By far the greatest freshman dormitory at Boston College, located on the beautiful Newton Campus in Newton, MA. It has two wings: East and West, with a study lounge in the basement for quiet study and plenty of green lawn for outdoor activities in the spring. It is just down the hill from the Newton Campus dining hall, Stuart Building. It is affectionately referred to as
"the Duche", although this term has been banned by current Residential Dean, Mannuel Vasquez.
"Hey you go to BC? What dorm hall are you living in?"
"I'm living in Duchesne"
"No way! I lived on Duche West freshman year, those guys know how to have a good time!"
