4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I'm from the area that I go to school in so I am very familiar with the places that are around and enjoy them.

Party Scene: You can have fun wherever you go whether it's in your own dorm room or in someone else's. There are opportunities to have a good time.

Administration: I think overall public safety does a good job at keeping everything and everyone in tact at this school. Although, they say they would drive students or pick them up when needed if it's an emergency but when asked they rejected people.

Scholarships: I don't approve of the way they give out scholarships as they only give scholarships based on SAT scores. I'm not the best test taker and I do not like that they are basing it off of test scores.

Campus Food: It's not the best food. They tend to have the same food everyday and there is not a huge variety of food. It's not terrible food, but it's not the best.

Off-Campus Housing: Most people live in Aspen which is a great place to live. It is very clean and pretty affordable if with a group.

Party Scene: There is not much to do at Quinnipiac. House parties get broken up very early so the only places to go are in New Haven or wait until you are 21 to go to Aunchies or Russian Lady.

Scholarships: Since it is an expensive school, I did get good scholarships but I still needed to take out student loans.

Campus Food: They cross contaminate on EVERY campus. They do not start serving lunch until ridiculous hours on the weekends and for people, like I, who are early risers, we do not want breakfast at 1pm.

Campus Housing: Although it is very hard to get good housing due to a lottery system, the rooms are very clean when arriving and they are in good condition.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The problem with the campus food is that it does not have variety. I feel as if I am eating the same food every day. At first after a long break The Rat is not too bad, but then I eventually cannot even bare the thought of eating it. The caf is not always too bad, it just closes too early. The lines also get very long because there are not always enough people working. I find myself resorting to snacks throughout the day instead of a nutritious meal.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus is not as bad as college students say. Yes, it would be nice to live in a little house with my friends and not have to listen to an RA or deal with loud, rude neighbors, but I like being on campus. I like being just a short walk to class and stopping by my friends rooms to say hello. Having meal plan money is a perk of living on campus, too, considering I would not enjoy swiping my debit card every day. The housing process is stressful, but you end up loving where you live and it will feel like home.

Party Scene: Its a club/bar party school, although a lot of people throw down on campus in dorms, and there are a lot of sports house and frat house parties; you just have to hear the memos.

Campus Housing: Nicest dorms I've ever seen on a college campus. There are two separate campuses; Mount Carmel Campus (Main Campus), where all the classes are and all of the freshman and sophomores live, and York Hill Campus, where all of the juniors and seniors live. Freshman get a choice of doubles, quads, and suites, while sophomores, juniors and seniors have the option to live in apartment style suites or motel style suites.

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.
