What are the most popular student activities/groups?
Some of the most popular groups on campus are the men's hockey team, men's baseball team, fraternities, sororities, and student government. I'm a member of Dance Fusion, Quinnipiac's hip-hop dance team. The group of about 25 girls performs at basketball games, campus events, and local competitions. Students in freshman doors typically leave their doors open, but as you leave freshman year doors tend to be closed more often. Hockey games attract a large group, as do some other sports events. Depending on the guest speaker and the topic these events may attract a decent size group. I met my closest friends freshman year through a friend who I came to Quinnipiac with from home. She really liked the girls in her hallway, and since I hung out with her alot I got to know her hallmates too. If I'm awake at 2am on a Tuesday I'm either finishing homework or chatting with my roommates. Some events that happen every year include Midnight Madness (the kickoff of basketball season, with performances by Quinnipiac's spirit groups), the holiday dinner, and May Weekend (which has been discontinued as of this year). People party a lot on weekends, which sometimes start on Wednesday night, both on campus and off. Fraternities and sororities are present on campus, but do not rule the student body. They mostly serve as philanthropic groups rather than partying ones. On a Saturday night, you can go out to eat, go to the movies, or see what student-planned activites are going on on campus.
