The diversity at Quinnipiac University seems to be one of the school's least favorable aspects. Although the University continues to make diverse recruiting strides, the main ethnicity at Quinnipiac remains Caucasian. Quinnipiac also has a fairly obvious gender difference. Sixty percent of students attending the school are female while only 40 percent are male. The majority of students resides in the New England and Tri-State areas. The largest state representation at Quinnipiac is New York.
The Office of Multicultural Affairs aims to maintain a campus community where the needs of a diverse student body are addressed and where uniqueness is embraced, celebrated, and advanced. However, despite embracing diversity, the stereotype around campus is that there is a typical "Quinnipiac girl." This girl resides in either New York or New Jersey, wears Ugg boots and a North Face jacket, and usually drives a nice car. Truth be told, in the winter, you can see many different versions of this "Quinnipiac girl" every day.
