Orientation 2013 “Branch Out!” successfully began the school year on an enthusiastic note. With many of the events and speeches reaching to the use of the encouraging theme, students both new to Duquesne as well as on the Orientation staff found themselves excited to begin the year and do some branching out of their own. The Orientation staff hopes to see a steady increase in the involvement in organizations and clubs on campus, as this year’s program introduced a new session to the week: The Student Life Overview. This addition gave new students the opportunity to get the inside scoop on what the organizations on campus have to offer.
