9 Students rated Quincy University
It is a good school but some things could improve but other than that everything is alright. With partying it happens every weekend our security stops the parties but students still find ways to drink their alcohol. Almost everyone in our school plays a sport but not many people ever go to the games because most students go home on the weekends or just don't care enough to go.
It's a great school overall. The class sizes are small which allows for one-on-one help when needed. The professors have regular office hours so it's easy to get in touch if you have questions. Having an adviser who knows about your major is a huge plus because they can help you choose classes that will help you graduate as quickly as possible.
The university is a great experience to showcase how it feels to being a college oriented town. The cost will definitely defer some of their potential students away however the class sizes are wonderful and the professors offer hands-on learning. The food is not a good selling point but the school is still worth it.
I absolutely love Quincy University. I had my eyes set on it as soon as I got into high school. I could not be happier! The students are friendly and helpful, and the staff is nothing but pleasant and always willing to help out when asked. I would recommend this school to anyone.

One of the most important things to do in finding the right college, is to do research. Doing research on a specific college or university will allow the student and the parent to choose wisely. Sometimes it is not about what the campus looks like or where it is located. I believe that it is important to know what the college has to offer: degrees, majors, activities, and tuition costs. It is also good to know if the college or university will be beneifical and will meet the needs for the career that the student wishes to pursue. As far as getting the most out of the college experience, there are plenty of nice people on campus to make friends with. Getting involved in sports, campus clubs, and campus clubs will help with social life. In my opinion, I think that living in a dorm during freshmen year will help a student connect more to the campus and build a friendship with many people living in the dorm. However it is really up to the student to make a college experience worth their while.
QU is small, laid-back, not very academically challenging, and Catholic only in name but not in practice.
There wasn't a lot that I didn't like about the school, but I guess the one big drawback of Quincy University was housing. The dorms and campus apartments are starting to show their age, and compared to other universities, I would say that QU is below average in this department. From what I hear, they have plans to do some remodeling and possibly will be building a new dorm or two in the near future, and I hope this is in fact the case.
A person who is caring, friendly, and someone who takes their education seriously.
The maintenance staff is not very good and did not do anything when my roommate and I were up for hours every night it rained because our window leaked. The dorms were typically always loud and it was hard to study at night. I attended Quincy University for the 2012-2013 school year but I am transferring to St. Ambrose for my 2013-2014 school year because I like their nursing program and the up to date equipment that I believe will help me to accomplish my dream of being a nurse.
My classmates are amazing!
The location is a big part of my choice and my brother went here.
I absolutely loved the small community feel that Quincy University had. Because of the small class sizes, I was able to get to know my professors on a more personal level, which was very beneficial to me and the other students. Quincy University had a lot of wonderful traditions to get students involved that you just don't find at other larger schools in larger communities. Overall, Quincy is a very supportive community which takes a lot of pride in the success of the university and the students and faculty who make that success happen.
No one shouldn't attend Quincy! It is a great school- and it is a a great fit for everyone.
Quincy University is very friendly! Since it is a smaller school ther is a sense of community. It makes you feel like you are at home.
Small school with good people and professors. A lot of clubs and extracurricular event to attend. Great opportunities to meet new people and Franciscan heritage
I wish that I would have known how many flight hours they provide each year. I am majoring in Aeronautical Science (Professional Pilot), and my goal is to have as many flight hours logged in before I graduate. Apparently Quincy University does not meet my needs
