Quinnipiac University is a wonderful school when it comes to preparation in the Workforce. There are a lot of opportunities for internships, and they have wonderful opportunities such as the 3+1 MBA program. One of the most concerning issues is the lack of diversity, I often see myself as the only women of color in a room. They do make some effort to be more inclusive, but it feels more the students then the actual school. Clubs are a lot of fun, as someone who is involved in a lot. One of the social groups I am involved in is Student Government, and I get to work with amazing people. I think that this university could accomplish many more things if they increased the budget, as we are struggling often to give the clubs the funding they deserve. The sport games do deliver, even though we don’t have a football team I have never felt an empty void without one. Our hockey team is what we are most known for, and now that I am a student here I see why. They are always super hype with good attendance, free merchandise, a band, cheerleaders, you name it. Living on campus hasn’t been bad at all, when my friends from other colleges get shocked when they see that I got a suite-style dorm as a first year. There was one incident where there was a leak in my bathroom and the wet ceiling fell onto one of my roommates, but at least it makes for a funny story. I’m not sure if I would recommend going here or not, I probably would as long as you don’t have to pay for the whole tuition. It is awfully expensive.
I believe that is a wonderful school that has a lot of potentials to get students into the roles they wish to inhabit in the near future. The only problem is the tuition and the aid. The tuition is a lot to handle and even with a ton of scholarships under your belt, there is sometimes always a gap that needs to be filled with increasingly more scholarships. But only so few can get that lucky.
Quinnipiac University is a great college. There nursing program is excellent and well known across the country, and I feel honored to be chosen. I was a freshman last year in 2020 when Covid was affecting normal life everywhere. Despite mask wearing, hybrid classes, social distancing and no family visitors, QU made great effort to create activities and events, from on-line to outside, with Covid restrictions enforced. They screened students regularly, made student health available and took care of us. Even though the cafeteria food was not always great, there were many healthy choices. In addition, QU made great efforts to improve by bringing in local food trucks for a variety of options. The best part for me was my dorm living. I lived in a suite of 8 other nursing students. We felt like we were living in our own apartment. We got along well, and I've made life long friends. Most of us are living together this next year in another dorm. Hopefully this coming year, we'll have more liberties and socializing, including sporting events, as Covid is hopefully being thwarted by the vaccine.
Quinnipiac University is a culture that I am proud to be part of. Besides the amazing academics, D1 sports, friendly people, and variety of good food, this is an amazing community focused on making our mark in the world. The education received here is like no other, with class sizes that make you feel like a person, not just a number. On weekends catch students hiking the Sleeping Giant state park across campus, or exploring downtown. There are over 120 clubs and organizations including Greek Life to get involved in, as many students do. It's the ability to walk around campus and have others hold the door for you, to smile as you pass by someone. Here you can make new friends in every class, and then come back to the dorm and socialize with your roommates who are like family. This school is simply put, amazing. I'm so blessed to be a part of this community. Go bobcats!

Mostly white rich kids, really hot girls, trouble makers,
Most people at Quinnipiac are very friendly.
The teachers are very personable. The classes in my major interest me and all other classes bore me. The work is not overly excessive.
The campus is gorgeous, which is what attracts so many people. Everyone hates the visitor policy though. People often complain that the school takes more money from the students than it should. If you don't have a car, you probably won't spend much time off campus.
You do not need to be a part of Greek life to make friends. Alot of people choose to drink and party on the weekends but if it is not your thing, there are activities every Friday and Saturday night on campus.
It's a small university with small classes that allow you to really get to know your professors and classmates. There is plenty of assistance available if you need help outside of class.
I have gotten so much more than i could imagine so far in my college experience. It has been a rough journey however but I am extremely dedicated to finish with a degree in the year 2012. It has been very valuable to attend because without education these days, where can you go? Education is the single most important aspect in life in the present time. I hope to remain in college untill i reach my Masters Degree and become a spanish teacher or translator.
I wish I had understood how much money I was really spending. Deciding between colleges at 17 years of age, I only looked at majors and social life. However, Quinnipiac is one of the most expensive schools in the U.S. and while I love this school so much, the loans I have taken out are monsterous and cause me great anxiety.

It's really fun, but frikken expensive.
The worst thing about Quinnipiac is the expense. I love everything about my school so that is really the only downfall I can think of. It is way too expensive (although I do think it's worth it).
A person who does not wish to put in the effort in their classes should not attend this university. Most of the classes require study time outside the classroom in order to pass. If a person is not motivated to be a successful student, they should not attend this university.
That we are a prestigious University with great professors, great community opportunities, and widely accepted of every one every where, there is always something to do here at Quinnipiac, there is always something to get involved in no matter what youre interests.
The most frustrating thing about my college was not being able to choose a roomate in my freshman year and the difficulty that was involved in making changes once I got there. At the time when I was there, parking for students was extremely limited and difficult.
The best thing about my school is that the professors are so dedicated to the students. They want their students to succeed and be good in the profession they are going for. Most professors are available out of the classroom with any questions students may have. They are generally prompt with responding to emails.

The stereotype of students is that they are all rich kids that wear vineyard vines. While this may be somewhat true, it does not apply to the majority of students. Many students receive financial aid, and all of my friends have scholarships and financial aid.
