's Power Center.
Dr. Thomas Mattei, Associate Dean, and Scott Copley, Director of Admissions and Data Management for the Mylan School of Pharmacy, addressed those in attendance who were interested in the pharmacy program.
According to Copley, "We were tremendously impressed with how many highly motivated students attended the event. Students and their parents asked insightful questions about the profession of pharmacy as well as Duquesne University."
