Students Say

Located on a “beautiful” campus near New Haven, Connecticut, Quinnipiac University is a liberal arts school that “wants every student to graduate with a well-rounded education.” The school “is about educating students in both their major and in general knowledge so they are prepared for life after college.” Though health science, business, and communications are the school’s most notable programs, the entire university “takes pride in its academics” and is “invested in preparing students for their potential career in the best way possible.” No matter your major, the school stresses that “the most important aspect is the student’s undergraduate experience on the journey of finding themselves.”

Since class sizes are so small, teachers “are able to engage with each student individually.” The professors at Quinnipiac “really look out for the students and want them to achieve.” Like at any college, “there are amazing professors and terrible professors,” but “looking up the reviews and trusting students’ opinions” will help you know which ones to pick. Professors all “encourage discussion and bring in real-life stories,” and “they are always enthusiastic to share their knowledge. They implement hands-on learning, too.” Students cite “the accessibility to meet with professors during their office hours” as a huge plus. “It is very easy to get in contact with them when needed,” says a student. “I have close bonds with several, and my academic experience has been nothing but enjoyable,” says another. As one student sums up, “Quinnipiac University is extremely dedicated to helping students make their college experience not only beneficial, but enjoyable as well.”

Students Say

The typical student here is a “middleto upper-class Caucasian from the tristate area” and “a little preppy, but casual at the same time.” “Students are easy to make friends with,” so “it’s easy to find a niche here.” “Students all seem to have a place, there are so many different groups that it’s hard not to find someplace for everyone,” says one. “I feel like it’s a good place to go if you want a balance between social life and school work,” says a student. This “studious” and “well-motivated” group is usually “involved in at least one program outside of academics,” but also “likes to enjoy themselves on weekends.” Though Quinnipiac “is not very diverse”, it “is becoming more diverse.” Many students are “very interested in fashion and culture.”

Overview

From The School


Location

Hamden, Connecticut: 8 miles north of New Haven, midway between Boston and New York City. Quinnipiac is a suburban campus with 600 acres on three sites. The Mount Carmel Campus is adjacent to Sleeping Giant State Park, with 1,700 acres of trails for hiking and walking. A picturesque setting provides an enjoyable academic and residential campus experience for students. A campus shuttle system provides easy access to theaters, shopping, museums, sports, recreation and a variety of dining and entertainment options in Hamden and New Haven. The nearby York Hill Campus is home to the TD Bank Sports Center with 3500-seat twin arenas for basketball and ice hockey, a lodge-like student/recreation center, plus new suite-style residence halls with single and double rooms, kitchens and common living areas, which accommodate 1500 students. The North Haven Campus, just 4 miles away, provides upper-level and graduate students in Health Sciences, Nursing, Education, Medicine, and Law with a state-of-the-art setting on 100 acres.

Students from 46 states and 61 countries study at Quinnipiac. Ninety-five percent of the incoming 1800 freshmen choose to live on campus. Housing options include traditional residence halls, suites, and suites with kitchens. Freshmen and sophomores generally live on the Mt. Carmel campus; juniors and seniors live on the York Hill campus and in university-owned houses.

Driving time to Quinnipiac from Boston or New York City is about two hours. Metro-North and Amtrak provide train service to New Haven's Union Station, which is 15 minutes from campus. Airline service is available through Bradley International Airport, about 40 minutes from campus, and through John F. Kennedy, Newark and LaGuardia airports serving the New York City area. Ground transportation is available from all airports to New Haven.

All programs at Quinnipiac offer an excellent combination of classroom learning with internships or clinical experiences. Students in business, engineering, communications, and liberal arts and sciences intern at nearby corporations, health care agencies, or media outlets. Students in health sciences and nursing are placed in clinical affiliations as part of their learning experience.

Career Services provides assistance with resume writing, interview skills and job placement. A survey of recent graduates indicated that close to 90 percent were either employed or in graduate school within six months of graduation. Each year about half of students in internships are offered permanent jobs as a result of their work.

Students can take advantage of study abroad opportunities during the academic year or summer months (3.0 cumulative GPA required.) Program sites include: Ireland, Australia, Austria, Czech Republic, England, France, Spain, Italy, Netherlands, Russia, South Africa, and Spain, to name a few, and through affiliates such as AIFS, API, and Semester at Sea. Study abroad is an experience of a lifetime allowing you to live in a different country for a period of time while earning credits at your home institution.

Campus Facilities & Equipment

Quinnipiac offers the latest campus and academic technology, which is reflected in its facilities, services and programs. The entire campus and residential areas offer a security-enhanced wireless network. All incoming students must bring or purchase a university-recommended laptop computer for use in the classroom and residence halls. Service is provided through technology centers on each campus.

Academic life focuses on the Bernhard Library, open 24 x 7 during the fall and spring semesters. Automated library systems, wireless technology, 60 public computers and 600 power/data connections are located throughout the library, along with individual study carrels and team study rooms.

The Learning Commons offers free academic tutoring as well as sessions to improve study techniques, writing skills and research methods. Quinnipiac's Writing Across the Curriculum program is designed to help students develop strong critical thinking and communication skills through writing. Essential Learning Outcomes (ELOs) have been identified that broaden students' knowledge and engage them in the educational process.

The University Honors Program fosters the needs and interests of our most academically talented and committed students. Service Learning courses integrate meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility and strengthen communities.

Off-Campus Opportunities

Quinnipiac is a suburban campus with easy access to nearby shopping, restaurants and activities offered in Hamden, New Haven and North Haven. Students, faculty and staff are involved in community service through the "Big Event" held each April. Local community service opportunities also include Habitat for Humanity and tutoring in the elementary schools.

Student Organizations & Activities

Quinnipiac University has more than 120 student clubs and organizations including student government, newspaper, yearbook, radio station, service organizations, community activities, religious fellowships, diversity awareness (Black Student Union, Latino Cultural Society, Asian and Pacific Islander Association), dance and drama productions, and Greek life, along with numerous recreation activities, providing a balanced college experience.

Students Say

Students at the school “value the closeness of our community and bringing everyone together,” according to a student. The campus is “just plain gorgeous” (“When I came to this school I got the ’wedding dress feeling,’” says a student.), and there’s a lot going on there, too. “Campus life is awesome!” There are “so many ways” of getting involved: “numerous clubs and activities, supporting the athletic teams, intramural sports, and much more.” The student body is “heavily devoted” to the subjects they are involved in, and everywhere you look “friendly faces” are taking advantage of the “very programmed schedule” of events. A “good majority of the students here like to party hard Thursday through Saturday night,” but if you don’t like to drink or go out, the programming board “does an excellent job providing events on campus such as casino night, drive-in movies, stand-up comics, games, etc.”

Despite the Quinnipiac love, there are some gripes. The living facilities “could stand to be updated,” “more onsite parking” is definitely needed, and everyone pretty much universally agrees that the “food could always be better.” However, people do love the duality of a “college-town feel with a city nearby,” and the shuttles that run into nearby New Haven are extremely popular. The “great sports teams” also help bring together the student body, and “on Friday nights, hockey and basketball are big.”
