Orientation: Wednesday, August 18-22, 2021

What Makes Our Orientation Special?

  1. Our program is developed for students by students. Our student staff is uniquely positioned to welcome you to the Duquesne family.
  2. Since we've been through the process ourselves, we know that starting college is a thrilling yet apprehensive time.
  3. 3. With this understanding, we have developed a program that fits the needs of our new students and will enable them to make the most of this next exciting chapter of their lives!

It is very important to the Duquesne experience that all freshman students participate in orientation-with necessary precautions-even if they have arrived on mass transit. Because orientation is highly structured, managed in small groups with social distancing practices, and with all participants wearing face coverings, every precaution is taken to be as safe as possible. Orientation features scheduled activities that run throughout the days and well into evenings. It will be the expectation for those who have used mass transit to otherwise quarantine outside of orientation activities.
