This horrible school is full of rich locals that are mean to anyone outside of their clique. terrible food, terrible housing, terrible people.
Duquesne has grown in population significantly but Greek life has not changed. Frats take whoever and they all seem to find their place. Sororities are incredibly limited and take their members based on who they already know and party with. Unfair rushing, and some still haze despite how hard they deny it (aphi & dz mostly). The limited space and preferential bids have made every sorority into a high school clique. Disgusting to be a part of, but you won’t have a social life at duquesne without it. Do NOT recommend duquesne to anyone.
if u want any social life at this school you have to go greek
If you arenâ€™t a part of Greek life you will be MISERABLE at this school. Do NOT go here unless you intend on joining.
Things are getting rough at Duquesne.
The â€œeliteâ€ (leaders) of Greek Life will paint the picture that itâ€™s absolutely perfect and amazing.
The realist will say itâ€™s generally good but has room to work.
Others will say it ruined their life.
On any given day Duquesne Greek life can fit into any of these categories.
Greek Life has brought me such amazing opportunities and my awesome sisters. Can't ask for much more than that!
So sad my time is coming to an end. Greek Life has meant so much to me and truly impacted my college experience in the best way. My advice is to stop listening to the rumors and encouraging rumors! Instead enjoy time with your brothers/sisters. And branch out and make friends in other Greek organizations. Thank you so much Greek Life!
Though not a massive Greek Life body compared to other schools, GL is expanding across campus! Even without Greek houses, there are plenty of opportunities to socialize with organizations in off campus houses while also enjoying the wings you get to share with your sisters or brothers. Duquesne is a pretty average school in terms of looks, but there are so many beautiful women and hot guys in GL. Obviously DU Greek Life has more girls considering Duquesne has more girls than boys in general. Contradictory to popular belief, hazing isn't that big of an issue. Yes, an incident or two pops up every once in awhile. But it's less of the crazy stories in the news like drinking until you pass out or swallowing a gold fish and instead more like a scavenger hunt or introducing yourself to the most amount of Greek students. Recruitment isn't as harsh as we make it out to seem too. Most women are placed in a sorority. Most exceptions are due to GPA or if a freshman doesn't get their #1 they just give up trying.
