Duquesne University Sets Fall Open House for Sunday
Duquesne University’s Fall Open House, a long-standing tradition, offers high school students and their families a chance to learn first-hand about academic programs, recreational offerings and living arrangements at Duquesne. During the event, school deans will deliver presentations on academics and careers, while displays, tents and tables, staffed with representatives ready to explain all the campus and University have to offer will line Academic Walk.
After breakfast, guests can explore campus with the aid of a self-guided tour map or meet representatives from the schools. Scheduled presentations on financial aid and the majors offered at Duquesne are combined with ample opportunity for questions.
