Overall Experience: The courses at this school can vary depending on major. I am a health science major, in the ELMPA program, and my courses are very hard. However, they are manageable if you put in the time and use all the resources on campus. I regularly go to office hours that my professors hold or i email my professors and they usually are pretty great with helping me. I also go to peer fellow sessions and sign up for tutoring appointments. I think the peer fellow program is absolutely amazing because someone that has taken the class before knows exactly what you are going through because they have already experienced the class.

The class styles can vary deepening on the class. Most classes i have are strictly lectures. Some classes are interactive, sitting in groups, and presenting. The class size is usually 30 students unless it is a class that most people take. For example, my anatomy class had 80 students, but that was the largest class i ever had and probably will have.

Most professors are absolutely exceptional and go above and beyond to make sure they are doing their best to help you understand the material. There are a few teachers that don't care and aren't the best.

Overall Experience: Having a degree from Quinnipiac is pretty average; however, if it is in the school of Health Sciences is is very well known. Most health science majors are in a specific program (OT, PT, PA, Nursing) and can find jobs right after graduating. As for the other majors, it is alright.

Health & Safety: Quinnipiac is rated one of the safest campuses in the US for a reason. Never have i felt unsafe. Public safety is always around and there is no crime. Even when i am walking alone at night back to my room i feel safe. Quinnipiac also has the blue light system, although i dont believe anyone has ever used it.

Campus Housing: Quinnipiac dorms are average. For freshman, the best building would have to be mountain view but besides that, all the other dorms are all equal. Commons and ledges are basically the same because they are both quads. Dana and Irma are doubles.

For sophomores, Hill and New Village are the best. I think that New Village is slightly better than Hill because they are newer and have more space. Hill is good for two things: air conditioning and a kitchen, but you have to clean your own bathroom. Old Village isn't bad, it is just older. Complex isnt very nice. Perlroth, larson, and troup are awful. The class of 2019 was so large that some students are not living on the main campus and have to live on York Hill. This is a bad problem that probably should be fixed soon if they keep accepting an abundant amount of students.

For juniors and seniors, York Hill is the living option unless you move off campus. The dorms are average but a plus is having a kitchen. Many students move off because it is much cheaper.

The housing process is an absolute nightmare. The number of people that you need for a dorm change every year and it becomes hard to add people or to cut people from your group. It is a lottery system so if you get a bad number you need to worry about living in a bad dorm or cutting someone from your group.

Greek Life: Greek life is not a very big deal at Quinnipiac. Being part of greek life definitely is a great way to meet new people and get involved in different community service events. If you are not part of greek life it does not affect your college experience at this school. People generally don't care if you are in a sorority or a fraternity. There is no greek housing available on campus, but some fraternities have "houses", which is a group of boys from one fraternity living in one house. There are fraternity parties, but are not always open to everyone.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Quinnipiac Hockey is the best! Almost every student has attended a game because it is the only sport in the school that is really well known. When most people hear "Quinnipiac", they always say "hockey". Unfortunately, most other sports teams do not receive the same attention. I wish more students would go to the basketball games or the soccer games.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love Quinnipiac! Best decision of my life.

Party Scene: There are a good amount of options both on campus and off campus during weekends. Options are available on campus for those who prefer not to drink. There are also options on campus for hanging out with friends and just having a good time. There is also the option to go off campus for those who prefer a more exciting night with a large group of people. Shuttles are always available, as well as Uber for those who prefer that type of transportation.

Party Scene: There are not many on-campus parties during the year, and when there are, it seems that they are shutdown pretty fast by either RA's or Public Safety. However, if the parties are contained they can be very fun if you are with the right people. The party scene can have a positive impact on student experience if you choose to party with people who are similar to you and if they are people you can trust. Peer pressure can be avoided if you choose your people wisely.

Academics: Quinnipiac is distinct from other schools because it offers small classroom sizes in order to offer more personal academics. You feel connected as a classroom, and its great to know that the professor knows your name. It makes the learning environment more positive, and I feel that it helps me to focus in the classroom.

Diversity: Quinnipiac is a very diverse campus. It is amazing how accepting we are of one another on campus. The diversity really brings on a positive atmosphere and I am proud to say that I am a part of such a respectful, accepting group of people.

Drug Safety: Although it is inevitable that some college students will drink or use drugs, not all students do. Campus officers are successful at reinforcing the rules and regulations that Quinnipiac has against alcohol and drugs. They do there best to make Quinnipiac a safe environment.

Drug Safety: Alcohol is definitely present on campus, but I have never witnessed any drugs. Quinnipiac has a no tolerance policy for drugs and alcohol. If students choose to drink on campus, the drink cannot be in the bottle or can it came in.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I feel that I made such a great decision choosing Quinnipiac. After completing my freshman year, I can honestly say that I've taken many quality courses and have gotten a lot of knowledge out of them. Additionally, the professors know how to teach their students and want them to do well. Professors are always available for office hours. The largest class size that I had was about forty students, so the professor knew everyone's names.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Career services are very strong at Quinnipiac. Every student is assigned an academic advisor that will help with scheduling, internships, etc. There are a ton of networking events, especially for business students.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus. I feel that Public Safety is always around when needed. I have not heard of any campus crime since I have been to Quinnipiac.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I lived in Dana English Hall and I absolutely loved it. The double rooms are the biggest that I've seen doing college tours. The RA's doing a great job of getting residents to meet one another. Most of the dorms are only about a five minute walk to main campus, but Mountainview (freshman suite dorm) is probably more like ten to fifteen minutes!

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek Housing is not allowed at Quinnipiac University. About twenty-five percent of students are involved in Greek Life, but there are many other organizations to be a part of if Greek Life does not interest you! There are definitely some sororities that are more cliquey than others though!

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: School spirit is very strong at Quinnipiac. The gyms offered on both the Mount Carmel campus and York Hill campus are great sizes and clean. Up at York Hill, there is the beautiful TD Sports Complex where the varsity basketball teams and hockey teams play!

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I couldn't be more happier that I made the decision to attend Quinnipiac University. I love that the school offers so much to do on campus and there are so many clubs and organizations to be a part of. The school itself is stunning and very well maintained. Quinnipiac has the best school spirit. There is always an exciting game to go to, especially the hockey games at the TD Sports Complex! I also strongly believe that Quinnipiac has great professors who actually care about their students and their success. Classroom sizes are typically small, and many professors get to know their students personally. I can't wait for the years to come!

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I think it would be smart if they would just have more students in one class because when it is time for registration, I do not get all the classes I want because it is always full.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It is good. In the beginning of the year, they have a job fair for the students.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

The school provides students with exceptional academics, real world experiences, lifelong relationships, a sense of independence, and a stronger sense of identity. Initially, though, there is an adjustment period when arriving to campus. There is a certain type of student that goes to Quinnipiac, one that has money and wears nice clothes, but if you take some time and explore other avenues, there are so many other people and things beneath the "surface" stuff. The orientation teams at Quinnipiac are made up of nurturing, fun upperclassmen who make the new students feel at home.

The faculty also does a great job of getting to know students on a personal level. From the professors to the people working in financial aid, everyone seems to want to get to know the students and help them in some way. There are also so many organizations and clubs you can join to meet people who have the same interests or career paths as you. The location of the school is another key factor for many students. The campus is so aesthetically pleasing that it puts you in the study/college/independent mode. Its close proximity to New York City and Boston make it a great place to be if you want to take a weekend trip with your college friends. The location also provides students with the option to intern right in New York City.
