Over 600 parents, freshmen and University administrators and staff were on hand to celebrate the 24th Annual Director’s Circle.  Over 525 freshmen students were inducted into the Director’s Circle, a Student Life Program which honors freshmen who earn a 3.5 or greater in their first semester.

Featured speaker Fr. Sean Hogan, executive vice president for student life, congratulated the students, their families and the University community for this accomplishment.

Student speakers, freshmen, Don Crawford and Colleen Yanarella, shared the secret to their successes during their freshmen year at Duquesne.

It was a very proud moment for the University community.  In the 24 years of the program, over 9,400 freshmen students have been honored in the Director’s Circle.
