The Duquesne University Sophomore Class Council hosted its annual Welcome Back Class picnic on Sept. 4, 2013. Approximately 250 sophomore students attended the on campus event to reconnect with friends missed over the summer, and to make new friends. Additionally, the Class council purchased 250 tickets for the Pittsburgh Pirates baseball game on Saturday, Sept. 14. The students watched a great game followed by an awesome fireworks display. The Pirate’s welcomed the “Duquesne University Sophomore Class” during the middle of the 4th inning with a message on the center field Scoreboard.
Other events planned for the Fall semester include hosting the Annual Duquesne University Holiday Ice Skating Party at PPG Place with the inclusion of a campus wide Ginger Bread House making contest with proceeds to benefit the Children’s Hospital; participating in Homecoming and Family Weekend events; and participating in Service projects that benefit the community.
