Duquesne’s Net Impact has advanced to the finals in a national competition to raise awareness about the national debt and we’re only a few pledges shy of national recognition and prize money.   

 
There is still time to sign the pledge.  Go here and keep Duquesne at the top of the leaderboard!
 
Last week, Duquesne MBA students kicked off our “TacoBoutDebt” campaign with free tacos for students who signed the pledge.  Many students were surprised by the debt per person of $56,600, that all of us have inherited.  As one student remarked, “If this is the financial situation of our country, are we still the greatest nation in the world?”
 
Congratulations to Jamie, Peter, Jacob, Dan and Nayan on a great event!
